Faye Dunaway


Born: 14 January 1941
Birthplace: Bascom, Florida
Best known as: The star of Bonnie and Clyde and Network
Faye Dunaway made a splash in Hollywood in 1967, earning her first Oscar nomination for her starring role in Bonnie and Clyde (with Warren Beatty). She went on to popular and critical success, appearing with Steve McQueen in The Thomas Crown Affair (1968) and with Jack Nicholson in Chinatown (1974), and winning an Oscar for Best Actress as William Holden's ruthless mistress in Network (1976). The 1980s saw her star power diminish, although she was memorable in Barfly (1987) and as Joan Crawford in Mommie Dearest (1981). Although no longer a leading lady, she has continued to appear in films, including a small role in the 1999 remake of The Thomas Crown Affair.
