There may be a good reason for why Faye Dunaway is wearing every spool of fabric found in the black section at Mood. She needs to hide the food scale she’s about to smuggle into the party.
Page Six had a story yesterday about how Faye Dunaway weirded some people out at the amfAR gala during Cannes when she pulled out a scale from a brown paper bag and weighed all her food at the table.
The source says that Faye ordered a “bland meal” and then weighed it before putting it in her mouth:
The stick-thin screen siren then proceeded to weigh all her food — including her leafy salad. The “Chinatown” actress, 75, “asked for a very bland meal,” a spy at the event said, “which she then proceeded to weigh. She weighed all of her food, including her salad and fish, before eating. We’ve seen a lot of stars make strange requests, but this was a sight.”
Page Six adds that Faye has earned herself a “quirky” reputation in Hollywood and they brought up that story of how flight attendants dubbed her “The Bitch” after she threw many diva-fied tantrums including one where she spit out the line that always works: “Do you know who I am?!” They also mentioned the time in 2013 when she was shown a suite outfitted for a disabled person at the Sunset Tower Hotel and screamed at the employee, “Do I look handicapped to you?”
Sure, Faye could be on a crazy diet to stay skinny, but she’s also 75 years old. Maybe she’s on a medical diet. I’m more than half her age and sometimes I have to get all snowflakey when my insides act up. Sometimes you just gotta order a plain cheese quesadilla with no sauce at El Torito and when the server looks at you like, “Bitch, aren’t you special?”, you have to look back at them like, “Bitch, file a complaint with my acid reflux.”
Someone once told me that their friend (yes, this is some “my friend’s second cousin’s dog groomer” shit) told them that every time Faye goes to a business dinner, she orders one meal to eat there and one meal to go, because she’s not the one picking up the bill. That’s smart! So I’m disappointed that Page Six’s source didn’t also say that Faye said to the server at the gala, “Make that two bland meals, Christina darling, and pack one to go.” Yes, in my mind Faye Dunaway calls everyone “Christina darling,” because it stuck with her.
