Faye Dunaway (1968)

Faye Dunaway (born Dorothy Faye Dunaway on January 14, 1941 in Bascom, Florida) is an Academy Award winning actress. Daughter of an Army sergeant, Dunaway studied at the theater department of Boston University and graduated from the University of Florida. Her first screen role was in 1967 in Hurry Sundown, but in the same year, she got a role in Bonnie and Clyde which garnered her an Oscar nomination. It was in the 1970s that she began to stretch her acting muscles in such films as Three Days of the Condor, Puzzle of a Downfall Child, Little Big Man, Chinatown, and Network, for which she won her Oscar.

In the 1980s, although her performances did not waver, the parts grew less compelling. She played Joan Crawford in the overwrought Mommie Dearest and the alcoholic in Barfly. In a later movie, "Don Juan De Marco" (1995), in which Dunaway co-starred with Johnny Depp and Marlon Brando, a reviewer noted that the actress "appears to have had a major facelift as she's barely recognizable." Writers Sally Ogle Davis and Igor Davis have quoted one unidentified Hollywood producer as stating that Dunaway's "deep-plane" plastic surgery had "erased her own face."

Romantically linked to a series of men ranging from the comedian Lenny Bruce to actor Marcello Mastroianni, Dunaway has been married twice. Her first husband, from 1974 until 1979, was Peter Wolf, the lead singer of the rock group the J. Geils Band. Her second, from 1984 until 1987, was Terry O'Neill, a celebrated photographer; they had one child, Liam O'Neill (born 1980). In 2003, however, O'Neill revealed that his son with Dunaway was adopted, not biological, though the actress had long maintained the opposite.

Dunaway has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame at 7021 Hollywood Blvd.
