For once, Hilary Duff doesn't have to work hard for the money. The mom-to-be earned a giant financial windfall after being fired from the new flick Bonnie and Clyde...before she ever got started. Duff, who was cast to play Bonnie, was axed from the flick after the powers that be found out she was pregnant. But there's no reason for Lizzie McGuire to cry over spilled breast milk. Thanks to some smart lawyers and an iron-clad contract, the blonde actress still gets paid handsomely. She will receive a whopping $100,000 for doing nothing at all. In the meantime, they're now looking for a replacement for Duff. Among the contenders is Mamma Mia cutie Amanda Seyfried. Over the weekend Duff was pretty tight-lipped, maintaining that her job there is done. Duff told TMZ, "I don't wanna give them any more press than they've already gotten off me ... I think [my] baby is a little bit more exciting." This will be the first child for the 23-year-old actress and husband/hockey player Mike Comrie.
