The actress announced the wrong Best Picture winner with Warren Beatty at this year's ceremony
Iconic actress Faye Dunaway found herself at the centre of the biggest Oscar controversies in recent times this year when she was part of the twosome that read out the wrong name for the recipient of the Best Picture award.
Faye Dunaway was part of the duo who read out the wrong winner at this year's Oscars
Having stayed silent since the monumental gaff in February, the 76-year-old star has now come out to talk about the incident and describes how "very guilty" she felt about the mistake that saw the cast of La La Land take to the stage to accept the award that should have gone to Moonlight.

Middler shines as a why and witty Hollywood agent in this John Logan play.
Bette Midler is Sue Mengers. In I’ll Eat You Last, the funny, outspoken actress plays the infamous 70s talent agent with such clarity and wit, that you can’t help but believe her throughout. Midler is the sole performer in the production and, while the set is visually interesting, she herself hardly moves from the couch for the duration of the play. But if you think this would make for a boring or static production, you clearly haven’t seen Midler act to her fullest, which is exactly what she is doing in the John Logan play, which opened last night (Wednesday, April 24) at Broadway’s Booth theatre.
The setup is simple – the play is set in 1981, when Mengers, who represented stars of Barbra Streisand, Faye Dunaway, Michael Caine and Gene Hackman is already losing relevance. But she isn’t one to moan about it – not on the surface at least. Middler is the perfect actress to bring the quippy, somewhat cynical, occasionally foul-mouthed Mengers back to life. She is an actress experienced enough to not only fill up the stage, but to also possess enough knowledge of the harsh world of Tinseltown, giving her character some essential depth. I’ll Eat You Last captures the essence of a woman who has experienced Hollywood to its fullest and lived to tell the tale.
Midler has been collecting praise from fans and critics for her spot on performance.
Unlike the Condor, the viewer may only pick up the salient points. There's a smattering of names for several chiefs and directors: Wicks, Wabash, Atwood, Higgins, etc. Even the switchboard operator is given the title "The Major." There's a woman, Catherine Hale (Faye Dunaway), whom the Condor takes hostage and quickly embarks on a semi-romantic partnership with. When he's not busy connecting the dots, the Condor is being hunted by a tall gun-for-hire with a foreign accent given the codename Joubert (the indefatigable Max Von Sydow) and another assassin named simply The Mailman. It doesn't seem to matter much but, for what it's worth, it all seems to have something to do with a possible war in the Middle East and oil.

On the occasion of the dedication of the world's tallest skyscraper (which I for one would never consider building in earthquake-prone San Francisco, by the way), an A-list party is planned for the top floor. This way to the glass-enclosed elevator, please. Architect Doug Roberts (Newman) and builder Jim Duncan (William Holden) are proud, but they don't know that Duncan's cost-cutting son-in-law (Richard Chamberlain) has compromised safety for profit. Sure enough, when a small fire breaks out, things go really bad really fast, and firemen Michael O'Halloran (McQueen) and Harry Jernigan (Simpson) arrive on the scene holding their hoses.

Like an episode of MTV's barely-legal late-night dorm life soap "Undressed," with 20 times the creativity but without any more substance, "The Rules of Attraction" is a stylish, glib, endemically energetic diversion that's indulgently entertaining but could have and should have been deeper.
Enthusiastically adapted by Roger Avery (co-writer of "Pulp Fiction" and writer-director of "Killing Zoe") from the whimsically subversive novel by Bret Easton Ellis, it's a black comedy about the feral underbelly of modern campus life, full of cinematic invention but narrative superficiality.
Populated by teen-TV lightweight types trying to gain edgy credibility, "Rules" stars James Van Der Beek ("Dawson's Creek") in the movie's most resonant performance as antihero Sean Bateman, a deviant college cool-jerk -- who, for the trivia-minded, is the younger brother of the title character in Ellis's "American Psycho."

In a recent interview, Faye Dunaway's ex-husband has spoken out about how she is not the biological mother of her son, Liam, despite her attempts to convince the public otherwise.
Faye Dunaway's ex-husband, Terry O'Neill has revealed that her son, Liam, was actually adopted. The British photographer has tried to set the record straight after 23 years, as Academy Award-winning actress, Dunaway, has been trying to convince people that she is Liam's biological mother since his birth.
O'Neill and Dunaway were married in 1983 and were together for four years. Now, he reveals that: "Faye was desperate to have a baby. She wanted to be a mother because her own childhood had been so rotten. But there came a point when she had to face the fact that kids weren't coming."
