Dunaway's Son Liam Adopted, Says Ex

FAYE DUNAWAY's son LIAM is actually adopted, according to her British photographer ex-husband TERRY O'NEILL.

OSCAR-winning actress Dunaway, 62, has always led people to believe she is 23-year-old Liam's biological mother, but her ex has stepped forward to set the record straight.

O'Neill, who was married to the screen star for four years from 1983, says, "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."

O'Neill tells American magazine the STAR he begged Dunaway to reveal the truth about the adoption but she refused, and didn't even tell Liam himself until he was six years old.

What rubbish....Faye Dunaway was visibly pregnant in the movie "The Champ". That is why director Franco Zeffirelli was very careful photographing her.
