Hollywood film legend Faye Dunaway arrived at amfAR’s star-studded gala in Cannes, France, with the most unusual accessory — a scale to weigh her food and calculate her calories.
Famously feisty Dunaway appeared at a table at the Hôtel du Cap-Eden-Roc with film producer Tova Laiter, and a bulging paper bag. Then, a spy said, “She sat at her dinner table and pulled out the scale from a paper bag.”
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.”
Also at the gala were Leo DiCaprio, Katy Perry, the Village People, Uma Thurman, Karlie Kloss and emcee Kevin Spacey. The night raised more than $30 million.
Dunaway has earned a reputation for quirky behavior. She’s been rumored to shop at high-end boutiques and yell at staff as they follow her around. In the ’90s, she reportedly blew up at a flight crew for not upgrading a coach ticket from JFK to London’s Heathrow, screaming, “Don’t you know who I am?” The crew then got revenge as she slept by grabbing a bunch of wire hangers, an homage to her “No wire hangers” scene in “Mommie Dearest,” and putting them on the seat next to her.
