Hilary Duff is pregnant—which is awesome. [My inner-Cathy disagrees! -- Editor] However, her pregnancy might have cost her a plum role in an indie flick. Hilary had been set to play bankrobber Bonnie Parker in “The Story of Bonnie and Clyde,” a re-imagining of the classic outlaw tale. This would have been a big deal, considering that the role was played by heavy-hitter Faye Dunaway in 1967. However, the makers of the new version say they are recasting, suspiciously close to when Hilary announced that she is preggers. A source with the film said, “Hilary won’t be available until next June. If we could wait we would.” Ouch. [Jezebel]
After the jump, other stars who allegedly lost work because they got knocked up.

The 22-year-old is demanding reparations from Justice Secretary Jack Straw after he allegedly fired her for…being too pretty. Officers said the size 4 Kajila received frequent inmate attention due to her make-up and revealing clothes, posing a security risk to herself and the prison. (Really they’re just jealous!) Kajila claims the other officers bullied her for her appearance and called her a “stupid little girl.” (Hey, It’s not her fault she’s hawt!) I guess besides being locked up, ugly prison guards are another drawback to the clink. [Daily Mail]
