No wire hangers -- and no tricky Manhattan real estate loopholes!

Oscar-winning actress Faye Dunaway may be evicted from her apartment on Manhattan's Upper East Side -- if her landlord has his way.

In a lawsuit filed Tuesday, the unnamed landlord charges that Dunaway, 70, has been keeping a rent-stablized one-bedroom walk-up at the low (by Manhattan standards) price of $1,048 a month, according to the New York Times. Similar pads in the area rent for twice that amount.

Dunaway's supposed crime: The cheap abode is not Dunaway's primary residence, as required by rent stabilization laws. (According to the guidelines, rent-stablized properites cannot be second homes.)

The Mommy Dearest and Chinatown actress also keeps a house in West Hollywood, Calif. -- where she has both her car and voter registrations.

The star's son Liam Dunaway O'Neill was also named in the suit. The pair didn't return calls to the Times for comment.
