If you wouldn't have told me who that was, I never would have known it. How sad. I used to think she was really hot...but not anymore.
The overdone lips and (normal) tummy poof are not as bad as the sagging jowls. Why would you be doing fillers and lip injections but not want to tuck those? They age her twenty years.
Alcoholism + stroke.
Bloating from liver failure? Her legs are very thin. Either that or she's pregnant, which horrifies me.
According to another thread, she's supposedly nearly brain-dead.
Drugs and anorexia. All supplied by her Momanager. Just like Heigl with her Momanager.
More about her stage mom, please. She admitted she had a stage mom, I'm like any background you can surmise. She used to be stunning.
r9 can't remember but I'm always suspicious of Momanagers. Lindsay has one, Heigl, Boyle, Christian Slater, Britany Spears, etc. Every single one of those people are screwed up max.
Liver disease can cause bloating in the abdomen and muscle wasting in the limbs.
No idea about the puffy face, though.
Thanks, R10. You can add Kirsten Dunst, Brook Shields, and Jodie Foster. The last two in particular had awful mothers.
Didn't that blind item say Jack Nicholson got her into major drugs and that is how she's f'd up?
Does she lie about her age? Even in her early appearances with a normal face, she came across as being older than her stated age.
Lupus maybe? I dunno.
She looks really confused in those photos and so I wonder if the BI R13 is referring to is true after all.
Never heard that BI before? So some believed Nicholson got ehr into drugs? If so, that's sad.
Kirsten Dunst's Momanager is also a fright.
Welcome to aging.
She looks like she's living in a mental hell.
I want only the best for her - she has a lot of talent. Hollywood sucks.
My goodness...that's sad. And she's quoted as saying, at 32, that her clock was ticking for roles. I mean, (1.) there aren't many well-paying roles for anyone of any age anyway, and (2.) She probably wouldn't look that much different today than at 32, if her health had remained intact.
I also want to take a moment to say that I loved her in "Happiness."
I love her kooky ex girlfriend character in Wayne's World. Funny and endearing.
Could be colitis, or a really messed up GI tract.
The roles have dried up since the Practice had gone off the air.
Sorry, but Nicholson didn't "get her" on drugs. She was a grown woman and made her own choices. He's a shit but his reputation proceeded him and she wanted in.
I don't think anyone is saying it wasn't her fault, but he may have opened her up to the idea and not cared about her well being. In that type of situation, they are both responsible.
She would've made a good Jean Grey in a good X-Men movie back in the early 90's. I don't know why I think this.
[quote]Lupus maybe? I dunno.
Funny, I was thinking to myself that her odd shape is eerily reminiscent of someone I knew who had bad lupus. This woman was also stick thin, but with a very bloated face and abdomen. She eventually died from it.
She was an entirely attractive woman and she ruined herself. Maybe not a ravishing beauty, but attractive nonetheless.
She's only 42? Seems like she's been around forever.
R31 - Yes, LFB is younger than Sherilyn.
I saw her at a club with David Spade in Scottsdale years ago. She was one of the most beautiful women that I have ever seen. It is so sad. She doesn't actually seem that bad in the Conan clip. She is coherent...just paranoid.
Aside from the belly, she looks like every other actress - duck face, bony limbs and no ass.
Really - I see women like this every day. What's different about LFB?
She's like a younger Lindsay Lohan. Take heed, Lara.
[quote] saw her at a club with David Spade in Scottsdale years ago. She was one of the most beautiful women that I have ever seen.
I can second this. I saw her in NYC years ago, on the street, she was tiny and she glowed. I can't explain it, she was glowy.
Funny that this thread popped up. I have been watching The Practice lately and have to say she was great as Helen Gamble. She is a pretty good actress, very sad to see her now like this.
And she seems to have had quite a bitch reputation if I recall correctly, is that true?
LFB Quote: " I'm the kind of woman who, when she walks into a party, all the other women leave the room."
Why is David Spade a lady magnet ? What is he up to? Hanging w/Lara Flynn?
R39 - She was very good in The Practice.
So according to the NY Post as linked above... The only thing wrong with Lara Flynn Boyle's feet is that they are in need of a manicure. Really? Is the reporter a chimp?
The jowly thing she has going -- A former bulemic told me that long term bulemics develop this puffiness in their lower face due to leakage and absorption of stomach acids in the mouth and under the tongue. Something about it causes degredation in the muscle tone. With the years and gravity, hers shifted downwards. Whether this is true or not...
She was quite serious with David Spade, or so he thought. They were dating when she started screwing around with Jack Nicholson. I have seen Spade out in Scottsdale with a lot of ridiculously beautiful women, most of them really young blondes. He is cocky as hell...maybe they like the attitude? The money can't hurt either.
My god her feet are deformed.
I thought she was "cute", certainly not "stunning".
My 70 year-old alcoholic aunt has a body just like that.
I really don't understand why these actresses destroy their faces with botox and fillers. Get a subtle nip/tuck or lift and forget all that other crap.
She was pretty stunning in The Temp.
she's looking hot
Her original lips were gorgeous. That Conan interview shows how ridiculous the trout pout looks. They just don't move right.
She's the new me.
Great in "Twin Peaks" and, seconding R22, especially great in "Happiness" where she won me over yet again and gave me hope for her future. Makes me root for her to this day.
"'Raped at 12'. 'Raped at 13'. What do I know about rape? I'm just another sordid exhibitionist..."
That hilarious awful lunch with her hausfrau sister. And especially that looooong silent scene on the couch with Philip Seymour Hoffman, his hand inching towards her. SEE IT IF YOU HAVEN'T!
Remember when she was stoned or drunk on a plane, and they couldn't keep her in her seat in first class, and she was flashing her boobies? She climbed into the seat with some stranger and tried to curl up next to him.
It's my favorite celebrity plane story, excepting "Whizzy" Izzy Stradlin and Gerard Depardieu both peeing on the floor.
I thought then that it was the beginning of the decline.
Speaking of Izzy Stradlin, GNR band mate Duff McKagan claimed to be on the fated plane flight home to Seattle with Kurt Cobain shortly before Kurt was found dead, but a lot of people doubt Duff's claims. Duff also claims that he asked Kurt to stay with him.
How come famous people never die from eating disorders? Excluding Karen c 30 years ago.,
That first pic, especially, looks like she's getting butt-fucked, but really all of them do.
Its called GENETICS. Have you see her mother....its like looking into a crystal ball of her future.
Wow after watching video at R26 - what a bitch in search of a pity party.
