What is wrong with Lara Flynn Boyle?

These photos are alarming. Stick-thin legs, fat face, bloated abdomen. What is her medical condition? I'm glad she's married and has someone to take care of her.

Alcoholism + anorexia.

by Anonymousreply 110/23/2012

Gah. Poor thing.

by Anonymousreply 210/23/2012

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.

by Anonymousreply 610/23/2012

According to another thread, she's supposedly nearly brain-dead.

by Anonymousreply 710/23/2012

Drugs and anorexia. All supplied by her Momanager. Just like Heigl with her Momanager.

by Anonymousreply 810/23/2012

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.

by Anonymousreply 910/23/2012

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.

by Anonymousreply 1110/23/2012

Thanks, R10. You can add Kirsten Dunst, Brook Shields, and Jodie Foster. The last two in particular had awful mothers.

by Anonymousreply 1210/23/2012

Didn't that blind item say Jack Nicholson got her into major drugs and that is how she's f'd up?

by Anonymousreply 1310/23/2012

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.

by Anonymousreply 1410/23/2012

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.

by Anonymousreply 1510/23/2012

Never heard that BI before? So some believed Nicholson got ehr into drugs? If so, that's sad.

by Anonymousreply 1610/23/2012

Kirsten Dunst's Momanager is also a fright.

Welcome to aging.

She looks like she's living in a mental hell.

by Anonymousreply 1910/23/2012

I want only the best for her - she has a lot of talent. Hollywood sucks.

by Anonymousreply 2010/23/2012

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.

by Anonymousreply 2110/23/2012

I also want to take a moment to say that I loved her in "Happiness."

by Anonymousreply 2210/23/2012

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.

Major issues:

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.

by Anonymousreply 2710/23/2012

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.

by Anonymousreply 2810/23/2012

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.

by Anonymousreply 2910/23/2012

[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.

by Anonymousreply 3010/23/2012

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.

by Anonymousreply 3110/23/2012

R31 - Yes, LFB is younger than Sherilyn.

by Anonymousreply 3210/23/2012

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.

by Anonymousreply 3310/23/2012

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?

by Anonymousreply 3410/23/2012

Now this scares me:

by Anonymousreply 3510/23/2012

She's like a younger Lindsay Lohan. Take heed, Lara.

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?

R39, LFB Quote: " I'm the kind of woman who, when she walks into a party, all the other women leave the room."

by Anonymousreply 4010/23/2012

Why is David Spade a lady magnet ? What is he up to? Hanging w/Lara Flynn?

by Anonymousreply 4110/23/2012

R39 - She was very good in The Practice.

by Anonymousreply 4210/23/2012

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?

by Anonymousreply 4310/23/2012

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...

by Anonymousreply 4410/23/2012

No need for the racism, R43.

by Anonymousreply 4510/23/2012

I'd call this stunning:

by Anonymousreply 4610/23/2012

Booze and drugs.

by Anonymousreply 4710/23/2012

She was stunning:

by Anonymousreply 4810/23/2012

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.

by Anonymousreply 4910/23/2012

My god her feet are deformed.

by Anonymousreply 5010/23/2012

I thought she was "cute", certainly not "stunning".

by Anonymousreply 5110/23/2012

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.

by Anonymousreply 5210/23/2012

She was pretty stunning in The Temp.

by Anonymousreply 5310/23/2012

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.

by Anonymousreply 5510/23/2012

She's the new me.

by Anonymousreply 5610/23/2012

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!

by Anonymousreply 5710/23/2012

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.

by Anonymousreply 5810/23/2012

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.
