Lara Flynn Boyle - How is she still alive?

She has been a chronic alcoholic for decades. Look at the distended belly and toothpick legs? How can her liver still be functioning?

What distended belly? You can’t even see her middle in that jacket.

She has a similar body to Sutton of RHOBH. Makes me certain is an alcoholic too.

It’s almost like whatever surgical procedure was done to her face caused paralysis or a permanent frown-y face. But yeah, I have an aunt who’s a big alkie who has the same spindly legs, bloat and stoop.

Of course the first time she's seen in public in over a year is during a trip to the liquor store.

R10 In college I hung out with film geeks who loved David Lynch. All the straight guys had the hots for her. Us gays thought Sherilyn Fenn was the prettier one.

R25 There was some gossip that her husband married her as a trophy because he likes being married to a "celebrity" and that she married him for his money.

I remember her taking Jack Nicholson to the Emmy's! It was funny because Jennifer Aniston showed up with Brad Pitt and complete stole her "I have a movie star boyfriend" thunder.

Sheryl Lee, Madchen Amick, Sherilyn Fenn and Moira Kelly all look better than she does. If we ever get more seasons of Twin Peaks in the future (that is if the remaining cast doesn't die first) and they need to bring Donna back they should just recast her with Moira again or with Winona Ryder.

I doubt she'll be alive in 10 years. If she's not already in end-stage liver failure, she will be soon enough. It's clear she spends her days drinking and taking trips to the liquor store. She likely sits at home all day in a drunken haze, chain-smoking. It's sad. She was talented and pretty.

by Anonymousreply 4905/04/2021

There is also no hope for her if she's in liver failure; it's not like kidney disease where there's at least dialysis to keep you alive while you await a transplant. With liver failure, a transplant is your only option, and they don't give them to chronic alcoholics and drug abusers.

Jack Nicholson spit LFB out just like he did Anjelica Huston. By all accounts, he's a difficult customer. Karma can be a bitch, though, and he's all alone now. (Even Anjelica said this in a relatively recent interview.)

Anjelica Huston stood by for some fucked up shit. I have no sympathy for her.

Why did she not do TWIN PEAKS: FIRE WALK WITH ME? Did she start going off the rails between the series and the movie? Such a pity; she had terrific presence.

by Anonymousreply 5605/05/2021

I feel very sorry for her. She used to be so vain. Now she has clearly let herself go. To the point where she’s thrown in the towel. She does look a bit better in these photos than in previous ones. Hope she is getting some help. I don’t know if this is solely alcoholism, though. Her face looks like there is another medical condition occurring too, or side effects from steroids, etc. .

by Anonymousreply 5705/05/2021

If she'd thrown in the towel, she'd join Yasmin Bleeth at the buffet.

by Anonymousreply 5805/05/2021

Supposedly she objected to the nudity required for Fire Walk With Me, r56, but she went on to do movies with nude scenes so most people assume there was some kind of falling out between her and Lynch. Given that the character wasn’t included in the recent reboot (was Donna even mentioned?) it seems likely that’s the case. If there was an acrimonious split with MacLachlan after the show ended that was probably also a factor.

I imagine LFB had all kinds of offers after Twin Peaks and people around her telling her she didn’t need to tie herself to that show. Even Kyle MacLachlan limited his role in FWWM because he wanted to move on and not get typecast as Agent Cooper. Twin Peaks had flopped hard after the second season so continuing on in those roles probably didn’t make a lot of sense when other opportunities were presenting. Donna Hayward was one of my favorite characters in the original series so I was disappointed she didn’t do the movie but she had a long successful run beyond TP so I can’t really blame her.

by Anonymousreply 5905/05/2021

Jesus. Does the woman have a single loving, caring family member or friend?!?!

She should ABSOLUTELY not be drinking.

How can AA City aka Los Angeles not help her?

I remember on the show the detective used to say "aces!" I always liked that saying.

Yes, we had to be thin back then. I realize now how lucky I was to be so skinny.

She was also really good on the Practice (during the early 2000s? I think). Snark aside, this is really sad.

IIRC, it was briefly mentioned that Donna was living in another state and working as a doctor or nurse.

I don't know why these women don't just let themselves age naturally. What she has done to her face is awful.

and people call me ugly.

by Anonymousreply 6905/06/2021

Except that she used to be a movie star, her current state is not that remarkable. I know tons of 50+ women who look worse than her - without the drinking. And I know drinkers who last well into their 70s. It does seem women’s bodies /livers are harmed faster than men’s by alcohol for some reason. But if she cuts back or abstains for periods, she could well last into her 70s. Look at Liz or even Liza - periods of abstinence with intermittent binges let them live pretty long lives.

Some juicy stuff in here. Mark Frost (co-creator of Twin Peaks) confirmed that the show snuffed out the budding Cooper/Audrey romance because of Boyle. I'd heard that before (all TP fans have), but I thought it was just a rumor!

Audrey was 18 and Cooper was vaguely in his late-20s. He wasn't her teacher or anything. I don't see why them dating would be a big deal.

She reminds me of a few female lifelong alcoholics I know, they get that distended abdomen with skinny arms and legs. It also looks like she’s had a stroke, or some sort of paralysis.

by Anonymousreply 8205/07/2021

Everyone posts those photos from 2013 but in 2019 she looked a lot better. Not great but there had been some improvement.

I've never been convinced it's alcoholism despite the gossip mavens insisting this is all her own doing and it's "her insides matching her outsides now" or what have you. Very few alcoholics look like this. She may well be alcoholic but there's something else going on as well.

Also, the photos from the DM a few days ago show her looking even better than in 2019.

Her legs are thin in a creepy way but overall she looks better than she did back when her appearance changed drastically.

I agree there’s something more going on than alcohol - especially because she’s looked like this for over 10 years, when she was still pretty young.

by Anonymousreply 8905/07/2021

R85, that photo is from 2018.

There has been speculation for years that she has an autoimmune disorder and the chronic prednisone dosing was contributing to her physical changes (puffy face, abdomen). It's amazing if she was on Pred that she didn't have the usual weight gain, a la Kathleen Turner.

I always thought LFB was a very beautiful woman, especially on "The Practice" .
