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 Anonymous||reply 49||05/04/2021|
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.

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. .

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.

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.

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.

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" .
