Whatever happened to Liv Tyler?

She used to look like she was going to be a big star. Now she's all but vanished. Was it a mistake for her to play an elf?

by Anonymousreply 10102/13/2015

She has no talent and her looks have faded. That's what happened.

by Anonymousreply 110/18/2010

Nice lady. Decent model. Beautiful face. Recurring issues with weight. And frankly, not much of an actress.

The end.

Had a family, lost interest in acting.

& Gweneth Paltrow is still working.

by Anonymousreply 410/18/2010

I actually think she got the most out of her decent (some would say beautiful) looks and limited acting ability. She had her 15 minutes, she accepted it, had a family, and isn't trying desperately to stay in the limelight by doing some stupid reality show or something. And, she could easily do that since she's "The Daughter of Aerosmith Frontman Steven Tyler."

Few have long, consistent careers in the spotlight. She seems content with what she got.

I thought "has gained quite a bit of weight" was going to be one of those DL sort of things in which she's looks normal rather than deathly thin, but looking at recent pictures, she really has become a fatty.

At the link is a recent picture. She's the one on the right (in blue).

is her mother (bebe buell) really nuts?

by Anonymousreply 810/20/2010

Actually she is still working, but seems to be in indies now. One picked up for distribution, another in post-production. Could it be that she doesn't get the offers because she is disinclined to enter into showmances like Reese, Renee, etc?

Agreed with R2--it was a lack of talent that did her in. She only had a career due to nepotism.

by Anonymousreply 1210/20/2010

She's a simpering, talentless idiot. And her mother is delusional and sociopathic, thinks she can sing and still is trying to make it in music biz when she has zero talent. Her book is embarrassing but a fun read.

R10 she (i'm not going to type her name for reasons that anyone who has seen her behavior on any i'net board could tell you about) thought that Elvis Costello was sending her secret messages within his songs. Messages that only she could see or understand. messages that basicly said he was still in love with her. Seriously nuts. She is a horror when ever she shows up on any board. She caused a awsome groupie board to shut down in big part because of her rants. she's kinda like the candyman, write her name online too many times and she shows up

Given her parentage, Liv seems to have turned out okay. She loves her kids and she's not psychotic.

R19tLiv Tyler is profoundly dyslexic and has ADHD. Her mother is batshit in that she tried to convince Todd Rundgren that he was Liv's father. However, Todd Rundgren is a proper gentleman in that he paid for specialized supplemental tutoring for Liv when she was a child. ADHD and being profoundly dyslexic is not the same as any intellectual disability at all.

Liv: Not the best actress in the world, but very nice and level-headed.

About Bebe Buell and Elvis Costello: it's a decade or so since I read Buell's autobiography so I'm paraphrasing, but she was apparently convinced Costello was sending her love messages through his songs, years after they'd broken up and he'd married someone else. And it was obvious at the time of writing that she still believed it. I think there was some stalking involved too.

Bebe Buell used to post on the old Groupie Central board in the late 90s/early 00s. She was going through a divorce at the time - she was married to some deadbeat Z-list rocker who was later briefly married a television actress whom he stalked and beat up. The soon-to-be-ex hubby would show up on the boards to pick fights with Buell. Their fights were all over the boards. It's probably on the Wayback Machine somewhere.

Always thought she was gorgeous, and seems like a sweet woman, but I'm not surprised she's had the career she's had. A lack of raw talent combined with a lack of ambition will get you where she's gotten.

by Anonymousreply 4508/23/2012

She seems sweet and kind as a person. She has played in a number of really good movies. She doesn't have to be always an actress and she doesn't have to prove herself all the time when it comes to acting. She is not the nerdy and greedy type of the highly professional actress. She is not a machine and she has proved that she is a very special actress. She certainly has her type.

by Anonymousreply 4611/19/2012

Somewhat off topic, but I am so glad that Steven Tyler and that dreadful younger woman broke up.

by Anonymousreply 4711/19/2012

I read an interview with Liv Tyler not long after the LOTR movies had come out. She was told that she needed to lose weight or risk losing roles.

I don't know if she would have had a huge career if she had lost the weight, but by refusing to diet she very likely lost major opportunities that went to other slimmer actresses.

Speaking of weight loss, there's a Daily Beast piece on how all the actresses on Modern Family have lost weight since the show became a huge hit.

by Anonymousreply 4811/19/2012

Seems likeable and is still attractive. Was beautiful in her 20s, which probably influenced how she got roles.

Since this is a gossip board (ahem) does anyone know about her romantic life? She's single since she split from the english rocker. There was a blind item not long ago about a late night host who had a particular actress on his show specifically so he could sleep with her - the guesses were Jimmy Fallon and Liv.

Overachiever. I always thought she did pretty well for herself given her average talent. So, instead of wondering why she's not doing much these days, I am amazed she accomplished what she did.

She seems fairly level headed and doesn't seem to be sweating her expected and natural decline.

"About Bebe Buell and Elvis Costello: it's a decade or so since I read Buell's autobiography so I'm paraphrasing, but she was apparently convinced Costello was sending her love messages through his songs, years after they'd broken up and he'd married someone else."

This was an old response in this thread, but I'd hardly call what Costello and Bebe had a relationship! She was a groupie and latched on to him for a few months while he was on tour. IIRC, while fucking around with Bebe, Costello was still married to his first wife at the time.

There's a photo of Costello walking so fast, Bebe looks as if she's running after him. Guess he realized his big mistake! Bebe was a super famous groupie perhaps Costello wanted to see what all the hoopla was about!

Costello did marry the female bassist from The Pogues, Cat something and his current, third, wife is jazz singer/pianist Diana Krall.

Rumor has it Costello is hung!

Liv Tyler brought the beauty on Wednesday to a New York City fundraiser to help feed poor children in South Africa.

The 36-year-old actress served as a co-chair of The Lunchbox Fund fall fête held at the Buddakan restaurant.

Liv was in full autumn mode at the fundraiser that featured artwork by Michael Stipe, Lou Reed, Shepard Fairey and Alan Cumming among others.

by Anonymousreply 8310/10/2013

Bebe Buell's memoir is hilarious. All she does in it is talk about how beautiful she is and how sought after she was during her heyday as "filet mignon to the stars." She never considered herself a groupie; she was just someone that very rich, beautiful, talented people wanted the have around all the time.

According to her memoir Elvis Costello was the great love of her life. She claimed that she was impregnated FOUR times by him, which resulted in three miscarriages (I guess her poor, overworked vagina was not meant for birthing babies) and an abortion. According to her he told her ""Baby, I don't believe in abortion, but I will not help you with the child. I will not be involved with this pregnancy. I will not. You did this on your own."

She also claimed to have spoken with Costello's then wife Mary. She said that Mary Costello pleaded with her to have an abortion and stay away from Elvis; "I have money here in the safe in the house. I'll give you money to stay away from my husband. His soul cannot rest; you are haunting it. He speaks your name when he sleeps. I'm at the end of my rope." She said that Mary Costello urged her to have an abortion, telling her "Elvis has bad genes and I have had deformed fetuses with and I have had miscarriages with babies with seven heads." I find ALL of that hard to believe.

Buell did have the abortion. She says she changed her mind at the last minute as she was laying on the table and screaming "stop!" but the abortionist said it was too late to stop.

Costello eventually dumped her, just like any rock star dumps any groupie. But she's convinced that he regards her as his lost great love, although he won't admit it.

By all accounts she's a lovely person.

Which is why I hesitate to point out how dreadfully unflattering that outfit is, but I must! The porportions are terrible, it makes her look like she has the longest torso in the world, and the shortest legs.

Really R92? I think Liv is fucking gorgeous, especially when she was younger. She's one of the very few celebrity offspring who could have gotten a modeling contract even without being some rock star's daughter. Those Jagger and Geldof daughters got NOTHIN' on Liv in her prime. As for her acting, well, she aint great, but the majority of her peers aint great either so she's in like company.

Many of you act cruel and absurd toward Liv Tyler. If you live your own life well with ethics and creativity, you don't have to get off by saying nasty things about very successful people. she certainly is beautiful and was perfect for Lord of the Rings and other movies. She's always been very elegant and feminine. If she's put on a little weight and is taking care of her family good for her.
