Lara Flynn Boyle anorexia

Lara Flynn Boyle Lara Flynn Boyle, Nov. 2008

Just when I thought things couldn't get worse for Lara Flynn Boyle, these photos of her appeared last week.

If these pictures are not evidence of Lara's struggle with an eating disorder, I don't know what is. Her hair has become incredibly thin on the top of her head and her legs are alarmingly stick-thin.

And if starving her body weren't bad enough, her face continues to go through a startling metamorphosis. After having a rhinoplasty years ago, it's evident Lara's had more plastic surgery on her face. She's now got the Meg Ryan "trout pout," and a very swollen face (from botox injections...or bulimia, perhaps?).

Check out this article from the Mail Online:

"Lara Flynn Boyle is widely believed to have turned to plastic surgery in her quest to remain youthful in recent years, but as the star arrived at Mr. Chow restaurant in Beverly Hills yesterday, she looked anything but fresh faced.

The 38-year-old's bloated face, drooping jowls and bursting trout pout rendered her almost unrecognisable from the actress who first shot to fame in director David Lynch's cult television series Twin Peaks.

Her famously fragile, childlike frame, which was left swimming in a beige pant suit, only added to her worrying appearance.

Lara, who formerly starred in popular US series The Practice and chalked up big screen credits including Men In Black 2, has struggled to keep her career as buoyant in recent times.

Six years ago, Lara, who once dated Jack Nicholson, admitted she dreaded getting older out of fear her Hollywood roles would dry up.

Then just 32, she said: "I know I may be running out of time. There are just not that many roles for older women."

She added: "On a vanity level, I am not looking forward to ageing at all - I think I look pretty good now."

I hope Lara gets help...STAT. She's on that dangerously slippery death.

It's awful! She looked so wonderful in the Men in Black. It's amazing how fast she has changed, whatever she has done to herself.

It should be illegal for pretty girls to get plastic surgery... If something isn't broken, why try to fix it??? Nothing good can come from it.

I've been watching episodes of The Practice (late 90s, early 2000s) and her nose and face looked fine. Why have a rhino? There was nothing wrong with her nose. She's always been so stick thin, though. Her IMDB profile says she hasn't worked as an actor since 2014. Other female actors are getting roles in their 50s, Meryl Streep who is I think near 70? can't take all the roles.
