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.
Lara's childlike frame was swimming in her beige suit
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.
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 slope...to death.
