Remember Lara Flynn Boyle??? The super skinny jawn that got all knifed up and ish??? Well get a load of what she looks like now:
Lara Flynn Boyle looked like a completely different person on Thursday night at an IFTA screening of her old 1992 movie, Where The Day Takes You in Santa Monica. The 40-year-old actress was reunited with Dermot Mulroney, who co-starred with Boyle in the teenage runaway movie, along with Will Smith and Ricki Lake. But, whilst 18 years on Mulroney looks the same, only a little older, greyer and with a few extra lines, Boyle looks decidedly strange. Boyle’s face looks as if it is pulled skin tight and her expression is pretty much frozen.
The actress looks strained when she tries to smile and her eyebrows seem incapable of any movement at all. Meanwhile, the Peak Practice star’s cheeks are suspiciously rounded and her pillowy lips are huge, swollen and puffy. One thing that hasn’t changed at all though is Boyle’s stick thin frame. She is every bit as tiny as she was back in the day when she sparked rumour after rumour about an eating disorder. Boyle’s skeletal figure in a tutu caused a stir at the 2003 Golden Globes and did nothing to quash the reports.
But she has persistently denied having an eating disorder and she poked fun at the rumours in 2002’s Men In Black II, in which she played an alien who disguises herself as a lingerie model. After eating a male attacker and noticing a bulge in her tummy, she throws up. She has also been plagued with rumours of plastic surgery too.
And the experts seem to agree that Boyle has had more than a little help from the scalpel over the years.Dr Paul S Nassif, a facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon and rhinoplasty specialist in Beverly Hills, says: ‘Lara Flynn Boyle appears to have had rhinoplasty, lip augmentation, Botox, facial fillers, and possibly a browlift and facelift. ‘She should refrain from having any additional procedures and would not benefit from having further work performed at this time.’ Miami plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Salzhauer agrees, saying: ‘Lara Flynn Boyle I feel has gone overboard with the fillers to her cheeks and lips. ‘The Botox to her forehead and Rhinoplasty has given her a nice enhancement to her face. In time the fillers in her cheeks will go down and that will give her a more natural look.’
Meanwhile, the latest rumour concerning the actress is that she is heading to the small screen once again, with her own reality TV ‘docu-series’ on the E! Network. ‘The cable network has greenlighted a pilot presentation for the project, which will follow the Practice alumnia as she splits her time between her life in Texas and her marriage to real estate investor Donald Ray Thomas II and her Hollywood-centric lifestyle in Bel Air,’ a source says.
No comment. Plastic surgery is no joke…
