Lara Flynn Boyle: Too Plastic for Hollywood Now?

Lara Flynn Boyle made a rare public appearance in Beverly Hills on Sunday, April 14th, to the shock and awe of celebriphiles everywhere. At 43, the blue-eyed brunette star, clad in sunglasses, scarf, hoodie and and white pants, looked every bit the casual Sunday stroller. However, in the photos, that were released just this week, the Twin Peaks and The Practice actress was almost unrecognizable, with a puffy face and lips that resembled Anglelina Jolie‘s after a bar fight. What happened to her?

She has never discussed it, but her changing looks have fired up speculation for several years that she has had some plastic surgery done, according to Us Weekly. Obviously. The actress used to be one of the hottest acts in Hollywood. She dated celebrities like Jack Nicholson, David Spade, Matthew Perry, and Harrison Ford.

The one-time Las Vegas actress most recently starred as a cannibalistic witch in the horror-comedy Hansel & Gretel Get Baked, which was released back in February. Also, back in 2010, it was was reported that Boyle had been working on a pilot for her own reality series, although it never materialized. What reality?

In her heyday, Flynn Boyle came under fire for being the poster child of the late 90’s too thin craze. She was bashed several times for looking like a starving shadow of herself and being a bad role model to the children. No one EVER thinks about the children! (Gasp)

Fortunately, she seems to have escaped that and put on a few pounds, but now, poor Lara has joined the ranks of plastic surgery cautionary tales. She is in good company, with the likes of Meg Ryan, Melanie Griffith, and Jennifer Grey. Why does anyone in Hollywood get plastic surgery anymore? Will her new “look” put her on the “No” list in Hollywood?

    The problem is that when it comes to plastic surgery, people take it too far.

  • Plastic Surgery Isn’t All Bad

    I broke my nose playing basketball and went to a plastic surgeon to get it taken care of instead of a regular doctor because the plastic surgeon was simply better at surgery. My breathing was cut off and he was one of the best surgeons in the area. Not all plastic surgery is bad. It is when it is taken to extremes that it is. Who are we kidding though — Hollywood is all about looks. It is fiercely competitive. Fiercely competitive.

    I know the average american doesn’t understand this. I liken it to this. When I was in high school, I knew a girl that I thought was just the prettiest thing on two feet … then I went to college and she seemed very ordinary. In college I met a girl that was just perfect, then I graduated from college, moved to the big city and the college girl seemed just ordinary. In the city, I met a corporate woman that I though was just as sexy as can be, then I met an exotic dancer and the corporate woman seemed ordinary. After I met the exotic dancer, I went to a party and met a major porn star, and the exotic dancer became less sexy. I went from a small town to a major city and women just got better looking. There are people out there that will simply blow your socks off.

    The competition is fierce as far as looks go. It is no different in Hollywood and the major stars are constantly having to fend off up and coming actors and actresses that are better looking. Yes, you will occasionally get an actress that makes it solely on her abilities, but really that is rare. In fact, if you look at many established actresses, early on in their careers they were models or dancers. The best example I can give you is Rachel Weisz. She is a very good Oscar winning actress, but in her younger days, she was an amazingly stunning model.

    Hollywood and the acting world is just a crazy world. It isn’t like average everyday America — nothing close.
