Lara Flynn Boyle and David Spade were a thing for a while. Then Lara Flynn Boyle was suddenly with Jack Nicholson, a relationship that carried on for about two years.
In an interview with Details Magazine, David Spade now reveals how he found out that Lara Flynn Boyle and Jack Nicholson were dating. Pretty much the same way everyone else did: from The Enquirer.
When Spade was asked about Boyle, he replied, “When we dated, Lara Flynn was not bad at all. She was a blast. Then the Jack Nicholson thing happened.”
Early on, Spade says Lara Flynn Boyle was adamant that she was not interested in Nicholson. Like all great Hollywood love triangle tales, the whole thing hit the air between her and Spade while that air was thick with pot smoke.
“Nicholson asked Lara Flynn Boyle out in front of me while we were all smoking a doob somewhere. She got mad because I didn’t stick up for her. I said, ‘I’ve been in this town long enough to know when I’m outranked. You’re either gonna go out with him or you’re not.'”
Boyle’s response, not years in the past, rings with the clarity of today’s headlines.
“She goes, ‘No way. He’s worse than Trump!'”
@SarahPalinUSA Looking more like Lara Flynn Boyle.

But apparently Jack Nicholson had something Lara Flynn Boyle couldn’t resist sampling.
Spae continues, “The funniest part was, they got caught in a car crash, and she crawled out of the sunroof and yelled, ‘I have a boyfriend! I can’t be here!’ Like, ‘Oh, now I’m your boyfriend?'”
And finally, that insult to injury reveal that Boyle was no longer exclusively on Spade’s arm.
“I got a call from the National Enquirer. That’s how I found out. She and I didn’t talk too much after that.”
The real loser in that Jack Nicholson vs. David Spade story is Lara Flynn Boyle.
