Nineties sex symbol Lara Flynn Boyle was photographed in Los Angeles on Saturday looking more like MADtv’s Ms. Swan than the woman who once graced the cover of Rolling Stone with her female Twin Peak‘s castmates.
I was reading what one of my favorite “gossip” websites, Pajiba, had to say about it and Dustin Rowles proved a good point. He said:
“When I see pictures of Lara Flynn Boyle or Meg Ryan in their current state, I don’t feel venomous…What I feel is a sort of empathetic helplessness. I feel sad, not necessarily for the way Lara Flynn Boyle looks now, but about the circumstances that drove her to this.”
And while I’d love to throw up comparisons photos of her next to a grumpy alien, I too feel sad that she can’t handle aging naturally.
Injecting your face with neurotoxins is never the best way to avoid the inevitable, it’s only the best way to look inhuman and have people A. make fun of you or B. feel sorry for you.
