Lara Flynn Boyle

Mystery Behind Shocking New Pics

10/18/2013 10:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1017_laura_flynn_boyle_fame_launchSomething seems different about Lara Flynn Boyle ... at least judging from these new pics of the actress, but people close to LFB tell TMZ that NOTHING'S WRONG, she's the victim of a few bad photo angles.

The former "The Practice" actress was out shopping at The Glen Centre in L.A. earlier this week looking noticeably different than she has in the past.

We called several people close to Lara to find out if perhaps something was wrong -- but we were assured by them the actress is perfectly fine ... and just seems to photograph poorly these days.   In fact, one person said she saw Lara 2 weeks ago and she looked fantastic.

The problem, it's not that there was just one stray shot -- Lara's look is consistent in a series of photos taken that day, from multiple angles.

Yeah, we're stumped too.

Very sad! She doesn't look healthy at all. I think besides aging and weight/bloat in her face, there's what looks like nerve damage... maybe too much botox? And I'm guessing that's her Mom in the pictures... same body shape and fashion sense. Although, it looks like Lara has an eating disorder, her bottom half is shapeless and rail thin. Her barrel shape up top is probably due to alcohol or a significant stomach surgery. She's a smoker though, so guessing alcohol. Looks like she had a rough night. So sad though, I hope she doesn't read these comments... can't be helpful to an already very clearly low self-esteem. Way to go TMZ.

I would guess she is very sick. I had a friend being killed by leukemia who looked similar from the drugs to try and help him. I bet you hear something sad really soon.

She looks like a young Jackie Stallone, I'll bet she will see these pics and book another appointment to get stuff injected into her face. Some of the most beautiful women have a few laugh lines but even more beautiful is that they are comfortable in their own skin.
I think people who F up their faces continually, have some deep insecurity. I would think therapy to make themselves feel confident would be less costly than mutilating their faces to look like wax blow up dolls.

Something's definitely wrong. Maybe she's undergoing chemotherapy. Either that or dialysis.

LFB had an exotic look to her when she was dating Jack Nicholson. After the breakup her look changed. I hope her plastic surgeon had his license revoked. If she has her lips fixed, stops smoking, makes an appointment with an endocrinologist and colors her hair I think she will be okay. It looks like she is wearing something heavy under her shirt.

It's hard to be sympathetic to celebs because they have such easy access to plastic surgery 24/7. We don't know whether to make fun of her because she over did it with the surgeries or feel bad because she may really be sick. The moral of the story is that celebs need to be removed from the bubble of publicists and management that tell them they look good no matter what. All plastic surgery does is make you wrinkle free at the cost of looking like an ALIEN and looking like the cat lady.

Forget about the face -- she is seriously anorexic! A skeleton frame dressed in jeans with a puffed up face ... I wish she could see how uniquely beautiful she is in her natural form, no matter what her age, and to realize that the only way to optimal beauty is through excellent health (she'd feel better, too!). She needs help and I pray that she gets it.

Are you guys just now catching on that this woman had bad plastic surgery several years ago?

It is really quite sad to see someone who was once so stunningly beautiful and now see her look so shockingly different. What could possibly have caused such a dramatic change? She once had
