Lara Flynn Boyle Opens Up About Being a Tabloid Target in Rare Interview

Lara Flynn Boyle is giving a rare look into her life.

The 51-year-old Twin Peaks actress is back on the big-screen in her first film in five years, Death in Texas, and she sat down with THR to discuss the new movie and reflect on her career.

Lara revealed that despite her decades in the entertainment industry, she struggles with watching herself on screen and that she’s only “seen about 45 percent of anything” she’s ever done.

“No, there are many reasons why I don’t watch,” she explained. “One of the silly little reasons is I don’t want to get mad at the editors. I don’t want to get frustrated. It’s there, it’s left, and I’ve got to move on.”

The actress also addressed what it’s like living in the public eye and whether she pays attention to headlines written about her.

“They’re like mosquitoes,” she said. “The minute you leave your house, it’s like mosquitoes. They’re like, ‘Boyle has left the side entrance. Boyle is now going out the main gate.’ But I chose this profession. I would be a total jerk if I complained about it. If I’m going to take the paycheck, I’m also going to take the bad publicity. It’s going to happen.”

Luckily, the stories often don’t reach Lara, who revealed she doesn’t have a computer.

“Could not tell you how to Google,” she said. “Couldn’t tell you how to do any of it. Nothing. I have enough wonderful people around me who can point me where to go and tell me if people are saying nasty things or good things. I still have an old phone, not the one that can look up where you are or where you’re going. I don’t do any of that — nothing. No thank you!”

She added, “Ignorance is bliss. I’m smart enough, I don’t need that. I can watch the news and I love a newspaper…”

One of Lara‘s Twin Peaks co-stars sadly passed away last year.
