Lara Flynn Boyle keeps it casual in down jacket and flannel top as she spends her 53rd birthday doing chores in rare sighting
Lara Flynn Boyle kept it casual as she celebrated her 53rd birthday last week in a rare sighting.
The Twin Peaks vet was spotted outside her home in Los Angeles on Friday, wearing a down coat, flannel shirt, and Notre Dame sweatpants as she tended to some chores.
The makeup-free actress carried a garbage bag over her shoulder as she strode towards a recycling bin in her boots.
She scooped her brunette hair back into a no-fuss bun and accessorized with a dainty pair of gold earrings and delicate choker necklace.
It’s not often Lara is pictured out and about, with the last time she was pictured appearing to be back in February 2022 during a night out at Craig’s.

Back in June 2021, she gave a rare interview, as she geared up to release her first film in over five years.
Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, Boyle – who was promoting the action drama Death in Texas – shoots down the interviewer’s suggestion that it could be considered a comeback role, saying: ‘I never went anywhere.’
Best known for her role as Donna Hayward in the ’90s cult television series Twin Peaks, Boyle gave a refreshingly frank interview, saying that she wasn’t afraid ‘to look like s***’ in the new film.
‘It was a commitment to myself to go in with no vanity,’ she says of the part. ‘I was like, “Look, I’m going to look like s****. Make me look even crappier than I already would.” It was selfishly, again, it was like being back in acting class.’
The actress is rumoured to have had plastic surgery over the years, often spotted out with a dramatically different look to how she is remembered on screen.
But the star says: ‘I’m an actress so it’s a stretch to become that selfless. [Laughs] Hello! I know! We love attention. But I was like, “Let’s be raw and absolutely 100 percent not self-involved.” It was a little bit of work to be that mindless and focus completely on another human being.’
Born in Iowa, Lara moved to California to work as a child actress in the 1986 film Ferris Bueller’s Day off.
She then went on to appear in Amerika in 1987 then Dead Poets Society in 1989.
