Judging by the treatment Lara Flynn Boyle got from several public outlets, why she keeps her personal life to herself is understandable. That, however, is one of the many catalysts for celebrities going radio silent after attaining fame and fortune. In many cases, the industry actors grew passionate about may send them into a spiral of despair. Whether it’s hectic schedules or money-hungry execs, there has always been a trade-off for being an entertainer, which is something Boyle came to terms with during her lengthy career.
In 2017, Chris Gardner from The Hollywood Reporter caught up with Boyle as she participated in the 15th annual LA County Walk to Defeat ALS. During their interview, Boyle fielded questions regarding her prior roles, lessons she’s learned as an actress, and, most importantly, the horrifying truth of how common sexual abuse is in the entertainment industry.
At the height of the notorious Harvey Weinstein allegations, Gardner asked Boyle if she was on the receiving end of predatory behavior in Hollywood, to which she responded: “Oh, all the time. All the time! It happens all the time.” Boyle later added that while it’s hard to process when it occurs, it usually remains a vivid memory if you’re ever a victim of it. “It still stays with you,” she said. “You still remember things that were not quite appropriate, but you move on, and that’s all you can do, I guess.”
