She is rarely portrayed in public and chooses to live her life out of the spotlight.
But Twin Peaks actress Lara Flynn Boyle was pictured on a rare outing Monday morning, the first time the actress has been seen in nearly a year.
Boyle, 51, stopped by a liquor store in Los Angeles to pick up a few things.
Spotted: Lara Flynn Boyle, 51, is first seen in nearly a year as she stopped by Frank’s Wine and Spirits in Los Angeles on Monday morning.
The ’90s icon – who is married to real estate investor Donald Ray Thomas II – was seen in cuffed jeans and a quilted red jacket.
She hopped out of her Mercedes and donned a face mask before entering the store with an empty backpack.
Boyle recently starred in the action drama Death in Texas alongside Bruce Dern and Stephen Lang. Filming took place in late 2019 and the film premiered at the 14th Rockport Film Festival in Rockport, TX in November 2020.
Prior to that, her most recent role was in Lucky Dog in 2015.

Boyle sparked concern among fans when in 2018 she was pictured drinking from a Johnnie Walker Red Label bottle while in the driver’s seat of her car.
In the state of California, not only is it illegal for a driver to consume an alcoholic beverage in a car – whether or not it is parked – but it is also illegal for a passenger to drink in a car. This is called illegal consumption.
Under the Liquor License Act, it is an offense to have an open container of alcohol in a vehicle or alcohol readily accessible to the driver (in the front seat).
In October 2017, Boyle gave a rare interview to The Hollywood Reporter as the #MeToo movement began to take off.

When asked if she had ever been abused in her career, the actress replied, ‘Oh, all the time. All the time! It happens all the time, ‘
“ I looked at it on two levels: do I want to flip burgers or do I want to accept that someone is not appropriate with me? I chose the other side.
“He always stays with you. You still remember things that weren’t quite appropriate, but you move on and that’s all you can do I guess.
“I support all the actresses who have come forward.”
