Lara Flynn Boyle: Saturday Night Live

It wasn’t her major breakthrough performance as Donna Hayward in Twin Peaks, but her role as Assistant District Attorney Helen Gamble in ABC’s The Practice that got Lara Flynn Boyle invited to host Saturday Night Live‘s 19th episode of the 26th season on May 12, 2001. The then 31-year-old actress performed in sketches with upcoming comedy legends such as Jimmy Fallon and Will Ferrell, and hits back at the gossip about her weight in two of them.

Save The Starving Actresses Foundation: Lara Flynn Boyle urges viewers to help save the starving actresses of America.

Hi. I’m Lara Flynn Boyle, and I wanted to take a moment of your time to discuss a very important issue. For the last two years, I have devoted myself to a cause that has touched my life. It is a foundation called Save the Starving Actresses.. and we desperately need your help. For just the price of a cup of coffee, you can buy Courtney Cox.. a cup of coffee. And, believe me, it would be a wonderful start. For as little as seven cents a day, you can sponsor a starving actress.

    Why is the “The Scarlet Letter” skit so hard to find. It is like NBC made it disspear because it offended gays or something.
