Paul: Shelley Duvall hears voices…



I am sure you’ve all been wondering, what the hell ever happened to Shelley Duvall, right?  Well, after the 1994 earthquake in LA she skipped town for good and moved to a tiny town in Texas.  That’s why she hasn’t been in anything worth mentioning since Home Fries.  

Acoording to the Globe, Duvall’s neighbors in Blanco, Texas are concerned about her recent behavior. She thinks that her property is some kind of portal for extra-terrestrials and she walks around all night looking for them.  She also flashes the headlights in her parked car to communicate with them.   They say she walks around town looking like a damn mess, muttering about aliens.  

If this is really true (right now it’s just hearsay) it’s very sad.  Duvall is one of my favorites, she’s always so awkward yet engaging.  Part of me thinks that her neighbors are just talking shit for fun because they’re jealous of her because she’s so much prettier than they are.  I talk to people who are bat-shit crazy all day and almost none of them are this bad. On the other hand, it’s not difficult to imagine her falling apart, is it?  Anyway, hope she is doing okay.  Check her out in this scene from the live-action Popeye movie…

    I fucking love her! Fairy Tale theatre anyone?!! I don’t believe she’s crazy she’s just thinner and prettier smarter and cooler than those self righteous podunk townies.
    -also- we don’t know that her property isn’t an extradimentional portal…

    She might very well have strange beliefs… but aren’t ALL religions
    and mysticism strange beliefs? Also, it sounds like her beliefs are
    a LOT more palatable than Victoria Jackson’s recent quotes…

    I really enjoyed Shelley’s work in Fairytale Theater and just about any movie she was in. What’s happened to her? I can’t remember if it was 3 or 4 years ago, we traveled to Blanco Texas and were having lunch in Riley’s Bar-B-Q. Their Order/Pickup area kinda has you walking on top of each other. I was walking one way, and I lightly bumped into a woman who was walking the other. I said “I’m sorry”, she turned around with a glare and yelled “What did you say?”. I repeated and she said “You bet you are”, and stormed out. I had no idea who I was talking to–but she looked slightly familiar. The lady behind the counter (who was still counting the pennies Shelley paid her bill with) thought I recognized her but motioned not to say anything until she left. Apparently pretty crazy. If you saw her on the street, you wouldn’t recognize her from her former work. A real shame. If this is all from the earthquake, maybe it’s PTSD and could be treatable. But I can imagine, if she’s anything like what I experienced, she probably keeps people at a far distance. A real talent in her prime.
