Thirty-year-old, stick thin Practice actress Lara Flynn Boyle left the legendary 63-year-old Jack Nicholson for the (bit younger) hunky Bruce Willis, reported the New York Post.
Boyle, who has been dating Nicholson since May 1999, was reportedly seen getting frisky with Willis at this year’s Emmy Awards.
According to the Post, Boyle and Willis met clandestinely at HBO’s Emmy post-party at Spago in Los Angeles.
Apparently, Post spies heard a publicist whispering this phrase to the actress: “He’s ready for you now. He’s out there.”
Boyle, who was said to be snappish earlier from fielding questions about an absent Jack, perked up and headed out the back door for an alley rendezvous with the mega movie star.
The Post claims that their tête-à-tête was disrupted by an alert camera crew, which tried to film the two in action.
Reps for the concerned actors declined to comment to the Post about the item.
Boyle's reportedly moved her stuff out of Nicholson's Mulholland Drive house and is staying with TV co-star Dylan McDermott and his wife, Shiva.
US Weekly seconds the story of Boyle's split from Nicholson and adds that the rail-thin star was overheard post-Emmys saying, "I have to find a man, a good man."
Evidently, she's found him.
As for Bruce, he and wife Demi Moore separated amicably in 1998 but have not yet divorced. His subsequent companion, marketing exec Maria Bravo, is said to have been shown the door recently by the A-list star.
According to some tabloids, Maria was so heartbroken over the split, that she tried to commit suicide – Albawaba.com.
