An actress who slipped off the radar after being one of the most familiar faces in Hollywood in the 1970s and 1980s is seeking help for what’s being described as mental illness.
Shelley Duvall, whose iconic role in “The Shining” in 1980 was part of a string of well-received performances that also included “Popeye,” “Brewster McCloud” and “Annie Hall,” has been out of the public eye since 2002. But she has booked an appearance on “Dr. Phil” for this Friday, Nov. 18, 2016, and advance glimpses of the interview portray a disturbing picture of the former movie star.
One revelation teased in the clip, which has since been pulled from circulation, is that Duvall believes her “Popeye” co-star, Robin Williams, is still alive. Duvall, 67, says she believes Williams is now a shape shifter, and she claims she has seen him. Williams committed suicide in 2014.
Duvall also suggests that she’s being threatened by the Sheriff of Nottingham.
