It’s been nearly 15 years since the 67-year-old actress has starred in a film.
On a recent interview on “Dr. Phil”, Duvall revealed her struggle with mental illness.
Stanley Kubrick’s daughter, Vivian Kubrick, is now trying to raise money for Shelley Duvall to help her out and aid her future.
A GoFundMe page has been set up by Vivian, as she herself explains:
“All of the funds raised on this GoFundMe account are going to Shelley Duvall. Just to tell you more about why I started the fund. Lee Unkrich of Toy Story fame has been writing a book about the making of The Shining. In his efforts to get an interview with Shelley, he spoke first with her friends, they said she was financially hard up and unwell and Shelley declined to do the interview. Neither Lee nor myself, had any idea how severe Shelley’s state of health was until Lee texted me a link to the Dr. Phil trailer 2 nights ago. We were both horrified. That’s when I fired off my 2 Tweets to Dr. Phil.”
