Where does Shelley Duvall live?

Duvall, 71, lives in Texas Hill Country in Central Texas.

She fled Hollywood in the 1990s, but it’s unclear as to what prompted the move.

Duvall is famous for having appeared in films like 3 Women, Popeye, Faerie Tale Theatre, The Shining, and The Adventures of Shirley Holmes.

According to a recent profile by The Hollywood Reporter, Duvall lives humbly. Residents of the area are said to be protective of the former Hollywood star.

In the profile, Duvall, who became private and reclusive after so many years in the spotlight, said that filming Stanley Kubrick’s cult classic The Shining alongside Jack Nicholson was very “difficult.”

“[Kubrick] doesn’t print anything until at least the 35th take. Thirty-five takes, running and crying and carrying a little boy, it gets hard,” she shared.

“And full performance from the first rehearsal. That’s difficult.”

Duvall recalled that she would “listen to sad songs” on her Walkman, or think about missing her family, in order to help her get in the headspace necessary to perform.

“But after a while, your body rebels. It says: ‘Stop doing this to me. I don’t want to cry every day.’ And sometimes just that thought alone would make me cry.”

Duvall continued, “To wake up on a Monday morning, so early, and realize that you had to cry all day because it was scheduled — I would just start crying. I’d be like, ‘Oh no, I can’t, I can’t.’ And yet I did it. I don’t know how I did it.”

Kubrick, who died in 1999, had been long-criticized for his treatment of the actress on the set of The Shining, with some claiming his demands were too harsh.

Is Shelley Duvall married?

Duvall is dating, but not married to Dan Gilroy, 76, a member of the early Madonna band The Breakfast Club.

The pair first met as co-stars filming the Disney movie Mother Goose Rock ‘n’ Rhyme.

She was formerly married to artist Bernard Sampson in 1970, although their marriage disintegrated as Duvall’s acting career accelerated, and the pair divorced in 1974.

What happened on Dr Phil?

Dr. Phil came under fire in 2016 for airing an interview with Duvall that “exploited her mental illness” for “lurid entertainment.”

In the interview, Duvall makes erratic claims.

She insisted her Popeye co-star Robin Williams, who died by suicide in 2014 after suffering from delusions, was still alive and “a shapeshifter.”

“The man who’s threatening me is the sheriff of Nottingham,” she continues, and “if I say I’m healthy, the first thing they will do is hurt me tonight.”

On the show, she was taken to a facility by Dr. Phil after she made the television star promise that he wouldn’t let doctors “murder her.”

“Everybody was appalled,” Kristina Keller, a waitress in Duvall’s community recalled to the Hollywood Reporter. “It just came across as craven and sensational.”

Many, including Stanley Kubrick’s daughter, spoke out against the episode for its “exploitative” nature and called for a boycott of Dr. Phil programming.

A spokesperson for the Dr. Phil show spoke on behalf of the episode and the backlash it faced.

“We view every Dr. Phil episode, including Miss Duvall and her struggle with mental illness, as an opportunity to share relatable, useful information and perspective with our audience,”

“We don’t attach the stigma associated with mental illness which many do. With no one else offering help, our goal was to document the struggle and bring amazing resources to change her trajectory as we have for so many over 19 years.”
