Just like her eyes and mouth will occasionally disappear off her face on the red carpet, TVLine reports that model and actress Paz de la Huerta will soon be disappearing from HBO’s Boardwalk Empire. Despite her extremely convincing turn as Steve Buscemi‘s slightly unstable mistress Lucy Danziger, Paz reportedly did not get her contract renewed for the period drama’s third season. Good luck finding another actress who will commit to that much high-caliber nude acting, you guys, because she does not exist.
We’re not really that surprised by the news; if you watch the show (or don’t mind a spoiler!), you know that the end of season two featured Lucy walking out on her newborn child. We imagine it’s … sort of hard for a character to come back after that. Luckily, Paz has a number of upcoming film projects this year, including a role in Malin Akerman‘s Linda Lovelace movie, Inferno. Thank goodness. The idea of Paz’s lavender lips disappearing from the Golden Globes altogether chills us to the bones.
