Acclaimed 70s and 80s actress Shelley Duvall is making her first film appearance in two decades with a cameo appearance in the movie "The Forrest Hills."
"It was a lot of fun and I'm excited to be back," Duvall told The Hollywood Reporter.
The film, written and directed by Scott Goldberg, stars Chico Mendez who plays a character full of issues who viewers are left guessing if he is a werewolf.
Duvall, who is 73, lives in Texas where she says she began in the industry in the early 1970s.
She says she left Los Angeles and Hollywood in the 1990s.

"My mother didn’t like him, either. A lot of people ... said, 'You shouldn’t have done that, Shelley.'"
