"Her decline is so sad and tragic," dished a Tinseltown source. "She was once a Hollywood bombshell with a body and beauty to die for, but now she looks bloated and frail and has trouble moving without assistance."

Meanwhile, one doctor — who has not worked on Cybill — estimated the 5-foot-8 Moonlighting drama star, who once dated the King of Rock and Roll Elvis Presley, is at risk for a host of medical troubles.

"She's definitely courting catastrophe," warned lifespan expert Dr. Gabe Mirkin.

The ex-bombshell is still working in Hollywood. In her latest role in How to Murder Your Husband: The Nancy Brophy Story, Cybill plays a crime author whose claim to fame is writing about women who fantasize about killing their own husbands.

Cybill signed onto the project because she said she could "relate" to her character.

“I need reasons to do a project. In this movie, my character’s father was an alcoholic. My own father was also an alcoholic," she said about the role. "I knew that world. I had experienced it. I do want to say that my father was always a wonderful man. He was a great dad to me. I don’t really want to complain.”

Reflexing on her several decades-long career in showbiz, Cybill told the Review Journal: “In many ways, I started at the top and have been working my way down ever since.”

But she's not afraid to age — as long as it's on her own terms.

“One of my favorite sayings is to flaunt what you’ve got left,” Cybill shared. “I approach each age thinking this is the best time for me as a woman. I believe that if you love yourself as you age, it’s easier to accept some of the changes. … I also think at middle age we really learn to enjoy life because you know yourself. I don’t think anyone has it all figured out until they’re at least in their 40s. Being older means you can truly avoid making the same old mistakes, plus you realize now that it’s not about you, but what you can give back. Life now becomes more of a spiritual journey.”

RadarOnline.com has reached out to Cybill's rep for comment.
