Lohan trades Barbara Walters for Leno

'Liz & Dick' star wants only softball questions

Lindsay Lohan is not interested in any tough questions. After the troubled actress canceled an interview with Barbara Walters for the Nov. 16 episode of ABC's "20/20" -- at the last minute -- she booked an appearance on NBC's "Tonight Show with Jay Leno" set for Nov. 20.


Bing: More about 'Liz & Dick'


According to the New York Post, LiLo is contractually obligated to sit for one TV interview to promote "Liz & Dick," the upcoming Lifetime movie in which she stars as the young Elizabeth Taylor. And Lohan's newly hired publicity firm would rather she take it on the chin from a softballer like Leno, who last interviewed her in 2005. (Not that controversy doesn't always surround Lohan, but the latest is the allegation that she lied to police about a June car crash on the Pacific Coast Highway.)

Lohan had better not cancel on Leno, however. The last time she did -- following a drunk-driving arrest in 2007 -- Leno interviewed Rob Schneider dressed as Lohan, complete with an alcohol-monitoring bracelet strapped to his leg.

"Liz & Dick" airs Sunday, Nov. 25 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Lifetime.

There are cockroaches that have more value to the planet than this useless piece of human detritus........

Not sure how she keeps getting work, it's hard remembering the last time Lohan was relevant outside of court appearances and rehab stints.  

Does Hollywood really need her?  There are so many young actresses more talented than her (i.e. Emma Stone, Chloe Grace Moretz, Jennifer Lawrence, Dakota Fanning, Emily Blunt, Anna Kendrick)

She knows Barbara Walters would ask leading questions and Lohan is incapable of handling the truth. She really has a problem telling the truth and more than likely struck a deal with Leno that he wouldn't ask embarassing questions. She really needs to go back to jail and serve her time without some bleeding heart Judge butting in and giving her time off for whatever. It's gotten disgusting that not one day goes by and she is in the news.
