Lindsay Lohan not seeing '20/20'

'Liz & Dick' star cancels Barbara Walters interview at the last minute

Lindsay Lohan is treating Barbara Walters like a judge in a drunk-driving case, refusing to make her scheduled appearance on Nov. 16's "20/20." The controversial actress canceled her interview at the last minute, according to Deadline, at the behest of her new publicity reps.

The interview was scheduled to promote the upcoming Lifetime movie, "Liz & Dick," in which Lohan -- in a touted "comeback movie role" -- portrays the young Elizabeth Taylor during her stormy relationship with Richard Burton (Grant Bowler).

However, the PR firm Rogers & Cowan balked, figuring that the interview would probably focus less on the movie and more on Lohan's troubled personal life -- especially, TMZ adds, allegations that she lied to police about a June car crash on the Pacific Coast Highway.

Lohan's previous publicist, Store Honig, quit earlier this month -- although the real question is how he lasted more than a year in the coronary-inducing job.

The move may have repercussions worse than facing Walters' interview question. As Deadline notes: "few in Hollywood pull out of Barbara Walters' interviews."

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

I for one, wish nothing but the best for Lindsay. She has been through hell & back, perhaps her own doing, but obvioulsy the media know absolutely NOTHING about drug & alcohol addiction. The media is like a pack of jackels, eating up each morsel if someones life. As for Babara Walters; if she suddenly got into trouble, she would experience the same fate!

I truly hope that young Ms. Lohan will survive the relentless negative media attacks and rebound in a big way.  She must be under tremendous pressure by having every move she makes and every word she speaks scrutinized to the point of absurdity.  Let her be and let her show the world the amazing talent that supersedes the personal BS that so many media pukes want to harm her with.

dont care about linday low-hoe or Barba WaWa really either, my concern is this-WTF  is happening to   lindsay FACE?? everythime I see a pic of her she looks mannequin like, and about 45 or 50.  WHO IS TELLING HER SHE NEEDS MORE FILLER? and cant she look in a mirror for craps sake and say "enough is enough"? She at least used to have THAT going for her-now she just looks like Marysols mom on real housewives of Miami!! Who let the dogs IN??

Why bother having her on? She looks like fried **** and she's wasting away her money, name and life. Find someone inspiring, intelligent and a positive role model that could contribute something worthwhile to society. Oh wait, this is tv...

Who really cares about Lindsay Lohan? For a change, let's focus on some positive news.

she may have done more of a service..  she knows her reputation..  that is what she is paid to be..  the rest is idiots that don't have a clue how many layers are on the onion. 
Nov 9, 2012 2:45PM
too bad we can't just "cancel" lohan...............
Nov 9, 2012 2:09PM
when is the idiotic media going to just ignore this stupid drugger/drunk and go on with life.. she isnt worth the ink it takes to write about her, and noone cares what her opinion is or what she has to say! ! ! ! !

Lohan and her "people" are even more delusional than I thought if they think there is ever going to be a better time - like when LiLo isn't in some type of legal trouble - for an interview with an inquisitive harpy like Walters, or anyone else for that matter.
Nov 9, 2012 2:00PM
I wish Lohan would just die in a drunk driving accident already, who cares about that no-talent crackhead lol. Its a disgrace that she was chosen to portray Elizabeth Taylor!

Why should she? So Walters can grill her for supporting Romney?

Screw that old handbag-she just wants ratings and would broadcast a funeral live if the person were famous enough.

Who cares what Babs thinks, I mean really. Her and Diane Sawyer should get a room in a retirement home together...let them bitch and whine to eachother all day

Nov 9, 2012 1:33PM
The less I see of this dysfunctional family the better......I personally would not spend a dime to see one of her so called films, not even if it was FREE!  Enough already....please just go away and stay away.

I never thought I'd be defending Lindsay for anything ... but I'm glad she stuck it to Barbara. Barbara would of tore Lindsay apart and we already know what Lindsay is and don't need to waste our precious time watching Barbara trying like hell to milk it out of her again.


P.S I feel the same about those that cancel or turn down Ma Ma Oprah too.
