Lindsay Lohan Locks Liz Taylor Biopic
LiLo is set to star in a Lifetime original chronicling Liz and longtime love Richard Burton
Liz was 28 when she met Richard Burton and Lilo is 25. Not the huge age difference some of you are talking about!
I'm not sure I think Lilo looks like Liz but then I didn't think Faye Dunaway looked like Joan Crawford in the beginning either and now every time I think of Joan Crawford I see Faye Dunaway as she was in "Mommie Dearest"!
I think as a child star, Lilo was a wonderful and delightful performer. She is still barely more than a child but I haven't seen her in anything in quite some time either. As gifted as she is, I don't doubt if she can put behind her difficulties she can do the job. What I don't get is all the truly mean and nasty comments? Lilo has had a rough past for such a young person that was brought on by herself, in other words her misjudgments and problems have cause more trouble for her than anyone else. She has an alcoholic father who is a leach on her and a mother who also is trying to gain fame and money through her children. It doesn't surprise me that she's had difficulty in her young life with that kind of a beginning. Look at Drew Barrymore! She started out great too and then went through several years of behavior that only damaged herself. Now she is beloved! Who would guess that she could overcome her parents and also her own mistakes as a youth? Let's hope Lilo can do the same thing. I still watch her over and over again in Parent Trap and Mean Girls. The only problem I have with her looks is that she injected something in her lips which I don't think makes her look better and she has a tired look about her. Let's hope that someone having faith in her ability and giving her a paying job will bring back that refreshed look...oh that's right...this is Hollywood, they are just trying to take advantage of her too!
Lindsay Lohan has no more business to portray Liz Taylor than I do! Lindsay is talentless and looks like a potato with makeup put on it by a child.
I will not even consider watching this idiocy. I'm not sure what LIFETIME was (is that the correct sponsor) thinking, but they must be desperate. And YES! There are so many other actresses that could have done this role and acted it as it should be.
So sad. So bad. Momma should have hung you in the closet and I'm feelin' so HORRIFIED! amb
WERE THE ONES WHO SELECTED LOHAN ON DRUGS. SHE LOOKS OR IS NOTHING LIKE LIZ. SHE MAY LOOK LIKE HER WHEN SHE WAS IN HER 50'S. THERE ARE OTHER ACTRESSES WHO ARE MORE TALENTED AND REALLY DESERVE TO PLAY THIS ROLE. I WILL NOT WATCH IT AND I AM SURE MANY OTHERS WILL NOT EITHER,
Talk about being miscast. Elizabeth Taylor was in her 30's when she met and then married Richard Burton. Lohan is too young and nowhere near as beautiful as Elizabeth Taylor and she is not a good enough actress to pull off the part. This is one Lifetime movie I will not be watching.
