In the next couple weeks, Lindsay Lohan will sit down with Barbara Walters in a one on one interview. Barbara apparently reached out to her to do an interview with her when it had been announced that she would be playing Elizabeth Taylor in the upcoming biopic, Liz & Dick.

Lindsay has allegedly stayed away from these one one one interviews for the most part because she has feared the interviewer asking her questions she’s not prepared to answer. She trusts that Barbara won’t take things too far and that the interview is to talk more about the parallels between her life and the life of Elizabeth Taylor. There are many similarities in terms of child stardom, a rough upbringing, life in the spotlight, and of course addiction.

I must say, as much as I know she has made some bad choices in the past, I have felt sorry for Lindsay lately with all of the drama her parents continue to cause. What was that interview with her mother Dina on Dr. Phil? And apparently Dina was fighting with Lindsay over a limo a few weeks ago? Dina is also trying to get Lindsay to get a permanent restraining order against her father, Michael Lohan. What a mess.

In the midst of all this, at lease she’s working now and seems to be headed in the right direction. I look forward to checking out the interview. It is likely to air around the time that Liz & Dick premieres.
