Last night, Lindsay Lohan was on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno to promote the premiere of Liz & Dick which airs this coming Sunday, November 25. Lohan was just on The Today Show last week and did a brief skit on Jimmy Fallon before that.
As you probably already know, that fact that Lohan canceled on doing an interview with Barbara Walters and then scheduled in Jay Leno didn’t make Barbara very happy. Jay Leno wasted no time and asked about this whole situation at the beginning of the interview. Lohan explained that it wasn’t the right timing and that when she’s ready to sit down for that type of interview, Barbara, who she said she is a big fan of, will be the first person she calls.
Later in the interview, they talked about all of the crazy tabloid rumors, as well as one story that is true and that is that she just found out while on The Today Show that her father (Michael Lohan) did have another child and that Lindsay has a half-sister. Lindsay said about the situation that if she could offer the girl any advice, that is, “Good luck with my dad.” Check out some of the clips from the interview below.
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.
The new official featurette for the upcoming movie Lifetime movie Liz & Dick has been revealed and is certainly building up the anticipation for Lindsay Lohan‘s performance. The video says, “Her First Starring Role In 5 Years” and “Lindsay Is Back.”
The featurette shows clips from the movie, as well as an interview with Lindsay Lohan on set about her character and how she relates to Elizabeth Taylor. My favorite part is when she says that she loves diamonds as well, when we all know that because she was accused of stealing a necklace a while back. LOL. She also talks about living life in the public eye and the affect that has on a person. Grant Bowler, who plays Ricard Burton, is also interviewed in the video and says, “Lindsay is excellent to work with. She’s pretty much Elizabeth Taylor… reincarnated.”
The film debuts on Lifetime this coming November. Check out the promo video with Lindsay Lohan below.
It’s the movie television event of the year. We’ve seen still images of Lindsay Lohan dressed up as Elizabeth Taylor which surprisingly were half decent. She manages to embody the screen legend and not embarrass herself. That said, pictures are one thing and video is another. Lifetime recently released the first trailer of Liz & Dick and it’s very telling. Is the network disguising Lohan’s potential trainwreck performance by using a series of quick edits to hide her acting?
If you add up all the words uttered from the Mean Girls mouth, it probably wouldn’t add up to too much. It’s just a series of images of the 25-year-old actress smashing things, smoking, drinking and in a bubble bath with a guy. Sounds like a regular Tuesday afternoon for Lilo ;) It’s a role Lohan has been “preparing” for the past several years. With a voiceover, “They drink, they fight, they fornicate,” Lifetime is certainly trying to make the film as salacious as possible. Check out the first ever trailer below.
Lifetime has revealed the official poster for the upcoming film, Liz & Dick starring Lindsay Lohan as Elizabeth Taylor. The poster has Lohan as Taylor on the left hand side, with the words, “Controversial, Love Affair, Diamonds, Provocative, Scandal, Tabloid, Front Page, Child Star, Beautiful, Leading Lady, Sexy, and Paparazzi” fill up the right. As you probably noticed, pretty much all of those words can be applied to Lindsay Lohan’s life so it’s actually quite brilliant in my opinion.
When Lohan was first cast in the film, she said, “I have always admired and had enormous respect for Elizabeth Taylor. She was not only an incredible actress but an amazing woman as well. I am very honored to have been asked to play this role.” In the photo, Lohan wears bright red lipstick and is draped in diamonds. The poster can be seen below.
Now for the latest Lindsay drama. Last night, she was involved in an incident that TMZ is reporting got her arrested last night. Find out what exactly happened below.
You’ve probably seen the photoshopped pics of Lindsay Lohan as Elizabeth Taylor or paparazzi pics snapped of the actress while filming on set. At last, we finally have the first official pics from the Taylor biopic, Liz and Dick. Lifetime released a trio of pics showing Lohan’s transformation into the late actress. Let the judging begin.
In one of the promo stills, Lindsay is pictured with her co-star Grant Bowler playing the role of Richard Burton. It captures Linds in a yellow dress with flowers in her hair, depicting Liz’s first wedding to Burton in 1964. They later divorced in 1974, but remarried in 1975, only to divorce again a year later in 1976. In another photo, LiLo is dressed as Cleopatra, one of Taylor’s iconic roles. Lohan dons heavy dark makeup while wearing a cropped wig and gold dress.
When the 26-year-old was cast as the movie legend, floods of comments hit the internet voicing their disgust that the Mean Girls actress was miscast. Now that we have official images, I’m sure naysayers will say she looks horrible, while fans will proclaim Lohan has captured Taylor’s essence. Check out the other pics below and judge for yourself.
Lindsay Lohan has finally found dick. Nope, not that. Get your mind out of the gutter. Lifetime just cast Lohan’s love interest in its Elizabeth Taylor biopic, “Liz & Dick“. Playing the other half of the titular couple is Grant Bowler. It’s about time they cast the male lead. The film is scheduled to begin filming in less than two weeks.
You might recognize Bowler from his roles in “Ugly Betty” and “True Blood” where he played Wilhelmina Slater’s love interest Connor Owens and werewolf Cooter respectively. In “Liz & Dick”, Grant will play Welsh actor Richard Burton who was Taylor’s on-and-off again lover. The two married twice, once from 1964-74 and from 1975-76. “Liz & Dick” will chronicle the epic love affair of the two Hollywood legends. Producer Larry Thompson revealed Lohan and Bowler are visually a “perfect match” and raved about their chemistry. Check out what else he had to say about his two leading actors.
Yesterday in a press release, it became official that Lindsay Lohan would be playing a young Elizabeth Taylor in the upcoming Lifetime biopic, ‘Liz & Dick‘. Of course given Lohan’s less than favorable real life drama that has played out in the media over the last several years, some are skeptical that she is up for the job or even capable of pulling it off.
One of these people is Rosie O’Donnell. Perhaps bitter that her show was canceled and people like Lohan are getting new opportunities, O’Donnell was on ‘Today‘ with Matt Lauer, Donny Deutsch, and Star Jones and felt very strongly that Lindsay Lohan was “not capable” of this role. “She’s had a lot of trouble doing every single movie, including ‘SNL.’ She was out and not in rehearsal. I think she’s not in a place to work.” She continued, “I feel sorry for her. I think she needs a lot of time away… I don’t think she’s right for the role, and I don’t think she’s capable at this point to portray that character.”
