Lindsay Lohan Was A Pain In The A**, Says Liz & Dick Producer

| Filed under: TV NewsLindsay LohanBarbara WaltersFilm Flickers

Does this really come as a surprise to anyone??

We've seen the way Lindsay Lohan does business and it's really not all that professional. Besides stiffing hefty hotel bills and letting down Barbara Walters of all people, it really isn't a far stretch to say that the girl has quite a reputation.

Turns out, things weren't so different on the set of her Lifetime movie Liz & Dick.

Executive Producer Larry Thompson called working with her a "challenge" and that's putting it nicely. Between all the various lawsuits and run-ins with the law, it didn't take the faint of heart to get her cleared by insurance, causing a huge pain for production.

Thompson explains:

"We had serious challenges to deal with due to her probation and her history therefore we had to make a deal where there were pages and pages of 'what if' clauses. There never was a 'what if she can act' clause. It was about, 'What if there is a car accident? What if there is a violation of her probation [and she's] incarcerated?' Those 'what ifs' were plenty. She might be the most insured actress who ever walked on a soundstage. We tried to insure ourselves against things that could and, in fact, did happen."

It really sounds like it's more trouble than it's worth. If there's any hope for a LiLo comeback, she better hope that people will be tuning in just to watch the circus.

And you know, we'll be sitting there with a leftover turkey leg watching with bated breath!

    It makes me just sick to my stomach to see her pretending to be Elizabeth Taylor. I know that Elizabeth wasn't pure and innocent but she wasn't trash and that is exactly what LL is. You can put lipstick on a pig but is't still a pig. I will definetly not be giving this movie not even a minute of my time. Trash.

    Lol he never said she was a pain in the a**. You always seem so bitter and jealous, Perez. It makes it hard to read your website.

    No sympathy to anyone who hires Lilo. They get what they deserve. There are a dozen other actresses who can bring publicity without the pain. Why do people bother? And anniebannie, I agree. It's an insult to Liz Taylor that Lindsey is playing her.

    In fact "did happen"…those are the key words. It makes me sick that someone can insure and make money off this train wreck.

    Raed a review of this mess yesterday. Bad, bad, bad. They can hype it to the moon but it will still be awful. Of course a certain number of pople will feel compelled to watch it but i won't be one of them.

    I love how these idiots hire and then complain and complain later on. I mean, really? You know what you're getting into when you hire Lindsay Lohan, so quit complaining. And I agree with most posters, seeing her as Liz is insulting to the memory of Liz. Liz might have made a lot of mistakes in her life, but the woman was all class. Lindsay is trash.

    That's what you get to being the biggest moron in the world for hiring Lindsay Lohan to play one of the greatest icon in the world. Lets me honest you only hired her for all the free press.

    What the fuck did they expect? She's a wash up. It's a disgrace she is portraying one of the greatest actresses ever. She looks fried up, her high pitch squealy 50 yr old smokers voice is annoying. I'm just ugh. I don't plan on watching it cause I'm sick of her and all her second chances. She needs to go away for about 10-15 years and fix herself.

    Fortunately I do not get Lifetime, have a very basic DirecTV package.
