Lindsay Lohan Don't Need No Diamonds, Would Have Played Elizabeth Taylor For FREE!

| Filed under: Lindsay LohanFilm FlickersElizabeth TaylorBusiness Blitz


We guess Lindsay Lohan really REALLY identifies with the iconic Elizabeth Taylor, so much so that she would have reportedly taken the Liz and Dick role pro-bono!

Apparently, producers didn't even want Lilo involved — a decision Executive Producer Larry Thompson seems to be regretting! — but girl used her skill of persuasion to secure the part, and even offered to do it fo' free.

Linds recently expressed:

"I didn't get the project at first. I started calling and harassing agents… because I felt people were hesitant [to cast me], which I understood. I actually said, 'I'll just do it for free'. My agent was like, 'No, no, no, don't say that'."

Well WE are thrilled that the people behind Liz and Dick settled on Lindsay! We can't imagine any other starlet who would create SO much hype over a Lifetime film!

Annnnnd we just can't wait to see Lindz as a belligerent, troubled mess smashing liquor bottles against the wall… hey, it's all part of Liz Taylor's epic story!

We wonder if the red head drew from real life experience?!

    biggest and worst mistake ever made by this network.

    It really is pathetic how much you're promoting this, how much are they paying you? Every single person who has seen the finished product has said how horrible it is and that she isn't believable at all. She looks like a hot mess in every single overly touched up photo I've seen from it.

    played the role for free? well, this coke-bloated, "no. i-had-not-heard-i-had-a-half-sister-till-just-today", probably put this movie into the negative. with trashing the vintage trailer (putting a cigarette out on a portrait of liz, in that trailer…C'MON!). who the f u c k does that? oh yeah, and the grifting of the wardrobe. the crashed porsche. all the "fatigue" issues during production. this bag of std dirt cost this film big-time. and in the end, no one is going to watch.

    i cant believe abc agreed to PR demands of questions they could not ask her. SHAME ON ABC!

    Re: ickynicky – Took the words right out of my mouth. It's a major sellout move for Perez, very disappointing. He claims he wants Lindsay to get better but he promotes her like she's Gaga in 2009. This is the most unhealthy part of Lindsay's delusions, she thinks she's up there with Elizabeth. Elizabeth worked, honey, Elizabeth worked and worked and worked and got accolades in spite of substance abuse. Tabloids didn't solely make her a star. I seriously hope nothing happens to Lindsay but Perez is such a public enabler. This isn't a blog any more, zero perspective, all ads.

    It's such an insult to the legacy of Elizabeth Taylor, a real actress, beauty, and legend.

    Heh heh I just read a scathing review and whoever he was said it's going to be a drinking game night. By the end of the movie we will all be as wasted as Lolo that we WILL think she deserves an Oscar!!!
