Lindsay Lohan Can't Handle Liz & Dick Critics! Doubting Her Own Acting Skillz?!

| Filed under: TV NewsLindsay LohanFilm FlickersMichael LohanElizabeth Taylor


Oh LiLo, no!

You were just too exhausted to bring your Oscar-worthy acting skillz to set, right?! We're sure there's more talent rattling around inside of you somewhere!

After harsher than harsh critiques of her "comeback" role as Elizabeth Taylor in Lifetime's Liz & Dick, it seems Lindsay Lohan is not handling the negativity too well, and is even beginning to doubt her own acting ability.

One insider close to Lilo reveals:

"Lindsay is devastated by the response to the film. She has got used to all the negative press around her personal life but this is the first time she has experienced it about her work. No matter how bad things were going for her personally, everyone would always agree that she was a great actress."

Another source explains:

"Lindsay has already read her own press, she knew the script wasn't strong but thought she would bring the role of Elizabeth to life. This is particularly heartbreaking as her acting was the only thing in her life that she knew was real. Now she is doubting that, too."

Riiiigghht. Cause the reviews of I Know Who Killed Me were so stellar…


But, thank goodness Linds has people like daddy Michael Lohan for support!

Mikey recently expressed:

"Due to the content, I had to step away from a lot of the scenes, but regardless of what some of these so-called critics, who don't have an ounce of talent in their bones say, Lindsay proved that she is an amazing actress. This was a different role for her at a difficult time of her life. She still has what it takes to be the Lindsay Lohan that is one of Hollywood’s top actresses."

We totally agree, Mike!

We believe in you Linds, and hey, so you couldn't quite capture Liz Taylor… we're sure the next role you play in The Canyons across from porn star James Deen is a project far better suited to your set of skillz!

    I”m not sure she was EVER a great actress. Maybe the drugs and drinking have just burned her brain so much that she cant function anymore. Maybe she believed all the enablers around her who told her she was the next coming of Liz Taylor. Maybe it's time for her to leave Hollywood, find a nice isolated island somewhere, and disappear from view for a decade or so.

  2. 2

    the first time she got universally panned? what about I know who killed me? and I can't even remember some of the other trash she produced. she's just not actress materia, never has been, never will be. maybe now she'll shut up and go away. forever. as in the 27 club. everytime I see her I get the urge to scrape off the bottom of my shoe.

    Taking a quote from her own movies, Lindsay is "too dumb to function"

    Her vocal acting/timing is so terrible. Her smoker's voice makes it worse.

    Where r these great actress comments coming from. She has not done anything for years.

    yea, i couldnt even finish watching it, i was getting bored.

    She is not a great actress and needs a lot of work. Aside from that if you're able to deal with negative press about your life, you should be able to roll with the punches when it comes to your mediocre acting skills.

    She's so out of touch. She was NEVER a great actress. She was a child actor and like most child actors, she's under the idiotic assumption that she's actually talented. Now she sees…

  8. 8

    It's a Lifetime movie. And I think she did a pretty good job. I didn't go into it watching her closely and picking at everything, that's what the critics are paid for. I was back and forth because Sunday has a lot on tv. But she wasn't that bad.

  9. 9

    The thing is, no one has ever thought the was a great actress. She was a mediocre child actress who got lucky. She wasn't even good in Mean Girls, which people think is her best movie. What happened to her not reading her negative reviews? She just recently said that she doesn't read negative reviews about herself.

  10. 10

    This is the first time she's experienced bad reviews? Whaaaat?! In I Know Who Killed Me, she got critically skewered, from that time on she has gotten nothing but bad reviews. Secondly, she was delusional to think she could pull of this role. She never took on difficult roles, which is why she did well with them. Thirdly, if she can't take the fire she needs to get out of the kitchen. If she can't handle bad reviews, she needs to stop acting.

  11. 11

    You are a fucking asshole. This poor girl has had too much hurt in her life and it has all been scrutinized under a magnifying glass. And here you are adding to it with the comment about I know who killed me. Honestly perez shut the fuck up let's see your credentials. You got lucky but all you do is gossip and it's disgusting. You're a pig.

    A difficult time in her life?? LMFAO. She is 26 years old. She is in for a big surprise if she thinks 26 is a difficult time in life. She has never done any real acting before. Only young adult stuff. She should have put the crack pipe away. Her voice is shot. Lindsay get rid of the fake hair. Go be a nice lesbian somewhere. Give us all a break.

    Re: hgtvtyrr

    Bull crap. She could have gone away. Lindsay chose to stay in the rags. And, her life has been far EASIER than 99% of the rest of us.

  14. 14

    Anyone whoever said she had acting talent should raise their standards. That is why I don't understand why critics are so hard on her, when did she ever give a decent performance except in Bobby? I can play along w/ most stories but this is BS Linds lives in a world that Dina is sober and a decent mom.

    I watched liz and dick last night and I thought it was good! Critics are too negative and rarely accurate. People are way too hard on lindsay. I'm sick of all the negativity. People need to get a life. Lindsay did awesome in liz and dick. She looked just like liz and her acting was great. I know a lot of people who liked her as liz, but it's always the negative people who seem to talk.

  16. 16

    As for Anna Nicole's beautiful 6 year old….yeah get her in front the camera as soon and as much as possible….amazing.

  17. 17

    She should have done a regular film where she could have developed her own character, not try to mimic a recently deceased iconic actress.

    Re: Ojsakila – umm I think you're out of today touch, lindsay lohan was the it girl in her prime. She played twins when she was a kid. She has a lot of talent and everyone wanted her to be the star role in every movie she made. Parent trap, freaky Friday, mean girls, just my luck, Georgia rule….all awesome movies!!! So I think people need to remember she does have talent and stop being such hateful ignorant people, get a life!!!!!

  19. 19

    There is no way that she was up for this role. She is no where near the actor she needed to be.

    Re: boston61 – addiction is not easy. Stop being so hateful people. We all have problems. Just because someone sins differently than you doesn't mean you're better.

    Re: boston61 – lmfao as off to you, so hateful and judgmental, just makes you look like an idiot. Addiction is not easy. It's a difficult for sure!!!! Even on drugs, lindsay lohan has more talent in her pinky than any of you Internet trash bags have in their whole body lol laugh at the haters lindsay, because you're on tv and they're watching it lol :) .

    You're a fucking moron prez just like Lindsay. I just wish someone would punch you in the face more.

  23. Rob says – reply to this


    The movie was horrible! Point blank! I watched it for all of 40 minutes and was bored out of my mind. All I saw was Lindsey spewing words, as if she was doing a cold read. My 92 year old grandma, who eats, breaths and lives Lifetime movies, was also bored- which is a first. Lilo should take these responses as maybe it's time to do something else, or get some acting classes. (Maybe another trip to rehab????)

  24. 24

    She really was bad as Elizabeth Taylor, however she proved she still has the acting bug in her. I actually went in with very low expectations and she actually did a pretty stellar job as an actress…..just not particularly as Elizabeth Taylor.

    Normally I would never "stick up" for a celeb. However watching L & D now and I'm enjoying it. I agree with trinigirl123.

    I haven't seen it as I live in Italy but I thought she was a good actress. I still like mean girls and I miss the days where she did mean girls, freaky Friday etc. Your all forgetting she was in the parent trap which come on don't even deny it was good! Because it was! I think the only problem is she is going through so much right now it worries me. Look what happen to Anna Nicole when she was going through her rough time. Im worried one day we will wake up and see a news report of her ODing on drugs. I hope she gets her life together and can continue doing movies. I haven't seen the movie like I said but I doubt its THAT BAD. She has become the Hollywood trainwreck so of course everyone is set up to look for flaws in the movie. Now ask yourself if Lindsey in her prime had done this right off the bat I bet she would of got better reviews. I think she needs to go for some type of movie less iconic and something everyone is sure to love to get her back on track.

    Re: Love24 – is this Alaina? New part time job to supplement your modeling income.

    I wouldn't call Lindsay a great actress and she's never gonna win an oscar! I think that Lifetime thought they could capitlize on all the crap that came into Lindsay's life, but they failed miserably.

  30. 30

    It's a Lifetime movie people, get over it! I wasn't expecting a great Oscar performance but I was entertained and I don't think she did that bad at all. Some people just like to throw stones. Grant Bowler the guy that played Richard Burton did a great job. If it weren't for him the movie would've surely tanked. Too bad the attention is on Lindsay instead of Grant.

  31. 31

    The useless bitch has never done anything of quality or anything that could claim she is a great actress. This whole Lindsay Lohan thing is bullshit. She was a kid who did a couple of movies that were ok and that's it. She has done nothing that is good as an 'actress' so how does anyone know she is a great actress? She has yet to prove it…Hello! are you people stupid or something?

  32. @v@ says – reply to this


    Meh. Some roles work, some not so much. Even Liz Taylor was mercilessly panned over some of her movies. Maybe it's 90% sweat equity (showing up) and 10% talent. Everyone knows Lindsay has been pretty good in a few movies.

    Re: bumpper – Lmao only if you knew who this really was

    When you have a mediocre actress embodying another mediocre actress, one can't expect too much.

    I thought the movie was great and lindsay did a great job! Don't listen to the haters they would put down there own mother.

  37. 37

    Oh yes such great actresa because she played so many different roles in her life… She's a very pretty girl some watcher found and put her in comedy movies for f*cks sake. Shes never been an actress.

  38. Christy says – reply to this


    I always thought Lindsay was very talented. She's quite funny in my opinion and she absolutely shines in comedies. I think she does best when she doesn't take herself too seriously.

  39. 39

    Re: Love24 – keep trying to convince yourself. but i always thought that lindsay had talent but with everything, you need to practice. most people take their career seriously. regardless of what it is, you work at it and you continue educate yourself and strive to be better. She may have been good when she was young and with strong direction which you would expect with a child movie. But with adult movies, a director isn't expected to teach someone to act to the degree that lindsay probably relied on when she was younger. Additionally, lindsay is over exposed as a celebrity and she cannot disappear into a role. regardless of her acting ability, it wouldn't matter, she has trashed her public perception and she cannot take on strong characters.

    As a kid, she had freckles , could mug for the camera on cue and say a few lines - that was her talent. As an adult, she has not improved her skills at all. She spends more time in bars and court than acting classes. I hope she has other skills or a big bank account because she won't be making money as an actress much longer.

    Don't worry Lindsay, there is always porn.

  42. Ben Frawley says – reply to this


    NOOOOOO!!!! No more bad press!!!!! There should be tons of praise and great commments about this movie…Lindsy should be encouraged to make more LMN movies so we can have hours of cheasy movies like this one…it was fantastically bad! Lohan has become the new Tori Spelling for LMN and i can't wait for the next feature!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    NO MORE BAD PRESS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    The acting was very good– "it was just an awkwardly, odd narrative script…"
    Body language, inflection, and voice for both were very good– and the character chemistry very good.
    The leading man was perfect for playing Burton!

    I am always pleased with Lindsay Lohan's work, she is a damn good actress.
    When she wants to be.
    And she could be a great actress– the groundwork is there…
    I look for believability in a script, and the actors sold the film– I am disappointed in the critics though– this is a diamond in the rough, as in a rough, awkward script!

    Acting Skills???…..give me one example of her acting skills? This woman is not an actress, she's a media joke created by all her negative antics. A prized role like Liz Taylor without question should have gone to a veteran, skilled actress.

    Until anyone has ever tried to act they should not be so harsh on Lindsay !
    Lindsay did a Great job showing emotion . I thought the movie was a good movie for Lifetime.
    Let face it no one can ever imitate Liz Taylor . I think Lindsay did a good job !
    Bravo Lindsay !
