We were taken aback when we stumbled upon this photo of Lindsay Lohan at an Oscars art event yesterday in Beverly Hills. It was just announced that she will star as Elizabeth Taylor in “Liz and Dick” for the Lifetime channel. Good for her, but could she look any LESS like Liz Taylor? The lips and platinum hair remind us more of Victoria Gotti than Liz…

    Get ready folks! Lindsay is all set to make her big comeback, and this movie is a minor stepping stone in her journey back to he top! I think she will do a fine job of playing the late, great Elizabeth.

    That’s if she makes it alive to the shoots.

    She photographs well but in person her skin is terribly gross for her age.

    She has the talent. If she can stay clean, she can do it. Hope she does.

    Yes she is very photogenic yes she can act. Question is, can you imagine her as La Liz? Sure. During Liz’ bloated years as wife of John Warner!

    Wow, maybe this is just a bad picture, but she looks like Liz at 50. Now Liz at 50 was good, but she was 50, not twenty something!

    Horrible casting. She doesn’t even remotely resemble Liz (or Marilyn either for that matter). I agree with the other posters about her skin and her aging. Her skin is simply dreadful, and I don’t mean becuz of freckles, which can be beautiful if the person takes care of their skin. Lindsays skin looks old, terrible texture and color, she has wrinkles (at 25!!!) and her face is already sagging. Liz Taylor had beautiful bones, skin, features, and charisma. Lindsay has none of that. This movie sounds like a joke, although I admit I never watch lifeline or whatever its called, anyway.

    What the hell has she done to her face?! She looks all bloated and puffy.

    She looks terrible. How could she think that this is a good look?

    Kitty…DITTO! My thoughts exactly! And I’d NEVER buy her as Liz in any way shape or form. They not only don’t LOOK alike, but their bodies are completely differently shaped, other than for both having big boobs, but hell, EVERY female practically, in Hollywood has them today, they aren’t hard to get, aand always look like shit, not gorgeous like Liz’s were! Liz was also high-waisted, short, and had va-va-voom hips. Take a good long look at a still from Cat On a Hot Tin Roof, with her in a white satin slip, and you’ll see Lindsay can’t hold a candle to Liz at her finest no matter HOW desperately she tries! She ain’t got ANY of Liz’s magic, just NONE! And Liz has some of the most porcelain looking skin, even into her elder years. LL will have to act the whole movie in a total body bag to cover all the flaws in looks and charactor. What I want to know is, who’s STUPID idea is this? Fire the casting director!

    I’m sorry, I think Lohan will be terrible as Liz. Liz had a real verbal acuity and wit, incredible vocal inflection, incredibly expressive voice and features (at her best, not counting her drunk or on pills appearance in Under Milk Wood if I am remembering the right play- to- bad- tv- production). And that’s not even counting her incredible looks, as @Reta has described.

    Now if they wanted someone to play a whiny Long Island brat who has aged before her time, Lindsay’s your girl.

    Haha, @Palermo, that was great.

    WTH did that girl do to her face? And her lips? This is not helping.

    She looks like someone who should be on the Real Housewives of OC. Lindsey go back to your red hair and layoff the fillers.

    When did her lips blow up? GAWD
    She will be in rehab long before the film is in the can.

    Could it be as a rauchy parody? CSI the whole face and body… too expensive. Her broken, grated voice dubbed, and you know she will have fits, cause mayhem and major delays.. get everyone around her fired or in trouble and she gets fired.. so the producers are prepared.. insurance payoff is viable bonus.. there is an excellent unknown or better replacement waiting in the wings to take over at less cost.. and make the bio a successful award winning made for TV movie..

    I thought this was a joke at first, but damn this is real. Horrible choice.

    She looks like Liz did toward the end of her life.

    Any doctor who would inject a substance into someone’s lips to make them look like Today’s Catch should be drawn and quartered.

    Giving Lilo the highly anticipated role of Screen Queen Elizabeth Taylor is in the category of getting the taco bell dog Gidget to portray Lassie, a poor choice in casting!!

  26. By Kitty

    Reta is right! She can’t begin to compare to Liz in any way.

  27. By CoCo

    I suspect that this is just a publicity stunt on behalf of the producers, just like the Gottis and Linda Lovelace – I don’t think they ever planned on following through with their stunt casting of Lindsay.

  28. By Reta

    CoCo, I don’t “pray” (being an Atheist) but hell, even I would PRAY you’re right on that one!

    And Denise, you’re 100% right! See new post of the horribly screwed up “DR” of MJ and crazy Janice Dickerson above. (And he calls her Janice Dickson at one point!)

    Lindsey’s hair reminds me of my old Barbie doll with the dynel wig.

    For a woman of 25 years, she has aged wayyyyy beyond her years.

    I love her. She looks great and i think that she is able to play Liz.
    Taylor got weight troubles too during her life. Please let give Lindsay a chance !
    I am not a hater.
    Some comments here have nothing to do with critic but hate.

    I wanna hug her and whisk her away to a cozy cabin far, far, far away from Hollywood and teach her Cognitive and Dialectical Behavorial therapies (lol). She’s become a victim of the industry and family woes but I’m really hoping she’ll become an advocate and survivor!

    Remember: You are the only person you can truly rely on. Stay strong and true to yourself Lindsay! I understand the need to party away bad feelings xxoo

    Love him or hate him, this guy is a loudmouth who doesn’t hesitate to tell it like he sees it- but there’s one thing he NEVER talks about: his prostate problem. Long story short: he LEAKS! He likes to project an image of macho virility, but under his custom made suits are custom made “diapers.” He’s VERY self-conscious and has absorbent but undetectable “panty liners” sewn into all his underwear, to avoid wet spots. Thanks to his arrogant behavior, he has more than a few enemies and he’s terrified his secret will be exposed and he’ll be forever ridiculed!
