Lindsay Lohan has once again made the headlines. No! She hasn’t slammed into anything, missed another court date or was caught stealing.
This time it’s all about her ‘crash-and-burn’ attire for a private dinner in honor of the premiere of her latest movie, Liz & Dick, where she is (supposed) to be playing Elizabeth Taylor.
trashy shiny, bejewelled dress hugged her body, but it was the diamond-shaped cut-outs from breast to belly that really set the fashion waves on fire – they were brutal! With her flaming red hair, Botox lips and curvy body she looks more like Jessica Rabbit than anyone else.
Even though Liz & Dick is being called Lindsay’s “come-back” movie, she has failed to pull off any acting skills and the ratings are horrible. However, Saturday Night Live has taken up the satirical sword, wielding it directly at Lindsey – which is hysterical!
Is it possible she phoned-in her performance?
However, were the odds stacked against her from the beginning? Elizabeth is an icon and hiring someone to portray her is a tough enough lead to ask, much less from a woman who has trouble remembering her court dates or finding a door to a public building.
Lindsay states her take on her role as Liz by saying; “I relate to her on a lot of levels — living in the public eye, dealing with the stress of what other people say, whether it’s true or not. She adds; “I personally understand Liz, because you’re living your life for everyone to see, and people are growing with you.”
Not sure it’s so much growing with you as running away from you! Which, BTW, is what the producers should have done when they considered Lindsay for this role.

The 20/20 powerhouse was all set to interview the never reliable (except to get into trouble) Lindsay Lohan about her latest role as Elizabeth Taylor in the Lifetime biopic Liz & Dick, when the interview was canceled because Lindsay didn’t “feel up to it.” After Barbara had already flown out to the set of the movie!
So imagine Barbara’s surprise when she later read a newspaper announcing that Lindsay was interviewing with Jay Leno. “We were supposed to do the interview last week to air on 20/20 Nov. 16, I spent a lot of time doing a lot of homework, watching the movie. Then her longtime press agent resigned. That should’ve been a clue,” Barbara told her “The View” co-hosts on November 12th. “If her PR group had been forthright,” Walters continued, “I wouldn’t feel quite as disappointed as I do today. I think I could’ve had a more honest explanation.”
Honesty from Lindsay’s camp? Good luck with that.
Barbara even showed a clip of Lindsay talking about her “exhaustion” during the filming of the movie. Especially embarrassing because the film’s producers called 911 at one point when they couldn’t wake Lindsay; “I think I was just honestly tired. I needed a nap for 15 minutes, and there were seven paramedics in my room. Imagine how I felt. I’m fine,” Lindsay said at the time.
If you find yourself, for some odd reason, up to watching a Lindsay Lohan movie, you can check out Liz & Dick on Sunday, Nov. 25, at 9 p.m. on Lifetime.

TELL US- DO YOU THINK LINDSAY SHOULD HAVE DONE THE INTERVIEW?
In today’s Lindsay Lohan is still a hot mess news, a new report is stating she
has traded in one addiction for another is now smoking at an alarming rate!
According to Us Weekly, Lindsay, a former? cocaine user, who is currently filming her new Lifetime movie, Liz & Dick, is starting to feel very stressed out, and is smoking two packs of cigarettes a day on the set.
“Literally every time she finishes a scene she lights up another cigarette,” the source explains. “You can hear the crew saying, ‘That’s cut — get a cigarette for Lindsay.’ ”
“In between takes she would sit on the director’s chair puffing on her cigarettes,” the source adds. “Lindsay has been working hard, but without the nicotine she probably could not make it through as she appears stressed at times and they do seem to calm her down.”
TELL US – IS THERE ANY HOPE FOR LINDSAY?
