Ick. Can’t stand her. She symbolizing everything that’s nasty about Hollywood. Sorry to see she’s hosting SNL next week. I won’t be watching.

…This girl’s “career” now is nothing but rumors. Rumored this rumored that with nothing happening. LOL

# 3

EW no! Megan Fox would be a thousand times better.

# 4

Stay out of trouble Lindsay and good luck.

# 6

i think this girl is fantastic

all you haters are the worst

# 7

It will be a shame! She’s vulgar and has no talent. It could happens only if she sells her body for the director. So, has a good chance.

# 8

Good luck Lindsay. I hope this movie can be her comeback!

If you made mistakes in your life you would hate to have people always putting you down everytime you try to get back n track. All of you people out there who have a negative opinion.. Remember how the universe works. You will probably find yourself in the same position with people like YOU putting you down. Cut her some slack. Drew Barrymore was a screwup growing up. She got her **** together and is doing very well.. Be encouraging.

I don’t care one way or another about this girl but she should not even be mentioned in the same paragraph as Liz Taylor. And I agree with the second poster, her career building path seems to be spinning rumors or what parts she will play, but never gets interestingly enough.

so sick of this loser…

Haters gonna hate, of course. Her personal life is a failure, but nobody can deny that she has talent.

I don’t think she has enough talent to pull off the role of Liz Taylor. Not sure what the casting director was thinking.

I think that both Elizabeth Taylor and Lindsay Lohan have that gutsey “I don’t care what you think about me” attitude, therefore Lindsay will be just fine playing Elizabeth.

Lindsay has neither the acting chops nor the slightest resemblance to Taylor. There are plenty of young and up-and-coming actresses who deserve the opportunity a lot more than she does, and who would probably do a better job. At least they stipulated she handle her sh!t to stay in the movie. And it’s Lifetime, nothing Oscar-worthy, so I really don’t care either way.

@Gonestealth: the problem is that we first started hearing those nasty rumours we believed in her, we believed she could get better and we just don’t believe anymore and I personally can not support a person that should be in jail right now.

@Marina: She was great as a kid because she was precocious like all the young actresses today (Clhoe, Hailee, Elle, etc) once they grow up, they struggle because they have no real talent to back it up.’ll make her roll in her grave!

What in insult to Elizabeth Taylor!

I think Megan Fox would be better choice, but who knows… Maybe Lindsay will finally give her best and do this movie the right way… I really hope she will, and if she fails, well it’s just a tv movie… Lindsay this and snl are your last shots! Don’t spoil them!

omg nooo! I’d rather have Megan Fox playing the role. But I’d prefer someone unknown cause then I could just watch and enjoy the tv movie.. instead of being annoyed by Lindsay Lohan.. Although, the tv movie is getting more noticed because of Lindsay.. maybe that’s why she was cast.

uuhhh Liz was an icon a true star and 4 Lindsay to play her nooo

@Gonestealth: Please, she keeps making the same mistakes. She’s more known for her personal life than her ‘talent’. She should have no place on tv. When you’re in such a competitive work environment there are no 100th chances. Cause that’s what she’s had so far.

good for her. hope it works out. she is/was a good actress.

NO NO NO she is just so wrong to play Elizabeth Taylor.

She is a red head with red head complection.

Elizabeth Taylor was a dark hair person.

So not right for the part.
