First Look: Lindsay Lohan Looks Just Like Liz Taylor if Liz Taylor Had Smoked More Crack Rock

By Dustin Rowles | Trade News | June 4, 2012 | Comments ()


It is absolutely uncanny, isn't it? Lindsay Lohan looks just like what you'd expect from an actress playing Liz Taylor in a LIFETIME MOVIE. That is to say, low-rent, store-brand, ribbon-cutting ceremony impersonator that you could rent out for $20 an event if you threw in a pack of smokes and a Dunkin Donut.

Grant Bowler, from "True Blood," will be playing Richard Burton in Liz and Dick, the event movie of the year for people who can't leave their houses for fear of losing their disability checks.


Source: TMZ, which should be obvious from the GIANT WATERMARK. Next time you want to mark your territory, just urinate on Lohan herself, TMZ.

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

  • TheOriginalMRod

    I've always thought Camilla Bell looks like Liz Taylor... sans the blue eyes.

    But come on... we are talking about Lifetime (television for women?... more like grandma). They would do anything to get ratings... and I am sure they will. In the over 70 crowd. 

  • Jezzer

    Just to put it in perspective, John Belushi played a more convincing Liz Taylor.

  • Adrien

    But her hairstyle is more Larry Fortensky.

  • John G.

    Lohan is gross

  • alwaysanswerb

    LiLo's casting makes perfect sense. When else in the history of ever has the mainstream public given this much of a shit about a Lifetime movie?

  • Harborwolf

    Certainly shows the amount of effort they're putting into the project. Their idea of making Lindsay into Elizabeth is to slap a green dress on her.

    On the other hand, when they get to Virginia Woolf, Lindsay will look nearly spot on without an ounce of makeup.

  • Four Eyes

    Every time I hear about this film I keep hoping it's just a fever dream. Dammit.

  • Pookie

    Give me a break with the Lindsay Lohan isn’t worthy to play Liz Taylor routine. Last time I checked Taylor was married eight times, which means when she wasn’t working on some movie she was home sucking cock. Add to the fact that she used to hang out with Michael Jackson and that dopey monkey bubbles, who the fuck knows what that scene was all about. Yes, Lahan has fucked up in her young life, but she’s got miles to go to catch up with Liz Taylor in the fucking up your life department.

  • Archie Leach

     Not sure about that.  Considering that Cokesey lohan looks to be in her mid-50s, I'd say Cokesey has caught up to Liz pretty fast.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    I will give this to Pookie - Liz & LiLo share a starry childhood with some hard living. La Liz was certainly scandal-prone in her day. She just took a little longer to get that lived-in look.

    Though since she was divorced all those times, Pookie, one could say the problem was that she *wasn't* home sucking cock.

  • Jmkellerman

    Looks more like Joan Crawford than Liz!!!

  • dizzylucy

    Butterfield 8 ball.

  • Joan Wants Cheetos

    Tag and release...

  • Joan Wants Cheetos

    Tag and release....

  • I'm not so sure Lilo doesn't nail it. Not too long after Cat, La Liz began showing definite signs of dissolution.

  • Candee

    Oh god. How terrible this will be....

    bah ha ha haha.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    That green dress has been on my list of "clothes I would have made for me if I had millions of dollars" for many a year. My mom looks like Liz Taylor (both the young and old versions, though with less jewelry and caftans).

    And as far as RDJr comparisons go...I'm sort of tired of him and his shtick. ... Watching the Avengers, I felt like he was actively trying to make it all about him.

    I'll show myself out. 

  • Anne Lucchesi

    I somehow thought that was the point of the character. He does want it to be all about him, doesn't he?

  • Archie Leach

    I'll try to make this concise and pithy: it's Lifetime so who gives a fuck.


  • Susmith6

    JOAN CRAWFORD, not Liz Taylor ...

  • Purplejebus

    If she makes it out of this tailspin, she will be this generation's Drew Barrymore.

  • fpkillkill

    TheOriginalMRod, that is exactly who I saw too. Joan Crawford. All Lohan has to do is pencil those eyebrows a bit more.

  • L.O.V.E.

    Looks like the Maiming of the Shrew.

  • hapl0

    This movie is nothing but a PR campaign for her future. You see producers/directors/co-stars?

    Contrary to popular belief, Lindsay can finish a movie.

  • Jezzer

    "Contrary to popular belief, Lindsay can finish a movie."

    Like a happy ending in a massage?  Or do you mean finish it in the ratings?

  • hapl0

    Whoa, whoa, whoa. No one is talking about ratings here. Baby steps now. It's not like RDJ went from stepping out of jail to putting on the suit the next day, right? 

  • InternetMagpie

     But she hasn't even finished it yet! I remain dubious.

  • hapl0

    Oops, looks like I finished early then.

  • I think even TMZ is above peeing on Lohan at this point.

  • $27019454

    With very few exceptions, I was never a big Liz Taylor fan, but this incarnation is a smarmy heinous-wretched mess.

  • Fredo

    Actually, no she doesn't.  She doesn't at all.

    Liz at that age = Top 10 beauties of all time.  Lindsay even at her non-cracky best can't compare.  

  • Oh, this reminds me of Jennifer Love Hewitt as Audrey Hepburn.

    No. . . So. Very. NO.  Not even on your best day.

  • Adrien

    No, but I remember Mira Sorvino as Marilyn Monroe.

  • klingonfree


  • Slash

    How could a Lifetime movie go wrong? 

    Answer: In every conceivable way. 

    Every time I think of how many women watch Lifetime and those godawful Housewives shows on Bravo and the Kardashians, it makes me a little ashamed to have a vagina. 

  • TheOriginalMRod

    She looks more like Joan Crawford. 

  •  She looks exactly like Joan Crawford. (This is not a compliment to Joan Crawford.)

  • Tinkerville

    Please have TK do a real time review of this.. 

  • Bodhi

     This . A thousand times this

  • thatsjesstastic!

    This is a still from the backyard porn version of "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf ", right?

  • e jerry powell

    No, no, no, a thousand times, NO!

  • TheEmpress

    Is anyone else excited to see what a terrible mess this is going to be?  \

  • Jezzer

    So the guy who played "Cooter" in True Blood is now playing "Dick" in a Lifetime movie.  I'm detecting a theme.

  • e jerry powell

     Don't knock it.  Grant Bowler always makes me think of genitals.  I was so hoping Vanessa Williams would join the Ugly Betty/True Blood crossover, but I think perhaps she was a bit too grand for the Mississippi werewolves somehow.
