Lindsay Lohan taps her inner Elizabeth Taylor

Lindsay Lohan glows while talking about her return to
the screen as Elizabeth Taylor in the TV movie Liz & Dick.
And it’s easy to see why the once-promising-actress
would connect with the role of the glamorous former child star whose scandalous
behavior became tabloid fodder. But the critics aren’t glowing. The Hollywood Reporter calls the film “spectacularly
bad – half train wreck, half SNL skit.”  And the San Francisco Chronicle writes, “It’s so terrible,
you’ll need to ice your face when it’s over to ease the pain of wincing for two
hours.”  Sadly, it’s true. But fortunately when we sat down to talk about her role, her
enthusiasm had not yet been dampened by vicious reviews.

“Well, I’ve always been a massive fan of Elizabeth Taylor,
she says. “ I think that she wasn’t afraid to be a woman and I think she was
very strong willed and I feel I’ve gone through enough that I can say the same
for myself. I really related to her in a lot of different aspects because of
her position in the public eye and the media obsession with her
, and her ups and downs in relationships and life – and
that’s aside from her love for diamonds!”

“I can only imagine to have the kind of love that she and
Richard Burton had. It’s heartbreaking. Love is scary and I’m yet to find that
one person. But it wasn’t easy for them – the word ‘paparazzi’ was invented
over their affair, when they were still married to other people. So it was
still hard what she went through, which shows in one scene where she says ‘They
used to only take the glamorous shots.’ 
I’ve gone through that exactly, though for different reasons, but I
know what it feels like when they’re just looking for some scandalous snap shot
to sell to the tabloids.
It gets
really lonely sometimes, being in the spotlight.
It might have been a little easier then to some extent, without the
internet and cell phones but the media scrutiny is a really scary thing. But
I’m not making excuses.
I’ve put myself in
positions, I was being hounded a lot and I didn’t know what to do with it and I
didn’t want to listen to anyone. I was very stubborn and I think Elizabeth was
like that in both her love lives as well on the set when she was working. When
you reach a certain point of fame you learn that people are willing to do
whatever you ask them to do and a lot of people are afraid to say no
. I think that that has a lot to do with living in
excess, certainly in my own experience, 
and I think that if you don’t have the right people around you then
you’re never going to learn when to stop. You know, things happen to people and
I think that if I were to say that I’m misunderstood then that’s making an
excuse. I think that people are misunderstood in general. No-one’s perfect, and
I learned from my mistakes. But I needed to go through that. I needed to say do
I really want to do this? But I love acting and it’s unfortunate that people
began to know me as a celebrity rather than actress. I can only hope
to gain that respect back through my work.”
