Lindsay Lohan's Best Elizabeth Taylor Impression Is a Complete Illusion

Eye Roll 5

lindsay lohan as liz taylorOh no. The Lifetime made-for-TV flick starring Lindsay Lohan as the late, great Elizabeth Taylor is truly happening. Dear Lord. Make. It. Stop. The scariest part so far? Lifetime has released the first official promo pic for Liz & Dick, and it's actually really impressive. Yup, that's really LiLo on the right (with Grant Bowler of True Blood as Richard Burton aka Dick). Can you believe it?! I seriously did about seven double-takes when I first saw it, too. At first glance, it could definitely be Liz. Frightening.

But is it any real indication of what we have to look forward to? Will Lindsay truly pull off a believable Liz throughout the film?

The short answer: Helllllll no! In fact, judging from the totally un-retouched photo obtained by TMZ, it looks like it's bound to confirm our worst fears. How can they even pose the Q of whether or not her appearance is uncanny or nonexistent? Give me a break. It's embarrassingly nonexistent. She didn't even bother to dye her hair a dark, almost-black brown? It's still auburn in the TMZ pic! At worst, she looks like she's Lindsay Lohan dressed up as Donna Reed for Halloween. At best, she looks like she's about to play Betty Draper's annoying little sister on Mad Men. But Elizabeth Taylor? No way. 

On the other hand, the promo pic is awesome and definitely haunting. Because only it's the right angle, the right makeup, in black and white helps, and above all, it's obviously a PhotoShop masterpiece. Let's be real: LiLo probably hasn't had non-drug addled baby smooth skin like that since she starred in The Parent Trap reboot.

And all you need is a quick glimpse at other embarrassing, unauthorized sneak peek pics emerging now to know Liz & Dick is destined to be a completely cringe-worthy mess. But hey, at least that photo editor over at Lifetime gets an A for effort!

Do you think LiLo will be able to pull off an accurate portrayal of Liz Taylor? What do you think of the promo pic?

what a completely biased and prejudging post.  portraying a real person is more than just looking like them and there have been many actors who don't "look" like the real character they are playing, although i disagree that she doesn't look anything like liz taylor.  also, you certainly are not going to know whether a movie is going to be good or not based on a few or even a lot of picture.  movies are based on action, dialog, a person's mannerisms, chemistry between characters not merely  random pics, many of which are the actors just hanging around waiting to film a scene.

I hope she does well in this. If for no other reason than to silence all the people who doubt her.

How about instead of a hate filled post about how you think she will do, you wait for the movie to come and then you can judge?


Does CM really pay these people? If so, then please, give me a job.

I rather think she will be wearing wigs for the part and makeup artists can work wonders these days. Im more interested in her acting ability. Lindsay's adult acting prowess has never been really shown. She was a precocious child in parent Trap and still a teenager in Mean Girls. Though bewildered about all the attention Lindsay gets, Ill wait for the movie before I slate it. Maybe she can actually act. Time will tell.
