lilo liz taylorHey, did you guys hear that? I'm pretty sure it was the sound of Liz Taylor rolling over in her grave. Again. I mean, I'm sure she flipped once already when she heard Lindsay Lohan would be portraying her in Lifetime's Liz & Dick. But now that LiLo is outright comparing her sorry self to the legendary screen icon? (And her co-star Grant Bowler says Lohan is "pretty much Elizabeth Taylor reincarnated.") There she rolls again!

Look, I'll say this much about the recently released behind-the-scenes clip promoting the upcoming biopic: Visually, Lindsay Lohan makes a decent Liz Taylor. But she's a beautiful girl -- there's never been any question about that. Still, Lohan's fame and vague resemblance don't give her the right to say she "personally understands Liz."

"I'm a huge Elizabeth Taylor fan," says Lohan. "And 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."

"I personally understand Liz, because you're living your life for everyone to see, and people are growing with you. You get to a point where you become numb to it. And you just live your life the way you feel you need to live it."

Sorry LiLo, not convinced. Following that logic, Honey Boo Boo could claim to understand Liz Taylor. Sure, Lindsay Lohan has done a few of the same things Liz Taylor did -- like get chased by paparazzi and stuff. But there are tons of things Lindsay Lohan has done that Liz Taylor NEVER did, such as:

1. Liz Taylor never needed to get new teeth.

2. Liz Taylor never cleaned toilets in a morgue.

3. Liz Taylor never had to STEAL jewelry.

4. Liz Taylor never crashed her Porsche into a tractor trailer.

5. Liz Taylor never crashed her Porsche into a pedestrian.

6. Liz Taylor never "hid" her party host's expensive watches from potential "burglars" while "hazy" on Ambien.

7. Liz Taylor never got caught in a bathroom doing blow with the same guy who called her a "firecrotch."

8. Liz Taylor never showed up in court with a "f*ck you" manicure.

9. Liz Taylor never got banned from the Chateau Marmont.

10. Liz Taylor never had to re-shoot a Playboy spread because Hugh Hefner thought the first attempt looked a bit too much like a messed-up, on her way to jail starlet's desperate attempt to pull her career out of the toilet.

Do you think Lindsay Lohan can 'relate' to Liz Taylor?
