It’s beginning to sound like Lindsay Lohan still doesn’t realize she’s in a Lifetime movie which is a big step down from those big budget Disney movies she used to be in. She’s under the assumption she’s a big star and is making ridiculous demands about who should be cast opposite her in the role of Richard Burton in the Elizabeth Taylor biopic.
Currently, the role of Burton has come down to three virtual unknowns in Matthew Settle, Sean Maguire and Craig Robert Young. Seems like none of them are good enough for Lindsay as she’s demanding to go to London to look for a Burton there. It’s a clever ruse to squeeze a free trip to the UK.
“Lindsay declared that none of the actors were the right fit and that she wanted to go to London to look for a possible Burton actor there,” a production insider tells RadarOnline.com. “Lindsay is being an absolute nightmare about who should play Burton. She believes Matthew Settle is too old to play the role, and she wants a major A-list star to be her co-star. However, her salary for the role took up a major portion of the budget, and the Burton gig will likely only pay $200k, max. The producers don’t need to get Lindsay’s approval of who will play Richard Burton, but they want to keep her happy.” Radar
Lindsay wan’ts an A-lister? She does realize “major A-list stars” are busy filming big studio movies and wouldn’t be caught dead shooting with Lindsay on Lifetime. The only way she’s going to get a major A-lister on set is if they got lost and wandered onto the wrong lot.
