Lindsay Lohan May Play Elizabeth Taylor

Lindsay Lohan has quit trying to make that Marilyn Monroe thing work and has now moved on to another screen legend, Elizabeth Taylor. Lohan was previously tied to Deep Throat but after months of practice stifling her gag reflex, that part never materialized. Now she’s set to play the lead in Lifetime’s original movie Elizabeth & Richard: A Love Story.

Lohan has been compared to Taylor. In addition to their physical resemblance, a 2004 Slate story lists a host of other similarities: “Both had domineering stage mothers, little semblance of a real childhood, fame from a young age, substance abuse issues, public emotional outpourings, and copious amounts of tabloid drama. The key difference, though, is that Elizabeth Taylor had a true record of achievement before she became the most notorious movie star in America.” Deadline

Ouch. All that prep work for Deep Throat gone to waste. At least Lindsay can finally remove the sign pointing to her mouth that reads “dick goes here.” That girl really immerses herself in the subject matter.

True, just like a Ferrari has seats and so does a Pinto. With that I can see the connection.
