Lindsay Lohan's Got The Elizabeth Taylor Look
Lifetime has released the first photo from its upcoming television movie, Liz and Dick, which stars Lindsay Lohan, 25, as the late and great Elizabeth Taylor and True Blood's Grant Bowler as Taylor's on-again, off-again husband, Richard Burton. Liz & Dick will focus on the often-tumultuous relationship between Burton and Taylor, who were once Hollywood's golden couple.
The pic was shot last Tuesday at Lifetime studios, where creatives decided to go with a black-and-white "classic" look, a Lifetime source told E! Online. According to Liz & Dick producer Larry Thompson, the chemistry between Lohan and Bowler on set, which is palpable in the photo, "exploded" from the first moment they met each other. "It was just Fourth of July firecrackers going off in the room. We knew from the chemistry that Liz and Dick live again."
For her part, Lohan intends to give her all in portraying classic Hollywood icon Taylor — something about which fans have been skeptical since Lohan's highly publicized drug problems and the perceived train wreck of her Playboy Marilyn Monroe shoot. "I have always admired and had enormous respect for Elizabeth Taylor," Lohan said in a statement before filming began. "She was not only an incredible actress but an amazing woman as well. I am very honored to have been asked to play this role."
