Lindsay Lohan as Elizabeth Taylor: First Look!

by at . Comments

Lindsay Lohan famously posed as Elizabeth Taylor in Interview magazine in 2006. Now she's all dressed up and ready to take on the role of a lifetime ... on Lifetime.

TMZ, which obtained the first of photo of LiLo in full wardrobe, reveals that she's already gotten her hair and cut and dyed to look just like Taylor's classic 'do.

The photo below is all Lindsay - no wig - and the resemblance is uncanny:

In addition to physical similarities, sources say LiLo's troubled history, and ability to match Taylor's vulnerability and beauty, helped win her the role in the Lifetime film.

Shooting on the movie, called Liz & Dick and chronicling her turbulent marriage, starts this week with Grant Bowler from True Blood co-starring as Richard Burton.

According to the producer, Larry Thompson, there'll be many a steamy scene between the couple, whose 18-year age difference mirrors that of Liz and Dick.

This has got to be a made-for-tv movie.

She doesn't look a thing like Liz, but I like her vintage 1950s Hollywood glamour look. She is almost passable as an actress in this picture after being 'cleaned up' for the photo shot.

I don't understand why anyone would hire Lilo for a major role like this, but then she is desperate enough to do what ever takes, including plastic surgery to try and fool people that yes she looks like Liz. Sorry you failed nad quite frankly I dont believe she has the talent to play such an iconic personality.

Uncanny? Are you kidding me?? Darkening everything does not make Lohan look the least bit like Taylor. My first thought was what "Kate" mentioned - that she looks more like she's remaking "Mommie Dearest." The hair is wrong, the lips wrong, Lindsey's face is a totally different shape than Elizabeth's. And fitting Taylor's epic life into a Lifetime movie? Lohan once knew how to act, but judging from her recent efforts, she's forgotten how. This movie smells like all kinds of bad...

Sorry, I don't recall Liz Taylor having freckles all over her body.

There was not 18 years age difference between Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton - it was 7. She looks nothing like Taylor, never will. With her mental instability having her hair chopped & dyed instead of wearing a wig will just cause her to go off the deep end once the movie wraps and the critics and public pans it.

Lohan looks NOTHING like Elizabeth Taylor, and never will. She looks more like Lindsay Lohan trying to look like Joan Crawford... and failing.
