Lindsay Lohan has just signed on to play Elizabeth Taylor in a Lifetime movie, much to the chagrin of Rosie O’Donnell. The actress is thrilled about the opportunity.
In fact, she’s felt a kinship with the late Hollywood legend before.
In 2006, at age 19, Lindsay posed as Taylor, who passed away in 2011, for Interview magazine in photos taken by Karl Lagerfeld – including a cover shot.
Take a look at the striking resemblance below …
The shots are powerful, with Lohan managing to capture much of Taylor’s vulnerability and beauty, traits that helped win her the role in the Lifetime film.
Of course, this was before Lindsay Lohan’s plastic surgery and/or hard-partying ways altered her appearance drastically. But that’s neither here nor there.
It has not been revealed who will star opposite Lohan as Richard Burton in Liz & Dick, but the 25-year-old actress is heavily insured and raring to go.
