Lindsay Lohan’s highly-anticipated interview with Barbara Walters on ABC’s 20/20 is off after the troubled star pulled the plug, according to reports.

The modern-day Elizabeth Taylor portrayer was expected to appear on Friday, November 16 to promote her upcoming Lifetime biopic Liz & Dick.

Walters had visited the set and interviewed the 26-year-old on location.

However, according to Deadline, Lohan’s PR team is “dissatisfied with the direction ABC wanted to take the interview” and reneged on her participation.


The oft-maligned actress faces criminal charges for lying to police about her car crash on the Pacific Coast Highway. She falsely claimed her assistant was driving.

This could trigger a probation violation – due to her conviction for that jewelry store heist – if a judge determines there is reason to believe she committed a crime.

While it wasn’t explicitly stated by her camp, this and her recent nuclear fight with Dina Lohan were likely a big part of her decision to flake on Babwah.

Liz & Dick makes its premiere Sunday, November 25 on Lifetime.
