Style Inspiration: Elizabeth Taylor

Elizabeth Taylor has long been on our style inspiration radar, but her memory is more alive than ever now what with that trainwreck Lindsay Lohan depicting her in a très highbrow Lifetime film. The horror! Elizabeth (who actually loathed being called Liz) was, unlike Lindsay, shambolic in the best way possible, the hottest mess that ever lived. She was a genetic mutant born with double rows of eyelashes, a violet-eyed lush and lover who was famous for her roles, her romances, and her prevailing kindness. Let’s not forget her fashion influence: she helped to bring Valentino and Halston into demand, and when she passed away last year, her jewelry collection was rumored to be worth well over $150 million. They just don’t make movie stars like Elizabeth anymore. Keep reading »

I’m just going to put it out there: Lindsay Lohan is no Elizabeth Taylor, and I, among others, find myself vaguely and inexplicably offended by Lifetime’s decision to cast her as such. It pains me to see anyone fanning the flames of the formerly great young actress’s delusions of grandeur, and being tapped to play such an icon is certain to balloon her already bloated ego. To be honest, though, what’s a cheesy Lifetime movie in the grand scheme of things, and really, I wouldn’t be surprised if it never even makes it to TV — Lindsay is notoriously shifty, with a penchant for lateness and unacceptable on-set behavior. She’s also played the part before, in a way, in a 2006 cover and editorial for Interview magazine shot by Karl Lagerfeld. That was a considerable amount of time ago, before the disastrous yellowing teeth and gratuitous face-altering, but if the photos serve as any evidence, Lohan is decidedly unfit for the role: she’s too angsty, too smoldering, too dark to suit the pensive, wide-eyed, almost-innocence that was Liz. Check out another photo after the jump, and tell me — are you buying Lindsay’s impression? Would you even be interested in seeing the Lifetime flick? Keep reading »

Lindsay Lohan Wins Elizabeth Taylor Role For Lifetime TV Movie

Lindsay Lohan is trying to get back on the road to success. She has already landed a hosting gig for “Saturday Night Live” and now has finally won the part of Elizabeth Taylor in a Lifetime movie about the legendary actress’ relationship with actor Richard Burton.

A source told “Access Hollywood” that Lohan will get to play Taylor only if she can continue to follow the law. Another source confirmed the news to Earsucker, also saying that, as long as Lohan can follow the requirements of her probation, she can play the part. Read more…

Face-Off: Lindsay Lohan & Megan Fox Fight To Play Elizabeth Taylor

Oh, I cringe. I’m sure you’ve already heard about the upcoming Lifetime made-for-TV movie called “Liz and Dick,” chronicling the trials and tribulations of Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton’s on-again off-again marriage and life together. Lindsay Lohan was the first actress revealed to be in talks for the role last week, directly from the mouth of the film’s executive producer Larry Thompson. Rumor has it Lindsay would die for the role, and who wouldn’t? Now it’s looking like Lohan, who hasn’t had an acting role since she appeared in 2010′s “Machete,” is going to be facing some pretty tight competition in the form of one Megan Fox. I’ll be keeping my fingers crossed that neither of these actresses scores the part when the contract is signed as early as next week. For the love of Liz! [Celeb Dirty Laundry]

Elizabeth Taylor And Richard Burton’s Love Story To Become A Movie

Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton had one of the most tumultuous celebrity romances of all time. I mean, not so many couples get divorced twice—you know? Elizabeth and Richard first met in 1962 while she played everyone’s favorite lady pharaoh and he took on the role of Marc Antony in “Cleopatra.” They were both married to other people at the time, but their intense chemistry was too much to resist and they began an affair. Two years later, they married. But things weren’t happily ever, as seems pretty obvious when you see them in “Who’s Afraid of Virgina Woolf?”—it’s like their intense love/hate of each other seemed to ooze off-screen. In 1974, they divorced, only to remarry 16 months later. A year after that, they were dunzo for real.

Elizabeth and Richard’s story was captured in the book Furious Love. And now it has been optioned by Paramount Pictures. Even better, Martin Scorcese is set to direct the pic. Keep reading »

Angelina Jolie Says Her Cleopatra Won’t Be A Beauty Or Sex Symbol. Huh?

“[Cleopatra] has been very misunderstood. I thought it was all about the glamour, but then I read about her and she was a very strong mother, she spoke five languages and she was a leader. My performance will never be as lovely as Elizabeth’s. We are trying to get into a different truth about her as a pharaoh in history and not as a sex symbol, because she really wasn’t. Even this idea of her having many lovers—it was possible that it was only two. She is very interesting, but she wasn’t a great beauty.”

Angelina Jolie talks about Cleopatra, the role Elizabeth Taylor made famous and that Angelina will be taking a stab at in an upcoming movie to be directed by “The Social Network”‘s David Fincher. In the flick, Angelina claims the famous Pharaoh’s romances will be toned down and that her diplomacy and intellect will be played up. But I dunno—by casting Angie, isn’t it guaranteed the role will be sexy? [Huffington Post] Keep reading »

Nude Photo Of Elizabeth Taylor, Age 24, Surfaces

A nude photo of Elizabeth Taylor at age 24 has been released by a “private collector.” Yes, even Liz Taylor had a naked pic! Elizabeth reportedly had her friend Roddy McDowall take the photograph — in which she’s crouched naked on a shaggy carpet — as an engagement gift for her third husband Michael Todd. After Hubby #3 died, a heartbroken Liz reportedly gave the naked pic to her assistant/makeup artist, Penny Taylor. Somehow it found its way to “private collector” (of what, nude pics?) Jim Shaudis, who released the photo after Liz died on March 23. While it’s not exactly classy to bust out nude pics, I guess it’s somewhat more acceptable that the collector waited until her death. And let’s be honest: doesn’t girlfriend look damn fine? [Daily Mail UK] Keep reading »
