Kim Kardashian Poses As Elizabeth Taylor In Instagram Photo

Oh, Kim. I guess at this point I should probably stop pitying the critically dim lighting in your headspace and start actively rallying against you instead, considering it is just that deer-in-the-paparazzi-flashbulbs lunacy that is to thank for the $40 million sitting in your bank account. Lo, when you go around posing yourself in a…

Here’s The Trailer For Yet Another Made For TV Movie About Liz Taylor & Richard Burton

It has been eight long months since Lindsay Lohan starred in “Liz & Dick,” as of yet the world’s most glorious made-for-TV-movie about the tumultuous love affair between Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor. Note, I said “as of yet.” Not to be outdone by Lifetime, the BBC is airing its own Liz and Dick vehicle, “Burto…

BBC4 is doing its own version of the epic Elizabeth Taylor/Richard Burton love story called “Burton & Taylor” and they’ve hired Helena Bonham Carter and Dominic West from “The Wire” to play the title roles.

Danielle Fishel Plays Lindsay Lohan Playing Elizabeth Taylor

Did you watch “Liz and Dick”? Then you know that the computer you’re reading this on has more acting chops than Lindsay Lohan. That didn’t stop Danielle Fishel — from “Boy Meets World” and the upcoming sequel (that no one really needed) “Girl Meets World” — from spoofing our favorite arrest magnet for “The Soup.”…

The 8 Best/Worst Moments From “Liz & Dick”

So, did everyone watch Lifetime’s sure-to-be-a-classic original movie “Liz & Dick,” starring Lindsay Lohan as Dame Elizabeth Taylor and Grant Bowler as Richard Burton, last night? I did. In fact, I watched it twice, it was that horrifically yet entertainingly bad. Where to begin? Lindsay Lohan’s performance was abominable. It was like she didn’t even try to…

11 Things You Didn’t Know About “Liz & Dick”

Tonight marks the beginning of a new holiday: “Liz & Dick” Day! Lindsay Lohan is making her debut as cultural icon Elizabeth Taylor in the highly anticipated, critically panned biopic “Liz & Dick.” Oh, it’s going to be so good.

Critics Says Lindsay Lohan Is Hilariously Bad In “Liz & Dick”

“Liz & Dick” premieres Sunday, but some critics are already having a LiLo-bashing party after watching the Elizabeth Taylor biopic, Fox News reports. “It’s just bad. Her voice—she sounds like herself, a smoker from Long Island, and there is no chemistry with her co-star, and she was clearly not prepared,” says one early viewer. Most reviews so far…

The “Liz & Dick” Trailer Is Here

The trailer for the biggest television event in Lifetime’s history is here. Infamous, scandalous, dangerous. They drink, they fight, they fornicate. Love affairs, diamonds, paparazzi. Lindsay Lohan and Grant Bowler as Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton. That pretty much sums up the “Liz & Dick” trailer. Is it almost November? [MTV]…

Not Bad: Lindsay Lohan As ’80s-Era Elizabeth Taylor

Though I initially gave the idea of Lindsay Lohan playing Elizabeth Taylor in Lifetime’s “Liz & Dick” the ol’ side-eye, I have to admit LiLo is totally rocking Liz’s mid-’80s fabulousness in this just-released shot. The styling is on point. Whether Lindsay can act the part remains to be seen. See a few more publicity stills after…

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…

Flashback: Lindsay Lohan’s 2006 Interview Cover As Elizabeth Taylor

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…

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…

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…
