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. Like, “Surf Nazis Must Die” good, like, “Pootie Tang” good, like “Gigli” good – that’s how good it is going to be. If you’re counting down the seconds to watch “Liz & Dick” with a leftover drum stick in hand, as you lament how many calories you’ve consumed in a short few days, then you must read our roundup of 11 things you didn’t know about “Liz & Dick.” Sure, you knew it would be awful, but did you know how much much real, actual work went into making this poop-diamond? Now you do! Read more…
Lindsay Lohan is working some serious Priscilla Presley realness here, at the premiere for her new, and highly lambasted, Lifetime movie “Liz and Dick.” There’s a lot not to like here — the shiny champagne silk, the unflattering cut, the bizarre red crystal detailing. She might look drag queenish here, but we’re at least glad she’s returned to her red hair roots.
“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 agree Lohan was not the best choice, but here are the best lines from the cattiest review, by Tim Goodman in the Hollywood Reporter:
- “It should come as no great surprise that Lifetime’s ”Liz & Dick” movie starring Lindsay Lohan is spectacularly bad. … Lohan is woeful as Taylor from start to finish. But, whatever you do, don’t miss ”Liz & Dick.” It’s an instant classic of unintentional hilarity.” Read more…
”[P]aparazzi can’t get a picture of me doing anything interesting. I’m untouchable. Here’s James Deen peeing in public, making out with a girl in a bar, drunk and puking. Yeah, I’m a porn star. What do you expect?”
– James Deen talks to Interview about his non-pornography role in “The Canyons” with Lindsay Lohan. When asked about paparazzi hounding the set, he admits they “sometimes haven’t been respectful” to Lindsay. Glad to hear he’s not being hounded by paparazzi … but doesn’t Lindsay do all those things, too? [Interview Magazine] [Photo: Interview]
“[Lindsay Lohan] absolutely lied. We were having an argument, it escalated. She just wanted to hurt me at that moment. You know, mothers [and] daughters, we fight. I hate cocaine. I don’t do cocaine. I’m so proud of her for telling the truth because it destroyed me. I mean, I cried for weeks. It just hurt me so bad and she knew how horrible that was, and she came clean and told the truth that she lied. I’m very proud of her for that, which is very difficult to have to do. There’s so much more to the story than the public sees, and it takes its toll on my children and myself, and we’re just trying to move forward.”
– Dina Lohan assured “Entertainment Tonight” that she hates cocaine and that when daughter Lindsay called her father in a panic last month, yelling that Dina was crazy because she’d just done coke, it was untrue. Michael Lohan called 911 and released audio of Lindsay’s call to him to TMZ. But thankfully, Lindsay has come clean about this big misunderstanding. Hurrah! Dina’s good name is restored!

I don’t watch “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon” that often because I try to go to bed at a reasonable time so that I don’t hit the snooze button for an hour every morning. As a result, I’m unfamiliar with Jimmy’s regular segment, “Let Us Play With Your Look,” in which, I guess, an audience member is given a makeover while Jimmy sings off key. Last night’s segment featured a special guest — Lindsay Lohan! It was really weird. Also, this might be the best Lindsay’s looked in awhile, which is odd because she’s wearing a strange asymmetrical, Vidal Sassoon-esque platinum wig. Anyway, clip above!
