LiLo offered to play Liz Taylor for free

16 November 2012

Washington, Nov 16 (ANI): Lindsay Lohan was so desperate to land her dream role in the TV biopic of late screen legend Dame Elizabeth Taylor, titled Liz 'n' Dick,' that she offered to forgo her salary cheque.

The 26-year-old actress is preparing to make a career comeback after a tumultuous couple of years, during which she battled legal woes, rehab stints and short spells in jail.

"I didn't get the project at first. I started calling and harassing agents... because I felt people were hesitant (to cast me), which I understood," Contactmusic quoted her as saying at the Los Angeles screening of the film.

"I actually said, 'I'll just do it for free'. My agent was like, 'No, no, no, don't say that'," she added. (ANI)
