LiLo says wild past made her ready for Liz Taylor role

Washington, November 26 (ANI): Lindsay Lohan, who made her long-delayed comeback after years of personal drama and legal troubles in the Lifetime original movie 'Liz and Dick', has spoken out about her experience while playing Elizabeth Taylor.

The small-screen biopic, which is one of the most anticipated television events of the year, depicts Taylor's volatile relationship with Richard Burton, whom she married and divorced twice.

"Everything I've gone through made me ready to play Liz," Lohan told Us magazine.

The 26-year-old also said that her trials and tribulations have made her both a better person and a better actress.

Lohan even goes so far as to say that she displays more professionalism than the film icon she's portraying.

"Elizabeth was drunk on sets. I've never been drunk on set, ever," she said.

"I did my time and I respect the law," Lohan said.

The 'Freaky Friday' star does relate to the violet-eyed siren in other ways, though. Like Taylor, she's a former child star who became a tabloid favourite and not always for good reasons.

"Since I was a kid, I've loved being on camera. Don't misconstrue that: I didn't strive to have flashbulbs at dinner or people who don't know me calling TMZ. And 99 percent of the time, it's not true," she said.

"I feel bullied. I can't think of any actor who has been subjected to such extreme publicity who hasn't, like, committed suicide," she added. (ANI)
