Lindsay Lohan will continue her chatty streak (following her appearance on TMZ Live this week) and will sit down for a one-on-one interview with the legendary Barbara Walters ... TMZ has learned.

Sources close to Lindsay tell TMZ she has been close to Walters for years and that Barbara reached out to her about doing an interview when it was announced she'd be playing Liz Taylor in the upcoming "Liz & Dick" biopic.

We're told LiLo has been hesitant about sit-down interviews because she fears being asked questions she's not prepared for. But our sources say Lindsay trusts Barbara not to take things too far.

According to our sources, Lindsay and Barbara will sit down sometime in the next few weeks. We're told the interview will focus on the parallels between the lives of Lindsay and Liz Taylor -- things like child stardom, a rough childhood, living life in the public, and also dealing with addiction.

Our sources say the plan is for the interview to air next month to coincide with the premiere of "Liz & Dick."

I don't think fans even care what Lindsay has to say, if it's going to be equating her life with Liz's (I mean real fans, not the stalker crazy ones that will watch ANYTHING with Lindsay in it).

She'll never tell the truth anyway, so why bother?

Lindsay Lohan To Sit Down With Barbara Walters For ‘No Holds Barred’ Interview

First Published: October 14, 2012 6:58 PM EDT Credit: Getty Premium

LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Caption Lindsay Lohan will soon join Barbara Walters for an exclusive, revealing interview, Access Hollywood has learned.

In the next few weeks, Barbara will sit down with the actress for an extensive, “no holds barred, no questions off-limits” interview, a source close to Lindsay told Access on Sunday.

The 26-year-old actress has chosen to speak with the iconic journalist because she “trusts Barbara.”

“[Lindsay] has a lot of respect and admiration for her, and knows the interview will be done accurately and fairly,” the source said.

Additionally, Barbara spent half a day with Lindsay on the set of her Lifetime TV movie, “Liz & Dick” this summer, where the actress gave Barbara a tour of the set, while ABC filmed behind-the-scenes footage and interviews with Grant Bowler (playing Richard Burton), producer Larry Thompson and the movie’s director.

Footage from Barbara’s “Liz & Dick” set visit – along with Lindsay’s new interview – will air as a one-hour primetime special.

Lindsay will be the only member of the Lohan family interviewed for the special.

Major mistake for both. Lindsay does not give good interviews, either what she takes to relax or her fried brain cells prevent intelligent conversation. Some people are quick-witted and charming in any interview, but she just isn't now. It will just reveal her deterioration. Plus she just lies her way through interviews, as proven by clear evidence and body language. If Liz and Dick is the disaster it looks like from stills- then her attempt to claim sisterhood with Taylor will backfire bigtime. Better to lay low and see if she can get through the rest of the year without an encounter with police at the very least.

I wouldn't put any hopes on Barara Walters asking tough questions, though. She's the female equivalent of Larry King. They should form a softball team.

IF, Liz and Dick was an ABC production, I could believe that there might be a softball interview done by them to help rehabilitate Lindsay's image.

But, it's not. It's a Lifetime production and there is NO WAY BW would waste her time with this unless she was going bring down the hammer for big ratings.

Lindsay should think twice about this.

The only interview I would watch is if Lohan is hooked up to a lie detector machine and asked questions by the guy who runs these tests on Howard Stern's show, Ed Torian. The questions would be stellar. The answers and carrying on by Lohan would too be stellar.

" Baba Wawa" should be a no show for Lindsay the way Lindsay bailed on her scheduled “Ellen DeGeneres Show”. And for standing up Matt Lauer back in 2011. That would be poetic justice.
