Lindsay Lohan

I'm Sitting Down

with Barbara Walters

EXCLUSIVE

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."

Liz did co-star with a porn "actor" in a Kickstart-funded trash movie that went straight to Netflix, right?

I guess it would be too much to ask for her to shut up, go away and leave us in peace.

I wonder if this is really even true, or is this the Lohan's way of putting pressure on Barbara to do this? They put this (that Barbara is going to interview Lindsay) out there months ago, and it hasn't happened yet. I know Dina is 'friends' with Barbara, so this may be her way to put pressure on Barbara to do an interview.

"(Are We) ROLLIN WITH THE LOHANS" a new reality show thats a mixture of The Brady Bunch, Hoarders, Intervention,and Cops. Starring Lindsay as Marcia because-duh-eveything is always about Marsha, Lindsay, Marsha!!! Costarring Ali as Jan and Cody as Peter because everyone ignores them anyway. And cameo appearances by Dr. Phil as Sam the butcher who will give counseling sessions disguised as dialogue. The upshot of all this would be every Lohan would be gainfully employed and able to pay their bills without resorting to prostitution or other nefarious behaviors. Who's with me?

Guess they are trying to grab what ever ratings they may get.


Seems they are expecting people to tune in just to see Lohan lie through her teeth as always.


Other reports have it as a no holds barred interview tmz per Lohan (the source) is just pretty much about liz and dick.


Don't forget Lohan self-hyped herself with SNL that she was her words "fair game". Of course she lied through her teeth with that. Her lawyers had to approved all her skits. So much for "fair game" So when she bombed so badly she had the balls to blame the writers. iI was there fault.

Elizabeth Taylor was supported by Third World Sugar Daddies and Tweeted-For-$$, right?

Bawbwa will just ask soft, easy questions to make this loser look like a victim so people will feel sorry for her.

Lifetime must be desperate to try and make her likable.

What's Lohan going to do have her lawyers there to ok the questions? Or if Walters asks the 'tough questions' which everone already knows the answers to, is Lohan going to run off the set in fake tears and call Walters a disgusting bully?


This interview will not do a thing for Lohan just re-concreate that Lohan is washed up and done. A pathological lier and a total joke.

Honesty is free. She doesn't even have to steal it. Why is it so impossible for her to even attempt to be truthful?

@grandma...I don't think so. You can't make Lohan likable. Her Q score is so far in the tiolet like her career. I think they are doing whatever they can to try and recoup their loses. Which is ratings.


People just don't like her at all. Everybody knows the crap she pulled on Playboy, SNL, Lifetime, then the same with Glee, and then with Scary movie 5.


Bottom line is she won't be hired or asked back from any of these people she burned.

Lohan won't be so smug when she runs out of money.

@grandma...so true. Lohan is a very jealous, vindictive mean, nasty drunk and druggie. There is absolutly nothing to like. She keeps prooving over and over why that is.

So what she lies through her teeth in every interview. I hope Barbara doesnt let her get away with it.
