Lindsay Lohan

I'm Sitting Down

with Barbara Walters

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 wouldn't waste a minute watching this fiasco, I hate the sound of LL's voice and who wants to hear more lies? This hag sounds like she has smoked too much and I am talking about trashy LL.

"she has been close to Walters for years"

ROFL!!! I'm sure they party together at the Marmont all the time.

"Barbara reached out to her about doing an interview"

Barbara reached out with a wad of ABC cash.

What an insult to Liz, who actually had talent.

Actions speak louder than words, Lindsay! It doesn't matter who you sit down and talk to because your actions show that your words are all lies!! Your best bet is to stay out of the limelight for awhile, but we all know that will never happen!!

And she is voting for Mitt Romney. She could get better drug assistance from Mr. Obama's plan to suspend arrest and treat the drug sick addict.

I can't believe Barbara Walters is wasting time on this idiot. I hope everyone will boycott this interview so the press will finally get the message to quite inundating us with criminals masquerading as "actors."

used to like Walters years back - before The View
now she seems more tabloid-like, going for ratings and sensatonal/salacious stories, trying to stay relevant to today's youth I guess
if I were a world leader today I would never sit down with her for an interview
that part of her career ended a while ago
she's lost her journalistic credibility if you ask me
Sure politicians, Obama etc. come on her show- but it's not because of her- it's a way for them to pretend that they relate to the little people- to show their likeability because they know it isn't Meet the Press
they go on comedy late night shows not at the drop of a dime to show their relateability
can you picture Eisenhower on Letterman etc.
wouldn't happen
somehow the office of the president over the past 50 years has lost some of it's dignity- a lot with Clinton-
say what you will about Bush JR, but he respected the oval office enough to wear a suit everyday
now sadly the vote for the President is more like a popluarity contest
the likes of FDR and Eisenhower wouldn't be elected today I'll bet....sad isn't it?

So she can put her spin on things. Sounds like an Obama interview to me.

I'd rather watch honey-boo-boo or get a chainsaw enema than watch this ..Babs isn't exactly the barracuda she once was ...in fact she's a bit of a star f*cker now...so Im sure it'll be Babs smooching whatever is left of Linds' a@@ while Linds sprouts out whatever self serving BS she usualy does
