Lindsay Lohan

I'm Sitting Down

with Barbara Walters

EXCLUSIVE

1014_lindsay_barbara_walters_tmz_getty
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."

Where's the story about South Beach banning the Kardashians from renting a home in their neighborhood - all over Radar Online. Wish we could ban them from living in the US!

Gee, every freaking post on TMZ says "Lindsay has been close to (insert name here) for years." GMAFB! If she is so damn close to all these power players, why can't she land an actual movie gig, other than some sad Lifetime or internet movie? Steven Spielberg doesn't even have the connections that Lindsay apparently does (well according to her PR peeps who lie like rugs).

Friend or not, Barbara is known for going too far. I really hope she doesn't hold back. Could be enough to pull this little girl out of her lil fantasy world.

Windsay? If you wewe a twee what kind of twee would you be?
.
Walters had her day a decade or two ago but she isn't quite the hard hitter these days. I would be surprised if this is little more than a snoozer.

i think it's a good idea for lindsay to do this, i hope she doesn't think that barbara will go easy on her because she won't, she will ask everything the public wants to know. i still laugh at the interview she did with paris hilton, she started out kind.....paris was shell shocked! and they are friends,guess this means michael will be hitting the media circut now...here we go!

When she says she trusts Barbara won't take it too far, does that mean she trusts Barbara will not ask her any questions about the reality of her miserable life? Just talk about fluff, and let all the lies just slide by?

It'll be curious to see which Barbara Walters shows up. She can be a tough interviewer if she wants to be but sometimes she just phones in puff pieces and never challenges any of the obvious crap the subject is spewing. And sometimes he even goes so far as to repeat and assert the obvious crap was real.

the first question should be about both of them going through menopause...and the Hotflashes.
then move the interview on to the pains of old age and "depends"

The woman is a proven liar on how many occasions? I find it laughable that she is wasting her time going on television. All the interview will be is lies, lies, lies,. You get my point. lol Lilo, seriously, just give up the PR b.s. and go help yourself. Stop blaming everyone but yourself. You put yourself in these stupid situations then something happens and you can't deal with the repercussions. The media isn't the problem. Your habits are the problem sweetie.

This is a non story.......According to the Eturds this interview happened months ago, long before running out on the CM bill, car wreck on SMF, denying driving said carwreck, denying the vodka filled water bottles... claims of being clean & sober ,causing drama on/off the set (L&D), damaging Ms. Taylor trailer, attempted B&E, fleeing to NYC, attempted hit & run, attacking another person for carrying a cell phone, before putting many peoples lives in harms way by pulling a fire alarm in a hotel, falsely accusing someone of assult, denying being a whore to the artist, causing drama on yet another set (SM5), before having a fight with mommy, denying said fight with mommy and denying the use of drugs & alcohol (yet again), before claiming daddy is dead to her....(you guessed it, AGAIN)
And the list goes on and on, on, on........
