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."

I hope Barbara realizes that she won't be in control of this interview. Lindsay will she won't give true answers, she will probably look off camera at someone if a touchy subject is brought up Then she will defend her mom, and hate her dad same thing as always Lindsay needs to look at her life, and she needs to do something about it, but her family keeps her paralyzed, which is sad, what other former starlets parents are in the news as much as the Lohans?

backfire    

Barbara has been doing interviews for sixty years. I prefer fresh new interviewer with a 2012 up-to-date point of view. Enough of the same tired questions.

Baba is becoming a has been. She used to interview only A-listers. Now she is down to the z-list.

I'd love if BW would show a clip of Blohan on The Today Show with Lauer where she says she's a 'homebody, doesn't enjoy going out anymore, its the same ole same ole' and let Blohan answer while a clip on a screen behind her proceeds to show headlines of her going out 6 out of 7 nights a week. I'd love to see her explain that . . .

In other words it's gonna be a joke of an interview. Barbara is a joke if she won't do a real interview and really dig into her about all the drugs, alcohol and arrests of both her and her parents instead of just asking her about that crap of a movie she never should have been in. Not that it matters, Lindsay couldn't tell the truth if her life depended on it.

Celebrities Suck    

the PR stunt is all about the dick and liz movie... I will not watch the Barbara Walter interview nor will I watch the lame dck and liz movie because Lindsey's is in the movie...

Who wants to watch her on the Barbara Walters show? What can she tell Barbara that she hasn't told everyone else which is LIES? She will not get ratings from me. She's only going to LIE. lol

It's gonna be another fluff, bullcrap interview just like any interview with Matt Laurer. Full of lies and nobody will care. BFD.

Odd the fascination people seem to have with a family that behaves like trailer trash?(e.g Lohans and Kardashians.)

This interview will go the way of her tmz live chat. BW will ask a question she don't like and she'll give an answer that will have NOTHING to do with the question. And so on and so forth.

The interview will focus on the parallels between Elizabeth Taylor and Lindsay Lohan's life...sounds like a promotional piece for the film. Not a serious interview. Just promotion. Anyone expecting more than that would be silly to do so. I don't know too much about Barbara or how heavy-hitting her interviews used to be (she's been doing this 60 years, I wasn't even born during a lot of her work) but I won't expect too much out of this. Not likely to even watch.
