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."

Lindsay,
Do not do the interview with Barbera. I like her, however she is so unkind to young women. AKA Paris Hilton, whom was a (friend of hers) for NO reason. Do an interview with Oprah.

Good luck with that. She will be coked out of her mind and will fail to properly answer any question asked.

I wish it was Diane Sawyer who was doing this interview instead of too old & too soft on the questions Barbara Walters. Nothing new will be revealed here, just more lies and blame.

Lohan has done interviews, lots of them and she makes sure the questions are softballs and even then she lies. Walters is not the Walters of old. What makes anyone think this criminal, not actress, but criminal will be truthful? If Lohan went into a blind interview with no strings attached she'd be torn a new one, like her skank mom was on Dr. Phil.

Why does anyone ever want to interview Lindsay? Listening to her delusional coke ramble is like listening to a turd trying to explain how it got to the toilet.

Doesn't it occur to people,that all this "misbehavior", is deliberately planned and carefully orchestrated to elicit
reactions and gain attention from the public?? Much like the Kardashian family-every move is plotted and strategized to garner the maximun response from the public..Unfortunately, it seems to keep working.Who are the real "enablers", here?

It really is ridiculous how many lies Lindsay and her people spin. She is not close to Barbara, nor has she ever been. She's about as close to Barbara as every other celebrity on the planet is. Barbara could care less about her one way or the other, all Lindsay is to her is ratings. If she's counting on Barbara not to ask things that she doesn't want to talk about, then she's even more ignorant that I thought. Just wait, after the interview she'll be going off about how she can't believe Barbara did this or that, because they were so close. Such BS.

She needs the money. Already spent the movie money on cigarettes, drugs and paying her mom's debts.
