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."

Liz's diamonds had more talent that Lindsay does these days. She could only dream about having the career and success of Liz Taylor. I wouldn't watch this movie if they paid me. Blasphemy!!!

What good does an interview if everything is lies and the world as Lindsay sees it. I won't be watching, I'm sick of her.

Walters has become a bigger kiss ass over the years so Lindsay should be able to work her magic on her. Ever since Walters published her book and showed her skank side, she has had a lot more empathy for her fellow skanks.

The pre-View, serious newswoman, Barbara Walters would have asked her difficult questions. Nowdays I don't know, she's not the same journalist she used to be.

Barbra retire you do not have what it takes if your interview is the comparison between Elisebeth taylor and lindsay lohan that sounds like a boring interview.

What's the point of interviewing a KNOWN LIAR????. How many times has Lindsay said she going to say home because she's done with clubbing, drinking, drugs, the nightlife.......and then she never stops doing those things. ALSO there's that tape of her talking to her dad about her mom being on coke and hitting her etc......now she claims she was only joking.BSBSBSBSBSBS.....BS!!!!!!!!!!!!!....I can't believe ANYONE would believe one single word she says...her and the Kardashians..the biggest phonies in hollywood.
