Lindsay Lohan

I'm Sitting Down

with Barbara Walters

EXCLUSIVE

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."

Oh c’mon! Lol! How NAÏVE is she to think Barbara Walters will go easy on her!? And to think she will discuss how Lindsay compares to Liz? Maybe as a child, but that’s it. I think I’ll watch the interview, but not Liz and Dick. Good luck with that Linds ….Lol

Hey LINDSAY! In case you haven’t figured it out yet, people love to gossip and make fun of you because you are a HOT MESS, constantly outdoing YOURSELF with your crazy, stupid, immoral and sometimes illegal antics. If you REALLY want to work as a serious actress and gain people’s respect, get your ass into rehab and stay the hell away from your parents! P.s. Brit Brit did it, so anything’s possible …

Lindsay does not compare in any way with Elizabeth Taylor. Lindsay doesn't have any class. She and her family are drug addicted low level people.
Elizabeth Taylor was all class all the time. Even in her worst times.
Lindsay's parents have both enabled her to be the way she is and have supported her in her life. No way should a parent be partying with a young person. The parent should also not expect their child to support them financially.

WHERE ARE ALL THE REAL CELEBRITIES    
Allow me to translate. In Lohanspeak, "sitting down" entails, making sure the lighting is soft enough to hide flaws that can no longer be hidden, confirming with the interviewer whether, "we're rolling," deflecting each and every question, fidgeting, unprovoked emotional outbursts, fist bumps, constantly wiping away tears that just don't seem to shed. flipping the bird, talking about all your accomplishments, real or imagined, end interview with by telling interviewer that "The Truth Will Prevail," even though that's the exact reason why he/she wanted to interview you in the first place.

time to start peppering semi-senile Babs with questions to pose:
-Why are you homeless?
-What will you wear for your perp walk in NYC on October 23rd?
-Consider yourself lucky for not being arrested for pulling a fire alarm in a hotel at 6 in the morning because of your nonsense with a random that you invited up to your room to party?

....the list is endless...

jealous of kate    

barbara walters.... big deal... being interviewed by BW USED to mean something.. but now, we are talking about the person who sits on a 'panel' and AGREES with the views of Whoopi 'blacks are still being held back GOLDBERG' and Joy 'I love kissing obama's butt' behr. and NOW... SHE IS SUPPOSEDLY GOING TO INTERVIEW LOHAN??? Wow, that even tops that question decades ago -'if you were a tree, what kind of tree would you be?'

AND ... what is all this FANFARE about this MOVIE LIZ AND DICK??? Does anyone out there realize... IT IS A LIFETIME MOVIE??? Lifetime.. the place where washed up, never were and has beens end up ? Movies that are themed with ... alcoholic wives, wives that are beaten, wives that are alcoholic and beaten... women whose children are abducted, women whose children are abducted and turn to alcohol and their husbands turn to beating them..... and now.. we have Liz and Dick.... but then again... Liz Taylor... an actress who turned to alcohol and pills......etcetcetc... and Lifetime is also the home of DANCE MOMS... that alone should shot down any thoughts of respectable that anyone had for this movie and when I said ANYONE... I mean at the most ONE PERSON.. AT THE MOST!
