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."

Funny, no mention of this on Barbara's twitter. The panel on the Veiw, always rips Lindsay and Dina to shreads.

Nobody cares what this pathetic person has to say. It will be the same old thing 'oh am clean and sober' 'everyones out to get me' and just blaming everyone else for her problems. I dont why these people are always interviewing this family all they do is lie and chat a load of ****. She will never change and is way beyond help now. Sick of hearing about her she and her trashy family need to just go away her career in Hollywood is well and truely over and her image is beyond repair. She is a joke.

Yeah, she claimed to be "close" with Woody Allen also. Then Wood said he had only met her once before. I've heard Barbara talk about Lindsay on The View, Barbara didn't sound like she was speaking of somebody she's "close" with.

Lindsay claims to be close friends with any important/famous/influential person who breathes in her direction, but you know that's bull****, drug addicts don't have friends.

Watching Lindsay's interviews is pointless because it's all a performance. Nothing that comes out of her mouth is honest or truthful. And I kind of respect Barbara a little less for giving this moron the time of day.

@Marmel: Lindsay Lohan is voting for Romney because of the unemployment rate. Honey, your unemployment is your fault. And, you know, drugs.
