Lindsay Lohan

New Half-Sister

Is News to Me

11/16/2012 7:05 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

BRAVO! Lindsay Lohan's such a brilliant actress ... she nearly convinced the world today that she didn't know about her newly-announced 17-year-old half-sister -- claiming, "I don't pay attention to any of that."

Of course, the news was everywhere yesterday after TMZ broke the story -- Lindsay's dad Michael Lohan took a paternity test for a 17-year-old girl named Ashley ... and the results came back positive.

But today on "Good Morning America" -- where Lindsay was trying to promote her new movie "Liz & Dick" -- she had the audacity to say, "I didn't even hear that."

And we weren't born yesterday ... just like Lindsay's previously-fatherless sister.

Not to worry this movie will tank and Lohan will blame the writers and eveyone else but herself. Not that she's a no talent hack, has been. There is no comeback for Lohan.


Lohan needs to stick to the tabloid joke she is. Giving her track record she's going to need it.

Was Lindsay being sarcastic?

Lindsay KNEW of this love child long ago. She DOES pay attention to some gossip, so she might as well not lie about things.

I cant say anything bad about her man, seeing the horrible upbringing that she had and is still continuing to endure.
How much can this girl take, its taking a toll on her physically and mentally!
She needs to just move away from all of it, we are watching a woman get sucked down by all the demons around her, one side is using her for money (industry) the other side is using her for money (parents), she has never had any ANY stability.

Lindsay please no more drugs, drinking, if I were you I would buy a farm some where and just cut your hair and make friends with people who don't know who you are, you need to break free from all of this.

People do care about you and want the best for you, Im not a super fan of yours but i do think you are a good person deep down and deserve a better life that only you can give yourself.

LOL... So basically what they are saying...the movie itself isn't that bad, despite Lindsay's poor performance!

From Yahoo:

Lindsay Lohan gets slammed in an early 'Liz & Dick' review, but it’s not all bad news

The early reviews are in for Lindsay Lohan’s much-buzzed-about Lifetime TV movie “Liz & Dick,” and let’s just say the star won’t be putting a bottle of champagne on her ridiculously-high tab at the Chateau Marmont after reading some of them. However, it isn’t all bad news for the troubled star, who is desperately in need of a hit to remind people she’s more than just tabloid fodder.

The Hollywood Reporter’s Tim Goodman provides the harshest of the lot. Describing the biopic about Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton as “half train wreck, half ‘SNL’ skit,” he flat out calls it “spectacularly bad,” noting that it is “like a high school play” and it “truly drags.” As for Lohan, she is “woeful as Taylor from start to finish” and “there is not one minute in this film where she’s believable.” He specifically calls out how bad she is playing an older version of Taylor. “The moment Lohan appears in this get-up, it’s impossible not to laugh. It really does look like ‘SNL.’ She can’t really pull off the young, sexy Liz with much believability, so the mid-’80s look is awkward squared.”

Despite the scathing review, Goodman admits “you can’t take your eyes off of Lohan,” and recommends that viewers tune in – to have a good laugh! “Lohan as Taylor was a bad idea in the dramatic sense, but it’s pure genius both for marketing and for belly laughs and drinking games,” he notes. He goes on to say that, if viewing the movie with the right people and the right drinks, by the end of the film you could be laughing so hard at Lohan dressed as the ’80s-era Taylor that “your body may be cramped by convulsions.”

Variety’s Brian Lowry is a little kinder. While he also suggests a drinking game (“taking a swig every time a doctor or associate delivers bad news”), he describes the movie as “actually pretty good, all things considered.” Lohan isn’t the shining star in the movie however – her performance is labeled “adequate, barring a few awkward moments” – that honor goes to her co-star New Zealander Grant Bowler, who “classes up” “Liz & Dick” and is “the movie's secret weapon.” Lowry ends the review by noting, “In a sense, the producers shrewdly used Lohan – no stranger to the tabloids herself – as a publicity multiplier, but they needn't have worried. Because while ‘Liz & Dick’ is wobbly at times, the movie ultimately stands on its own.”

Meanwhile, the Denver Post’s Joanne Ostrow’s take is that the production is so stunning that it makes up for any bad dialogue or lackluster performances. Calling it a “glittery festival of great photographs and moving images,” she notes, “No matter what you think of the actors, the great period stylings, not to mention ‘Cleopatra’-period costumes, make this jewel-encrusted, ****tail-soaked, often tragic saga a rip-roaring good time.” As for Lohan, she is “stunning” though “unbelievable when talking about [Taylor’s] weight problem.”

So it seems that “Liz & Dick” really isn’t that bad. If you go into it with the right mindset -- knowing it will be campy and over-the-top with the typical bad TV movie dialogue – it could actually be enjoyable. And perhaps a great way to counterbalance all that football during Thanksgiving weekend.

ilg,
You're proving my point. Haters are desperate!!!! You just can't wait until all the reviews come out. At least I don't know if the movie will be good or bad. All that matters is the fact that huge numbers of people will watch again and again and agin...............

OMG! She looks so much older than 26. She looks 46 and her voice sounds like an old lady who chained smoked for 30 years. Her hair looked really nice though.

@Red Cloud

What are you talking about? These ARE the reviews. The reviews by the CRITICS...which is what I have been waiting for. They are the only ones that matter to me. Not a review by you or by any of us haters. I want to know what the real critics think. (You do realize the reviewers received an advanced copy, right? So they review it BEFORE it airs, to generate buzz...or do you really not know that???)

People will watch this, I'm sure, for many reasons, including Lindsay's fanbase, Liz's fanbase, the trainwreck feature, etc.

But all that matters to me are what the critics think of it, since they are unbiased.

The reviews aren't good so far when it comes to Lindsay's acting. You can't dispute that fact!!!

ILG...not that bad? From the most influential critic so far:


"The Lifetime movie starring Lindsay Lohan as Elizabeth Taylor is half train wreck, half "SNL" skit."

"A good deal of the limited amount of tolerable dialogue from writer Christopher Monger goes to Bowler."

"It should come as no great surprise that Lifetime’s Liz & Dick movie starring Lindsay Lohan is spectacularly bad."

"Lohan is woeful as Taylor from start to finish."

"On to the parts of the film where people walk and talk. The talking part doesn’t turn out so well for Lohan. There is not one minute in this film where she’s believable."

Lindsay doesn't care about herself, what makes you think she will care about a half sister. The parent she hates had her half sister.

Now I see why she hasn't put out another album. Her voice is gone. She sounds like an old woman. See what smoking does to you kids? Just say no!
