Rosie O’Donnell has taken a stand on Lindsay Lohan starring in the new Liz Taylor biopic. Appearing on NBC, the outspoken former talk show host said Lohan isn’t “capable” of playing Taylor because her personal life is a disaster.
Lohan is set to star in the Lifetime movie, “Liz and Dick,” but Rosie says she’s not right for the role.
While O’Donnell feels “very sorry for her” she says the troubled starlet did her last good piece of acting when “she was sixteen.” Noting that Lohan has had trouble making in on the big screen since then, O’Donnell proceeded to attack her recent performance on “Saturday Night Live.” Lohan “was out and not in rehearsal. I think she’s not in a place to work.”
When TV pundit Donny Deutsch chimed in to say that Lohan is “our generation’s Elizabeth Taylor”, O’Donnell pounced on him. “You’re out of your mind! You’re a crackhead!
Lohan’s spokesman, Steve Honig, struck back at O’Donnell telling ABC News.com. “I think Rosie should focus on her own career and stop worrying about everybody else’s.”
