Well, there you have it. Lindsay Lohan is Liz Taylor incarnate, at least in the wardrobe department.
TMZ.com obtained a photo of the 25-year-old actress on set of Lifetime’s Elizabeth Taylor bio-pic which begins filming this week. Lohan stars as the late acting icon alongside “True Blood’s” Grant Bowler, who plays one of Taylor’s many husbands, Richard Burton.
Lohan’s rep declined to comment on how the actress prepared for the part, but according to TMZ, she cut and dyed her blonde locks to mimic Taylor’s brunette ‘do, because what’s a few inches for the role that could relaunch your stalled career?
UPDATE: And here’s the first official photo of Lohan as Taylor and Bowler as Burton, released this afternoon by Lifetime. One wonders if they’re working in a “Dracula” theme.
