Itâ€™s safe to say Rosie Oâ€™Donnell is not a fan of Lindsay Lohan. The comedienne basically slammed the actress, claiming she is currently not capable of doing a good job, after LiLo was officially confirmed to be playing Dame Elizabeth Taylor in an upcoming biopic for Lifetime titled â€œLiz and Dick.â€
In an interview on The Today Show (video below), Rosie said: â€œI feel very sorry for her [Lindsay]… I think she needs a lot of time away … Sheâ€™s had a lot of trouble doing every single movie, including â€˜SNL.â€™ She was out and not in rehearsal. I think sheâ€™s not in a place to work.â€
Donny Deutsch argued: â€œSheâ€™s our generationâ€™s Elizabeth Taylor!â€
To which Rosie retorted: â€œYouâ€™re out of your mind! Youâ€™re a crackhead! The last thing she did good she was sixteen.â€ Adding, â€œI donâ€™t think sheâ€™s right for the role, and I donâ€™t think sheâ€™s capable at this point to portray that character.â€
For once, Rosie is absolutely right. I cannot even remember a time when Lindsayâ€™s movies actually got good reviews and she cannot continue living in the shadow of â€œHerbie: Fully Loadedâ€ (2005) and â€œFreaky Fridayâ€ (2003), which in my humble opinion werenâ€™t even that good.
