It’s safe to say Rosie O’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 “Liz and Dick.”
In an interview on The Today Show (video below), Rosie said: “I feel very sorry for her [Lindsay]… I think she needs a lot of time away … She’s had a lot of trouble doing every single movie, including ‘SNL.’ She was out and not in rehearsal. I think she’s not in a place to work.”
Donny Deutsch argued: “She’s our generation’s Elizabeth Taylor!”
To which Rosie retorted: “You’re out of your mind! You’re a crackhead! The last thing she did good she was sixteen.” Adding, “I don’t think she’s right for the role, and I don’t think she’s capable at this point to portray that character.”
For once, Rosie is absolutely right. I cannot even remember a time when Lindsay’s movies actually got good reviews and she cannot continue living in the shadow of “Herbie: Fully Loaded” (2005) and “Freaky Friday” (2003), which in my humble opinion weren’t even that good.
