It looks like Marilyn Monroe isn't the only icon Lindsay Lohan can morph into. Elizabeth Taylor may be next on Lindsay's list!
Deadline reports the 25-year-old actress is in early talks for the lead of Lifetime's original movie Elizabeth & Richard: A Love Story. The film will be based on the romance between Richard Burton and Elizabeth.
Although Lindsay's acting roles have been on the bench as she has flittered in and out of rehab, jail, court dates, community service and even a Playboy shoot, it sounds like this could be a fit for the starlet.
A Slate story outlined the similarities: "Both had domineering stage mothers, little semblance of a real childhood, fame from a younge age, substance abuse issues, public emotional outpourings, and copious amounts of tabloid drama. The key difference, though, is that Elizabeth Taylor had a true record of achievement before she became the most notorious movie star in America."
