Lindsay Lohan on Rosie's remarks: 'So intrusive'

After Rosie O'Donnell remarked that Lindsay Lohan is neither right nor ready to play a young Liz Taylor in a Lifetime film, Lohan herself is questioning where O'Donnell's getting her info from.

"It's funny that someone you don't know at all can say something so intrusive and so knowing," the 25-year-old actress told "Access Hollywood" Tuesday evening.

O'Donnell told Matt Lauer on the "Today" show earlier that day that she feels "sorry" for Lohan, who's been cast as the late legend in Lifetime's "Liz & Dick."

"She's not in a place to work," O'Donnell said. "I don't think she's right for the role, and I don't think she's capable at this point of doing what's needed."

Lohan's rep fired back that O'Donnell should "focus on her own career right now and not worry about everyone else's," and even Lohan's dad has joined the response train.

"Is Rosie in ANY position to judge anyone?" Michael Lohan inquired in a statement to the Huffington Post. "I will fight tooth and nail for what's right! In this case, Rosie, you are wrong."

Lifetime execs seem to agree. When the network announced that Lohan, who has been trying to resurrect her career after personal troubles began to eclipse it, was officially their Dame Taylor, the executive VP of programming for Lifetime called her "one of the rare actresses who possesses the talent, beauty and intrigue to capture the spirit of such a provocative icon."

And then there's the fact, to hear producer Larry Thompson tell it, that Lohan "may be the most insured actress that ever walked on a soundstage," as he said to E!.

  5. Raynor the Intelligent Atheist

    I was so pleased to hear the Rosie O'Donnell converted to atheism. Ms. O'Donnell is one of those rare, intelligent, well educated celebrities who tells it like it is and isn't afraid to do so! As the US continues to become a more progressive nation, I'm hopeful that we will have finally discarded the antiquated beliefs that has kept the US on the back burner. It's time to move on; modernism, realism and rational thought will bring this country out of the hideous doldrums that our misguided forefathers infused in the beginning. I praise Barack Obama for his leadership, integrity, intelligence, poise and dignity. President Obama has done more to forge us ahead and not look back. We need to keep this hope alive and not let some backward religious nut like Mit Romney destroy what President Obama toiled over for so long. I urge you people to PLEASE re-elect President Barack Obama in 2012.

    Didn't Rosie just get fired from OWN for being talentless and abusive to the staff and so pathetic she could not muster any meaningful ratings? The Donald was correct. I hope her cruise ship sinks with her on it. I am sure Lifetime will get the best ratings ever with this project, ratings only a loser like O'Donnell could ever dream of.

    It's interesting that Lindsey would be surprised by Rosie O'Donnell or anyone else who stands in a supermarket checkout line would have an opinion about her ability to handle regular work. Her life and lack of control are splashed all over the tabloids non-stop and even if you don't give a right rat's ass about her you still have to see the pics and the headlines whether you want to or not.
    Although it's unlikely I will view the proposed film, I agree a more professional actress may have been a better choice.

    the only reason Lohan took offence is because, for once, O'Donnell has struck a nerve & is absolutely correct in her judgement. People who point out that Elizabeth herself suffered drug addiction & went through rehab, forget that Ms Taylor became addicted to pills due to chronic pain suffered from a back injury. Lohan was heavily in to drug & alcohol because she was hanging out with the rest of Hollywoods drunken "Celebutantes." Major difference. I think the real reason Lifetime got Lohan is because she comes cheap (pun intended) and they couldn't afford anyone better.

    Rosie was responding to a question and gave her opinion. I personally don't like Lohan for the role because she in no way resembles Liz Taylor but Lifetime can cast whoever they want. It was only about 6 months ago she got dumped as porn star Linda Lovelace. She has some serious issues and I hoe she overcomes them. Robert Downey is on o my favorite actors and he came back from a similar crash and burn. For me, Hugh, I don't think LL is a very good actress or beautiful – which makes me disappointed in te casting, i hope I am wrong. Maybe it willbe a turning point for LL in ER career and personal life . My advice for her is to get as far away from her mom and dad as possible. They are disgusting leeches and not parents.

    Lohan was a decent actress, not sure about now? Liz Taylor wasn't perfect, she was married a lot and had some drug issues, but she also did a lot of charity work and had a lot of heartbreak in her life too. Hollywood was a different place, plus I think she was just more private in general. I don't like Lindsay for the role either, but it sounds like the movie is a done deal, let's see who watches!

    Rosie O'gobble is the first one to attack anyone who says anything about her so I guess she can add hypocrite to being fat, obnoxious, and has been.

    I would not pay 2 cents to see a movie with Lindsay in it. The big lips have to go. How is she supposed to play a young Liz when she looks like she is 50? Glad she is getting her life back together, but this is ridiculous. Guess she is bopping the director. I am with Rosie 100% on this.

    Add a couple divorces to Lindsays resume and she would be Liz. Sounds more like jealousy or stupidity from rosie on this, so pretty much her usual.

    Don't kid yourselves, Elizabeth Taylor was a second rate talent herself, at best. She was mostly known for her beauty and air of superiority. Lindsay is perfect for the role.

    Rosie makes her living on being controversial. Of course she is going to judge people. Ironically though in the past rosie has condemned anyone who dared judge her, so I guess shes just another pseudo celebrity hypocrite.

    having Lindsey as a lead in anything is a guarantee that the show/movie will bomb. Lindsay needs to take baby steps to regain professional (and fan) respect, not be cast as a lead in anything – especially something about Elizabeth Taylor as casting her as Liz is a disgrace to such a beloved star.

    I don't think Lindsay realizes how much people just don't like her anymore. Her actions are that of a brat and for the money she makes, people expect more than what they have seen these past few years. She just doesn't get it.....your fans matter.

    Lindsay messed up. Everyone of us have one time or another. Even Rosie has afew times as we all know. Linds like everyone else should be given a chance to prove herself. She has paid her dues. I think she deserves a clean slate.

    As for her playing Elizabeth Taylor? Who actually can? She is an icon. Whoever they cast as Elizabeth will always have critics. Lets hope Linds does the role justice. This is afterall basically her make it or break it. Lets hope she proves people wrong.

      OMG!! Both were thrown into show biz at practically birth, both had horror stage moms, both slipped into addiction of drugs and alcohol, both had a raw talent, both made bad career chioces, both loved jewerly (lol), tho Liz didnt steal hers... we all know that we love to hate em and drag em down– :) They are both stunnigl beautiful, and well- um– endowed!! LOL. But most importantl the both screwed up in life and made mistakes like we all do... Liz in her later ears was a champion of AIDS and worthy causes. Lindsey still has time for that. Oh and lets not forget they were chain smoking freaks!! The onl difference that I see is Liz loved men, and Lindsey not soo much. I think that will change tho.. There is NOBODY better to play LIZ TALOR!!!

    If Lohan plays Liz Taylor in a movie, I will pay $10 ticket to go see it.
    O'Donnell plays any role in any movie? I will not go see it even if they pay me $50.
    My point is I only want to see pretty people in the movies.

    I completely agree that Lohan is all wrong to have been cast as Elizabeth Taylor. And, I wonder if Lohan owns a dictionary, since her vocabularly is obviously lacking. Someone should explain to her what the word "intrusive" really means, before she misuses it again. Also, someone should force Lohan to look at the picture I just saw posted of her online, wearing what looks like a white peasant blouse sans skirt. When you're her age and unfit, your thighs get fat and saggy and wearing anything that short in public is disgraceful (and offensive to anyone who has to see it.) One would think with all her free time she would've done a few exercises, if she really is motivated to attempt a relaunch of her career. Personally, I'd rather not see Lohan on my TV screen ever again.

    okay everybody....lighten up. It is just an opinion that Rosie has expressed. I think she is right....but then again it is just my opinion. I don't feel that Lindsay will be believeable as Liz Taylor.

    I just think that LL should go find something else to do. I feel kind of bad for her. She used to be so pretty and now, at 25, she looks like she could be in her 50s. That performance she gave on SNL was lackluster at best. I just think she should take herself out of the public eye and focus on building a non-acting career. Too much damage has been done.

    Why does Lindsay keep getting roles? It's like hollywood has some kind of selective amnesia where they forget how bad she is.

      How bad is she? She made some stupid mistakes, as most of us have. I had some run ins with the law when I was young. Now, I am a proud member of law enforcement. My mistakes in the past have helped me in my present position. Who are you to say she can't learn from her mistakes and make her life better.

    Oh, come on Lindsay. You're so easy to read, anybody can do it. And Rosie was asked for her remarks by the Today show. She was thoughtful and insightful about your trainwreck of a life. You, (or your PR guy) and your rageaholic father owe her an apology.

    Yes, others should mind their own business. But come on, folks. Because it takes a frickin' rocket scientist to see that Lindsay Lohan has fallen off the wagon SEVERAL times, has been in trouble with the law COUNTLESS times and, based on facts reported in her cases, she is one of the most unreliable people, let alone actress, out there!??! Really Lindsay's dad? Really?!?! YOU???!!! Lashing out? I'm not a Rosie fan, but I'll give it to her – she had the cojones to say what's on EVERYBODY'S mind! "Lindsay, you aren't worthy to play such an iconic figure given your failed past! You can't compare to ONE of Liz's pinkies, let alone her entire character!" Ridiculous.

    That is a crappy statement to make just to hear yourself talk Rosie...you do not know her personally from what I just read, so why judge her? She was messed up, like many actors/actress can get, but she has done what was required of her, she looks healthy, and she wants to get back to work, so let her without drumming up more drama!
