When Lindsey Lohan was selected to play the role of Elizabeth Taylor, the entertainment world, silently disapproved. It seemed that everyone was thinking the same thing, but no one wanted to say it out loud. Rosie Odonnell, is apparently unafraid. In an interview with the Today Show, Rosie ripped Lohan, declaring her to be thoroughly unfit for the role. O’Donnell was hosting the show, when the topic of “Liz and Dick” a Lifetime Movie, dedicated to Elizabeth Taylor came up. At first, Odonnell was empathetic towards Lindsey. She declared, “I feel very sorry for her”. Her primary objections were that Lindsay was still eradic and unpredictable. She pointed out that the starlet failed to even perform well on SNL. But when fellow guest panelists, Star Jones and Donny Deutch began to defend Lindsay’s casting Rosie became more emphatic. “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 to portray that character. She effectively declared Lindsay to be a “has-been” when she added, “I think the interest level in her has waned significantly”. When Donny Deutsch pushed back claiming that “Lohan is our generation’s Elizabeth Taylor”, ROSIE LOST IT! She declared, “You’re out of your mind! You’re a crackhead! The Last Thing she did good she was sixteen”!
