Lindsay Lohan Talks Elizabeth Taylor in Behind the Scenes Footage From 'Liz & Dick' (VIDEO)
In brand-new footage released this week, Lohan explains how she was able to connect with the late Oscar-winning icon while filming the much-anticipated project.
"I'm a huge Elizabeth Taylor fan, and I relate to her on a lot of levels -- living in the public eye, dealing with the stress of what other people say, whether it's true or not," she said in the video, above.
"I personally understand Liz, because you're living your life for everyone to see, and people are growing with you," she continued. "You get to a point where you become numb to it, and you just live your life the that way you feel you need to live it."
Also featured in the video is Lohan's co-star, Grant Bowler, who portrays Taylor's on-again-off-again husband, Richard Burton.
The actor had only kind things to say about the 26-year-old scarlet, admitting she is "excellent" to work with.
"She's pretty much Elizbaeth Taylor reincarnated," he said.
Liz & Dick, which chronicles the tumultuous relationship between Taylor and Burton, premieres this November on Lifetime. Watch the behind-the-scenes footage now.
