Lindsay Lohan on Canceling Barbara Walters Interview: ‘The Timing Wasn’t Right’ (VIDEO)
“The timing wasn’t right, right now,” the troubled 26-year-old starlet told Jay Leno Monday night while promoting her new TV movie, Liz & Dick.
Lohan canceled the much-anticipated interview earlier this month, leaving both Walters and ABC, the network that hosts 20/20, “disappointed.”
“If they’d said to me ‘You know, Barbara, she isn’t up to the kinds of questions that you might ask’ … If they had told me that, I wouldn’t feel quite as disappointed as I do today,” Walters said on the Nov. 12 episode of The View.
The rest of the interview took on an otherwise light-hearted tone, as Leno poked fun at Lohan’s many run-ins with the tabloids.
However, Lohan did take a moment to reflect on joining the business at the young age of three.
“I think I had to step back and kind of take myself out of everything and kind of get my head straight and kind of focus on what it is I wanted to do … You know, you get caught up in everything. It’s important to kind of find yourself and keep yourself through that.”
Liz & Dick, in which Lohan takes on the the role of the iconic actress Elizabeth Taylor, airs Sunday night on Lifetime.
