Lindsay Lohan, 'Liz & Dick': Actress Felt 'Ready To Play' Elizabeth Taylor

You loved it, you hated it, you still watched "Liz & Dick" last night. (For the most scathing viewer reviews of the Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton biopic starring Lindsay Lohan, click here). But for her part, the Lifetime role has given 26-year-old Lohan the opportunity to give her first movie-related interviews in a while, like this juicy one she gave Us Weekly.

"Everything I've gone through made me ready to play Liz," she told the publication, but Taylor ended the comparisons there. "Elizabeth was drunk on sets. I've never been drunk on set, ever. I did my time and I respect the law."

Lohan also opened up about the scandals and drama that have made her everyday tabloid fodder. She admitted to feeling "bullied" by the extreme media attention. "Since I was a kid, I've loved being on camera. Don't misconstrue that: I didn't strive to have flashbulbs at dinner or people who don't know me calling TMZ. And 99 percent of the time, it's not true. I feel bullied. I can't think of any actor who has been subjected to such extreme publicity who hasn't, like, committed suicide."
