I’m hearing this rumor about a new Elizabeth Taylor movie. My first thought is, how do you find someone to play her? She was truly a timeless classic that will be difficult to replicate. I’m afraid this movie is already setting itself up for failure. Sherilyn Fenn played her in the 1995 made for TV movie Liz: The Elizabeth Taylor Story. Who saw that? I sure didn’t.
Zap 2 it is saying Lindsay Lohan or Megan Fox may be considered, but really? Sure, they are both gorgeous and could perhaps pull off the her look, but can they imitate her classic old school essence? Can they be sexy without being skanky? Can you tell I’m a critic? This is one I’ll have to believe when I see it.
A few interesting facts about Elizabeth Taylor:
-Married Richard Burton twice. Once in 1976, and again in 1974.
