According to The Hollywood Reporter, Lindsay Lohan has canceled a scheduled interview with 20/20's Barbara Walters in which she was to promote her upcoming Lifetime original movie 'Liz & Dick.' The appearance had been scheduled for November 16th.
In a statement released to THR, ABC News commented, "We are disappointed that Lindsay cancelled the interview and wish her well."
Lifetime's Liz & Dick is scheduled to debut on November 25th. Lohan will portray legendary screen actress Elizabeth Taylor. Commenting on being cast in the role, Lohan said, "I have always admired and had enormous respect for Elizabeth Taylor. She was not only an incredible actress but an amazing woman as well. I am very honored to have been asked to play this role."
According to the film's official synopsis:
For nearly a quarter of a century, Taylor and Burton were Hollywood royalty and their fiery romance -- often called "the marriage of the century" -- was the most notorious, publicized and celebrated love affair of its day. Swarmed by paparazzi, Taylor and Burton's love affair was played out entirely in front of the global press from the time they met on the set of the major motion picture Cleopatra, left their respective spouses, married and divorced, only to remarry and divorce once again. Despite their roller coaster romance for the public eye to see, Taylor and Burton shared an undeniable love greater than most people could have ever dreamed.
