Rosie O'Donnell Says Casting Lindsay Lohan as Elizabeth Taylor is a Bad Idea - Watch

Never one to hold back, Rosie O’Donnell has weighed in on Lifetime’s casting of Lindsay Lohan as Elizabeth Taylor in an upcoming film, saying Lohan is “not capable” of portraying the beloved icon.

Never one to hold back, Rosie O’Donnell has weighed in on Lifetime’s casting of Lindsay Lohan as Elizabeth Taylor in an upcoming film, saying Lohan is “not capable” of portraying the beloved icon.

O’Donnell appeared on The Today Show Tuesday as part of the Today’s Professionals panel with Star Jones and Donnie Deutsch.

"I feel very sorry for her," O'Donnell said. “I think she needs a lot of help. She needs a lot of time away. She’s had a lot of trouble doing every single movie, including SNL. She was out and not in rehearsal. I think she’s not in a place to work.” 

While Jones admitted she hadn’t seen enough of Lohan’s work in recent years to form an opinion Deutsch called Lohan “our generation’s Elizabeth Taylor.”

But O’Donnell, who does not appear to have a lot of lost for Deutsch, fired back and said “You’re out of your mind. You’re a crackhead! The last thing she did good she was sixteen...I don’t think she’s right for the role, and I don’t think she’s capable at this point to portray that character.”
