Barbara Walters to Interview Lindsay Lohan
UPDATED: The "Liz & Dick" media magnet will sit down with the broadcast icon within the next few weeks.
Lindsay Lohan has given Barbara Walters exclusive dibs on a TV interview that will no doubt focus on her ever-dramatic personal life in addition to her upcoming role in Lifetime's Liz & Dick.
"Lindsay will be doing an exclusive interview with Barbara Walters within the next few weeks. Lindsay greatly admires and respects Barbara, and is looking forward to sitting down with her," Lohan's representative tells THR.
Walters confimed the interview Monday on ABC's The View. It will air Nov. 16 on 20/20.
Liz & Dick, in which Lohan portrays the late Elizabeth Taylor, premieres Nov. 25. The 26-year-old actress has also filmed The Canyons, an L.A.-set indie written by Bret Easton Ellis and co-starring porn actor James Deen.
Meanwhile, Lohan remains front and center in the tabloid spotlight. In the past few weeks, she has been accused of clipping a man with her Porsche outside a New York City nightclub -- grainy surveillance video, however, appears to present evidence to the contrary -- and, several days later, was involved in a confrontation with a hanger-on who allegedly struck her after she requested he remove photos of her from his phone.
Last week, Lohan's parental drama erupted anew when a desperate call she made to her father, Michael, after a fight with her mother, Dina, during a post-partying limo ride from New York to Long Island leaked to TMZ. Hours later, she endorsed Mitt Romney for president.
