The 26-year-old actress missed out on the chance to meet Taylor because she was "too nervous" to join the late legend for dinner - and it's a decision she will always regret.
Troubled actress Lindsay Lohan,
who plays Elizabeth Taylor in the new TV movie Liz and Dick,
said she once turned down a dinner invitation from the screen
legend out of nervousness.
The 26-year-old actress missed out on the chance to meet
Taylor because she was "too nervous" to join the late legend
for dinner - and it's a decision she will always regret.
"She had actually sent me a ring once and invited me to
dinner, but I was genuinely just too nervous," Lohan told talk
show host Jay Leno.
The new Lifetime movie is about the screen icon's
tumultuous relationship with Richard Burton, and Lohan had a
little extra insight into the private life of her Hollywood
idol thanks to Taylor's personal nurse.
"My entertainment lawyer, he knows the nurse that was
with her for about seven/eight years, so I became good friends
with her and she was on set most of the days I was working and
she actually gave me one of Elizabeth's furs, which was nice
"It was nice to have the inside things that I didn't
know, that when she was home in bed she would karaoke
sometimes to (the radio). It's the small details," said Lohan.
