...yet another Hollywood film I will NEVER watch.

I take pride in saying "never heard of it" when some of my younger coworkers ask me...."have you seen < movie title here >"?

I wonder how much insurance the studio needed to give her the role?

Refresh my memory. Was Ms. Taylor a falling down drunk / drug abuser who went around flashing her cootchie to the paparazzi?

There’s much I could comment on both of them, but I won’t.

At least they waited until Liz died before disgracing her with this drug addict.

Linday was never anything like as beautiful as Elizabeth Taylor was, before the hard livin’ caught up with her.

If that is the title of the film, it will be a very very long movie.

My best friend of 35 years is a movie person. She is retired now and just lays around and watches movies and reads People magazines, etc to keep up on what the stars are doing.
She is constantly talking about this or that movie and the people who star in them. I am constantly telling her.....have never heard of it and have no clue who that is.
She needs to get a life.

Must have. I could think of a couple that don't look like they've been livin' hard that concentrated on the craft, rather than the outlandish acts for publicity.

Notice how LiLo got “straightened out” after getting rid of the “Celebrity DJ” that kept her in a stupor?

I like Carrie Fisher’s joke about what happened when Elizabeth Taylor’s husband Mike Todd died in a plane crash - a man who was a close friend of Eddie Fisher and the “Todd” he named his son after.

“Mom and Dad were great friends with Elizabeth Taylor and her husband Mike Todd. Mike died in a plane crash in 1958, when I was two, and my dad flew to Elizabeth’s side, making his way slowly to her front. He first dried her eyes with his handkerchief, then he consoled her with flowers, and he ultimately consoled her with his penis”

Oh, is it old fashioned to sleep with a man who isn’t your husband, whose wife is a friend of yours, have him get divorced - and THEN marry him?

That’s interesting. Lohan is a beautiful woman in a way that stands out from all the other pretty hollywood stars.

I used to think that she reminded me of Marilyn Monroe.

I know she’s self destructive but if she can hold it together, this might be a good choice.

I never think of Liz Taylor as being trashy or a tramp.

I know she had a problem in later life with overeating and maybe overindulgence in the grape, but, hey, who doesn’t?

:)

And, yes, people would be interested in the Burton/Taylor romance. I would.

I don’t know the names of 3/4 of the people mentioned in magazines or on the net now, but That was a couple.

I’ll never forget the picture of Debbie Reynolds forlornly holding a baby with diaper pins attached to her blouse.

When she was a redhead she reminded me of a young Ann Margret.

Liz was very, very curvy and had a teeny tiny waste. I don’t know how Lohan could possibly do Liz justice at all. Not sure of the logic in this casting.

"Do you feel the same about books and music?"

Hollywood takes children's books and programs, and makes 'social justice' and environmental extremist movies from them, not the other way around. It's not just Children's books either. Anyone with enough drive can make a book or music. The 'book and music' industry is not dependant on big studios run by uber-liberals.

Hollywood is just a propaganda arm of the DemocRAT party, and those who pay into it, will get more of it.

Film is an adaptive medium and always has been so that’s not a just comparison. There are all sorts of films being made by people with same ‘drive’ and financed from various sources.
