Rosie O’Donnell was on the Today show with Matt Lauer this morning, and everything was going boring until she was asked her thoughts on Lindsay Lohan being cast as Elizabeth Taylor. Then it got less boring. TMZ reports:
O’Donnell instantly made her feelings known — “I feel very sorry for her … I think 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.” When Deutsch suggested, “She’s our generation’s Elizabeth Taylor” … O’Donnell lost it. “You’re out of your mind! You’re a crackhead! The last thing she did good she was sixteen.” Rosie continued, “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.”
Usually whatever comes out of O’Donnell’s mouth is insane conspiracies and not food, but she’s pretty much dead on here. Lindsay should be chained to a wall in a rehab clinic wearing a shock collar whenever she thinks about vodka or cocaine. Actually they should make that movie instead. You’re welcome, Hollywood.
