Striking while the iron is hot, Lifetime’s just unveiled the poster for the made-for-TV movie Liz & Dick starring Lindsay Lohan as Elizabeth Taylor and Grant Bowler as Richard Burton.
The troubled actress is back in the news again after alledgedly having left the scene after clipping a pedestrian outside a nightclub in Manhattan. It’s being reported that Lohan was driving a Porsche Cayenne and didn’t stop and was later arrested and given a desk-appearance ticket for leaving the scene of an accident.
Seriously? Why, after everything that she’s done, doesn’t she have a driver? That would at least keep her from being involved in car accidents.
For nearly a quarter of a century, Taylor and Burton were Hollywood royalty and their fiery romance — often called ‘the marriage of the century’ — was the most notorious, publicized and celebrated love affair of its day. Swarmed by paparazzi, Taylor and Burton’s love affair was played out entirely in front of the global press from the time they met on the set of the major motion picture Cleopatra, left their respective spouses, married and divorced, only to remarry and divorce once again. Despite their roller coaster romance for the public eye to see, Taylor and Burton shared an undeniable love greater than most people could have ever dreamed.”
