‘GMA’: Lindsay Lohan Is ‘Nervous’ About Reaction to Her Portrayal of Liz Taylor

Barbara Walters must really be steaming now. After ditching her interview with Walters, Lindsay Lohan has now made the second of three other media appearances, this time dropping by “Good Morning America” Friday morning.

Lohan, 26, is promoting her new Lifetime movie “Liz & Dick,” while trying to downplay the personal drama that overshadows her career.

Clearly, she’s hoping her role as the legendary Elizabeth Taylor sets the stage for a comeback.

But Lohan admits to “GMA” that the pressure of playing the Hollywood icon did weigh on Lohan.

“It’s really nerve-wracking to play someone who is such an incredible force,” she said. “I was nervous to see what people would think about it…,” but, “I’m lucky because I do relate to Elizabeth Taylor in a lot of ways.”

One method Lindsay used was to stay in character through much of filming and she claims she kept her friends away from the set so she could keep her focus. “My friends didn’t come to my trailer a lot because I was Cleopatra, or Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, and Virginia Woolf the entire time.”

While she awaits the viewers’ verdict, La Lohan at least hopes that she’s pleased La Liz.

“I hope my love for acting really shows through,” she said. “I did the best that I could and I hope Elizabeth [Taylor] is happy, watching from above.”

Lohan’s sudden media blitz (look for her on “The Tonight Show” next Tuesday) must be keeping her so busy that she can’t keep up with the news. When “GMA’s” Amy Robach brought up Thursday’s news that Lohan’s father Michael revealed paternity test results on a TV show that confirm he fathered a child, now 17, Lohan brushed it off.

“I didn’t even hear that, so thanks for the news!” Lohan exclaimed.
