Rosie O”Donnell is on the warpath over the casting of Lindsay Lohan in the new Liz Taylor biopic … saying LiLo simply isn”t “capable” to perform the role because her personal life is still a disaster.
Rosie was on the “Today” show with Matt Lauer and Donny Deutsch … when it was announced that Lohan will play Taylor in the upcoming Lifetime movie, “Liz and Dick.”
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.”
