Television presenter Rosie O'Donnell has slammed actress Lindsay
Lohan over news she will play Elizabeth Taylor in a forthcoming TV
In a bizarre rant, O'Donnell said yesterday: "The last thing she
did good (was when) she was 16. I don't think she's right for the
role and I don't think she's capable at this point to portray that
But now, after Lohan personally responded to the outburst and
said she was "shocked", O'Donnell has now refined her comments.
In a written explanation on her website, she insists she simply
wants Lohan to stops self-destructing.
"To me working right now seems like a bad idea it is not about
her talent it is about her health Lindsay Lohan needs help," she
"I met her when she was a young girl smart adorable and full of
light we all watched her this last decade a true Hollywood story...
the exact feeling I had watching Whitney Houston's funeral in
Newark we all should have spoken up for her too.
"We believe in u, u r not alone help is available u r loved.
Lindsay Lohan is worth saving she is the only one who can do it
before it is 2 late, I hope she can finds (sic) her value - off
camera. And then - when she returns - on camera she will wow us all
once more peace."
