She agrees with Elizabeth Taylor on that...
In an interview with The Daily Mirror, Lindsay Lohan talked about her love life and compared it to that of Elizabeth Taylor, who she plays in Lifetime's Liz & Dick.
On her love life: "I can only imagine what it would be like to have the kind of love that she and Richard Burton had. It's such a wonderful thing. It's so heartbreaking. Love is scary and I'm yet to find that one person. I relate to the fact that Elizabeth Taylor once said, ‘I love being in love.' I do, too. I love being in love. There's nothing better than that first feeling of being in love, so I look forward to having that at some point. Yes, I've been in love with people – maybe one or two – but I haven't really had a true love yet."
On getting the role: "I fought to get the role in Liz and Dick because I related to her so much because of her position in the public eye and the media obsession with her, and the ups and downs in her relationships and life. And that's aside from her love for diamonds! We're both strong-willed and Elizabeth and her mother had a similar bond to the one I have with my mother. I learned from Liz that it's OK to be in love and have heartache. She and Burton loved each other so much it was scary."
On her love of acting: "I said to everyone I was working with, ‘Just keep me on set' because that's where I'm happiest and I lost that feeling for a while. Now I have it back I don't want to give it up. I just want to keep making films. That's my focus. I know that I'm a really good actress and I know I've had my faults. But knowing that and knowing that I love what I do has kept me going."
