She’s all done up like the Hollywood legend in the first official photo from the film, complete with a black bob, smoky eye makeup and lipstick. The black-and-white still also features her Richard Burton, “True Blood” actor Grant Bowler, kissing the smiling actress’ neck. E! News reports that the photo was shot on May 29 at Lifetime Studios. The source added that they released the photo in black and white because they wanted to give it a “classic” look.
In addition to the official first look, there have been several paparazzi shots of Lohan on set that have hit the Internet. On Monday, a photo of Lohan wearing a leopard-print bathing suit and sunglasses while hanging out a boat was released on People.com. That same day, another photo of the star channeling Taylor hit TMZ. In it, she’s wearing an emerald green and ivory colored gown, smoking a cigarette. The site reports that Lohan isn’t wearing a wig in the film, but instead had her hair cut and colored to mimic the screen legend’s own signature look.
On Tuesday, Lohan and Bowler were photographed on a boat in what appeared to be a heated scene, where he was physically tossing her about (resulting in a bit of a wardrobe malfunction for Lohan). The Daily Mail reports that the scene will re-create the couple’s splashy vacation in Naples in 1965.
The story will focus on the steamy — and contentious — love affair between Taylor and Burton. The pair defined and redefined the rules for modern celebrity life as their torrid love affair often made the kind of the kind of headlines that would rival Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. “I have always admired and had enormous respect for Elizabeth Taylor,” Lohan said in the statement. “She was not only an incredible actress but an amazing woman as well. I am very honored to have been asked to play this role.”
