Lindsay Lohan was so desperate to play Dame Elizabeth Taylor in a new TV biopic, she offered to work for free.
The Mean Girls star is preparing to make a career comeback after a tumultuous couple of years, during which she has battled legal woes, stints in rehab and short spells in jail.
And Lohan admits she had to fight to land her dream role in the TV biopic of late screen legend Dame Elizabeth Taylor, titled Liz & Dick.

She even offered to forgo a pay cheque as she battled to win the part.
During a question-and-answer session at a Los Angeles screening of Liz & Dick on Wednesday, she told reporters, "I didn't get the project at first. I started calling and harassing agents... because I felt people were hesitant (to cast me), which I understood.
"I actually said, 'I'll just do it for free'. My agent was like, 'No, no, no, don't say that'."
