Video: Barbara Walters Says She's Disappointed With Lindsay Lohan's Latest Moves THR
Barbara Walters said she was "disappointed" that Lindsay Lohan canceled an interview she had scheduled with Walters and then booked time with Jay Leno a few days later, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Walters talked about the canceled “20/20” interview on her ABC talk show “The View.”
When co-host Whoopi Goldberg implied that Walters is a tougher interviewer than Leno, Walters said, "I couldn’t agree with you more. ... If they’d said to me, ‘You know, Barbara, she isn't up to the kinds of questions that you might ask’ -- although most of them were comparing her life to Elizabeth Taylor: both child stars, both aggressive mothers, etc., and it would have been a wonderful, wonderful interview, and she could have set a lot of things straight. If they had told me that, I wouldn’t feel quite as disappointed as I do today.”
Walters added she had spent a lot of time preparing for the interview, including watching "Liz & Dick," the Lifetime movie starring Lohan as Elizabeth Taylor.
Lohan's new publicist called Walters on Friday to say the actress didn't "feel up to" the interview. Said Walters: "I could have had a more honest explanation."
