She told The Hollywood Reporter: "I think we have a lot of similarities, with growing up famous her whole life and living your life in the public eye."

Co-star Andy Hirsch, who plays Eddie Fisher in the film, commented that Lohan and Taylor "led parallel lives at this point in Lindsay's life to a large degree", adding: "They started out so young and were really successful. The press loved, hated them or hounded them so much."

Lohan, 25, fought for the role of Taylor despite initially being passed over - at one point even offering to play the part for free.

The actress, who has had several troubled episodes in the past including problems with drugs and a "toxic" relationship with ex-girlfriend Samantha Ronson, hopes that Liz & Dick will help to relaunch her career, and looks up to Taylor as an inspiration.

She added: "It's hard, but there are certain people - I look to her because she got through it."
