The actress - who plays the Oscar-winning movie star in new TV movie Liz & Dick - speaks about understanding her part from the view of a fellow celebrity in a behind-the-scenes clip.
"I personally understand Liz, because you're living your life for everyone to see," she said.
Lohan also explains in the trailer that she is no longer affected by scrutiny and constant attention, after returning to a starring role for the first time in five years on Liz & Dick.
"You get to a point where you become numb to it and you just live your life the way you that you feel you need to live it," she admitted.
Co-star Grant Bowler, who plays Richard Burton to Lohan's Taylor, commented: "She's pretty much Liz Taylor reincarnated."
Liz & Dick will premiere on Lifetime.
