Lindsay Lohan

After five years and no starring roles, Lindsay Lohan’s management decided that the best way to orchestrate the fallen star’s return to grace would be by making her a “serious” actress – because you know she can’t live off those Mean Girls royalties forever. So she landed the part of Elizabeth Taylor in the highly anticipated biopic Liz & Dick – and bombed.

In fact, LiLo did so poorly that critics had a field day going in on how much of a fail the whole shebang was. The Chicago Tribune said, “Let’s not pretend it ever had a shot at being decent. Lindsay Lohan as Oscar-winning screen legend Elizabeth Taylor told us right up front that the filmmakers were more interested in trashy publicity than quality.” Probably true, but still ouch.
