Lindsay Lohan's Elizabeth Taylor biopic is set to premiere on Lifetime in November, and the network is hyping up the film with a new video featuring footage from the movie and interview with Lohan and co-star Grant Bowler.
Lohan says in the video that she feels a connection with Taylor on many levels, and that made it easier for her to play this part - her first starring role in five years.

"I'm a huge Elizabeth Taylor fan, and I relate to her on a lot of levels - living in the public eye, dealing with the stress of what other people say, whether it's true or not," Lohan said.
The 26-year-old actress said she feels she has shared some life experiences with Taylor, who died at age 79 in March of last year.
"I personally understand Liz, because you're living your life for everyone to see, and people are growing with you," Lohan said. "You get to a point where you become numb to it, and you just live your life the that way you feel you need to live it."
Her co-star Bowler, who plays Taylor's longtime love Richard Burton, agreed that the similarities between the two actresses are easy to spot.
"She's pretty much Elizabeth Taylor reincarnated," Bowler said.
The video is the latest in a string of promotional material from Lifetime leading up to the November premiere of "Liz and Dick." The network released three stills from the film at the end of last month, and a short teaser trailer debuted online last week.
"Liz and Dick" is being promoted as a high-profile comeback for Lohan after a long string of legal and personal troubles. Her $300,000 fee to play Taylor will contribute to her expected $2 million in earnings this year, but she was recently back to her old ways after being arrested amid a car accident at a New York City hotel.
