Lindsay Lohan will appear on "The Tonight Show" with Jay Leno on Tuesday night to promote her first starring role in years.

Lohan plays the late Elizabeth Taylor in the upcoming Lifetime movie "Liz & Dick," which chronicles Taylor's long and tumultuous romantic involvement with actor Richard Burton. The film premieres on Lifetime on Sunday, Nov. 25.

The interview on "The Tonight Show" came together after a lot of controversy.

Lohan was originally scheduled to sit down for an exclusive, in-depth interview with Barbara Walters that would air on ABC's "20/20." Walters had even flown out to the set of "Liz & Dick" along with a camera crew to get footage of Lohan on set and tape an early bit of the interview.

But then Lohan's former publicist dropped her as a client and she took on new representation from a high-powered Hollywood public relations firm. When her new handlers heard from Walters' producers that the veteran journalist wanted to probe Lohan's personal life - including allegations that she lied to police about a car accident over the summer - they decided the interview wasn't right for the 26-year-old actress, and she cancelled the interview.

Walters remarked on the situation during a recent episode of "The View."

"I have a few things to say about Lindsay Lohan," Walters began. "I like Lindsay Lohan very much. I've known her for years, since when she was a child star [and] very vulnerable. And she said when she would do an interview, she would sit down and do it with me."

Walters said she put much time and effort into preparing for the interview before Lohan pulled out. Walters did extensive research on Lohan, watched the "Liz & Dick" film in its entirety and devised a long set of questions for the 26-year-old actress.

Then she got word from Lohan's new public relations team that the interview was off.

"Why is it cancelled?" Walters said on "The View." "Lindsay doesn't feel up to it. Well, I mean, she has a lot of problems and it was just one more, and I said poor girl, I hope when she feels like it she'll do it."

Then came the bad news.

"The punch line: Lindsay Lohan is sitting for an interview with Jay Leno," Walters said.

Despite the fact that Lohan reneged on her commitment, Walters closed the segment by saying she was happy for her colleague Leno, and she sent well wishes to Lohan.

"I wish Lindsay the best. We would have done a wonderful interview. I hope she feels well," Walters said.

Lohan will appear on "The Tonight Show" with Jay Leno on Tuesday on NBC.
