Lindsay Lohan was also a hot mess over the Labor Day Weekend. Seemingly responding to criticism upon the release of stills from the Liz & Dick biopic co-starring Grant Bowler, Lohan posted to Twitter that haters gon’ hate because Elizabeth Taylor herself would have watched Lifetime’s reductive movie-of-the-week: “At least i know that i have done the work for an angel in heaven, @DameElizabeth,” Lohan tweeted. “I know that she will see it from up above.. bless her.”
Demonstrating the love and respect she had for Taylor, Lohan allegedly trashed the Cleopatra trailer and allegedly stole several of its antiques. Because of course.
Elizabeth Taylor’s Cleopatra “love nest,” where her romance with Richard Burton started, was trashed while it was on loan for filming of Lindsay Lohan’s Liz & Dick, the owner of the dressing room trailer said.
Fox Studios spent more than $75,000 in 1963, about a half million in today’s dollars, to create an environment fit for the queen Taylor was playing. [Taylor] rested away from the set between roman columns with walls and ceilings handpainted in the style of Cleopatra’s era.
Angel Alger, a Taylor fan, bought the pink, lavishly-decorated 38-foot travel trailer for $50,000, her life savings, in June. But she only had two days to enjoy it before it was delivered to Silver Screen Pictures. It was a condition of the sale since the seller had contracted to rent it to the producers for a week of filming.
“I was specifically told that it would come back in pristine condition and in even better condition than it was at that time,” Alger said.
When she saw it again in July, she was devastated to see damage she estimated to be at least $100,000.
Photos show cigarette burns on fabric, furniture and even a portrait of Taylor. Dishes, mirror and glass were broken.
What’s worse is what’s missing, Alger said. An antique European rocking chair that Taylor sat in after filming every night was taken.
“I did not get to enjoy using the lavish French phone that she used or even her personal hair brush that probably still had some of her hair in it,” Alger said.
Who trashed Taylor’s trailer? “Only a psychotic and rebellious person or people would steal irreplaceable museum belongings and leave it in this vandalized condition,” Alger said. - via CNN, The Superficial.
