While appearing on the Today show on Tuesday, O'Donnell insisted she didn't believe Lohan was right for the part. "No, because she's had a lot of trouble doing every single movie, including [Saturday Night Live]," she said. "She was out and not at rehearsal and I think she's not in a place to work... I feel very sorry for her. I think she needs a lot of help. She needs a lot of time away."
When fellow panelist Donny Deutsch commented that Lohan is "this generation's Elizabeth Taylor," O'Donnell was quick to dispute that. "You're out of your mind," she said. "The last thing she did good, she was 16."
"I don't think she's right for the role, and I don't think she's capable at this point of doing what's needed to portray that character," she said. "I think the interest level in her has waned significantly."
