Lindsay Lohan is starring as Elizabeth Taylor in Lifetime's upcoming movie "Liz & Dick," which tells the story of Taylor and Richard Burton, and the starlet recently revealed that she looks to Taylor as something of a role model.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Lohan told reporters during a premiere dinner party for the movie at the Beverly Hills Hotel on Tuesday night that what drew her to the role was in part the fact that she and Taylor have had so many similar experiences.

“I think we have a lot of similarities, with growing up famous her whole life and living your life in the public eye...It’s hard, but there are certain people -- I look to her because she got through it.”

The film premieres on Lifetime on Sunday, Nov. 25, at 9:00 p.m.
