Lindsay Lohan speaks of ‘connection’ to Liz Taylor

Bisexual American actress and pop star Lindsay Lohan ‘treasures’ a ring she was sent by gay icon Dame Elizabeth Taylor.

The troubled star – who will portray the iconic actress in new TV movie 'Liz and Dick' – was given the piece of costume jewelry with a motivational letter from the screen legend before she died and is delighted to have a ‘connection’ to her.

She said: ‘I treasure it. It came with this beautiful note handwritten by Elizabeth Taylor, which was very encouraging about my work – and that work is something I should concentrate on.

‘It's a costume ring. It has cognac-colored stone with precious stones set around it. After I was sent it, I put the ring and the letter in a safe place so I wouldn't lose it.

‘But I took them out recently when I was asked to portray her. It's a tiny connection to her.’

Earlier this week, Lindsay was praised by Judge Stephanie Sautner for her efforts in court-ordered community service – part of her sentence for breaching probation – and with the punishment scheduled to come to an end next month, the 25-year-old star is looking forward to getting back to work and has promised to be more disciplined than ever.

She told the Daily Mail newspaper: ‘I'm happy about what happened [in court this week]. I realize how important it is not to muck this up. This is my chance to get on with my life.

‘I like the structure [of being on a film set]. You have to be there in the morning so that means you can't go out the night before.

‘I've learnt a lot of lessons and that's one of them.’
