Lindsay Lohan 'too serious' for friends

Lindsay Lohan

Lindsay Lohan stayed in character when she was shooting Liz & Dick.

The troubled actress portrays Dame Elizabeth Taylor in the movie, which focuses on the late actress' romance with Richard Burton.

Lindsay went to great lengths to ensure she was believable in the role, revealing she refused to break character even when the cameras weren't rolling.

"My friends didn't come to my trailer a lot because I was Cleopatra and Virginia Woolf the entire time," she laughed during an appearance on Good Morning America today.

"I hope my love for acting really shows through. I did the best that I could and I hope Elizabeth is happy, watching from above."

Lindsay, 26, admits she was worried about portraying the screen legend. The star's legal and personal problems have garnered more headlines than her acting prowess over the last few years and she was concerned about that.

She has also always admired Elizabeth - who died aged 79 in March 2011 - and hopes people will think she did her justice.

"It's really nerve-wracking to play someone who is such an incredible force. I was nervous to see what people would think about it. You can never actually be a clone of the person so you have to bring some of yourself into it. I'm lucky because I do relate to Elizabeth Taylor in a lot of ways," she said.

Lindsay has spent time in rehab and been in trouble with the police over the last few years. She has now turned a corner and has told those around her that her career is of paramount importance at the moment.

"I keep calling my agents to say, 'Keep me on set!' It's safer that way," she explained.
