Lindsay Lohan has more in common with Elizabeth Taylor than a love of jewelry (though Liz was never accused of shoplifting)!

"Liz & Dick" is Lindsay’s first starring role in nearly five years -- but the part is much more than just a character to the 26-year-old.

In a behind-the-scenes video of the Lifetime flick, Lindsay opens up about relating to Taylor in many different ways -- especially the stress of living her under the media microscope.

"I relate to her on a lot of levels: Living in the public eye, dealing with the stress of what other people say, whether it’s true or not." She adds, "I personally understand Liz because you’re living your life for everyone else to see."

Grant Bowler, who plays Richard "Dick" Burton, says, “She’s pretty much Elizabeth Taylor reincarnated." Watch the clip below and tell us if you agree!
