Elizabeth Taylor's 'Cleopatra' dressing room trailer vandalized


Screen legend Elizabeth Taylor's dressing room trailer from the set of "Cleopatra" has been vandalized.

Taylor fan Angel Alger purchased the trailer for $50,000 at an auction in June and loaned it out to TV bosses shooting Lindsay Lohan's new Lifetime movie, "Liz & Dick."

But when the pink luxury trailer was returned to Alger last month, it was severely damaged, with cigarette burns on the fabric and shards of glass thrown about from broken mirrors and dishes, according to photos obtained by CNN.

An antique rocking chair used by the actress was also missing, as well as several of Taylor's other personal belongings.

Alger says, "I was specifically told that it would come back in pristine condition and in even better condition than it was at that time.

"I did not get to enjoy using the lavish French phone that she used or even her personal hair brush that probably still had some of her hair in it. Only a psychotic and rebellious person or people would steal irreplaceable museum belongings and leave it in this vandalized condition."

Lohan's publicist, Steve Honig, has assured Alger the 26-year-old actress is not to blame, adding, "This has nothing to do with Lindsay."

The cost of damages is estimated to be upwards of $100,000.

This movie should never have been made. It was cursed the day they announced that Lohan was going to star as Elizabeth Taylor. I will not watch it and hopefully no one else will either.

If a person didn't have to pay for it they have no idea of its value. She is so use to the studios (the Director, producer) "Handling" everything she probably had no idea what she was loaned, To her its just another trailer let the producer pay for the damages she didn't agree to anything concerning that trailer.

More and more people have this attitude and have no respect for another's property.  I think the producers should fine her for the damages and missing items (if the stuff was broken or stolen while in her care she should be held accountable for it.)

Why is ugly Lohan playing Liz Taylor and why does the media reward these idiots for their bad behavior? Do us all a favor start ignoring them so that they will go away so that we can be entertained by people who can actually act.
