Barbara Walters confirms Lindsay Lohan interview tied to 'Liz & Dick'

barbara-walters-lindsay-lohan-2020-gi.jpg Lindsay Lohan will indeed speak with Barbara Walters in a "20/20" interview scheduled for Friday, Nov. 16.

The interview is tied to the premiere of Lohan's Lifetime movie "Liz & Dick," in which she plays Elizabeth Taylor, but it's likely Walters will touch on Lohan's personal life as well -- there's certainly a lot of ground to cover.

News of the interview booking broke over the weekend, and Walters confirmed it and announced the date Monday (Oct. 15) on "The View."

"Lindsay greatly admires and trusts Barbara and is looking forward to talking with her," Lohan's rep says in a statement.

The interview will be Lohan's first televised sit-down since March, when she spoke with "Today" host Matt Lauer. It's also likely to give "20/20" a ratings bump during November sweeps.
