Lindsay Lohan appeared on Good Morning America today to talk about her role in Liz & Dick -- and while Amy Robach certainly covered the film, discussing the actresses' on-going legal woes was clearly her priority.

Especially since news broke yesterday that Michael Lohan discovered her fathered a child, now 17-years-old. Upon broaching the subject, Lohan, 26, exclaimed, "I didn't even hear that, so thanks for the news!" Clearly like her mother, Lindsay Lohan does her best to avoid the headlines despite constantly making them.

But she sees Liz & Dick as a professional redemption, of sorts. "I hope my love for acting really shows through," she said. "I did the best that I could and I hope Elizabeth [Taylor] is happy, watching from above."

In fact, the presence of Taylor loomed large in Lohan's mind throughout the production. "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."

Not only that, but Lohan admits she stayed in character even when she wasn't filming! "My friends didn't come to my trailer a lot because I was Cleopatra and Virginia Woolf the entire time."

Looking ahead, Lohan just wants to keep working. "I keep calling my agents to say, 'Keep me on set!' It's safer that way."

Liz & Dick premieres on Lifetime November 25 at 9 p.m.
