Lindsay Lohan has channeled Elizabeth Taylor before – but never like this.

The young star, 25, was snapped Monday wearing a leopard print, one-piece bathing suit, glamorous sunglasses and long dark locks while filming the Lifetime Original movie about the life of the late Hollywood legend.

The movie, Liz & Dick, also stars True Blood actor Grant Bowler as Taylor's husband, Richard Burton. The film focuses on the couple's tumultuous relationship.

"I have always admired and had enormous respect for Elizabeth Taylor," Lohan said after being cast in the role. "She was not only an incredible actress but an amazing woman as well."
