Lady Gaga has spoken out in defense of friend Lindsay Lohan after Lindsay received a hammering from critics for her portrayal of the iconic Elizabeth Taylor in the new film Liz & Dick. The troubled actress’ performance, according to David Wiegand of the San Francisco Chronicle, was less than impressive. “The performances range from barely adequate to terrible. That would be (costar) Bowler in the ‘barely adequate’ slot and Lohan, well, in the other one,” he wrote. The overwhelming majority of reviewers shared similar views. Meanwhile, Gaga took to her Twitter page, writing: “You did a beautiful job on 'Liz & Dick', Let no one bring u down, Liz didnt, they always try to knock the greats down a few pegs (sic)". Okay, Gaga, we understand that you’re friends, but when critics are saying that this movie could ruin Lindsay’s acting career, it probably wasn’t too Oscar-worthy.
