Liz & Dick has only been shooting for a few days, but I’m sure you’ve already overdosed on every tiny little detail and pictures from that shit. Try to take in one more post, because this quote is just too perfect, too hilarious and TOO much. Salvador Pérez, Liz & Dick’s costume designer, talked to People about transforming an L.A. County Jail legend into a Hollywood legend. Make sure there’s a soft mat on the floor below you, because you will fall out of your chair after reading Salvador’s reaction to seeing LiLo as La Liz for the first time:
“There was an audible gasp. You’d swear it was Elizabeth. She just walked into the clothes and became Elizabeth Taylor.”
I’m sure that audible gasp sounded a lot like the audible gasp you’d make while watching a runaway train careen toward you in slow motion. It was a “….the fuck did I get myself into?” kind of gasp. But I love Salvador for that. I laughed so hard that tears welled up in my eyes and temporarily blurred my version. And you know, in that blurry moment, that picture of LiLo sort of did look like Elizabeth Taylor!
Oh, and Salvador also said that LiLo’s waist is 23 inches. Oh, that Salvador. Bitch just wants us to laugh until piss shoots out of our eye holes. And here’s a few more pictures from yesterday’s shoot. Either the whole thing takes place on a boat or Lifetime got their Hollywood legends mixed up and they’re really making a Natalie Wood biopic instead.
