Even though “Liz & Dick” has only been shooting since Monday, there are already quite a few paparazzi photos from the set that give, perhaps, a more honest look. (You may or may not know this, but Lohan is something of a paparazzi darling.)

Here, for example, is Lindsay Lohan as Taylor in a bathing suit looking like . . . Lindsay Lohan in a bathing suit with brown hair. And here she is wearing a hat and holding a purse while standing next to Bowler. Is this how Elizabeth Taylor held her purse? Hard to say.

And there’s going to be months of this stuff to analyze! But thankfully, not too many months: “Liz & Dick” is slated for release in November.

What do you think of the photo? Does it change your position on Lohan as Taylor? Strengthen your resolve against it? Talk to us in the comments.
