Lindsay Lohan has "disappointed" Barbara Walters by pulling out of their scheduled interview.

The Liz & Dick actress was due to chat to the ABC broadcaster about her latest movie but cancelled before agreeing to an interview with Jay Leno on The Tonight Show.

Walters is unhappy at being ditched.

Speaking on The View, she said: "[I was told] 'Lindsay doesn't feel up to it.' Well, I mean, she has a lot of problems, and it was just one more. I said, 'Poor girl, I hope when she feels like it, she will do it with us.'

"If they'd said to me 'You know, Barbara, she isn't up to the kinds of questions that you might ask' . . . I wouldn't feel quite as disappointed as I do today.

"As far as Jay goes, I love Jay. More power to him. I think I would have helped her. I think to go on Jay Leno and be adorable and amusing, there's still all the problems with her."

Walters revealed one of the reasons she is so upset is because she and Lohan, 26, have known each other for years and they had already completed part of the interview on the set of Liz & Dick.

She added: "I like Lindsay Lohan very much. I've known her for years, since she was a very little girl. She said whenever she did an interview, she would sit down and do it with me.

"Even then, the producers were a little worried about whether or not she would be able to finish the film. When I saw her, she was in very good shape. We were supposed do the major interview last week. . . We were very excited about it. I spent a lot of time, doing a lot of homework, watching the actual movie. . . and then her longtime press agent resigned. That should have been a clue."
