Lindsay Lohan has hinted that she is hoping to play The Little Mermaid’s Ariel on the big screen – but fans aren’t all that keen to see it happen.
The flame-haired actress tweeted side-by-side images of herself and the character, a fellow redhead.
She added the hashtag “#thelittlemermaid”, suggesting she is hoping to play Ariel in the planned live-action version of The Little Mermaid.
But it seems viewers are hoping to see someone other than Li-Lo, 30, as Ariel.

Lindsay Lohan wants to play Ariel sometime... please no. I hope to never see her perform again.— J O E Y (@_lifewithjoe) February 20, 2017
Lindsay Lohan would've been a perfect choice 10 years ago. I'm not being age-ist, but the character of Ariel is a teenager.— Joe Wakefield (@SpookyJoeW) February 20, 2017
