ELIZABETH TAYLOR’S LAST INTERVIEW: JEWELS, MEN…& TWITTER
After a lifetime in the public eye, ELIZABETH TAYLOR gave a last interview that, as it turned out, was – appropriately enough – pure ELIZABETH TAYLOR.
When the Hollywood icon talked with KIM KARDASHIAN for a HARPER’S BAZAAR feature that ran in February, it was stunningly obvious that the Hollywood legend still had a mind for all things fabulous.
“I never planned to acquire a lot of jewels or a lot of husbands,” she said in the interview.
“For me, life happened, just as it does for anyone else. I have been supremely lucky in my life in that I have known great love and of course…some incredible and beautiful things.”
Ms. Taylor also showed that she was keeping up with contemporary times. She joined Twitter – and even honoured KIM with a follow.
“I like the connection with fans and people who have been supportive of me,” Ms. Taylor remarked.
“And I love the idea of real feedback and a two way street, which is very very modern.”
Ms. Taylor’s last Tweet was a link to the interview and a compliment for KIM concerning her CLEOPATRA themed photo spread in the same issue.
After Ms. Taylor passed away on Wednesday at age 79, KIM took to her blog to describe the interview as “one of the greatest highlights of my entire life.”
“Not only did I get to wear Dame Elizabeth’s original clothing from the movie, but I got to interview her for this piece! I never felt so lucky and fortunate; it was truly the greatest honour and dream of mine to be the iconic Elizabeth Taylor for one day.”
