After a lifetime in the public eye, Elizabeth Taylor gave a last interview
that, 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, the soon-to-be hospitalized Taylor 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."
Taylor also showed that she was keeping up with contemporary times. She joined Twitter – and even honored Kardashian with a follow.
"I like the connection with fans and people who have been supportive of me," Taylor said. "And I love the idea of real feedback and a two-way street, which is very, very modern."
Taylor's final Tweet
was a link to the interview and a compliment for Kardashian for her Cleopatra
-themed photo spread.
After Taylor died
on Wednesday at age 79, Kardashian starlet 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!" she wrote
. "I never felt so lucky and fortunate; it was truly the greatest honor and dream of mine to be the iconic 'Elizabeth Taylor' for one day."
