Larry King On Elizabeth Taylor: ‘She Loved A Lot. I Guess I Know How That Feels.’
One of the many voices mourning the death of Elizabeth Taylor today is Larry King, a friend of the actress who hosted her on his show many times. A clearly saddened King called into CNN’s News Room and gave his thoughts on the loss in a touching tribute.
King explained that she was one of the first public figures to speak out about AIDS, saying she may have done more than any other individual to fight the disease (her AIDS charity, by the way, can be found here). He then went on to describe her personality.
“She was loyal to the core. She was a tremendous talent. She did have a lot of rough life. She loved a lot. I guess I know how that goes. But she went to her love. She was what she was. She had scandal. She had everything you could put into one life including a great, great sense of humor.”
King also claimed the producers of his old show had put together a tribute episode made up of her appearances. Hopefully it will air soon.
