Colin Farrell's Unique Relationship With Elizabeth Taylor

Colin Farrell Talks About Elizabeth

One of the more heartwarming stories to come from Elizabeth Taylor's sad passing is the one of the relationship between her and Colin Farrell.

While we don't think it was anything naughty in nature, the two became extremely close friends over the past year and a half, earning him a spot at her funeral and a reading of poems chosen by her.

Here's what the actor has said about Elizabeth:

"I was just lucky enough to become her friend in the last year and a half . I adore her…still. How did we become friends? You know, the old story of boy meets girl, and boy pesters girl with too many phone calls at inappropriate hours of the night."

Actually, that DOES sound a little romantically charged, but yet we still feel like it was just a close friendship.

On the poem:

"Elizabeth chose it. It was a tricky poem as well. Even in passing she had me under the thumb, sweating bricks."

Despite only knowing her for a year and a half, Colin, we can see how much she meant to you, and we are very sorry for you loss. We adored her in our own way, too, and we're glad that you could be there for her so close to the end.

That's very sweet of you, considering your bad boy status!

We're sure Elizabeth loved your readings!

    Don't speak about a legend as though you know her Mario - it's rude.

    Whoa, Perez. don't even try to marginalize Colin with that "bad boy staus" B.S. Colin is a beautiful person. He left his bad boy ways behind him several years ago. He's a wonderful father to his sons,he's drug and alcohol free and has been for several years, and he has the kindest most generous heart! I've enjoyed him on Charlie Rose and so many other talk shows. He is a brilliant story teller, too, and has a sweet sense of humor always at his own expense. I can see why Elizabeth was drawn to him. I love him. Too bad all you can focus on is his mistakes. Isn't there a statute of limitations, or will you always define him by his shortcomings!

    I think it is sweet. We don't need or deserve to know anymore than that.

    He always looks like he smells.

    All women are drawn to "bad boys"… that's not a shortcoming, that's a whole lot of IRRESISTABLE T-R-O-U-B-L-E and fun to play with for awhile.

    It's nice to have a 'man' around like him.
    Liz would have liked that. Good for her.

    Becoming invisible, as we age, is a challenge, especially when known for being gorgeous.

    Aw bless his heart. No doubt an amazing woman as Elizabeth was, she must've left deep impressions on those who got to know her personally. She will be missed.

    I told you he had a list….and a mission.

    he says they became friends a little over a year and a half ago…..that's when Michael Jackson died. He must have felt badly for her knowing she and Michael were so tight..(I know I felt for her at the time)..He must have known she would need a good friend. sweet story
