Larry King on Elizabeth Taylor: "She was a great interview because she gave you what you wanted"

Larry King was back on the 9pm slot on CNN, as a guest on "Piers Morgan Tonight" paying tribute to Elizabeth Taylor. "You would have loved her, Piers," he told Piers Morgan. "She was a great interview because she gave you what you wanted."

As for her beauty: "You've never seen eyes like Elizabeth Taylor's...She had a face, it went right through you. She had that. She had a magnificent presence."

    Excuse me with the pompous statement that the last of an era is gone... Lauren Bacall is still alive and kicking!

      Aw, c'mon............Lauren Bacall was a good actress,,,,,,,,but hardly famous in any role I can think of...her leading men were the stars of the movies so she had her 'fame' by defaut. I do like her as an actress but no, she's not of the stamina and calibre of Eizabeth Taylor.

        strange, internationally only CNN so I atllaucy watch Alzareer or RT (Russia Today) to get news from other perspectives as CNN is really uninformative and gets stuck on non issues. Think only good reporter is Blitzer and worst is Obrien who should be fired.

      Your blog was very interesting. As soonmee who keep pushing myself to the physical limits, I took a conscious decision last year to LISTEN to my own body and respond appropriately when I needed rest, when I am in pain from overworking (gardening, exercising etc) and not to just ignore the pain. The result was that I injured myself less, with fewer visits to the physio to heal the injuries.

    What about Lauren Bacall? She must feel pretty insulted by all the 'end of an era' comments.

      Now you're talking. What was not to love about Doris Day and her many,many movies that made us laugh and/or cry. My family laugh at me because I still watch her movies. Happy days!

    I am so sad since I wanted to meet her before she passed. We were supposed to have lunch at Camp Pendleton, but it was postponed. I am so honored to be a fellow Living Legacy honoree at the Women's International Center, alongside such greatness. She is an icon, a leader, a first, unforgettable, fiercely loyal, and dedicated. We will miss her always. Thanks for your coverage tonight Piers, great mix of friends, family and fans. – Mary Alice Hill

    yes, it's true-there are many actors and actresses from golden era of holywood still alive (luise rainer, olivia de havilland, joan fontaine, ernest borgnine), but it's obvious that none of them achieved the level of stardom and popularity that elizabeth has! so yes, elizabeth's death was an end of an era in same way!

    Great tributes to Liz Taylor, except for the "jerk" Dick Cavett who just had to say under his breath "when the jerks were in charge" referring to the Bush Administration. My gosh, why did he have to go there?
