Kim Kardashian to feature in documentary about Elizabeth Taylor

 January 31, 2024

Kim Kardashian is being accused of sullying the legacy of one of Hollywood's greatest stars. 

The Instagram diva will star in a new documentary about Elizabeth Taylor that Kardashian is producing for BBC, Britain's left-wing state broadcaster.

Kim Kardashian accused...

Kardashian has made no secret of her admiration for Taylor, famous for her sultry beauty and extravagant lifestyle.

The London-born star became the highest-paid actress in the world at the height of her career and went through seven divorces, four more than Kardashian - but the similarities are superficial as Taylor is a certified Hollywood legend, and Kardashian is famous because of a sex tape.

In a press release for Elizabeth Taylor: Rebel Superstar, Kardashian touted Taylor as her role model, calling the actor "unapologetically herself."

"Elizabeth Taylor was unapologetically herself, a fighter," Kardashian said in a statement.

"She is proof that you can keep evolving and changing and have different chapters in your life -- and she paved the way for all of us who came after her with that blueprint."

Documentary stirs outrage

The news of Kardashian's role in the documentary led to fears that she would portray Taylor, but that doesn't appear to be the case.

The series will instead feature an interview with Kardashian, the last person to interview the Cleopatra star before she died in 2011 at the age of 79.

The three-part documentary promises viewers new insights about Taylor from Kardashian and others "who knew her best," including fellow actor Dame Joan Collins, who competed with Taylor for the role of Cleopatra, and Dr. Anthony Fauci, who worked with Taylor on HIV/AIDS activism.

"The series will take a deep dive into Taylor's craft and technique as an actor -- one who mesmerized cinemagoers, but also changed the relationship between audiences and stars," the press release said.

"We'll see how she reinvented the nature of fame, even as she smashed the glass ceiling in Hollywood, before going on to become a billion-dollar businesswoman, activist and advocate."

Despite the concerns of critics, BBC promises the series will honor Taylor's legacy appropriately.

"This series gives Elizabeth Taylor the significance she richly deserves, in all her incarnations: as an actor, rebel, business mogul, and activist – to reveal how Taylor created the blueprint for modern celebrity," the press release said.
