Kim Kardashian tries to be just like ‘idol’ Elizabeth Taylor on Instagram

By Daniel S Levine,

Kim Kardashian is an admitted fan of Elizabeth Taylor and reminded the world how much she loves the late Oscar-winning actress with a new Instagram picture.

In the photo, the reality star poses with another picture of Taylor in the background.Kardashian has a matching towel on her head and, just like Taylor, is showing off a huge diamond ring. “#MyIdol,” Kardashian captioned the photo, which now has 456,000 likes.

Kardashian did get to meet Taylor before Taylor’s death in March 2011 at age 79. As E! News notes, Kardashian interviewed her for Harper’s Bazaar just a month before her death.

Kardashian, 33, asked Taylor for advice on “how to be a queen,” but Taylor said she would never have wanted to be one, even though she did play Cleopatra once.

“Cleopatra was a role, and I am an actor, so it was fun to play one, but it's not real,” Taylor told Kardashian. “The real Cleopatra had an incredibly complicated life, and she had to be very, very canny to survive as long as she did. For me, the most interesting thing about her was her passion. The things that are important to me—being a mother, a businesswoman, an activist—are all things that were borne out of great passion.”

Taylor and Kardashian also shared a love of diamonds and Kardashian reportedly spent $65,000 on several pieces from Taylor’s collection when it was auctioned off in December 2011.

However, Kardashian won’t be able to get a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame like Taylor has, unless she starts making movies and records a hit song.
