Elizabeth Taylor Was Late to Her Own Funeral

Elizabeth Taylor ensured a grand entrance at her funeral on Thursday by leaving instructions for the service to begin 15 minutes late. Gotta love her sense of humor!

Her publicist explained: "The service was scheduled to begin at 2 pm but at Miss Taylor's request started late. Miss Taylor had left instructions that it was to begin at least 15 minutes later than publicly scheduled, with the announcement, 'She even wanted to be late for her own funeral.'"

Elizabeth was laid to rest at Forest Lawn in Glendale on Thursday close to the late Michael Jackson. The one-hour service was officiated by Rabbi Jerry Cutler and included a reading by Colin Farrell (yes that Colin), apparently they were close friends.

Her $11,000 casket was covered with gardenias, violets and lily of the valley.

A public service in her honor is expected to he held at a later date. May you rest in peace Liz, you won't be forgotten.
