<p id=”par-5_41″><em>Elizabeth Taylor: Rebel Superstar </em>is scheduled to go behind the scenes of her life as an actor. However, it will also touch on how Taylor changed the face of celebrity by using it to become a billion-dollar businesswoman, activist, and advocate.</p>

<p id=”par-6_37″>However, most movie fans know her more for her off-camera life, including eight marriages, her wealth of extravagant jewels,  and her nomination as Dame of the Realm in 2003. Her lust for life informed everything she did.</p>

<p id=”par-7_32″>The series will feature interviews with high-profile stars who knew Taylor personally. These include Kim Kardashian. The <a href=”https://www.cheatsheet.com/entertainment/kanye-wests-recent-marriage-bianca-censori-isnt-actually-legal.html/”>mother of four</a> conducted the last interview with Taylor before her death in March 2011.</p>

<p id=”par-8_48″>Some of the major Hollywood players who knew Taylor personally featured in the series include <em>Dynasty</em> star and friend Dame Joan Collins, <em>Little Women</em> star Margaret O’Brien, close friend Carole Bayer Sager, and Dr. Anthony Fauci, who worked alongside Elizabeth in the fight against AIDS in the 1980s.</p>

<p id=”par-9_30″>Each installment of the three-part series examines how Taylor broke down barriers in every part of her life. This bold life resulted in a heavy price paid for defying convention.</p>

<p id=”par-10_29″>Elizabeth Taylor sat down for her last interview, conducted by Kim Kardashian, and published in February 2011 for<a href=”https://www.harpersbazaar.com/celebrity/latest/news/a676/kim-kardashian-elizabeth-taylor-interview-0311/”> Harpers Bazaar</a>. The actor would die one month after its publication.</p>

<p id=”par-11_23″>Kardashian’s first question for Taylor was, “You are my idol. But I’m six husbands and some big jewels behind. What should I do?”</p>

<p id=”par-12_27″>Taylor’s response? “I never planned to acquire a lot of jewels or a lot of husbands. For me, life happened just as it does for anyone else.”</p>

<p id=”par-13_45″>The interview twisted through Taylor’s jewelry collection, her life as an actor, and her work as an activist. However, although her life was primarily in the spotlight, Taylor told Kardashian, “Sometimes I think we know too much about our idols, and that spoils the dream.”</p>

<p id=”par-14_27″>In 2011, Kardashian purchased several items from Elizabeth Taylor’s estate. She spent $64,900 for three jade and diamond bracelets that belonged to the screen legend, <a href=”https://www.forbes.com/sites/anthonydemarco/2011/12/14/kim-kardashian-buys-elizabeth-taylors-jewelry-designed-by-lorraine-schwartz-at-christies-auction/?sh=3427d33a3106″>Forbes</a> reports.</p>

<p id=”par-15_27″>Lorraine Schwartz, a friend of both Kardashian and Taylor, created the bangles. According to the report, Schwartz was at the auction and purchased the bracelets for Kardashian.</p>

<p id=”par-16_16″><em>Elizabeth Taylor: Rebel Superstar</em> is in production and will air on BBC Two and BBC iPlayer.</p>
