Debbie Reynolds: Elizabeth Taylor suffered “a lot of pain” in her last days

Two weeks before her death, Elizabeth Taylor met with her one-time rival, Debbie Renynolds, star of Singin’ in the Rain.

Renynolds told Access Hollywood how the star was in a bad shape. “I said, ‘Getting old is really sh––,’ ” Reynolds said of her final conversation with Taylor. “And she said, ‘It certainly is. It certainly is, Debbie. This is really tough.’ ”

“I said, ‘Well, you just hang in there now, Elizabeth,’ ” Reynolds continues. “And she said, ‘I’m really trying.”

“God bless her, she’s on to a better place. I’m happy that she’s out of her pain because she was in a lot of pain,” says Reynolds,

“May God bless her, she is a better place. I’m glad she no longer suffers, because she has suffered enormously,” says Reynolds, who believes “She was a symbol of stardom. Her legacy will last.”

“Women liked her and men adored her, and her love for her children is enduring,” she added.

If they were friends now, it wasn’t always the case. In the ’50s, the two stars were the center of a big scandal. Debbie Reynolds was married to Eddie Fisher. Their union was worthy of the finest fairy tale. Until the day Debbie learned that her husband had an affair with her friend Elizabeth Taylor.

Debbie and Elizabeth had no contacts for seven years. One day, fate led them to dine together on Queen Mary. Debbie Harry was then remarried to Harry Karl, a wealthy shoe manufacturer.

“Liz was with Richard Burton and her whole family, all the children and the nannies. I sent a little note to her, saying: “Let’s get together to have dinner. It’s silly to carry on this fight now that we’ve both remarried and it’s all just sort of ridiculous, isn’t it?”

“It turned out she’d sent one to me at the same time, so they criss-crossed. We had dinner that night in the main dining room. Heads turned. Cameras were everywhere. People were hiding behind plants taking pictures,” she remembers.

The two remained close until Liz Taylor’s death.
