Kim Kardashian: Harper's Bazaar, March 2011. Interview with Elizabeth Taylor

Photographed by Terry Richardson for the March 2011 edition of US Harper's Bazaar, Kim Kardashian scores yet another magazine cover.

Not only is she in Cleopatra-inspired get-up, she gets to interview her idol, the original Cleopatra: the one and only Elizabeth Taylor.

Here is an excerpt from the interview.

KIM KARDASHIAN: You are my idol. But I'm six husbands and some big jewels behind. What should I do?

ELIZABETH TAYLOR: 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. I have been supremely lucky in my life in that I have known great love, and of course I am the temporary custodian of some incredible and beautiful things. But I have never felt more alive than when I watched my children delight in something, never more alive than when I have watched a great artist perform, and never richer than when I have scored a big check to fight AIDS. Follow your passion, follow your heart, and the things you need will come.

KK: For this story, we were inspired by Cleopatra. What's your advice on how to be a queen?

ET: I have never wanted to be a queen! Cleopatra was a role, and I am an actor, so it was fun to play one, but it's not real. 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.
