Fashionably late to your own funeral? Now that's a star.
New details about Elizabeth Taylor's private, multi-denominational memorial service were released today, among them word that the iconic screen legend had requested that the service begin at least 15 minutes later than publicly scheduled.
"She even wanted to be late for her own funeral," went the announcement. How's that for consummate style?
But that wasn't the only surprising revelation made this morning. Though it wasn't made immediately clear after yesterday's service who, if any, high profile mourners were in attendance, this morning it was confirmed that there was at least one star in attendance for the funeral, and it at least appears to be a bit of a head-scratcher: Colin Farrell.
And yes, the Irishman's rep confirms to E! News that it is the Colin Farrell.
And the actor wasn't just an attendee, but rather part of the one-hour service, as the star, described as a "close friend" of Taylor's, recited a poem by Gerard Manley Hopkins, "The Leaden Echo and the Golden Echo."
"How to keep—is there any any, is there none such, nowhere known some, bow or brooch or braid or brace, lace, latch or catch or key to keep back beauty, keep it, beauty, beauty, beauty…from vanishing away?" goes the poem.
"No there's none, there's none, o no there's none, nor can you long be, what you now are, called fair, do what you may do, what, do what you may."
It's unclear how the duo met, though it wasn't long ago that Taylor was publicly praising him, telling Kim Kardashian in her Harper's Bazaar interview earlier this year that he was one of the few current actor she would love to work with.
Meanwhile, in addition to Colin, Taylor's son, Michael Wilding, her grandson, Tarquin Wilding, and daughter, Liza Burton Tivey, also read out selections during the service at The Great Mausoleum at Forest Lawn cemetery, while her grandson, Rhys Tivey, performed "Amazing Grace" on the trumpet.
Her casket was closed and covered in gardenias, violets and lily of the valley.
"It's taken me a day 2really grasp the loss of such a beautiful soul who touched the hearts saved lives &inspired the world Goodbye 2a true queen," she tweeted.
