Liz and Colin: what really happened?

It's been less than a week since Liz Taylor died, but already rumours are swirling about the actress's legendary sex appeal, and it transpires that the star became very close to Colin Farrell, even asking the young Hollywood buck to read a poem at her funeral.

Farrell told The Daily Mail that he admired the star, 'I was just lucky enough to become her friend in the last year and a half. I adore her...still. How did we become friends? You know, the old story of boy meets girl, and boy pesters girl with too many phone calls at inappropriate hours of the night.’ Liz made no secret of her admiration of Colin, telling Kim Kardashion (of all people), 'I love Johnny Depp, and I love Colin Farrell – both brilliant, nuanced actors with great range.'

Not that we wish to stir the pot, but Farrell has previous history of romatic entanglements with OAPs. Dame Eileen Atkins, a thesp of the vintage variety told the following story, 'I was doing a movie and three weeks before my 70th birthday, a simply stunningly gorgeous big film star aged 28 years old, came into my hotel room for sex without strings. It was pure bliss and it made me sail through my 70th birthday without a care in the world.' Her agent confirmed the star was none other than our Colin.
