Elizabeth Taylor Was Late to Her Own Funeral

Elizabeth Taylor's funeral took place on Thursday afternoon at the Forest Lawn Memorial Parks & Mortuaries in Glendale, California—and as per her very special request, it started late. A statement from her rep Sally Morrison said:

The service was scheduled to begin at 2 PM but at Miss Taylor’s request started late. Miss Taylor had left instructions that it was to begin at least 15 minutes later than publicly scheduled, with the announcement, ‘She even wanted to be late for her own funeral,’

What a way to make a lasting impression.
