Elizabeth Taylor's granddaughter, Naomi deLuce Wilding, opened up about her grandmother in a recent interview with Glamour Magazine. On April 11, ABC News reported that Wilding was inspired by her grandmother in many ways. While the rest of the world looked at the actress as a beautiful woman with style and grace, having her as a relative was really something else.

"Living with my grandmother was like living with an auntie. Most grandmothers would say, 'You can’t leave the house wearing that!' Mine would see my bra strap showing, and say, 'Just take your bra off,'" Wilding said of her iconic grandmother.

Elizabeth Taylor's granddaughter has very fond memories of her grandmother -- as many people often do. Wilding says that her grandmother wasn't a famous actress in her eyes and she didn't associate her with being the Liz Taylor that the public knew. Her grandmother was a classy, loving lady who taught her so much -- and that relationship was very special to her.

"If you were a woman in Elizabeth Taylor’s life, she’d likely dress you up. She knew she was lucky to have the things she had, and a big part of how she enjoyed them was by sharing them," Wilding explained. "A lot of people hold their heart too close; she believed in giving it out. I think she went into every one of her marriages hoping it’d last, but the circumstances of her life were extreme," Wilding added.

Elizabeth Taylor's granddaughter knows that she had a special bond with her grandmother. Knowing such an amazing woman on such a level is quite different and many loved reading Wilding's interview about the special bond that she shared with a woman who wowed the rest of the world with her glamorous lifestyle and her talent.
