Though they spent many years as Hollywood rivals, Elizabeth Taylor and Debbie Reynolds were friends at the time of Taylor's death Wednesday. In fact, Reynolds spoke to Taylor just two weeks ago and shared some of their conversation with Access Hollywood Live on Wednesday.

"I said, 'Getting old is really sh––,' " Reynolds told the television show of her final conversation with Taylor. "And she said, 'It certainly is. It certainly is, Debbie. This is really tough.'"

"I said, 'Well, you just hang in there now, Elizabeth,' " Reynolds said. "And she said, 'I'm really trying. I'm really trying."

"God bless her, she's on to a better place," Reynolds recalled. "I'm happy that she's out of her pain because she was in a lot of pain."

Reynolds also shared her thoughts on the screen legend on the 'The Joy Behar Show.' "She was the most glamorous and sexual star of our generation," Reynolds, 78, told the host. "No could equal Elizabeth's beauty... Women liked her and men adored her, I know because my husband left for her."
