Kim Kardashian Talks Diet, Weight Gain In Harper's Bazaar (PHOTOS)

Kim Kardashian covers the March Harper's Bazaar, and inside she recreates Elizabeth Taylor's Cleopatra portrayal from the 1963 movie, interviews the screen legend about life and love, and as always talks about her body.

It's the second time Kim has posed for Harper's - last year she went nude and reportedly unretouched for the magazine. She has also posed nude for W magazine.

Here are a few excerpts from the interview; scroll down for photos and read more here.

On her diet:
"I'm on a diet. I need to be. I love to eat - Kit Kats or cookies-and-cream ice cream. I need sugar like five times a day."

On gaining weight while filming 'Kourtney & Kim Take New York':
"I worked out once. I gained like 10 pounds. All the papers were like, Kim's pregnant! I ate the nuts on the street corner, the hot dogs, the street meat. It was not a joke."

And a snippet from her interview with Elizabeth Taylor:

KIM KARDASHIAN: You are my idol. But I'm six husbands and some big jewels behind. What should I do?

ELIZABETH TAYLOR: I never planned to acquire a lot of jewels or a lot of husbands. For me, life happened, just as it does for anyone else. I have been supremely lucky in my life in that I have known great love, and of course I am the temporary custodian of some incredible and beautiful things. But I have never felt more alive than when I watched my children delight in something, never more alive than when I have watched a great artist perform, and never richer than when I have scored a big check to fight AIDS. Follow your passion, follow your heart, and the things you need will come.
