Li-Lo - who vamped it up on the red carpet at the film's LA premiere last night - says that despite receiving a ring and a handwritten letter from the late actress she will always regret turning down her dinner invite.

"My entertainment lawyer, he knows the nurse that was with her for about seven/eight years," she told Leno. "So I became good friends with her and she was on set most of the days I was working and she actually gave me one of Elizabeth's furs, which was nice of her.
