BREAKING NEWS: Film legend Elizabeth Taylor dies at 79

One of our icons, A true beauty and beautiful soul. A close friend to Michael Jackson.
Taylor was the most blessed and cursed of actresses, the toughest and the most vulnerable. She had extraordinary grace, wealth and voluptuous beauty, and won three Academy Awards, including a special one for her humanitarian work. She was the most loyal of friends and a defender of gays in Hollywood when AIDS was new to the industry and beyond. But she was afflicted by ill health, failed romances (eight marriages, seven husbands) and personal tragedy.

A rep for Taylor said the following; [Ms Taylor died] “peacefully today in Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles. Though she had recently suffered a number of complications, her condition had stabilized and it was hoped that she would be able to return home. Sadly, this was not to be.”

Taylor has a plot in Westwood Village Memorial Park Cemetery in L.A. where she’ll rest with fellow legends Marilyn Monroe, Walter Mathau, Farrah Fawcett & Dean Martin.

Remembering Elizabeth Taylor:

One of her most famous films was the 1963 epic "Cleopatra,"
one of the most expensive movies of all time when it was filmed.
She met her future husband Richard Burton on the set

Elizabeth Taylor is considered one of the last, if not the last major star, to have come out of the old Hollywood studio system. And not just any studio, the top of the heap: MGM. Her early movies, as a child in the early 1940s, starred such Hollywood luminaries as Orson Welles and Spencer Tracy. She quickly grew up, however, and by 1950 was, if not starring in, assuming major responsibilities for the success of motion pictures she appeared in. Then with major roles onscreen, came worldwide attention off-screen, most notably due to a succession of famous and/or rich husbands and a series of health crises throughout her life. To put it simply, Elizabeth Taylor has lived a life far more exciting and dramatic than any movie she's ever appeared in and probably most any other movie you could name.

She's known internationally for her beauty, especially for those violet eyes, with which she captured audiences early on in her youth and has kept the world hooked on ever since.

She's won the Oscar twice and she's earned her place in and out of the sun.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to her family at this time.
May she rest in peace
