Elizabeth Taylor, who has died at the age of 79, was your typical Hollywood movie queen. Elizabeth was an English-American actress. A former child star, Elizabeth was known around the world for many reasons, none more so than her beauty, tempestuous Hollywood lifestyle and no less than eight stormy romances and marriages as well as her Oscar-winning performances.

Elizabeth starred in many movies that are now classics including: “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof“, with Paul Newman, “Giant” with Rock Hudson and James Dean, “Suddenly Last Summer” with Katharine Hepburn and Montgomery Clift.

Elizabeth Taylor won two Academy Awards both for Best Actress in a career spanning over 5 decades. Elizabeth received an Academy Award for the 1966 classic “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?“. This was one of many films where she played opposite her two-times husband Richard Burton. The other Academy Award was for Best Actress in ‘Butterfield 8′ - a movie Elizabeth reportedly hated.

One of Elizabeth Taylor’s most recognized movie roles was in ‘Cleopatra’ - even though the movie actually flopped. The off screen sizzle was enough to make it memorable with her love affair to then already married Richard Burton.elizabeth Taylor Cleopatra - movie flop but romance setter with Richard Burton, Dating Symbol blog

Elizabeth was considered one of the great actresses of Hollywood’s golden age.

Elizabeth was plagued by health problems throughout her life including congestive heart failure, pneumonia, having to endure 3 hip replacements, brain tumors and alcoholism.

Despite all the on screen and off screen furores in Elizabeth’s life, she was a stalwart for helping others and was a long time friend to Michael Jackson,. She continued to raise funds to battle AIDS/HIV even after retiring from the public gaze.

In 1999, Elizabeth was appointed Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire

Elizabeth Taylor was admitted to hospital in early February 2011 for “symptoms caused by congestive heart failure,” an ongoing condition, said her publicist Sally Morrison. She died on March 23, 2011 at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, California at the age of 79.

Hollywood has lost another of its true icons.
