Sad news today as iconic and legendary actress Dame Elizabeth Taylor passes away at the age of 79.
Liz, whose leaves behind a legacy that was highlighted by two Oscars and the title of Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire, died today at LA’s Cedars-Sinai Hospital reportedly of congestive heart failure.
The Hollywood actress, who was born in Hampstead, London, was the star of the classic films “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof” and “Cleopatra”…
…she also enjoyed a rather dramatic love life having been famously wed eight times to seven men including Conrad Hilton, Jr. and her “Cleopatra” co-star Richard Burton.
Elizabeth Taylor is speaking out about Michael Jackson’s death…this is what the icon had to say about the King of Pop’s passing:
It can’t be so. He will live in my heart forever but it’s not enough. My life feels so empty. I was packing up my clothes to go to London for his opening when I heard the news. I still can’t believe it. I don’t want to believe it. We had so much in common and we had such loving fun together. My heart…my mind…are broken. I loved Michael with all my soul and I can’t imagine life without him.
Elizabeth Taylor is an amazing person, and I feel for her loss.
