What sad news
She was a brilliant actress
Her love affair with Richard Burton would make a wonderful film if it was played out true. The two could not live with or without each other. That said she did live long after he died...
The Gay community has also lost a strong ally today. She did some good work for so many charities.
Debbie Reynolds lost her husband to Ms Taylor's charms but even she is quite magnaminous in talking of her... ""She had a long, productive career," says Reynolds. "She was the most glamorous and sensuous star of our generation. No one could equal Elizabeth's beauty and sexuality. Women liked her and men adored her — my husband included — and her love for her children is enduring. She was a symbol of stardom. Her legacy will last…. I just talked to her two weeks ago. We just chatted. I said, 'Getting old is not easy, is it? Being ill is very difficult.' We talked a little bit about being sick and she said how hard it was and that she was pleased I called. We reminisced a little bit. She was very sick, and I'm pleased that she can be out of her pain now…. People always assume you're going to carry a grudge, but I don't do that. We passed through that with time."
