Elizabeth Taylor: 1932-2011

Summary

American movie icon Elizabeth Taylor, the Oscar-winning actress whose life was also a prototype for modern celebrity, died March 23 in Los Angeles of congestive heart failure. She was 79. Taylor graduated from teenage stardom to become one of the most popular movie stars of the 1950s and 1960s, while her personal life would become a target for what we now call the paparazzi. She was also an activist for AIDS research and acceptance of people with HIV/AIDS, raising millions of dollars for research through the Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation. Back to Article

Dame Elizabeth Taylor is truly an iconic legend and I'm gonna miss her. I heard it today at school and she will be missed.

Rest In Peace Ms. Taylor. Great Actress and great person. She was a great humanitarian. She'll always be a hero of mine for what she did stepping up for AIDS research at the time. Extremely honorable of her. A great humanitarian as well was she. Her films are fantastic, and they shall remain forever.

I have trouble considering Eastwood golden age, I think he was right along that transition period from glamourous Hollywood to gritty Hollywood.

Just read that Fred Phelps and those yahoos at the Westboro Baptist Cult are planning to protest her funeral because of her humanitarian efforts. Someone needs to drive a large truck right through their little picket line.

What a piece of shit. Why can't some crazed gunman take out this asshole instead of some little girl? Phelps had better hope I don't come down with a terminal illness because if I do then his days are numbered.

Phelps is a douche bag. Him and his church should go protest something else. Something thats, oh, I don't know...BAD!

Eli is great in everything he does imho. Sophia Loren is also not from the golden age of Hollywood either but a great call none the less.
