p2pnet view Movies:- One of the world’s most famous actresses of all time, Elizabeth Taylor, is dead.
Says the Telegraph >>>
Beautiful, glamorous, sexy, the actress was almost as well known for her colourful personal life as for her gigantic acting talent (remember her in Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, and Giant?). For decades, she was one half of the world’s most famous couple: she and Richard Burton married, divorced, re-married, amidst rows and passionate reunions that were played out in public nightclubs and newspapers around the globe. The two volcanic actors sparked more gossip than Brangelina ever could. Unlike Angelina Jolie, Taylor never claimed to be earth mother or save the world: her full attention was, always, directed at herself and the love of her life (of the moment).
In later years, her high-maintenance character, peerless jewellery and many husbands turned Dame Elizabeth into a camp icon. She was feted more by Elton John and Gianni Versace than by the world’s playboys. But her appeal, even as her health grew more fragile and her beauty more a shadow of its former self, hardly wavered: for this was one star who never concealed the sadness of her celebrity life. There is no point in denying it: she cut an unhappy figure – so intensely so, that her personal tragedies became public dramas in themselves. Whether it was her broken heart or her broken health, Liz Taylor hid nothing from the public she loved. But they loved her back, right to the end.
“She survived a brain tumour, suffered from a heart condition and reportedly broke her back on five separate occasions”, says the Guardian.
“In later life, she was largely confined to a wheelchair as a result of osteoporosis. Yet until today, there was something resilient about Elizabeth Taylor – a fighting spirit belied by her famous good looks. ‘I’ve been through it all, baby,’ she once boasted. ‘I’m Mother Courage’.”
She was 79.
