Loved them in Taming of the Shrew. She certainly was very beautiful. I thought she was excellent in Cat on a Hot Tin Roof and Cleopatra. Even though she was married so many times, she seemed to manage a bit of decorum about her private life.
Elizabeth Taylor is Hollywood Royalty. It's always difficult transitioning from being a child star but she did so with such aplomb. Her beauty is a classic one, which is why I think she's been a constant throughout the Hollywood eras.
Not only is she gorgeous but a very fine actress, expressive and the characters she developed were award winning. I loved her in Butterfield 8.
I had forgotten about that one also Annalise....wonder how many she DID make -only negative thing about her was not aging gracefully -I don't know why they all have to try to look younger -perhaps because they CAN!
She is a bit before my time, but I am told she was a great actress. From the time when she used to hang out with Michael Jackson, she looked like she expected to be treated like a queen and was entitled. She had several husbands so the way I see it, they had to do things her way or leave. She seemed like a selfish lady who was always right. She sure couldn't keep a man because they had to ' never question her ' or the divorce papers would soon appear. She is a great actress but I don't like her for these reasons.
So much to say,so little time!!! I must admit to enjoying watching this very beautiful as well as talented woman.And has everyone forgotten all the good she has done for various charities?A genuine philanthropist and humanitarian who did so much to help others,and won many major Humanitarian awards including the Presidential Citizen's Medal. She also was made a Dame of the British Empire by Queen Elizabeth in 1999.She was the first female star to be paid the magical Million Dollars for a film role,being the title role of Cleopatra,and this led to other actresses being paid phenomenal sums for their work.She also was the very first celebrity to launch a Perfume brand.And look how many have followed THAT particular road?......PLUS Did you know that she converted to Judaism when she married Mike Todd in the late 50's as this was his religion and it truly struck a chord in her beliefs!
Yes! an amazing woman indeed about whom there is so very much more which can be said!
One of the greatest actresses of her time. Loved her in National Velvet and so many more. Dramatic on and off the screen but remained beautiful (even with a little help). Hard to find many of the old school who lived life to its fullest.
Any woman who survived the Hollywood Machine reasonably intact should be applauded. She doesn't deserve to be harshly judged. Are any of us perfect? What would any of us have done in her position? Is being sexy a sin? She lived her life fully; a gutsy, beautiful woman. Good on her!
There but for the grace of God..........
E T is not to my taste despite the fact that, at one time, she married a fellow Welshman and together they gave us a memorable rendering of Dylan Thomas's "Under Milkwood. However I much prefer Kathleen Ferrier, Liv Ullmann, Joan of Arc and my own dear wife. Ken
