That's a shame, before my time but she seemed nice enough - although was good mates with Michael Jackson wasn't she?

Also didn't Za Za Gabor (I'm positive that's not how you spell it) have her leg amputated the other week? She'll be next for the knackers yard.

Sad, she always came across as a gentle person on TV interviews.

Nominated for five oscars and winning two for Best Actress - isn't that enough to make you a screen legend. She was gorgeous in her younger years, bit strange, but most arty types are.

I never thought much of her because all the pictures of Eliz Taylor were of the old woman - fat, awful dyed black hair, glittery jewelry - not attractive.

Then I saw one of the movies she did back in the fifties. Whoa! A stunner.

But she wasn't the kind of stunner that would have made her an actress today. Funny how our concept of hollywood beauty changes over the years. A lot of today's starlets wouldn't have cut the cake in the 1950s because they're too scrawny. Elizabeth Taylor was....voluptuous.

Exactly! She did a huge amount of work for AIDS awareness and fundraising, before it became mainstream as well and she ought to be remembered for that as much as anything else.


The stupidest comment I have seen about her death was some daft cow saying 'Now she'll be reunited with Richard Burton in heaven' - and all the other husbands too presumably! That's be a nice menage a huit!
