One of today’s hundreds of tributes to the late Elizabeth Taylor, the violet-eyed beauty from the golden age of movies said: We will never see the likes of her again. I agree.
She was always one of my favorites. Few could dispute the description so many news outlets placed upon her: The most beautiful woman in the world.
Legendary actress Elizabeth Taylor has died at age 79.
Taylor had been hospitalized in February for congestive heart failure, a condition she learned she had in 2004. A two time Oscar winner (for “Butterfield 8″ in 1960 and “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?” in 1966), Taylor was also known for her eight high profile marriages.
In mid-March, her publicist, Sally Morrison, said she was in stable condition at the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.
Taylor’s son, Michael Wilding, released a statement on the passing:
“My Mother was an extraordinary woman who lived life to the fullest, with great passion, humor, and love. Though her loss is devastating to those of us who held her so close and so dear, we will always be inspired by her enduring contribution to our world. Her remarkable body of work in film, her ongoing success as a businesswoman, and her brave and relentless advocacy in the fight against HIV/AIDS, all make us all incredibly proud of what she accomplished. We know, quite simply, that the world is a better place for Mom having lived in it. Her legacy will never fade, her spirit will always be with us, and her love will live forever in our hearts.”
