Legendary Actress, Elizabeth Taylor, Dies
Posted on 03/23/11
Taylor had been in Cedar-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles for about six weeks.
Taylor first gained stardom as a child and appeared in more than 50 films. She won Oscars for her performances in “Butterfield 8″ and “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?”
She was equally famous for extraordinary beauty and her stormy personal life, including eight marriages and a series of physical ailments.
In later years, she was a spokeswoman for humanitarian causes, notably AIDS research. That work gained her a special Oscar in 1993.
“My Mother was an extraordinary woman who lived life to the fullest, with great passion, humor, and love,” said her son, Michael Wilding, in a statement. “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.”
