Elizabeth Taylor Passes Away at 79

by at . Comments

Elizabeth Taylor has died at the age of 79.

Her cause of death is not immediately known, but Taylor had been treated at L.A.'s Cedars-Sinai Medical Center for congestive heart failure last month.

Although she had recently suffered a number of complications, her condition had stabilized and it was hoped that she would be able to return home.

Sadly, it was not to be as she passed away.

The English-born, American-raised Elizabeth became a star at a very young age and has long been considered one of the greats of Hollywood's golden age.

A two-time Academy Award-winning actress, Elizabeth Taylor later in life became notorious for her seven marriages and sometimes eccentric behavior.

She starred in the 1944 smash hit National Velvet at age 12, then won acclaim A Place In The Sun, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof and other works in the '50s.

Taylor won Oscars in the 1960s for roles in Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf and Butterfield 8, and was often the subject of celebrity gossip fascination.

Her tempestuous marriages to Richard Burton, changing appearance, declining health and friendship with Michael Jackson all sparked speculation.

May the Dame rest in peace. Here's a nice tribute of vintage photos ...

In the next few weeks, Elizabeth will be honored with many magazines and "tabloid type chronicles" detailing her life. As a longtime fan, I believe that I know all that I Need to know, but I am looking forward to some of the beautiful pictures that I may have missed over the years. @ Free Britney:
Thank you for using a simple line that said it all in a respectable manner that told your viewers what we Needed to know about Elizabeth's passing.
