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 ...

What a beautiful video depicting the life of Liz Taylor! She was an icon and I believe Hollywood's most beautiful actress of all time. She will be missed by many, but will all cherish her beauty and grace presented on and off-screen throughout her life.

Thank you THG: for the beautiful homage to Dame Elizabeth Taylor.
For so many years she was often described as The World's Most Beautiful Woman. Toward the end of her life, she served as a hostess to encourage others to support charitable causes. It is my understanding that she had asked Elton John (years ago) to write a "Candle in the Wind" song for her as he had done for Marilyn Monroe, and later Princess Diana. Elizabeth Taylor lived life to it's fullest and I believe that she will always be recognized as Hollywood Royalty. Again, thank you for the beautiful tribute to Hollywood's Most Beautiful Star!!
