Mmmm... don't know about that. Sophia Loren was bodacious back in her day, too.

Back in her day??

I'd take a desert island with her TODAY.

She has had bad health her entire life. She was a true beauty in her younger years and a good actress. I am not surprised that she plans on being placed next to Richard Burton. They were madly in love.

It must be a double-door.

I remember when she married Eddie Fisher, I was so stunned because I thought that he and Debbie Reynolds were going to be married forever. (well, that was the thinking of a 13 year old). Then I remember hearing that she converted to Judiasm and thought that was so cool...but still, I was angry that she split up that "perfect couple!" So, this is all from my memory....nothing else.

She was astoundingly beautiful in her youth

She truly was, and she managed to age with grace. It is very hard for a woman with beauty like that to grow old!

At least she didn't go the way of plastic surgery until you no longer recognized her.

I don't think we have many stars of her caliber today.

Amen and her beauty is unmatched. Her passing will be a great loss.

I liked that one too. Especially the polo game. The ending reminded me of "Rebecca" just a bit.

Look like fake breasties, and that face is nothing special.......excuse me.

Sorry! Maybe you're one of those guys who likes Broadway shows. Or maybe you just like Helen Thomas types... I didn't mean to offend you. My apologies...

Old women need to grow old gracefully. Giggling for billyblytheclinton isn't graceful. She looks pathetic and foolish with that boy.

There's something about Richard Burton that is just so complicated, sexy and yet repulsive at the same time. I suspect he was difficult to live with. Though an exteremely talented actor, he may have had an ego which would have conflicted with Liz's.

She's had a long and complicated life, most recently it seems as if she has undergone much suffering....

She broke her back five times.

Is that a bit odd or what?

Lovely Liz. I've loved so many of her movies - "Suddenly, Last Summer," "The Sandpipers", "Father of the Bride", "Ash Wednesday", "The V.I.P.s" ...

But I'm irresistibly reminded of that joke that was going around when she started looking, well, less-than-Cleopatra-like: "We always wanted to look like Elizabeth Taylor, and now we do."

God bless her.

Wanna see some classic ham acting? Rent out a tape of Cat on a Hot Tin Roof - it'll make you cringe (both Newman, from whom you'd expect better, and Taylor, from whom you'd expect nothing. They lose their fake Southern accents somewhere in the middle, for one example.) Another 'star vehicle' that makes no sense.

Yep. In her day she was a mega-mega-star. Nobody even comes close. She was a successful child star who became a succesful young woman star, (that doesn't happen too often), and she had a spectacular career (and scandal, which helped) in her middle years. But the party life took it's toll and she was a burn-out later in life, in terms of the movies. But she became a crusader, perfume mogul, and the successes continue. She was the first Hollywood actor to make a million bucks a pix. That's really something.

BTW, I also ound this for you!...........

Hollywood legend Elizabeth Taylor rejected tabloid media reports that she suffers from Alzheimer's disease and denied that she was seriously ill.

"Oh, come on, do I look like I'm dying? Do I look like or sound like I have Alzheimer's?" Taylor, who uses a wheelchair due to back problems, said when asked about the reports in an interview with CNN's "Larry King Live."

"If they want to hear I'm dead, I'm sorry folks, I'm not," the 74-year-old double-Oscar winner said.

American tabloid media recently reported that the star suffered from Alzheimer's, a degenerative brain disease that affects memory, thinking and behavior.

Taylor said she needs a wheelchair due to chronic back problems that she has had since she was a teenager. She added that she was born with scoliosis.

"I don't want to retire. I'm very busy, I love what I'm doing," said Taylor, who has not appeared on screen since 2001 and dedicates herself to jewelry design.

The star of films such as "Cleopatra," "Butterfield 8" and "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf" also renewed her defense of her friend Michael Jackson, who was acquitted on child sex abuse charges last year.

"I've never been so angry in my life" after the accusation surfaced against the "King of Pop," she said.

Taylor said she feels close to Jackson because "we both had horrible childhoods."

Taylor, who first soared to worldwide fame at the age of 12 in "National Velvet," has only rarely appeared in public in recent years.

She now devotes most of her time to her two-decade-old crusade against the scourge of AIDS and HIV.
