Twitter BReaking news - RIP Elizabeth Taylor.
Several news organizations confirming.
What a crew........
Well, maybe Mr. Gingrich sorta wants to tell us how to live...via seeking the Oval Office. Miss Taylor...well, she just entertained, sold some perfumes, and gave/raised alot of money for charities.
Why do Obit threads have to turn into public damnings?
Sorry, meant for strider44 whoops
Gosh! I completely forgot that one and I just saw it the other night on TCM (it was James Dean night). She’s sooooooo beautiful in that and she has such a strong character.
My husband just reminded me that I saw her on stage in “The Little Foxes.” It was not a good production in my opinion but she was wonderful. By far, the best thing in it!
Really? Was that necessary???
She really was beautiful in that movie.
Anyway, I've always thought that ET was sort of different. Absolutely beautiful, but...different.
And she actually could act...take on a written, scripted persona and make it her own.
Cleopatra, yes...but Father of the Bride, Butterfield 8, and one of my absolute favorites ever...Taming of the Shrew.
A rare talent from a rarified time.
Our National Velvet will now be riding the Pie in the Sky!
Rest in Peace, Ms Taylor. I loved that movie, very inspirational to a young girl..and I was so horse-crazy a that time. I didn’t follow her other movies, this is the one that I loved.
“Ill take the elegant Sofia Loren, on any day.”
My words exactly . . . Taylor had a particular contempt for the sacrament of marriage and the responsibilities involved.
That being said, there wasn’t a single movie in which she wasn’t radiant.
Good idea about the Hagan Daz...:)
I don’t think she ever was the same after Richard Burton passed, that was when she started hanging out with whackos like Michael Jackson.
She was a legend, RIP Elizabeth Taylor.
I believed she went downhill after Richard Burton had passed.
Thank you for that picture of two of the most beautiful women of their generation - Elizabeth and Ava.
The most beautiful creature ever born on this earth.
An American icon.
Don’t fall for everything the media said about Liz or Michael. If we go by what the media said about these two. Then it must be true what the media says about Sarah Palin or Ronald Reagan - Right?
Rest in Peace Great Lady of the Screen!
No one like Elizabeth Taylor, just no one.
Wow! At least I offered her prayers....
I would like to take you seriously, but to do so would affront your intelligence.
Have a nice day.
Beautiful woman in her youth
OMG!! FREAK SHOW!!
Līberā mē, Domine, de morte æternā, in diē illa tremenda: Quandō cæli movendi sunt et terra. Dum veneris īudicāre sæculum per ignem. Tremēns factus sum ego, et timeō, dum discussio vēnerit, atque ventūra īra. Quandō cælī movendi sunt et terra. Diēs illa, diēs īræ, calamitatis et miseriæ, diēs magna et amara valde. Dum veneris īudicāre sæculum per ignem. Requiem æternam dōnā eīs, Domine: et lūx perpetua lūceat eīs. Kyrie eleison Christe eleison Kyrie eleison
Great photo. They did make a beautiful couple. RIP Liz.
Another of the greats of Hollywood is gone. Elizabeth was from the era when the stars practiced their craft and could truly act. So few of those around today. It is a shame she suffered so many health problems in her later years. Now she can be at peace.
Nice photo, but I don’t understand why her eyes are bright blue in post #8 and quite brown or perhaps olive in yours. Did she wear colored contacts? Did they even have such things at the age your photo was taken?
Photo re-touching. Way before photoshop.
I had to pull the properties from the missing pic to see it; what a photo....everybody is smoking!! horrors!
You always but something different on this forum; thanks!
Why does she get a pass? Wasnt she married about 8 times? Cant comment on her morals but freepers can destroy someone like Newt Gingrich because hes been divorced?
What an idiot you are. She just passed a way and Newt is living at this time and wants to run for President (Heaven help us).....Gag. Now is he were the one who passed away than we would not be saying nasty things about Newt.....Screw you head back on.....Disgusting to the max you are.
I agree strider; and I offer up 2 reasons why Liz is not immune from criticism about her life choices..
1) Taylor’s unconditional and very public support of Michael Jackson during his child abuse days
2) Uncounted appearances on “The Soup” for years that was repeatedly unflattering, but nobody seemed to mind at the time.
“The power of accurate observation is commonly called “cynicism” by those who have not got it.”
Her perfume, Passion, is one of my favorites.
Contact lenses have been around for a LONG time, dating back to the late 1800’s.
Sophia Loren, that waxwork? You must be kidding! Is she still married to Carlo Ponti?
Always elegant. Her beauty is gracing the Heavens, now.
My favorite of her films-— Butterfield 8 and A Place in the Sun but mainly for the performances of Clift and Winters.
Wrong. The reason is because the women just passed away not even eight hours ago and you want to run her through the dirt. Just tacky is what that is. After the funeral if you want to put your anti-Elizabeth Taylor junk on here than fine but at least have some respect for the dead on the very day no less. Are we asking too much?????? I don’t think so and you should not either.
When the going got tough -— she just kept on going. A remarkable person who never seemed to let her health problems get her down.
I don’t know how many know/heard this,
but MJ’s goal with his plastic surgery was to look like Liz Taylor.
Richard Burton looks like Russell Crowe in this shot.
May God bless her and comfort her family. She brought people happiness with her movies, and seemed to be a very nice person.
