Written by Barfoot March 24, 2011

Elizabeth Taylor, said to have been one of the greatest actresses during the Golden Era of Hollywood, passed away yesterday at the age of 79. Known for her leading rolls in Cleopatra, The Taming of the Shrew, and Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, Taylor has left her mark on the Hollywood landscape by creating some of the most timeless films to date. Winner of two academy awards for best actress, Elizabeth Taylor was known for her unquestionable talent and striking beauty.

In addition to being recognized for her successful career, Taylor was also known for her publicized personal life. Having been married eight times to seven husbands, Taylor had four children from three separate marriages. Even though she had a series of unstable relationships, she was passionate about social activism, which remained consistent throughout her career. Taylor was a strong supporter of the fight against AIDS and helped raise over $100 million dollars for the cause. Over the past decade, she was frequently photographed with the late Michael Jackson and was known to have been a close friend of the singer.

Elizabeth Taylor struggled with health problems for most of her life. However, things took a turn for the worst after she was admitted to hospital in February. Having struggled with congestive heart failure since 2004, Taylor passed away yesterday at Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles, California.

Elizabeth Taylor will be missed from today’s Hollywood landscape but will forever be remembered as a legend in cinema history.
