    She had some amazing performances during her career. Who's Afraid of Virginia Wolf was always a favorite of mine. RIP.

    RIP Indeed.

    Not just a pretty face, she also used her star power to raise AIDS awareness when few would even go near that issue.

    Wasn't she ill for the past 10 years? It seems like she has been on death watch for a long time.

    I have heard this used before, and understand the context, but I don't know the origin of it.

    I'm lazy, so, if you would indulge me? ;)

    This is the one I will cling to.

    Some poor lad, in a WWI Sopwith Camel, I muse.

    Curse you, Red Baron!!!

    I think she's been on vacation for 40 years. But man she was hot back in her day.

    Why is it every time a celebrity dies Elton John's comments have to be quoted? Does any one care what he thinks? I bet he never even met her.

    IIRC, didn't they join forces to fight AIDS/ raise awareness in the early 1990s?

    Maybe because they were friends and raised millions for AIDS research.

    Actually, I think we just had the the two seconds needed to type 'friendship elton john liz taylor' into Google before making an (incorrect) blanket statement. ;)

    When I went away to college I had a fuzzy photo of Liz taken by a relative who watched her make the film The Sandpiper down the coast from Big Sur. It was hard to tell who it was, but there was no doubt about her very exceedingly exceptional build and beauty.

    My new roommates were showing photos of the girlfriends they left behind and bragging about how hot they were, so I pulled out Liz and claimed she was my girlfriend "Mary".

    Shut them up, like instantly. I kept the secret for weeks. It was fun.
