The whole world is in mourning for beloved actress Elizabeth Taylor. The actress had a dramatic life both on and off screen.

Born in England in 1932, and started her acting career at just ten.

Young Elizabeth

Her breakthrough role was in Lassie Come home in 1943, and then starred in MGM’s National Velvet where she starred alongside the infamous Mickey Rooney. Star was born!

She grew up in the limelight and continued to star in box office smashes. All through

The 50’s she starred in Rhapsody, Beau Brummel, and the hit Giant where she worked alongside James Dean.

She was nominated for two academy awards, and lost out on both. But then her time came in 1960 when she brought home the coveted statue for her flawless performance in Butterfield.

She also starred in Cleopatra in 1963 which was the most expensive production to date. Her performance in Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf in 1963 won her general critical acclaim, and her second Academy Award. It has to be said that this could have been her greatest role to date, but after this she never really reached the same heights.

The Gorgeous Young Actress

It was her personal life too that evoked controversy for the screen legend. She was married eight times.

The first was to Conrad Nicky Hilton. He was a heir to the Hilton hotels, but this marriage only lasted a year from 1950-1951.

Elizabeth didn’t wait around for long, and in 1952 got remarried to Michael Wilding, a Brtish actor. The pair had two songs together before the marriage failed in 1957.

Tragically, Elizabeths third husband Michael Todd died in a plane crash just a year after marriage.

In 1959 the actress married her deceased husbands good friend Eddie Fisher. Fisher had already been married to actress Debbie Reynolds. The marriage between Fisher and Taylor sparked controversy, and she was deemed a home wrecker.

Bride

In 1964, after divorcing Eddie, Elizabeth married feisty Welsh actor Richard Burton for the first time. The couple divorced in 1974 and decided to give it another go in 1975. They then divorced in 1976.

John Warner, a senator was next for Elizabeth. It has to be said that he actually became a senator because of his relationship with the actress. This marriage lasted until 1982.

In an incredibly controversial decision, Taylor married Larry Fortensky who was a construction worker with a mullet. He was also significantly younger than Elizabeth. This marriage lasted 5 years and ended in 1996.

The stars last public appearance was at the funeral of Michael Jackson in 2009, and her health has deteriorated until her death.
