Elizabeth Taylor : 1932 - 2011
I grew up knowing everything about movie star and Hollywood great - the very beautiful Elizabeth Taylor, although I've only watched a handful of the films she starred in.
I do know the number of marriages she had and who her ex-husbands were. Who doesn't?
And all learnt during an era where there were no internet, E-news, twitter and God-knows-what-else.
Just this morning I caught a bit of "True Hollywood Story" about her on Astro (channel 712). She was a true movie star of Hollywood glamour and glitz. And she was probably the last one...
Los Angeles Times hailed her as "the woman who invented celebrity".
"The creature of Hollywood was one of the biggest believers in movie dreams and lived in dramatic fashion to the point where it was hard to know where the movie left off and her life began."
Read it HERE.
Elizabeth Taylor died on Wednesday, at 79, of congestive heart failure.
She was laid to rest Thursday afternoon at Forest Lawn Cemetery, in Los Angeles
