    Not very shocked by this. I think she's been ill for a while. RIP Ms. Taylor. :(

    Such sad news; she was one of the most beautiful women to have ever graced the silver screen, and her passion for personal causes made her even more a legend. Rest in peace, Liz!

    She will live through her wonderful films. Suddenly last summer is one of my all time favourites. R.I.P.

    RIP Liz. your journey was a memorable one, especially later in life with all her tireless work on the behalf of AIDS research.

    Favorite movies would be "Father of the Bride" and "Giant".

    It will take me awhile to realize that she really isn't here any more... :(:(:(

    My favorite Liz movie is The Sandpiper. I will watch it today for her.

    A beautiful person; inside and out,
    What a legacy she leaves, as an actress - and activist.

    RIP, Elizabeth. Thank you.
    You will never be forgotten!

    Funny, I was just wondering about that the other day in the checkout line, looking at all the tabloids and their death-watch headlines for any older celeb with a cold. For some reason I remembered her and wondered how she was doing.

    She was a true actress and screen star. Just half of her movies would have been a terrific career for any actress today, but she made everything more special with her talent. After all that, nobody would have blamed her for sitting back and enjoying the fruits of her labors, but her activism and desire to make this world a better place made her even more special.

    The world lost a true star.

    A very nice, long tribute from the NY Times.


    --------

    I think Kirk Douglas and to a lesser extent Micky Rooney are the only stars remaining from Hollywood's "Golden Age".

    She is one of the last big screen icons

    Notable movies -

    National Velvet, Little Women, A Place in the Sun, Ivanhoe, Giant, Raintree County, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, Suddenly Last Summer, Butterfield 8, Cleopatra, Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf, Taming of the Shrew.

    I loved Suddenly Last Summer and Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf. Suddenly Last Summer was considered as 'pushing the envelope' back in 1959. Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf in 1966 with its foul language helped crack the motion picture code and replace it with ratings [G, PG, R, X] around 1968.

    Her death saddens me. One selfish reason is because my mother is only one year younger then Elizabeth. All the stars my mother grew up with are passing away and it's only a matter of time.

    RIP Elizabeth Taylor :(

    A legend....and one of the first celebrities to give a crap about people with HIV/AIDS.

    Love ya, Liz, and thank you!!!!

    In "Father of the Bride" (1950) & "A Place in the Sun" (1951), just so gorgeous! My fave performances: "Cat/Roof" (1958) & "Suddenly, Last Summer" (1959).

    So sad. :(

    I hear you. My own mother will be 74 1 month from tomorrow, my dad is 71, and I have a buddy/mentor who just turned 70 2 months ago yesterday. Luckily, all 3 of them are in good health physically and mentally, but nothing lasts forever. :(
