Mini Bio (1)
Elizabeth Rosemond Taylor was elizabeth taylor wedding ring 2018 considered one of the last, if not the last, major star to have come out of the old Hollywood studio system. She was known internationally for her beauty, especially for her violet eyes, with which she captured audiences early on in her youth and kept the world hooked on with since.
Taylor was born on February 27, 1932 in London, England. Although she was born an English subject, her parents, Sara Sothern (née Sara Viola Warmbrodt) and Francis Lenn Taylor, were Americans, art dealers from St. Louis, Missouri (her father had gone to London to set up a gallery). Her mother had been an actress on the stage, but gave up that vocation when she married. Elizabeth lived in London until the age of seven, when the family left for the US when the clouds of war began brewing in Europe in 1939. They sailed without her father, who stayed behind to wrap up the loose ends of the art business.
The family relocated to Los Angeles, where Mrs. Taylor's own family had moved. Mr. Taylor followed not long afterward. A family friend noticed the strikingly beautiful little Elizabeth and suggested that she be taken for a screen test. Her test impressed executives at Universal Pictures enough to sign her to a contract. Her first foray onto the screen was in (1942), released when she was ten. Universal dropped her contract after that one film, but Elizabeth was soon picked up by MGM.
The first production she made with that studio was (1943), and on the strength of that one film, MGM signed her for a full year. She had minuscule parts in her next two films, (1944) and (1943) (the former made while she was on loan to 20th Century-Fox). Then came the picture that made Elizabeth a star: MGM's (1944). She played Velvet Brown opposite. The film was a smash hit, grossing over million. Elizabeth now had a long-term contract with MGM and was its top child star. She made no films in 1945, but returned in 1946 in (1946), another success. In 1947, when she was 15, she starred in (1947) with such heavyweights as, and, which was one of the biggest box office hits of the year. She also co-starred in the ensemble film (1949), which was also a box office huge success.
Throughout the 1950s, Elizabeth appeared in film after film with mostly good results, starting with her role in the film (1951), co-starring her good friend. The following year, she co-starred in (1952), one of the biggest box office hits of the year. Her busiest year was 1954. She had a supporting role in the box office flop (1954), but later that year starred in the hits (1954) and (1954). She was 22 now, and even at that young age was considered one of the world's great beauties. In 1955 she appeared in the hit (1956) with.
Sadly, Dean never saw the release of the film, as he died in a car accident in 1955. The next year saw Elizabeth co-star with in (1957), an overblown epic made, partially, in Kentucky. Critics called it dry as dust. In addition, Clift was seriously injured during the film, with Taylor helping save his life. Despite the film's shortcomings and off-camera tragedy, Elizabeth was nominated for an Academy Award for her portrayal of Southern belle Susanna Drake. However, on Oscar night the honor went to for (1957).
In 1958 Elizabeth starred as Maggie Pollitt in (1958). The film received rave reviews from the critics and Elizabeth was nominated again for an Academy Award for best actress, but this time she lost to in (1958). She was still a hot commodity in the film world, though. In 1959 she appeared in another mega-hit and received yet another Oscar nomination for (1959). Once again, however, she lost out, this time to for (1959). Her Oscar drought ended in 1960 when she brought home the coveted statue for her performance in (1960) as Gloria Wandrous, a call girl who is involved with a married man. Some critics blasted the movie but they couldn't ignore her performance. There were no more films for Elizabeth for three years. She left MGM after her contract ran out, but would do projects for the studio later down the road. In 1963 she starred in (1963), which was one of the most expensive productions up to that time--as was her salary, a whopping,000,000. The film took years to complete, due in part to a serious illness during which she nearly died.
This was the film where she met her future and fifth husband, (the previous four were Conrad Hilton,, --who died in a plane crash--and ). Her next films, (1963) and (1965), were lackluster at best. Elizabeth was to return to fine form, however, with the role of Martha in (1966). Her performance as the loudmouthed, shrewish, unkempt, yet still alluring Martha was easily her finest to date. For this she would win her second Oscar and one that was more than well-deserved. The following year, she and Burton co-starred in (1967), again giving winning performances. However, her films afterward were box office failures, including (1967), (1967) (1968) (again co-starring with Burton), (1968), (1970), (1972), (1972) (with Burton again), (1973), (1973), (1974), (1976) (considered by many to be her worst), (1977), and (1979) (a controversial film which was never given a full release and in which she only had a small role). Since then, she has appeared in some movies, both theatrical and made-for-television, and a number of television programs. In February 1997, Elizabeth entered the hospital for the removal of a brain tumor. The operation was successful. As for her private life, she divorced Burton in 1974, only to remarry him in 1975 and divorce him, permanently, in 1976. She had two more husbands, U.S. Senator and construction worker, whom she met in rehab.
In 1959, Taylor converted to Judaism, and continued to identify herself as Jewish throughout her life, being active in Jewish causes. Upon the death of her friend, actor, in 1985, she began her crusade on the behalf of AIDS sufferers. In the 1990s, she also developed a successful series of scents. In her later years, her acting career was relegated to the occasional TV-movie or TV guest appearance.
Elizabeth Taylor died on March 23, 2011 in Los Angeles, from congestive heart failure. Her final resting place is Forest Lawn Memorial Park, in Glendale, California.

[on her weight fluctuations] When you're fat, the world is divided into two groups - people who bug you and people who leave you alone. The funny thing is, supporters and saboteurs exist in either camp.
Success is a great deodorant. It takes away all your past smells.
Some of my best leading men have been dogs and horses.
I don't remember much about (1963). There were a lot of other things going on.
One problem with people who have no vices is that they're pretty sure to have some annoying virtues.
[About ] The most gorgeous thing in the world and easily one of the best actors.
You find out who your real friends are when you're involved in a scandal.
[on ] I'm not taking anything away from Debbie  because she never really had it.
 Acting is, to me now, artificial. Seeing people suffer is real. It couldn't be more real. Some people don't like to look at it in the face because it's painful. But if nobody does, then nothing gets done.
 There's still so much more to do. I can't sit back and be complacent, and none of us should be. I get around now in a wheelchair, but I get around.
[on ] What is a genius? What is a living legend? What is a mega star? Michael Jackson - that's all. And when you think you know him, he gives you more... I think he is one of the finest people to hit this planet, and, in my estimation, he is the true King of Pop, Rock and Soul.
[on ] His image had as much impact in the world as many of our presidents have had, but Duke was a great actor, a great humanitarian, but always himself. To be a friend was a lifetime thing.
Food is one of life's great pleasures - I hate dieting!
I believe in mind over matter and doing anything you set your mind on.
I, along with the critics, have never taken myself very seriously.
[on ] He is part of my heart. We would do anything for each other.
[on ] I'm afraid in those last few years I gave him a rather rough time. Sort of henpecked him and probably wasn't mature enough for him. It wasn't that we had anything to fight over. We just weren't happy.
[on ] He is as tough as an old nut and as soft as a yellow ribbon.
[on ] He was the epitome of the movie star -- so romantic, such bearing, such friendliness.
[on ] Monty was the most emotional actor I have ever worked with. And it is contagious.
[on ] She seemed to have a kind of unconscious glow about her physical self that was innocent, like a child. When she posed nude, it was 'Gee, I am kind of, you know, sort of dishy,' like she enjoyed it without being egotistical.
I will love forever. (On 's death)
[on the death of ] I just don't believe that Michael would want me to share my grief with millions of others. How I feel is between us. Not a public event.
Richard came on the set and sort of sidled over to me and said: "Has anybody ever told you that you're a very pretty girl?" 'I thought, Oy gevalt, the great lover, the great wit, the great Welsh intellectual, and he comes out with a corny line like that! But then I noticed his hands were shaking as if he had Saturday night palsy. He had the worst hangover I'd ever seen. And he was obviously terrified of me. I just took pity on him. I realized he really was human. That was the beginning of our affair.
[on her conversion to Judaism] It had absolutely nothing to do with my past marriage to Mike [Todd] or my upcoming marriage to, both of whom were Jewish. It was something I had wanted to do for a long time.
I don't entirely approve of some of the things I have done, or am, or have been. But I'm me. God knows, I'm me.
I have the emotions of a child in the body of a woman. I was rushed into womanhood for the movies. It caused me long moments of unhappiness and doubt.
The ups and downs, the problems and stress, along with all the happiness, have given me optimism and hope because I am living proof of survival.
I've come through things that would have felled an ox. That fills me with optimism, not just for myself but for our particular species.
[on ] He is one of the most normal people I know.
I hate being called "Liz", because it can sound like such a hiss.
[on (1963)] They had cut out the heart, the essence, the motivations, the very core, and tacked on all those battle scenes. It should have been about three large people, but it lacked reality and passion. I found it vulgar.
[on (1960), for which she won an Oscar] A piece of shit.
Straight sex, gay sex, bisexual sex, use a condom whoever you are.
If someone's dumb enough to offer me a million dollars to make a picture, I'm certainly not dumb enough to turn it down.
[to in 1990, when she was in the hospital battling bacterial pneumonia] When this is over, I will marry you.
You can't be with somebody for like eight years and have loved them and shared life with them and just have it disappear like turning off a faucet. If I love somebody, I love them always.
 I would give up everything I have. I would live in a shack--if I could give Richard a baby.
 Larry sees through the world of bullshit I live in. He's very protective.
I have to be stronger and more appreciative of what I do have.
Every breath you take today should be with someone else in mind.
Never let yourself think beyond your means...mental, emotional or any otherwise.
Humor is the only way to stay alive.
