Elizabeth Taylor has passed away.
And… what I’ll miss most is what Taylor had to say.
Taylor has ruled Hollywood for decades both on AND off the screen.
Her 8 marriages (to 7 different men) sometimes garnered her more attention than her Oscar winning performances on the big screen (she was nominated for 5 Academy Awards… winning 2).
Taylor had some classic lines on-screen during her career.
My favourites are from interviews.
Here are a few of the best:
“Big girls need big diamonds.”
“I don’t think President Bush is doing anything at all about Aids. In fact, I’m not sure he even knows how to spell Aids.”
“I haven’t read any of the autobiographies about me.”
“When people say, ‘She’s got everything’, I’ve got one answer – I haven’t had tomorrow.”
“My mother says I didn’t open my eyes for eight days after I was born, but when I did, the first thing I saw was an engagement ring. I was hooked.”
“Some of my best leading men have been dogs and horses.”
Rest in peace Elizabeth Taylor.
