Elizabeth Taylor Dead at 79

Elizabeth Taylor has passed away at the age of 79.

The legendary Hollywood actress was hospitalized at Los Angeles’ Cedars-Sinai Medical Center nearly two months ago for congestive heart failure.

Elizabeth “was surrounded by her children – Michael Wilding, Christopher Wilding, Liza Todd, and Maria Burton,” her publicist told ABC News.

Elizabeth, who won two Academy Awards during her long career, is survived by 10 grandchildren and 4 great-grandchildren.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Elizabeth‘s family and friends.

  • Emily

    One of the most beautiful stars in the world. Even though Marylin Monroe was gorgeous, I always thought that Liz was more beautiful. She had brains as well as beauty. She was the one that started the celebrity perfume trend that is so popular now. She certainly lived an interesting life. Rest in peace.

    EXTREMELY BEAUTIFUL WOMAN, GREAT ACTRESS!! Those eyes are the most beautiful ones in the history of Hollywood and the couple Liz Taylor/Richard Burton is possibly the most fascinating love story. Angelina Jolie and Brad pitt are nothing but trash compared with them. RIP Goddess
