Elizabeth Taylor - the woman, the legend, the actress.
She embodied both the full-fledged diva and the divine actress. Whether it was for iconography in Cleopatra (1963) or deglam in Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? (1966), she always shined, shined above it all. Sometimes her acting could be considered over-the-top and flamboyant, especially in the latter part of her career, but still her performances in A Place in the Sun, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof and Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? proves to us all that she was one hell of an actress who could play both vulnerable and strong. Unfortunately many people will probably remember her more for her stormy private life, her on-and-off relationship with Richard Burton, her friendship with Michael Jackson and that time she announced the Best Picture at the 2001 Golden Globe awards.
But even when her private life was at a low, her star still glowed, and up until her dying day she was a star, and still is a star shining above us all at the sky.
