In an inconstant world, Elizabeth Taylor was a constant star. The actress ruled the screen from several decades (even literally in her portrayal of Cleopatra) and the drama didn’t stop off screen. The ultimate movie star.
Taylor was renowned for her seven husbands, her many public and scandalous and infamous affairs with Eddie Fisher and Richard Burton and her sharp acid tongue but will always be remembered for her scintillating, seductive presence and those violet eyes. If Mr Undandy were a woman, Liz would be her. Ambition is nothing without action.
‘Happiness wasn’t bestowed on me; I earned it.’
