she was the Angelina Joline of her day (a great choice to portray her in a bio movie BTW)...during the filming of Anthony and Cleopatra she drove the director and Richard Burton crazy

Jennifer Anniston can play Debbie Reynolds and Billie Bob Thornton can play Eddie Fisher

no question about it..she lived one heck of a life

It is with great sadness that Elizabeth Taylor has died. To me she will not just be remembered as a great actress, but a person who gave so much to several causes. I admire her for that fact that she had many operations and health problems but never complained; she will be sorely missed!

Elizabeth Taylor was also a smart business woman, who invested wisely in real estate.

A lot of people are wise investors . Elizabeth Taylor sustained a career from 1944 to 2004 . She was a very good but not a great actress .However ,she had physical presence that nobody ever had before ,IMHO .

Henry 43, well said. ET was very good but not the best. She is in many ways better know for her private life than on screen talent. She did win two oscars no small task for sure, she will be missed. Mike
