Today is a very sad day as Hollywood has lost one of its last acting legends. The lady with the violet eyes, Elizabeth Taylor, died today at Cedars-Sinai hospital in L.A. of congestive heart failure at age 79.
According to a statement released by her publicist, Taylor passed away surrounded by her four children.
In a statement released by ABC News, her son Michael said:
"My Mother was an extraordinary woman who lived life to the fullest, with great passion, humor, and love. Though her loss is devastating to those of us who held her so close and so dear, we will always be inspired by her enduring contribution to our world. Her remarkable body of work in film, her ongoing success as a businesswoman, and her brave and relentless advocacy in the fight against HIV/AIDS, all make us all incredibly proud of what she accomplished. We know, quite simply, that the world is a better place for Mom having lived in it. Her legacy will never fade, her spirit will always be with us, and her love will live forever in our hearts."
Taylor began her career at the age of 9 and continued her rose to fame into adulthood, winning two Oscars for Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? and Butterfield 8.
Here at Radio Pop Action! we would love to send our condolences to her family and loved ones. Elizabeth was not only the ultimate Hollywood star, but an extraordinary human being who will be deeply missed.
