Elizabeth Taylor, cinematic icon, heartbreaker, survivor, nutcase

Queen Elizabeth Taylor

She’s STILL big. It’s the pictures that got small.

You know, that woman may or may not be batshit insane but, given the fact that she literally cannot remember a time when she wasn’t world-famous, and given that she has earned her own way to her place in history, it’s hard to begrudge the old bat her jewels, her antics, her men, her millions, or her attitude. Of course she’s on a star trip: she’s THE star! She is, and always has been, Elizabeth Fucking Taylor.

Which reminds me of something Katherine Hepburn said about … was it Ruth Gordon?…

“Of course the bitch is good in closeups. She invented them!”

  1. Yes, being insane seems to be compulsory when you’re more famous than Elvis, or you are in fact Elvis, albeit very dead. I mean, look at Micheal Jackson, or ‘Jacko’ as he’s known because he’s so removed from being a man he’s even lost his name. I think he wanted to be Liz Taylor. Poor fool – there’s only one.

    She’s got violet eyes hasn’t she?
