An era ended yesterday morning in L.A. when US-American actress Elizabeth Taylor died.
I cannot say that I especially like the term diva but with Taylor it was most definately deserved and worn with pride. But she was not just a diva, she was also a talented actress, a beautiful woman and a vocal advocate for LGBT rights. She fought as one of the first and most dedicated against AIDS and HIV. She was a real lady even before Elizabeth II declared her one in 1999.
There are many great movies she starred in and you should probably make sure to see some of them. My favorites with her are: Father of the Bride, Suddenly Last Summer, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, Giant, and Little Women where she played Amy in the 50s version of Louisa May Alcott’s novel.
An era ended.
