Elizabeth Taylor Out In West Hollywood

March 21st, 2008 // 8 Comments

Due to her failing health, Elizabeth Taylor rarely has a chance to enjoy a public outing (except, of course, when she’s swimming with the sharks), so it was a rare treat to see the actress enjoying a lovely sunny day out at the Abbey (AKA the Happiest Place on Earth) in West Hollywood.

The 75-year-old actress and long-time AIDS activist suffers from osteoporosis and has battled a long list of health problems, including a benign brain tumor, congestive heart failure and in the past, she has relied on a combination of steroids and pain killers to fight her back pain.

Now, however, she has stopped taking the medications, which many of her friends blame for her often slurred speech and the occasional wacky outburst Liz has experienced in public. She’s fantastic, but I think that maybe part of her problem might stem from the copious amounts of jewelry she’s wears. God love her, that stuff is just too damn heavy.

    No matter how much she ages, she still has the most gorgeous smile and perfect lips. Some of the collagen stuffed, trout-pouted young actresses of today could learn a few things from her.

    Elizabeth Taylor is, and has always been, strikingly beautiful.

    I wish she was in better physical health and could enjoy this time of her life more. She looks pretty happy, though, doesn’t she?

    Does she even know where she is?

    I SAW ELIZABETH THAT DAY AT THE ABBEY. IT WAS KIND OF A SHOCK. HARD TO BELIEVE THIS WAS ONCE CONSIDERED THE MOST BEAUTIFUL WOMAN IN THE WORLD. AND SHE ACTUALLY WAS, I THINK. THERE HAVE BEEN NONE BEORE OR SINCE TO MATCH THAT FACE IN “CAT ON A HOT TIN ROOF” OF “SUDDENLY LAST SUMMER” OR “CLEOPATRA”. SHE HAS NOT AGED WELL PHYSICALLY AND SOME OF THOSE GET UPS SHE WEARS ARE EQUALLY SHOCKING. BUT SHE STILL HAS THAT GRAND AURA….

    She has been there for everyone before it was fashionable. She has stood by friends, stood up to ignornant foes, and been there for all of us. Her talent…huge, her beauty unquestionable, and her heart immeasurable! Bow down before your Queen, she is a goddess like no other! Maggie the cat is ALIVE!

    We all get older. Elizabeth Taylor was one of the most underrated actresses of her time, just because of her immense beauty. She’s not just pretty, she’s beautiful and even at the age of 77, she still ranks as one of the world’s most lovely. Sophia Loren is another timeless beauty. Women like these are the last examples and vestages of a Hollywood system “gone with the wind”. There will never be another Liz Taylor…enjoy her whilest you have her!!
