Elizabeth Taylor dead at 79

Hollywood legend and classic beauty Elizabeth Taylor is dead. A report from her family says that she had been hospitalized since February for congestive heart failure, and died at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in
Los Angeles this morning. She was 79-years-old.

Her film attributes include National Velvet, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, Giant and Cleopatra. She was married eight times, divorced seven (including
two nuptials and divorces with Cleopatra costar Richard Burton) and became a starch advocate of HIV/AIDS awareness, of which she raised $200 million for the cause.

Elizabeth won two Oscars: one in 1961 for BUtterfield 8 and one in 1967 for Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?
