She also lived life in a way I admire. At times recklessly and to excess - but seriously - you only get one shot. Enjoy it. Liz seems to have lived following this quote and had a great time doing it. Rest in Peace - you were one in a million!

“Life is not a journey to the grave, with the intention of arriving safely, in one pretty and well-preserved piece, but to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, worn out and defiantly shouting ‘Geronimo!!!’”
Loved the quote if I wasn't being cremated that is what I would want on my tombstone

A. Jolie is not fit to even shine the shoes of Elizabeth Taylor IMO she is not a good actress.

Amen I am so sick of these women who think they look good so they can get on the big screen . Jolie is only on the screen because her daddy is Jon Voight a man who can act .. she is certainly not in the caliber of elizabeth taylor .

I think Liz would appreciate this comparison:

She was like a flawless diamond, shimmering and sparkling and flashing all the colors of the rainbow ... her life was brilliant and her beauty was radiant. She began as a pretty but unpolished gem: talented but spoiled, indulged and pampered; living the high life of fashion, glamour, luxury and fame. Then came the cutting and polishing of the gem, she revealed her kindness and compassion, became outspoken and courageous as a stigmatized disease ravaged friends and strangers alike. With maturity and a final finishing her true beauty and elegance was revealed ... she was not merely a star but a Super-nova.

Just like Cleopatra, whom she portrayed, Elizabeth was not only beautiful and fascinating, but a legend.
