    Maybe I'm the only one who feels this way, but it seems really, really strange that she's gone. One of those things that I never really thought of happening, so it's sort of hard to process at the moment.

    I also totally agree with this.

    Butterfield 8 is a favourite book and Taylor makes the movie a favorite, too. I love watching her.

    RIP.

  • Truly among the last of the Golden Age of Hollywood. A terribly attractive woman who was a wonderful on-screen talent. No matter the role, she kept you interested with her presence and the personality she played through the character. Rest well, Liz.

    One of those personalities who seemed so much larger than life that it almost gave the sense that she would be around forever - sort of the way that envisioning a world without Michael Jackson or James Brown seemed so strange before they passed away. I dunno, one of the last of the "big ones" I guess.

    Her activism against AIDS is very nice.

    RIP

    That's precisely how I see it. Now that so many people's default position concerning celebrity in general is scorn or cynicism (often justifiably), she was one of the last remnants of an age where the figures we saw on TV or in movies seemed to exist at a heightened level of reality to regular people, and even though that whole Golden Age Of Hollywood construct was essentially illusory (as Kenneth Anger's Hollywood Babylon went on to show), it was still a contract the audience was happy to enter into. She was a star when the term still meant something. There's probably only Lauren Bacall left now.

    too true...

    liz taylor was a true superstar, apparently a world class drinker (could keep up w/ richard burton), a grade A piece of ass (that half jewish thing worked well w/ her), a diva par excellence, and, yes, the last great movie star (the 1 million she got for being Cleopatra apparently burned Marilyn Monroe to no end)... the endless marriages and drama only enhance her image, as she was sorta a prototype for all the current trainwrecks we have today, and she sons them all...

    I really can't believe adult human beings care about this shit.
