Elizabeth Taylor , the violet-eyed beauty whose hectic off-screen love life often eclipsed her most sultry film roles, has died. She was 79.
A 50.6-carat pearl given to Elizabeth Taylor by her husband Richard Burton sold for a record $11.8 million as Christie’s International hosted the world’s most expensive private jewelry auction.
Elizabeth Taylor was the ultimate movie star.
Peter O’Toole, who gained worldwide fame as the star of “Lawrence of Arabia” at the dawn of a career that included four Golden Globe awards and eight Academy Award nominations, has died. He was 81.
“My Love Affair with Jewelry” -- that’s how Elizabeth Taylor summed up her life in the book she wrote instead of an autobiography.
A 33-carat diamond and a Van Gogh painting will be among top lots in auctions that may raise more than $50 million for the estate of Elizabeth Taylor.
"Go away, you harridan."
