I’m going to try to write this post without sounding like too much of an asshole, but no promises. Because I truly love, admire and have the utmost respect for The Great Elizabeth Taylor and that is exactly what she was. At least when she was healthy and sober and not starving poor countries because she couldn’t control her appetite. Or denying the rest of the world alcohol because she would drink anything with a smell of alcohol in it. Like I said, no promises.
But again when she was on her game, you were talking about a beautiful baby-face adorable brunette, no matter how old she was, who was funny enough to go toe-to-toe with the great comedian, The King of Late Night Johnny Carson. As you see in this video and when you lived the life that she did, which was exactly what she did, lived her life and didn’t just be alive trying to please others with how she lived, but she lived her life with many ups and downs because she took many risks that came though for her and also backfired. And when you live like that, you leave yourself open for satire.
The only way Liz Taylor was the stereotypical actress, was with her personal life. That being such a great beautiful, adorable and funny actress I guess didn’t bring enough fame for her and how she lived her personal life if anything made her just as famous. Marrying so many men, that there were lonely women in Los Angeles, gorgeous sexy lonely women in Los Angles. And in a lot of cases married and why was that, because all of those men were with Liz at least at one time or the other.
Sober healthy Liz, I don’t think there is a better actress as far as delivery, personality, intelligence, sense of humor, wit, the women had it all and is better than anyone else. And then you add the facts that she was again a beautiful sexy baby-face brunette who was about as sexy as any great biker or rocker chick you may ever see, as you see in this video in her late fifties and she was the definition of total package when it came to actress’s. But when she wasn’t sober and unhealthy, meaning overweight if not obese, you’re talking about a punching bag for comedians. What a life.
