Elizabeth Taylor Dead at 79

CNN says:

Los Angeles (CNN) -- Elizabeth Taylor, the legendary actress famed for her beauty, her jet-set lifestyle, her charitable endeavors and her many marriages, has died, her publicist told CNN Wednesday. She was 79.

Taylor died "peacefully today in Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles," said a statement from her publicist. She was hospitalized six weeks ago with congestive heart failure, "a condition with which she had struggled for many years. Though she had recently suffered a number of complications, her condition had stabilized and it was hoped that she would be able to return home. Sadly, this was not to be."

The story is too old to be commented.

Wow...that's really hard to believe she's passed on. She was such an icon for so long. Geez, only 3 months into this year and we've lost a lot of actors.

I heard about her passing on my way home from work this morning. An amazing actress and a wonderful humanitarian. She will always be remembered as one of the Hollywood greats.

@ Kingdom Come

Yes, she was very much of an icon. Hell you still see those perfume commercials on all the time! I wasn't a big fan of hers either, but it's hard to deny the impact she had on the Hollywood scene.

@ theBurnedMan

Totally agree, dead just sounds a little harsh and not very empathetic. Silly I know, but I agree with you...
