„We have just lost a Hollywood legend but more important is that we have lost an exceptional human being“ said Elton John at a concert in Pennsylvania. At her own request the actress Elizabeth Taylor, who died of cardiac insufficiency on March 23, 2011, was buried very diva-like in the socialites cemetery Forest Lawn in Los Angeles, close to her friend Michael Jackson. In this city, in the MGM Studios, her career started.
Almost 70 years before, at the age of ten, she acted in the Film “Lassie” and became a celebrity. Very soon she received the image of the girl next door. Liz Taylor wasn’t in theheadlines only due to her performance, by the way without ever taking any formal drama lessons, but also because of her overall eight marriages. Also her big engagement in the struggle against AIDS remains unforgotten. Therefore in1993 she even received an “honour” Oscar which was her third all in all. In the year 2003 she retired from the entertainment business.
