Elizabeth Taylor left yesterday, Wednesday 23 March 2011, at the age of 79 in a Los Angeles hospital. Hollywood and the world of cinema lose probably the last of its movie queens and one of the best actresses ever.
She died at Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles on Wednesday, after having been hospitalised six weeks ago with congestive heart failure, a condition with which she had struggled for some years, and had recently suffered complications, a statement from her publicist Sally Morrison said.
"She was surrounded by her children - Michael Wilding, Christopher Wilding, Liza Todd, and Maria Burton," it said, noting that she was also survived by 10 grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.
"My mother was an extraordinary woman who lived life to the fullest, with great passion, humour, and love. Though her loss is devastating to those of us who held her so close and so dear, we will always be inspired by her enduring contribution to our world," her son Michael said in a statement.
"Her remarkable body of work in film, her ongoing success as a businesswoman, and her brave and relentless advocacy in the fight against HIV/AIDS, all make us all incredibly proud of what she accomplished.
"We know, quite simply, that the world is a better place for Mom having lived in it. Her legacy will never fade, her spirit will always be with us, and her love will live forever in our hearts," he said.
