Hollywood Reacts To Elizabeth Taylor's Death

Mar 23, 2011 01:25 PM


Silver screen legend Elizabeth Taylor passed away at the age of 79 today, and stars of all ages have reacted to the sad news of her death.

Close pal Elton John told CNN, "We have just lost a Hollywood giant. More importantly, we have lost an incredible human being." Barbra Streisand added, "It's the end of an era. It wasn't just her beauty or her stardom. It was her humanitarianism. She put a face on HIV/AIDS. She was funny. She was generous. She made her life count."

Former President Bill Clinton and Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton released the following statement:

    "With the passing of Elizabeth Taylor, America has lost one of its greatest talents and fiercest advocates for HIV/AIDS research. Born in England, Elizabeth became thoroughly American royalty. For more than a generation, she brought to life unforgettable characters on film, and her tireless efforts to combat AIDS brought hope to millions of people around the world. We were honored to host her at the White House in 2001 when she received the Presidential Citizens Medal for her relentless crusade for more AIDS research and better care."

Taylor was admitted to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center last month after suffering congestive heart failure symptoms, and she was with her four children at the time of her death.

During her career, Taylor won two Best Actress Oscars: the first in 1961 for Butterfield 8 and later in 1967 for Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf. Taylor was well-known for her fundraising efforts for AIDS and HIV causes after she lost her close friend Rock Hudson to the disease in the 1980s.

ETaylor120107_04x.jpg Dame Elizabeth Taylor is in a Los Angeles hospital, reports the NY Post. The legendary actress was brought there yesterday from her Beverly Hills home, and there is no word yet on her condition, but it's being reported that the stress of losing Michael Jackson is really getting to her.

Cindy Adams at the NY Post reports that the Jackson family denied her access to their funeral pews and barred her from the events because "she was Michael's friend, not theirs." She's reportedly suffering "weakness, tiredness, exhaustion, emotional draining. She hasn't stopped crying. She and Michael were devoted to one another."

We hope she's okay!
