In Memoriam: Elizabeth Taylor

Convicted pervert, Elizabeth “Lawrence” Taylor, passed away today in Los Angeles.

The many faces of beauty, Elizabeth "Lawrence" Taylor

Elizabeth Taylor, or “LT” as her friends called her, will avoid the 6 years of probation from her recent conviction on sexual misconduct and patronizing a prostitute charges. These charges, alongside numerous arrests for attempted possession of crack-cocaine were an ugly scar on one of old Hollywood’s most beloved starlets.

Her star making turn came in the 1955 picture Giant, for which she was nominated for the Academy Award for best actress. She followed it up with roles in Raintree County, Cat On A Hot Tin Roof, and Butterfield 8, for which she won her first Best Actress Oscar.

Liz won her second Oscar in 1966 for a wonderfully nuanced performance in Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?. Later films include The Only Game in Town opposite Warren Beatty, a brief cameo in The Waterboy and a small but highly praised role in Any Given Sunday.

Elizabeth “Lawrence” Taylor is truly an iconic figure, a symbol of a lost era of Hollywood grandeur. Her love of diamonds and jewels was notorious and is said to have only been matched by her enthusiasm for bone jarring sacks and uncut cocaine. She will truly be missed.
