American actress. Filmed in the movies: "Cat on a hot roof, Baterfild, 8" (Oscar), "Cleopatra", "Who is Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" (Oscar), " The Taming of the Shrew ", etc.

Elizabeth Taylor was born February 27, 1932 in Hampstead, in a beautiful suburb of London. One legend says that when a newborn has opened their eyes, they zablesteli as two amethyst in the depth of the cradle. His father, Francis Taylor, was the seller of paintings and antiques. His mother, Sarah, worked as an actress before marriage.

In 1939 the family moved to California. Sarah spend long hours, Elizabeth nataskivaya to screen. She played the piano scales, trained daughter of good manners. The painting "Every minute someone is born" was the debut for the nine Liz.

In eleven years, Taylor entered into a contract with the influential American studio Metro-Goldvin-Mayer, and in twelve subsided in his fifth movie ( "loess returns home").

"In my childhood I was trying to seek friends among their peers - said Elizabeth, - and desperately hoping that the friends of my brother would take me with them, but they did not want to ... And when I tried to become invisible, mingle with the crowd, do not go, I will still be allocated. I was already famous, and looked older than his age. When I was fifteen years old, I played a 18-year-old and met with men to thirty and over ... "

May 6, 1950 the first husband of Elizabeth Taylor became a millionaire Nick Hilton, son of the owner of the world famous hotel chain. Studio MGM "timed to coincide with the date of this release movie" Father of the bride. " So the actress became the owner of a large number of stock car "Cadillac", a wedding ring valued at 50 thousand dollars and luxurious furs norkovyh ...

However, with Hylton, she was able to withstand just about a year - he was an alcoholic.

After the first divorce, Elizabeth Taylor, in twenty years, falls in love with Michael Uindinga, four decades of the English actor. This marriage has been more durable and lasted five years - from 1952 to 1957. Elizabeth Taylor gave birth to two sons. In the years of living together with "an absolute gentleman" actress filmed intensively in the movies, and she almost had no time for family.

According to her screen work of the period ( "Rhapsody", "handsome Brammel," "Giant," "District Reyntri") marked the extent of the film to the film is growing skills actress.

Without a special education does not always speak the stage tricks, crafts, Taylor intuitively guess how to conduct themselves in a situation of its heroine ...

In the movie "Rhapsody" (1953)-Elizabeth Lulu distinguished so that the twenty-five times changed their luxurious restrooms. The natural beauty of Elizabeth Taylor, it was necessary to stress the impressive attire. The picture was a success.

For the role of beautiful yuzhanki in the movie "District Reyntri" Elizabeth won its first nomination for the Oscar. "

The third husband of the actress in 1957, became a Hollywood producer Michael Todd. With his light hand of the name Liz Taylor was named the theater, and the joint lives of these people was like a holiday. The third marriage is the fate of released just a year and a half. Michael, who was twenty-five years older than Elizabeth, tragically died under the debris of the burning plane, and presented to his wife in her honor called "Happy Liz." The cruel irony of fate ...

In memory of their love has a girl, also named after the mother. When Elizabeth Taylor was awaiting the birth of her daughter, the doctors were very concerned for her life. Shortly before the birth actress endured a heavy operation on the spine. Affected by an old injury as early as childhood. At the film Elizabeth, fell from a horse. Doctors advised her to abort, but she firmly refused. The birth of her daughter dalos heavy price. Of the state of depression and loneliness has been able to bring a young Elizabeth Taylor, singer Eddie Fisher, a friend of her late husband. In 1959, he became her fourth husband.

Shortly before the death of Elizabeth Todd start screen shot in Tennessee Williams′ plays "Cat on a hot roof." Taylor created a wonderful image of his wife, Maggie Politt temptress. Her interpretation of this complex of psychological role was convincing and impeccably executed.

Not surprisingly, what Taylor was presented in 1959 to the Award "Oscar". But she was not forgiven with Eddie Fisher. When it became clear that Fisher′s ex-wife actress Debbie Reynold is not an angel, the American press has rushed to defend Liz Taylor. As a result, she did received "Oscar" in 1960, however, for another film - "Batterfild, 8. Liz refused removed in this picture, where she was ugotovana role of the "call girls", but the producers of "MGM" threatened her excommunication from the cinematography.

We had to agree.

Fischer was accompanied throughout his new wife. At that time, began shooting the film "Cleopatra," and Taylor has made that he also paid a salary - U.S. $ 1200 per month.

During the execution of the role of Cleopatra Elizabeth was paid enormous fees - a million dollars. By now it was tight condition actresses.

The movie "Cleopatra" (1963) for kinofirmy "XX Century - Fox became the most expensive. The story began with the signing of the contract. Suddenly, all Taylor categorically stated its refusal shot in America. She was not satisfied large tax levies. Producer and director, had to obey, and the filming was moved to London. Scenery constructed in Hollywood, had been destroyed, despite the fact that they spent 300 thousand dollars. Directed by Ruben Mamulyan, starts shooting the movie and spend $ 5 million for only 15 minutes, the screen was replaced by Joseph Mankevichem - at the request of Taylor.

Before experienced, talented kinomasterom has been given the task - to finish shooting for fifteen weeks. However, they stretched to two years. Overall, for shooting "Cleopatra" took about four years. Actress ill hardest by pneumonia, then shooting the film transferred to Italy. In Rome, the third time beginning the construction of the same scenery ...

Superkoloss "Cleopatra" Elizabeth Taylor has brought together and the English actor Richard Burton. Barton was married to actress Sybil, he had two children. But that did not stop the lovers. To get a divorce, March 15, 1964 Taylor and Barton come into a new marriage. They adopt a girl from the orphanage.

Richard told Elisabeth: "You′re a real dramatic actress and not to forget about it. You have a talent which should be valued and who have one ... You′re more than a star! "

Together with Elizabeth, they took part in a film that brought him recognition: "Hotel" Internationale, "The Taming of the Shrew," "Comedianta," "Boom," "Who is Afraid of Virginia Woolf ?"...

In the film Mike Nichols′ Who is Afraid of Virginia Woolf? "Actor duo of Taylor - Barton presented the spectacle of surprising strength. Perhaps never before had not played on the screen with such passion double tragedy - excruciatingly-painful family life, where the heroes of love and hate, ready to murder a partner but do not imagine themselves without each other ...

In order to enter into a, actress recovered 10 kilograms, has changed the tone of voice and postarela "for 17 years: a beautiful, without a wrinkle face turned into a gummy from drunkenness ugly mask scum.

Late 1960′s proved remarkably fruitful in the life of Elizabeth. It is as if set out to continually surprise and the audience and critics. Those who have watched with admiration for the tragic actor, could not reach an amazement of seeing her Catarino in Shakespeare′s comedy "The Taming of the Shrew" Dzeffirelli. March deleting an old age woman, has given way to mischievous, young and headstrong girl, with puerility and blusterous resistant onslaught Petrucci (Richard Burton). It seemed that every artist is subject. Her heroine, charming and ugly, the noble and cunning, sequence took place on the screen, each time forcing the audience to admire her creative range.

However, if the career of four evolved quite well, the same could be said about their personal lives. Gradually, their predilection for drinking has become a long and sometimes ugly deeply. After another РїСЊСЏРЅРєРё they have decided to divorce ...

Elizabeth and Richard breed twice and twice-married, intuitively feeling that live and work without each other they are very hard. The first marriage of Elizabeth and Richard lasted ten years - from 1964 to 1974, the second - only one year - from 1975 to 1976-th. And the divine Liz acknowledged that panic is afraid of the day when it will be without Richard Burton: "Every day I was waiting for the danger of losing it. He needed me, so I was happy ... It is the center of my life ... "

Although the personal life of Taylor after the divorce from Richard Barton "fell", as claimed by Liz herself, a few months, she married a rich and clever, John Warner.

Charming slender gentleman with impeccable manners, a prominent Republican Party will nominate its candidate in the Senate and in 1978 will be elected. Next to him - the beloved star of the American people. Their long-term pre-trip to the cities of America has made an unforgettable impression on voters.

The actress has strong will to throw its weight from 75 kilograms to more than 57 - painful struggle, which she described in her book "Elizabeth Taylor dropping weight", published in 1987.

A terrible blow to the death of Elizabeth was Richard Burton. Its nervous system, podtochennaya a large number of alcohol was so depleted that the question of life and death ...
