Eliz­a­beth Tay­lor in Giant

British-born movie leg­end Eliz­a­beth Tay­lor, famed for her vio­let eyes and many romances (eight mar­riages, seven hus­bands), died Wednes­day at Cedars-Sinai Med­ical Cen­ter in Los Ange­les. She was 79.

Tay­lor was sur­rounded by her four chil­dren when she died of con­ges­tive heart fail­ure. She had been hos­pi­tal­ized for about six weeks, pub­li­cist Sally Mor­ri­son said.

She won an Oscar for her scorch­ing por­trayal of an alco­holic shrew in Who’s Afraid of Vir­ginia Woolf?. In the movie, she was in a passive-aggressive mar­riage oppo­site Richard Bur­ton, her real-life hus­band — whom she mar­ried twice. A sec­ond Acad­emy Award went for her por­trayal of a call girl in But­ter­field 8.
