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.
