One of the last actresses from traditional Hollywood films was Elizabeth Taylor. She was married eight times and had four children over her six-decade career. After passing in 2011, her final spouse Larry Fortensky, shared additional information regarding their relationship and the inheritances she left him. He said Elizabeth was a wonderful wife and friend, and he would always treasure their time together. He continues that she was a remarkable woman with a heart of gold, and she will be deeply missed.
Elizabeth Taylor was born to American parents on February 27, 1932, in London, England. Her parents brought her back to the United States when World War II began so she could start a new life in Los Angeles. Elizabeth Taylor appeared in more than fifty movies during her acting career. She is regarded as one of Hollywood’s greatest actors from the Golden Age. At 79, Elizabeth Taylor passed away on March 23, 2011.
Elizabeth Taylor was one of Hollywood’s rare child stars who knew how to move into adulthood successfully. Although she had challenges along the way to fame, she overcame them to become one of her day’s most well-known movie actresses. She won the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award for her efforts with numerous humanitarian causes and two Best Actress in a Leading Role Academy Awards. One of her most recognizable roles is thought to have been in the movie Cleopatra.
Taylor was a very successful actress, but controversy frequently clouded her personal life. She had four children: Michael Wilding Jr., Chris Wilding, Liza Todd, and Maria Burton. She married seven different men throughout her eight weddings, twice to Richard Burton. Her most recent marriage was a five-year marriage to Larry Fortensky, which ended in divorce in 1996. She allegedly experienced accidents, scoliosis, and skin cancer in her final years. She reportedly underwent more than 30 surgeries in total. She was taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in 2011 with congestive heart failure. Six weeks later, on March 23, 2011, she passed suddenly.
Taylor had the good fortune to meet her children and grandkids in her Bel Air, Los Angeles, estate before she passed away. There are eleven grandchildren, many of whom work hard to carry on Taylor’s legacy. Elizabeth Taylor was renowned for her striking, lovely violet eyes resulting from a rare genetic abnormality. Quinn, her grandchild, has a similar piercing blue gaze to his grandma, as is evident just by glancing at him.
Elizabeth Taylor and Fortensky exchanged vows at Michael Jackson’s Neverland Ranch in 1991. Her maid of honor was the musician Carole Bayer Sage. The wedding reportedly cost roughly $1.6 million. Despite being one of Hollywood’s biggest stars, Elizabeth Taylor didn’t come off as a superficial individual who cared nothing about the rest of the world.
Taylor and Fortensky divorced in 1996. They remained close friends, frequently talking on the phone for hours. Taylor’s last phone contact occurred a day before she arrived at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles in February 2011. She was determined that she didn’t want to end their relationship on bad terms, even though it was she who wanted a divorce.
Elizabeth Taylor allegedly gave Fortensky more than $500,000 in her will to “honor their relationship.” In comparison, Fortensky departed their marriage with over $1 million. However, she left her four children with most of her wealth. The Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation received the revenues from the auctions of most of her jewels and colognes.
Despite the fact that Elizabeth Taylor is no longer with us, we will never forget their connection and all the fun moments they had together.
