Born Elizabeth Rosemond "Liz" Taylor on February 27, 1932 in Hampstead Garden Suburb, United Kingdom, she is considered one of the greatest screen actresses of Hollywood's "Golden Age". Elizabeth Taylor (aka Dame Elizabeth Taylor) was one of the world's most famous film stars, recognized for her acting ability and for her glamorous lifestyle, beauty, lavish jewels and distinctive dark blue eyes, often described as violet.

Taylor and Burton appeared together in 11 films, including Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? (1966), for which Taylor won a second Academy Award. Starting in the mid-1970s, she appeared less frequently in film, and made only occasional appearances in television and theatre. Her much-publicized personal life included eight marriages and several life-threatening illnesses. From the mid-1980s, Taylor championed HIV and AIDS programs; she co-founded the American Foundation for AIDS Research in 1985 and the Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation in 1993.
