Elizabeth Taylor dead at 79

Actress Elizabeth Taylor has died, her publicist told CNN. She was 79.

The two-time Oscar winner died "peacefully today in Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles," said a statement from her publicist. She was hospitalized six weeks ago with congestive heart failure, "a condition with which she had struggled for many years. Though she had recently suffered a number of complications, her condition had stabilized and it was hoped that she would be able to return home. Sadly, this was not to be."

    I only ever knew her as that woman who was a movie star, but her career was overshadowed by her various failed marriages. No disrespect, but that's probably my generations point of view outside the entertainment industry (Gen X). I am sure she was a great actress. Perhaps I will go check out a few of her films.
