Elizabeth Taylor Biography

Elizabeth Taylor born Elizabeth Rosemond Taylor, was a British-American actress, businesswoman, and humanitarian. She was born on February 27th, 1932 in London to American parents, Sara Viola Warmbrodt (Sara Sothern) and Francis Lenn Taylor.

Her mother, Sara, was a former stage actor and her father, Francis, an art dealer. As soon as she could walk she was given ballet lessons, and at the age of three she danced with her class in front of the royal family. In 1939, a few months before the outbreak of war, the family moved to Hollywood, where her father opened an art gallery much patronised by the film colony.

She made her screen debut, at the age of 10, in There’s One Born Every Minute (1942), at Universal. However, it was MGM who launched her career proper with Lassie Come Home (1943), and for whom most of her films were made. When Sara Taylor heard that the studio was looking for a young girl to play Velvet Brown, who wins the Grand National disguised as a boy in National Velvet (1945), she brought her daughter to see the producer Pandro S Berman. He thought her too thin and fragile for the part, although she could ride well. But three months later, after rigid training from her mother, she was able to change Berman’s mind.

Elizabeth Taylor has been in eight marriages. Her debut marriage was to Nicky Hilton (Conrad Hilton, Jr.), heir to the Hilton Hotels chain, at the Church of the Good Shepherd in Beverly Hills on May 6, 1950. She was 18 when she married Nicky. She was granted a divorce in January 1951, eight months after their wedding.

Taylor married her second husband, British actor Michael Wilding—a man 20 years her senior—in a low-key ceremony at Caxton Hall in London on February 21, 1952. She had first met him in 1948 while filming The Conspirator in England, and their relationship began when she returned to film Ivanhoe in 1951. They had two sons, Michael Howard (born January 6, 1953) and Christopher Edward (born February 27, 1955). Taylor and Wilding announced their separation in July 1956, and were divorced in January 1957.

Taylor married her third husband, theater and film producer Mike Todd, in Acapulco, Mexico, on February 2, 1957.They had one daughter, Elizabeth “Liza” Frances (born August 6, 1957). Mike Todd’s death in a plane crash on March 22, 1958, left Taylor devastated. She was comforted by Todd’s and her friend, singer Eddie Fisher, with whom she soon began an affair.[178] As Fisher was still married to actress Debbie Reynolds, the affair resulted in a public scandal, with Taylor being branded a “homewrecker”. Taylor and Fisher were married at the Temple Beth Sholom in Las Vegas on May 12, 1959.

While filming Cleopatra in Italy in 1962, Taylor began an affair with her co-star, Welsh actor Richard Burton, although Burton was also married. Taylor was granted a divorce from Fisher on March 6, 1964, in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, and married Burton nine days later in a private ceremony at the Ritz-Carlton Montreal. They divorced for the first time in June 1974, but reconciled and remarried in Kasane, Botswana, on October 10, 1975. The second marriage lasted less than a year, ending in divorce in July 1976.

Soon after her final divorce from Burton, Taylor met her sixth husband, John Warner, a Republican politician from Virginia. They were married on December 4, 1976. Taylor and Warner separated in December 1981, and divorced a year later in November 1982.

After the divorce from Warner, Taylor was engaged to Mexican lawyer Victor Luna in 1983–1984 and New York businessman Dennis Stein in 1985.

She met her seventh and last husband, construction worker Larry Fortensky, at the Betty Ford Center in 1988. They were married at the Neverland Ranch of her longtime friend Michael Jackson on October 6, 1991. Taylor and Fortensky divorced in October 1996.
