Really, if it were not for the reality of the actress Elizabeth Taylor, it should invent. For without this extraordinarily beautiful woman with violet eyes, velvety eyebrows, bright (and add - scandalous) character is difficult to imagine the history of Hollywood.

. The closest friend of the deceased - singer Eddie Fisher was the latest 'victim' beauties. But this time, America was outraged: for Taylor Fisher went to a loud divorce with actress Debbie Reynolds.
But mistaken by those who think that violent novels Elizabeth hindered her creative career.
