The last true Hollywood diva
Elizabeth Taylor was a diva when that word still had meaning, before it was applied to every female celebrity with slightest bit of attitude and style. She was also one of the first actors to be raised to celebrity status by the media for the dramatic conflicts of her personal life as much as for any thespian achievements on the screen. In a time when studios controlled the news that was fed to the media about their valuable properties, Taylor’s expansive personality and rollercoaster personal life was way too extravagant and exciting to be contained by the spin doctors of Hollywood.
