Elizabeth Taylor Net Worth, Biography & Wiki 2017

English actress Dame Elizabeth Rosemond Taylor was born on the 27th February 1932, in Hampstead, London, England, regarded by some as one of the greatest actresses of all time, probably best recognized for starring in the role of Catherine Holly in “Suddenly, Last Summer” (1959), playing Gloria Wandrous in “Butterfield 8” (1960), and as Martha in “Who’s Afraid Of Virginia Woolf?” (1966). Her career was active from 1942 to 2007. She passed away in 2011.

So, have you ever wondered how rich Elizabeth Taylor was? According to authoritative sources, it was estimated that Elizabeth’s net worth at the impressive amount of $600 million at the time of her death, accumulated largely through her successful career as an actress. Other sources of her wealth came from the sales of her two best-selling perfumes – “Passion” and “White Diamonds”, and her own fashion company called House of Taylor. Additionally, one suspects that divorce settlements from her eight marriages may have contributed too.

Elizabeth Taylor was the daughter of Francis Lenn Taylor, an art dealer, and Sara Sothern, a stage actress; as her parents were Americans, she received dual citizenship at birth. She attended Byron House, a Montessori school, but when the family returned to Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, , she continued her education at Hawthorne School. Soon, under the influence of her mother, she began to pursue a career initially as a child actress, as her eyes were blue, almost violet sometimes, which drew audiences attention.

Elizabeth was spotted by John Cheever Cowdin, so auditioned at Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer and Universal Pictures, which offered her a contract in 1941, so making her debut appearance in “There’s One Born Every Minute” the following year, which marked the beginning of her net worth. Later, she signed a contract with MGM, and was cast as Priscilla in “Lassie Come Home” in 1943, and as “Jane Eyre” in the same year, which was followed the next year by appearances in such other film titles “National Velvet”, and “Father Of The Bride” (1950), among others.

Her popularity started expanding enormously when she was chosen for one of the leading roles in George Stevens’ film “A Place In The Sun” (1951), which became a commercial success. In the following year, Elizabeth starred in the role of Anastacia Macaboy in the romantic comedy “Love Is Better Than Ever”, after which she was cast in “Ivanhoe” in the same year. In 1956 she was cast as Leslie Lynnton Benedict in the film “Giant”, for which she won a Golden Globe Award for Special Achievement. From then, she lined up success after success, playing Susanna Drake in “Raintree County” in 1957, and as Maggie ‘The Cat’ Pollit in “Cat On A Hot Tin Roof” in 1958, both earning her a Laurel Award for Top Female Dramatic Performance. In the next year, she won Golden Globe Award for Best Actress – Motion Picture Drama for her performance as Catherine Holly in the film “Suddenly, Last Summer”, and in 1960, she won the Academy Award for Best Actress for starring in the role of Gloria Wandrous in “Butterfield 8”. All of these roles added a considerable amount to her net worth.

Elizabeth’s next big role came in 1963, when she appeared in the title role in the film “Cleopatra”, alongside her future husband Richard Burton, and three years later they appeared together in leading roles in “Who’s Afraid Of Virginia Woolf?”, which marked her whole acting career, as she won numerous awards, including the second Academy Award for Best Actress, BAFTA Award for Best Actress in a Leading Role, Laurel Award for Top Female Dramatic Performance, etc.

During the 1970s and 1980s, Elizabeth appeared in several prominent roles, including as Jimmie Rosie Probert in “Under Milk Wood”, portraying Barbara Sawyer in Larry Peerce’s film “Ash Wednesday”, and as Desiree Armfeldt in “A Little Night Music”. In 1981, she made her debut guest-appearance in the TV series “General Hospital”, as Helena Cassadine, and four years later, she starred in the role of Louella Parsons in the TV film “Malice In Wonderland”, and was selected to portray Madam Conti in the TV mini-series “North And South”. All of these roles increased her net worth by a large margin.

To speak further about her acting career, in the next decade, Elizabeth continued with guest-starring roles in such TV series as “Captain Planet And The Planeteers”, “The Nanny” and “Can’t Hurry Love” (1996), among others, increasing her net worth. Moreover, she landed a role in the 2001 film “These Old Broads”, and also did a voice-overs in several titles, including “The Simpsons” from 1992 to 1993, “High Society” in 1996, and “God, The Devil And Bob” in 2001. Her last performance was on the stage, when she appeared in the play “Love Letters” in 2007.

Thanks to her accomplishments in the film industry, Elizabeth Taylor was named seventh on the list of the Greatest American Screen Legends by the American Film Institute in 1999. She also received a Life Achievement Award.

Regarding her personal life, it was as expansive as her acting career. Elizabeth Taylor was married eight times to seven husbands; she married twice actor Richard Burton, firstly from 1964 to 1974, and later from 1975 to 1976. Her other husbands were Conrad Hilton, Jr. (1950-1951); Michael Wilding (1952-1957) with whom she had two children; Michael Todd (1957-1958) with whom she had one child; Eddie Fisher (1959-1964); John Warner (1976-1982); and Larry Fortensky (1991-1996).

Apart from her acting career, Elizabeth was also recognized as a philanthropist, and one of the first celebrities who established the American Foundation for AIDS Research in 1985, for which she was made a Knight of the French Legion of Honour two years later. She continued to help people with this problem and in 1993 launched the Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation, and in the same year won the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award for her efforts.

Elizabeth Taylor passed away from congestive heart failure at the age of 79, on the 23rd March 2011 in Los Angeles, California USA.

67Became friends with Marlon Brando while shooting Reflections in a Golden Eye (1967). Brando agreed to pick up her Best Actress Award for Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? (1966) from the New York Film Critics Circle. When Brando made his appearance at the NYFCC Award ceremony at Sardi's on January 29, 1967, he berated the critics, querying them as to why they hadn't recognized Liz before. He then flew to Dahomey, Africa, where she was shooting The Comedians (1967) with Richard Burton to personally deliver the award, a development Burton thought odd. Several years later Brando socialized with the Burtons, visiting them on their famous yacht the Kalizma, while they plied the Mediterreanean. Brando's ex-wife Anna Kashfi, in her book "Brando for Breakfast" (1979), claimed that Brando and Burton got into a fist fight aboard the yacht, probably over Liz, but nothing of the incident appears in Burton's voluminous diaries. In his diaries, Burton found Brando to be quite intelligent but believed he suffered, like Liz did, from becoming too famous too early in his life and believed their affinity for one another was based on this (both Liz and Marlon would later befriend Michael Jackson, another superstar-cum-legend who had become too famous too soon). Burton recognized Brando as a great actor, but felt he would have been more suited to silent films due to the deficiency in his voice (the famous "mumble"). As a silent film star, Burton believed Brando would have been the greatest motion picture actor ever.
68Was unable to attend the civil partnership ceremony of her friend Sir Elton John in England due to her illness. (December 2005)

72Her third husband Michael Todd gave her a 29-carat diamond ring during their marriage, a feat topped by fifth husband Richard Burton when he gave her the 69-carat "Burton-Cartier" (later renamed "Burton-Taylor") diamond. Fourth-husband Eddie Fisher said that a $50,000 diamond could keep Taylor happy for approximately four days.
73Auctioned off her diamond-and-emerald engagement ring from Richard Burton to raise money for an AIDS charity.
74In 1969, Richard Burton bought her one of the world's largest and most beautiful diamonds from the jeweler Cartier after losing an auction for the 69-carat, pear-shaped stone to the jeweler, who won with a $1-million bid. The rough diamond that would yield the prized stone weighed 244 carats and was found in 1966 at South Africa's Premier mine. Harry Winston cut and polished the diamond, which was put up for auction in 1969. Burton purchased the diamond from Cartier the next day for $1,069,000 to give to Taylor. The small premium was the result of the publicity Cartier garnered from selling the stone, then called the "Burton-Cartier Diamond," to the then "world's most famous couple." Ten years later, the twice-divorced-from-Burton Taylor herself auctioned off the "Burton-Taylor Diamond" to fund a hospital in Botswana. The last recorded sale of the Taylor-Burton was in 1979 for nearly $3,000,000 to an anonymous buyer in Saudi Arabia. The ring was the center of the classic Here's Lucy (1968) episode "Lucy Meets the Burtons," in which Lucy Carter, played by Lucille Ball, gets the famous ring stuck on her finger. The actual ring was used and the episode was the highest rated episode of the very popular series.

Irreconcilable differences were cited in the divorce court.
87The stories of her Oscar win for BUtterfield 8 (1960) have grown legendary. It is generally accepted as truth that she won Oscar voters by a vote of sympathy, because of the recent death of her husband, Michael Todd, and her near-fatal illness and emergency tracheotomy to save her life (her scar was very visible on Oscar night).

Todd had made a verbal agreement about this with MGM, but after his death, MGM forced Taylor to make BUtterfield 8 (1960) in order to fulfill the terms of her studio contract. As a result, Taylor refused to speak to the director for the entire production, and hated the film.

132Her obituary published in The New York Times was written by theater critic and cultural reporter Mel Gussow, who had died in 2005. The newspaper's obituary editor said the piece was "too good to throw away".
133Although Taylor was raised as a Christian Scientist, in 1959, at the age of 27, she converted to Judaism. She denied that her conversion was motivated by her marriages to Mike Todd or Eddie Fisher (both of whom were Jewish), saying that she had always been drawn to Judaism. Her conversion took place at Temple Israel of Hollywood, where she had studied Torah and Jewish history and traditions under Rabbi Max Nussbaum. It is traditional for converts to receive a Hebrew equivalent to their names upon conversion (since they wouldn't have received one shortly after birth, as those born into Judaism would have); Taylor's was Elisheba Rachel, Elisheba being the Hebrew for "Elizabeth," and Rachel being the name of Jacob's second wife in the Torah.
134On Monday evening, November 8, 2010, Andy Warhol's "Men in Her Life", a 1962 painting based on an image of Elizabeth Taylor between husbands, was auctioned at Phillips de Pury & Company's new salesroom on Park Avenue in New York City. An unidentified bidder bought it for $63.3 million.

174Underwent radiation therapy in 2002 for basal cell carcinoma, a form of skin cancer.
175Cancelled her appearance at the Cannes Film Festival, prompting renewed fears about her health. The acting legend usually attends an annual charity dinner organized by the American Foundation For AIDS Research (AMFAR), which always coincides with the South of France festival. However, Taylor - who also pulled out in 2004 due to health problems - was replaced by Sharon Stone and Liza Minnelli at the gala. (May 2005)
176In 2006, she introduced a line of diamond and precious stone jewelry called "House of Taylor". The designs are said to be inspired by certain favorite pieces in her own collection. She actually wrote a book on jewelry and is considered to be an authority on the subject.
177Became friends with Marlon Brando while shooting Reflections in a Golden Eye (1967). Brando agreed to pick up her Best Actress Award for Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? (1966) from the New York Film Critics Circle. When Brando made his appearance at the NYFCC Award ceremony at Sardi's on January 29, 1967, he berated the critics, querying them as to why they hadn't recognized Liz before. He then flew to Dahomey, Africa, where she was shooting The Comedians (1967) with Richard Burton to personally deliver the award, a development Burton thought odd. Several years later Brando socialized with the Burtons, visiting them on their famous yacht the Kalizma, while they plied the Mediterreanean. Brando's ex-wife Anna Kashfi, in her book "Brando for Breakfast" (1979), claimed that Brando and Burton got into a fist fight aboard the yacht, probably over Liz, but nothing of the incident appears in Burton's voluminous diaries. In his diaries, Burton found Brando to be quite intelligent but believed he suffered, like Liz did, from becoming too famous too early in his life and believed their affinity for one another was based on this (both Liz and Marlon would later befriend Michael Jackson, another superstar-cum-legend who had become too famous too soon). Burton recognized Brando as a great actor, but felt he would have been more suited to silent films due to the deficiency in his voice (the famous "mumble"). As a silent film star, Burton believed Brando would have been the greatest motion picture actor ever.
178Was unable to attend the civil partnership ceremony of her friend Sir Elton John in England due to her illness. (December 2005)
1791976: Won the title of "Most Memorable Eyebrows" in a magazine poll. The first runner up was Lassie.
180Writer Charles Bukowski, in his newspaper column (and later book) "Notes of a Dirty Old Man", revealed that he loathed Taylor as an absurd icon of the celebrity-mad, media-besotted American culture that he despised.
181She was awarded Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire by Queen Elizabeth II at the 2000 New Year's Honours List for her services to drama.
182Her third husband Michael Todd gave her a 29-carat diamond ring during their marriage, a feat topped by fifth husband Richard Burton when he gave her the 69-carat "Burton-Cartier" (later renamed "Burton-Taylor") diamond. Fourth-husband Eddie Fisher said that a $50,000 diamond could keep Taylor happy for approximately four days.
183Auctioned off her diamond-and-emerald engagement ring from Richard Burton to raise money for an AIDS charity.
184In 1969, Richard Burton bought her one of the world's largest and most beautiful diamonds from the jeweler Cartier after losing an auction for the 69-carat, pear-shaped stone to the jeweler, who won with a $1-million bid. The rough diamond that would yield the prized stone weighed 244 carats and was found in 1966 at South Africa's Premier mine. Harry Winston cut and polished the diamond, which was put up for auction in 1969. Burton purchased the diamond from Cartier the next day for $1,069,000 to give to Taylor. The small premium was the result of the publicity Cartier garnered from selling the stone, then called the "Burton-Cartier Diamond," to the then "world's most famous couple." Ten years later, the twice-divorced-from-Burton Taylor herself auctioned off the "Burton-Taylor Diamond" to fund a hospital in Botswana. The last recorded sale of the Taylor-Burton was in 1979 for nearly $3,000,000 to an anonymous buyer in Saudi Arabia. The ring was the center of the classic Here's Lucy (1968) episode "Lucy Meets the Burtons," in which Lucy Carter, played by Lucille Ball, gets the famous ring stuck on her finger. The actual ring was used and the episode was the highest rated episode of the very popular series.
185She and Richard Burton starred together in 11 movies: Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? (1966), The V.I.P.s (1963), Under Milk Wood (1972), The Taming of the Shrew (1967), The Sandpiper (1965), Hammersmith Is Out (1972), Doctor Faustus (1967), Divorce His - Divorce Hers (1973), The Comedians (1967), Cleopatra (1963) and Boom! (1968). She had an uncredited cameo in Burton's film Anne of the Thousand Days (1969).
186Along with Mark Hamill and Joe Mantegna, she was one of only three actors to play both themselves and a fictional character in The Simpsons (1989). She supplied the voice of Maggie Simpson in the Season Four episode "Lisa's First Word" and portrayed herself in the Season Four episode "Krusty Gets Kancelled".
187She was (along with Marisa Berenson) co-matron of honor at Liza Minnelli's and David Gest's wedding.

195She was voted the 11th Greatest Movie Star of all time by Entertainment Weekly.
196The premiere of her film Father of the Bride (1950) took place two days after her real-life marriage to Conrad Hilton Jr.. The publicity surrounding the event is credited with helping to make the film so successful. The marriage lasted as long as the 3 month European honeymoon. Irreconcilable differences were cited in the divorce court.
197The stories of her Oscar win for BUtterfield 8 (1960) have grown legendary. It is generally accepted as truth that she won Oscar voters by a vote of sympathy, because of the recent death of her husband, Michael Todd, and her near-fatal illness and emergency tracheotomy to save her life (her scar was very visible on Oscar night). Wisecracker and Rat Pack member Shirley MacLaine, who was favored to win for her role in The Apartment (1960), said afterwards that "I lost out to a tracheotomy."
198She was mentioned in the song "Lady Nina" by the rock band Marillion.

204Has owned some of the world's most magnificent jewelry, including the 33-carat "Krupp Diamond", the Duchess of Windsor diamond brooch, the Grand Duchess of Russia emeralds, the "LaPeregina Pearl" (which was a Valentine present to her from Richard Burton), and the famous pear-shaped 69-carat "Burton-Cartier Diamond" Burton gave her in 1969 (subsequently renamed the "Burton-Taylor Diamond.").

They liked each other right away. Clift used to call her "Bessie Mae". When he had a car accident a few years later that disfigured him, he had just left a party at Liz's house. It was she who found him first, got into the wreck and removed some teeth from his throat that threatened to choke him.

Quotes

#Quote
1Straight sex, gay sex, bisexual sex, use a condom whoever you are.
2[on BUtterfield 8 (1960)] [for which she received the Oscar for Best Actress] A piece of shit.
3(On Cleopatra (1963)) They had cut out the heart, the essence, the motivations, the very core, and tacked on all those battle scenes. It should have been about three large people, but it lacked reality and passion. I found it vulgar.
4I hate being called "Liz", because it can sound like such a hiss.
5[on Michael Jackson] He is one of the most normal people I know.
6I've come through things that would have felled an ox. That fills me with optimism, not just for myself but for our particular species.
7The ups and downs, the problems and stress, along with all the happiness, have given me optimism and hope because I am living proof of survival.
8I have the emotions of a child in the body of a woman. I was rushed into womanhood for the movies. It caused me long moments of unhappiness and doubt.
9I don't entirely approve of some of the things I have done, or am, or have been. But I'm me. God knows, I'm me.
10[on her conversion to Judaism] It had absolutely nothing to do with my past marriage to Mike [Todd] or my upcoming marriage to Eddie Fisher, both of whom were Jewish. It was something I had wanted to do for a long time.
11Richard came on the set and sort of sidled over to me and said: "Has anybody ever told you that you're a very pretty girl?" 'I thought, Oy gevalt, the great lover, the great wit, the great Welsh intellectual, and he comes out with a corny line like that! But then I noticed his hands were shaking as if he had Saturday night palsy. He had the worst hangover I'd ever seen. And he was obviously terrified of me. I just took pity on him. I realized he really was human. That was the beginning of our affair.
12[on the death of Michael Jackson] I just don't believe that Michael would want me to share my grief with millions of others. How I feel is between us. Not a public event.
13I will love Michael Jackson forever. (On Michael Jackson's death)
14[on Marilyn Monroe] She seemed to have a kind of unconscious glow about her physical self that was innocent, like a child. When she posed nude, it was 'Gee, I am kind of, you know, sort of dishy,' like she enjoyed it without being egotistical.
15[on Montgomery Clift] Monty was the most emotional actor I have ever worked with. And it is contagious.
16[on Clark Gable] He was the epitome of the movie star -- so romantic, such bearing, such friendliness.
17[on John Wayne] He is as tough as an old nut and as soft as a yellow ribbon.
18[on Michael Wilding] I'm afraid in those last few years I gave him a rather rough time. Sort of henpecked him and probably wasn't mature enough for him. It wasn't that we had anything to fight over. We just weren't happy.
19[on Michael Jackson] He is part of my heart. We would do anything for each other.
20I, along with the critics, have never taken myself very seriously.
21I believe in mind over matter and doing anything you set your mind on.
22If someone's dumb enough to offer me a million dollars to make a picture, I'm certainly not dumb enough to turn it down.
23[on John Wayne] His image had as much impact in the world as many of our presidents have had, but Duke was a great actor, a great humanitarian, but always himself. To be a friend was a lifetime thing.
24[on Michael Jackson] What is a genius? What is a living legend? What is a mega star? Michael Jackson - that's all. And when you think you know him, he gives you more . . . I think he is one of the finest people to hit this planet, and, in my estimation, he is the true King of Pop, Rock and Soul.
25[2005] There's still so much more to do. I can't sit back and be complacent, and none of us should be. I get around now in a wheelchair, but I get around.
26[2005] Acting is, to me now, artificial. Seeing people suffer is real. It couldn't be more real. Some people don't like to look at it in the face because it's painful. But if nobody does, then nothing gets done.
27[on Eddie Fisher] I'm not taking anything away from Debbie [Debbie Reynolds] because she never really had it.
28You find out who your real friends are when you're involved in a scandal.
29[About Montgomery Clift] The most gorgeous thing in the world and easily one of the best actors.
30One problem with people who have no vices is that they're pretty sure to have some annoying virtues.
31I don't remember much about Cleopatra (1963). There were a lot of other things going on.
32Some of my best leading men have been dogs and horses.
33Success is a great deodorant. It takes away all your past smells.
34[on her weight fluctuations] When you're fat, the world is divided into two groups - people who bug you and people who leave you alone. The funny thing is, supporters and saboteurs exist in either camp.
35[Cannes, May 2001] If not to make the world better, what is money for?
36I don't pretend to be an ordinary housewife.
37My mother says I didn't open my eyes for eight days after I was born, but when I did, the first thing I saw was an engagement ring. I was hooked.
38I had a hollow leg. I could drink everyone under the table and not get drunk. My capacity was terrifying.
39[on turning 53 years old] I think I'm finally growing up - and about time.
40I hate being called "Liz", because it can sound like such a hiss.
41[on Michael Jackson] He is one of the most normal people I know.
42I've come through things that would have felled an ox. That fills me with optimism, not just for myself but for our particular species.
43The ups and downs, the problems and stress, along with all the happiness, have given me optimism and hope because I am living proof of survival.
44I have the emotions of a child in the body of a woman. I was rushed into womanhood for the movies. It caused me long moments of unhappiness and doubt.
45I don't entirely approve of some of the things I have done, or am, or have been. But I'm me. God knows, I'm me.
46[on her conversion to Judaism] had absolutely nothing to do with my past marriage to Mike [Todd] or my upcoming marriage to Eddie Fisher, both of whom were Jewish. It was something I had wanted to do for a long time.
47Richard came on the set and sort of sidled over to me and said: "Has anybody ever told you that you're a very pretty girl?" 'I thought, Oy gevalt, the great lover, the great wit, the great Welsh intellectual, and he comes out with a corny line like that! But then I noticed his hands were shaking as if he had Saturday night palsy. He had the worst hangover I'd ever seen. And he was obviously terrified of me. I just took pity on him. I realized he really was human. That was the beginning of our affair.
48[on the death of Michael Jackson] I just don't believe that Michael would want me to share my grief with millions of others. How I feel is between us. Not a public event.
49I will love Michael Jackson forever. (On Michael Jackson's death)
50[on Marilyn Monroe] She seemed to have a kind of unconscious glow about her physical self that was innocent, like a child. When she posed nude, it was 'Gee, I am kind of, you know, sort of dishy,' like she enjoyed it without being egotistical.
51[on Montgomery Clift] Monty was the most emotional actor I have ever worked with. And it is contagious.
52[on Clark Gable] He was the epitome of the movie star -- so romantic, such bearing, such friendliness.
53[on John Wayne] He is as tough as an old nut and as soft as a yellow ribbon.
54[on Michael Wilding] I'm afraid in those last few years I gave him a rather rough time. Sort of henpecked him and probably wasn't mature enough for him. It wasn't that we had anything to fight over. We just weren't happy.
55[on Michael Jackson] He is part of my heart. We would do anything for each other.
56I, along with the critics, have never taken myself very seriously.
57I believe in mind over matter and doing anything you set your mind on.
58If someone's dumb enough to offer me a million dollars to make a picture, I'm certainly not dumb enough to turn it down.
59[on John Wayne] His image had as much impact in the world as many of our presidents have had, but Duke was a great actor, a great humanitarian, but always himself. To be a friend was a lifetime thing.
60[on Michael Jackson] What is a genius? What is a living legend? What is a mega star? Michael Jackson - that's all. And when you think you know him, he gives you more . . . I think he is one of the finest people to hit this planet, and, in my estimation, he is the true King of Pop, Rock and Soul.
61[2005] There's still so much more to do. I can't sit back and be complacent, and none of us should be. I get around now in a wheelchair, but I get around.
62[2005] Acting is, to me now, artificial. Seeing people suffer is real. It couldn't be more real. Some people don't like to look at it in the face because it's painful. But if nobody does, then nothing gets done.
63[on Eddie Fisher] I'm not taking anything away from Debbie [Debbie Reynolds] because she never really had it.

65[About Montgomery Clift] The most gorgeous thing in the world and easily one of the best actors.
