Elizabeth Taylor was an outstanding entertainer who was famous for many things, including her striking beauty, fashion sense, business skills, and philanthropic efforts, as well as being a one-of-a-kind super model. She became the first female actress to earn $1 million for her role in “Cleopatra” following her performance in the film.
As a result of her many years of devoted service to the business, she eventually ascended to the position of influential matriarch in Hollywood. Another fascinating truth about the celebrity is that she was married to seven different men.
Taylor’s romantic endeavours were often in the spotlight; she tied the knot eight times, including twice with the same guy, Richard Burton. Her loved ones had a different impression of her despite what the outside world thought of her.
The actress known for her role in “Cleopatra” was a wonderful parent to her four children, namely Michael Wilding Jr., Chris Wilding, Liza Todd, and Maria Burton.
She also had eleven grandchildren, all of whom she adored and inspired with her sense of fashion: Laela, Naomi, Caleb, Andrew, Tarquin, Lowell Wilding, Rhys and Quinn Tivey, Elizabeth Carson (adopted), and Richard McKeown.
The year before, at the celebration of Women’s History Month throughout the globe, two of Michael Wilding Jr.’s grandchildren, who had the opportunity to see their grandmother show love to their family, spoke fondly of their grandma.
During their conversation one of the ladies, named Naomi, reminisced about the day she saw her grandma get dressed while sitting on the floor of her grandmother’s dressing room. According to Naomi, Taylor’s status as a famous person did not prevent her from being an excellent grandma.
She had a warm and kind personality. The actress remarked that she enjoyed her part in real life just as much as the one she did in movies. Being a grandmother, Taylor did not treat or indulge her grandsons. Her granddaughter acknowledged that she enjoyed instilling in them a sense of family responsibility.
In her words: “She was under the impression that it was her job to bring up the younger members of the family, which is something you should know. It was very essential for her to make sure that those principles were taught in all of us.”
The performer showed the same level of fervor behind the scenes as she did in front of the cameras, it was verified by Naomi that one of her grandmother’s guiding principles was “the concept of following your heart and being loyal to whatever love you have – to not be frightened of being wounded.”
Taylor was devoted to her family and made sure her significant others knew how she felt about them. Her granddaughter had come upon some love letters and photos that had never been seen before.
She extended out to individuals who were ill and in need, in addition to treating those who were close to her with an open heart and compassion. Her beliefs expanded to include a commitment to action and to the idea that one can make the world a better place.
On March 23, 2011, the pioneering actress passed away after a long battle with cancer.
Michael, the actress’s son spoke highly of his mother’s accomplishments in the film industry, business, and activism, and he claimed that her legacy will endure.
In spite of the fact that Quinn did not inherit his grandmother’s acting talent, the two of them had a lot in common, including their eyes and their enthusiasm for charitable work. Quinn Todd, the oldest child of Liza Todd, spent his childhood in a small village distant from Hollywood.
Despite this, he and his sister Taylor made sure to spend quality time together as a family, especially during the winter vacations. At home, she was just his grandmother, and she won the hearts of everyone she met by showering them with affection.
One of his most treasured memories is of them watching television together. He quipped: “She would provide me guidance when we were lying in bed together, watching movies and having conversations. These are some of the aspects about her that stick out in my mind the most.”
Quinn continues to draw motivation from the historical person, despite the passage of time that has passed since her passing.
According to him, his grandma “was never hesitant to speak her thoughts while always behaving with bravery and compassion,” no matter what she was confronted with. He added: “I find that to be quite motivational.”
This has been shown by Quinn’s unwavering commitment to activism; he serves as a trustee for Elizabeth Taylor’s AIDS Foundation, has continued the work that she began, and is convinced that she would be pleased with his accomplishments.
