Some people say she’s the most beautiful person in the world but if you wouldn’t agree, at the very least, Elizabeth Taylor is one of the most iconic Hollywood legends of all time. With a career that spanned nearly five decades, you’ll soon learn that Liz Taylor collected starring roles, jewelry, and even more scandalously – husbands. You won’t even believe how old she was when she first got married!
This Is Not A Rags To Riches Story
Elizabeth Taylor was born on February 27, 1932, in London to Americans Francis Lenn Taylor, an art dealer, and Sara Sothern, a retired stage actress. Taylor and her older brother had a privileged upbringing, especially since their parents’ social circle included renowned artists and politicians. At the age of three, Taylor began horseback riding, a skill that would benefit the beginnings of her career as an actress. The onset of World War II forced the Taylors to relocate to the United States in 1939, eventually settling in Beverly Hills, California after Taylor’s father was able to open a new art gallery in Los Angeles.
