I don’t know, I’m literally the most awkward, socially strange person.

When I lose my temper, honey, you can`t find it any place.

Happy Birthday Elizabeth Taylor!

(27 February 1932 - 23 March 2011)

Here’s a girl on the big screen - bigger than life - idolized in thousands upon thousands of dark theatres all over the world by men and women,some who want to emulate her, some who lover her, a fantasy, a dream. But she is also so vulnerable that she could easily be hurt. Vulnerability is a counterpart of humility, and Elizabeth really was a humble person. That’s one of the things that made her such a great star One could ask, well, who could hurt Elizabeth Taylor? She has wealth, she’s affluent, she has men, she’s a power, a turret, a fortress. But she wasn’t, and the audience knew it. It came out of the screen, this vulnerability, and the audience reached out her and wanted to protect her. That was Elizabeth.
