    For most of my life, she was one of those people whose fame I didn't understand. She was just an old lady with too much makeup. Another one is Liza Minnelli. I still don't know what she's famous for.

    Liza is probably MOST famous for being Judy Garland's daughter.
    Liz was maybe the biggest movie actress of her time in terms of box-office.

    bye bye icon


    Liz's face is the one face the humans would choose to put a picture of in that satellite along with other iconic world examples of art and music and science, to show to the aliens.

    Liz is sort of like a Biker Donna.
    Or Donna is more like an EllieMae Liz.

    You choose.

    Liz Taylor's body is only like a 7.5. Donna was the whole shebang.

    Potato Potahto. I used to walk passed Donna's parents' house every day on my way to and from elementary school. I pined for the day she would be home to visit. [​IMG]

    Like Steven, with a ph, I never knew what the big deal was regarding Elizabeth Taylor, when I was growing up she fit the description Manton gave. I recently watched Cat on a Hot Tin Roof and I must say she was a smoking hot babe back in the day, very good actress as well.

    She was the Angelina Jolie of her day (more talent and beauty, however). She stole Eddie Fisher right out from under Debbie Reynolds a la Brad Pitt from Jennifer Aniston and it was an even bigger scandal because it was in the '50's.

    Not many Old Hollywood like her left anymore.

    I think in twenty years, Jennifer Lopez will be one of these people whose fame young people won't understand. All of her music sucks, and all of her movies suck, so everyone will wonder why her hip replacement is a story on Entertainment Tonight.

    I'm not sure you are, but if you're equating Elizabeth Taylor and JLo then you're way off. I honestly can't remember any of Lopez's films right now. Seriously. I kind of remember one where she was a maid and one where she was in a car trunk (?), but I can't think of a single movie title of hers.

    I get that you look at Taylor today and don't get her fame (well, not today [​IMG] ), but have you ever seen any of her movies? She was a genuinely good actress.

    OK, that's just crazy talk. Jenny-From-The-Block was brilliant in that one South Park episode, and her ass was amazing in Anaconda (plus that car trunk movie you're thinking of is Out of Sight and she was pretty good in that, and it was a good movie too).

    In the late 90s she followed Selena with a number of well-acted supporting roles in smaller Hollywood productions - Blood and Wine with Caine and Nicholson directed by Rafelson, U-Turn with Penn directed by Oliver Stone, Out of Sight, which is well known, and even The Cell was visually impressive torture porn. Then she tried to become Meg Ryan cum Cher from 2000 onwards, and her career has careened into reality TV hell since.

    If only she had stayed the sexy/ creepy girl getting pounded from behind by Nick Nolte instead of turning into Jenny from the Bronx...

    Oh, and RIP Liz.
