What was Elizabeth Taylor really like?
She was undoubtedly one of the most beautiful women ever.
She sizzled in the 1958 classic, ‘Cat On A Hot Tin Roof’, her violet eyes and petite frame won over countless husbands and, as Debbie Reynolds once said, she was “very much a woman’s woman. You just had to make sure you kept your husband in the garage if ever she came to visit.”
She died on this day 4 years ago but if she were alive today, legend Elizabeth Taylor would be ‘horrified’ at the HIV levels in gay men today .
That’s according to her granddaughter, Naomi deLuce Wilding.
The 40 year old stylist and Fashion Director of Issue Magazine wishes that Taylor would be pleased with the progress that’s been made, but said, “ultimately I don’t think so. If she were to hear that the highest rate of infection is still in young people aged between 24-35, and in particular amongst young gay men, even in this country, she would be horrified. A real complacency has set in and even before she died, when my grandmother was pretty ill, she was horrified to see that. Sadly I don’t think she had the strength to say what she really felt at that point.”
