Elizabeth Taylor has died.
The two-time Oscar-winning actress passed away at L.A.’s Cedars-Sinai Medical Center from congestive heart failure.
Her children were at her bedside.
Her son Michael Wilding said in a statement, “My mother was an extraordinary woman who lived life to the fullest, with great passion, humor, and love. Though her loss is devastating to those of us who held her so close and so dear, we will always be inspired by her enduring contribution to our world.”

She went on to star in such films as Butterfield 8, Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, and Cleopatra for which she became the first actress to be paid $1 million.
In later years, Taylor devoted much of her energies to AIDS research.
