Elizabeth Taylor Had Extra Eyelashes

Long before Latisse or any of the other eyelash lengthening potions were developed, Elizabeth Taylor rocked extra-long, extra-thick lashes. And now, just weeks after her death, the truth behind her lush lashes has been revealed: Taylor was born with distichiasis–or double rows of eyelashes. Thankfully, the mutation had few negative effects — though in some cases it can cause problems if the lashes begin to grow inward — but it did make some assume she was wearing makeup when she was not. Roddy McDowell, her co-star in “Lassie Come Home,” recalled:

“On her first day of filming, they took one look at her and said: ‘Get that girl off the set – she has too much eye make-up on, too much mascara’ … Guess what? They learned that she had no mascara on. She has a double set of eyelashes. Now, who has double eyelashes except a girl who was absolutely born to be on the big screen?”

In Death, Elizabeth Taylor Reveals James Dean’s Dark Secret

Elizabeth Taylor knew a painful secret about close friend James Dean—but, in a 1997 interview with Kevin Sessums, she asked the journalist not to reveal it until after her death. In a column for the Daily Beast, Sessums recalls that interview for POZ, a magazine dedicated to AIDS activism. “I loved Jimmy,” she said of her co-star and friend. “I’m going to tell you something, but it’s off the record until I die. OK? When Jimmy was 11 and his mother passed away, he began to be molested by his minister.”

“I think that haunted him the rest of his life. In fact, I know it did,” she continued. “We talked about it a lot. During Giant we’d stay up nights and talk and talk, and that was one of the things he confessed to me.” Read more… Keep reading »

Elizabeth Taylor Fashionably Late To Own Funeral, Did Last Interview With Kim Kardashian

At Elizabeth Taylor‘s funeral yesterday, the proceedings began exactly 15 minutes late. On purpose—this was one of Elizabeth’s final requests. “She even wanted to be late for her own funeral,” a spokesperson explained. Considering her renown, the ceremony was small and limited to friends and family. Apparently, Colin Farrell gave a reading. Then Elizabeth was buried in the Great Mausoleum, near her buddy Michael Jackson. Keep reading »

Kim Kardashian Is No Kleopatra

Kim Kardashian attempts to channel (and interview) her idol, Elizabeth Taylor , in Harper’s Bazaar with a, ahem, Kleopatra photo spread. “What if I want to go on a date with someone in New York, and then I come home to L.A. and I go on a date? I could have slept with none of them, but I would be known as being—a ‘slore’: a slut and a whore. But I’ll do what I want. I have such a different outlook now,” Kim says of her love life. I think she has a long way to go before she reaches Liz status. A looong way. But it’s good to have goals.[Harper's Bazaar] Keep reading »

Richard Burton’s Love Letters To Liz Taylor Released — Do You Have A Love You Pine Away For?

Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton had one of those great, epic love affairs that spanned decades.

Now we will finally get a glimpse into Burton’s complex inner life and the couple’s complicated relationship. A new set of unpublished love letters from Burton to Taylor will be featured in an upcoming issue of Vanity Fair. Keep reading »
