Elizabeth Taylor has died at 79 years of age — but what a life she lived.

She once said, “I’m a survivor, a living example of what people can go through and survive.”

Elizabeth Taylor died Wednesday (3/23/11) at 1:30am.

 

In 2003, Taylor announced her retirement. Public appearances became rare and there were always reports stating she was at deaths door. Taylor herself labeled the report false.

“Oh, come on, do I look like I’m dying?” Taylor asked Larry King in 2006, her first TV interview in years. “Do I look like or sound like I have Alzheimer’s?”

Though retired from Hollywood, Taylor refused to retire from her activist work. “There’s still so much more to do,” she told the Associated Press in 2005. “I can’t sit back and be complacent, and none of us should be. I get around now in a wheelchair, but I get around.”

RIP Taylor, you will be forever missed.
