Elizabeth Taylor was truly a generous woman.

She has left a bulk of her $600 million estate to two AIDS charities.

Her famous jewelry collection, worth an extraordinary $150 million, will be auctioned off and will be donated to the Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation and amfAR, the AIDS charity she helped found in 1985.

A financial planner commented on her fortune, saying, "From what I understand, she seems to have been very wise about her investments."

Dame Elizabeth was known to have been avid collector of jewelry, antiques, and art.

So inspiring.

    She stayed classy right until the end, and even after it. Young Hollywood celebs could learn a lot from her.

    Wow, the bulk. She has four children who also have children. I hope she was extremely generous to them; after all, they are her children.

    Ya, inspiring. Now are you coming to terms with what a bottom feeder you really are? The whole lot of you.

    $600 million, who'd a thunk it.



  20. 20

    Good for her. She earned the money, so she should leave it to whoever she wants.



  21. 21

    Wow. That is one of the most striking images I have seen of her yet. She was so beautiful and it was ALL NATURAL. I can't think of anyone in Hollywood today who matches her beauty when she was in her prime.

    Re: Big Black Dick – thank you for passing your first hand knowledge on to everyone.

    An icon has now passed into legend, and the effect is being felt all over the world. Can you imagine living life having the influence of a classical, great actress? Her confidence for life was ever present in the way she walked throughout her life. Her devotion for her loved ones even more impressive, I will never forget how she stood by her beloved Michael Jackson's side throughout his ordeal. I have a few favorite celebrities and thanks to modern technology, I can stay in tune even when away. I travel a bit through work at Dish Network so my hubby has started taping the programs he knows I would want to see for later. We actually upgraded to HD and the difference is incredible especially with the detail of the Hollywood fashion parade. Luckily Dish offers more HD channels than anyone in the industry so we are happy to be part of it. I don’t want to miss any specials that are played in Ms. Taylor’s honor. With Elizabeth Taylor's death comes the beginning of the end of the classical Hollywood that built the foundation for what has become our modern Hollywood. We all love the celebrities of today, but there is a huge difference. Back when Elizabeth was in her prime in Hollywood, you never looked anything but absolutely fantastic regardless of what else was going on in your life. This elegance was a beautiful presence she withheld all the way till the end of her life. Long live the legend of the classical beauty, Elizabeth Taylor.

    2 step sure fire way to never get aids: 1) Don't share needles if you are an intravenous drug user. 2) If you take it in the butt, always make sure a condom is used.

    Dang, what a waste of money. I bet her kids are mad.

    Re: Blondie100 – So she has 4 children and they have children So what? SHE worked for that money not them. No one is entitled to anyone else's money that they worked for. She can will the entire estate to whomever she wants to. They are lucky that they got anything. I am sure she helped them throughout their lives financially, they never wanted for anything. If you expect your parents to leave you all their life long hard working assets that is pretty sad. You need to work for your own.

    She is so naturally beautiful….I can not think of any Hollywood actress today that could compare to her beauty. I love that she is not a stick thin bobble head like so many actresses today!
    All her photo's seem effortlessly gorgeous!

    Even after death she will continue to make this world a better place for us all. SHE WAS A BEAUTIFUL HUMAN BEING!
