Elizabeth Taylor News Archive
While promoting Burton and Taylor at the Hamptons International Film Festival over the weekend, Helena Bonham Carter attempted to pull off some lengthy Bob Marley-esque tresses.
Because nothing goes with a cherry blossom print dress like dreads, right?
But since there’s supposedly no trouble with their relationship, we guess it doesn’t really matter. LOLz!

Is it time for a reboot already!?
Helena Bonham Carter apparently thinks so because she's portraying Elizabeth Taylor for the BBC in another biopic about her tumultuous relationship with Richard Burton!, and we have the footage that proves it!!!!
Ch-ch-check out the trailer for Burton and Taylor (above)!
Plus, if there's one gurl in the world who knows what it's like to bang a dude with the last name Burton, it's HBC! She's been dating director Tim Burton since 2001!
Burton and Taylor, which also stars The Wire's Dominic West, premieres October 16th on BBC America.
The Magic Mike star will be fulfilling a personal dream to portray actor Montgomery Clift! He told GQ Italia last year:
"I would love to do a Montgomery Clift biopic. I would love to just keep working with really great directors who really inspire me."
And now it's coming true! Matt has been cast in the title role of Monty Clift, the story of the affair between Montgomery and his A Place In The Sun costar Elizabeth Taylor!
But she better be good- because Matt is the spitting image of the iconic Montgomery!
Ch-ch-check out the pics (below) of both actors in their prime.
Here we go again!
We already got a taste of Elizabeth Taylor's life with Richard Burton when Lindsay Lohan did her thing in Liz & Dick, but now we're getting some more goodness with Helena Bonham Carter taking on the challenge of portraying the legendary actress.
We showed you the first pic of Helena as Liz in Burton and Taylor, but now we're getting a sneak peek of the action to come!
Starring alongside Dominic West as Richard, these two certainly bring a very different energy to the roles.
We're not going to call which will be better just yet since we haven't seen the BBC TV movie, but we have our suspicions, and it ain't looking good for LiLo!
Ch-ch-check out the trailer (above) and tell us which you think will be better!
You know Debbie Reynolds. She’s the one Lindsay Lohan didn’t play in Liz & Dick. (Small favors, Debs!!!)
Debbie was America’s Jen Aniston-level sweetheart in the 1950s, but, sadly, her husband,
ladies’ man singer Eddie Fisher, who died in 2010, didn’t feel the same, leaving Debbie for the late femme fatale Elizabeth Taylor — the Angelina Jolie before Angelina Jolie.
While promoting her current film, HBO's Behind the Candelabra, Debbie explained:
This time, Helena Bonham Carter and The Wire's Dominic West will play the ultimate on-again, off-agains, and they've got the makeup to prove it!
We think Helena looks incredible! This might also be the first time since she married Tim Burton that we've seen her without her kooky goth look! She may be the only actress who has to tone down the eyeliner for the Cleopatra scenes! LOLz!
One serious question though- why not Johnny Depp for Richard Burton? He loves working with Helena! Sure, he doesn't look anything like him, but come on! Johnny Depp!
What do U think? Helena or Lindsay??

If you’ve always wanted to walk down the aisle in Elizabeth Taylor's wedding dress, then you’re in luck!
Next month, Christie’s is auctioning off the very first wedding gown Liz ever wore when she tied the knot with Conrad Hilton Jr. on May 6, 1950 at the tender age of 18.
Created by costume designer Helen Rose and gifted to the legendary actress from MGM, the shell-white satin gown is embellished with seed pearls and bugle beads, boasts a 15-yard train and features a built-in corset to give Taylor a 20 inch waist.
The wedding gown is expected to fetch at least $75,175 when it hits the auction block on June 26th in London, but based on previous Elizabeth Taylor auctions, we wouldn't be surprised if it sold for MUCH more than that.
And if you can't get your hands on Elizabeth's first gown, don't worry! She walked down the aisle 7 other times, so it's only a matter of time before they hit the auction block too.
