Elizabeth Taylor remembered at Hollywood tribute studded with stars
Washington: Late screen legend Dame Elizabeth Taylor was honoured at a memorial service in Hollywood, which was attended by famous stars including Sir Michael Caine, Colin Farrell and Sir Elton John.
The ‘Cleopatra’ icon died in March this year after losing her long battle with congestive heart disease, sending the showbiz world into mourning.
Her son Christopher staged the Worldwide Tribute to Elizabeth Taylor at the Steven J. Ross Theatre on Los Angeles’ Warner Bros. lot on Sunday to honour his mother.
Farrell hosted the 75-minute celebration, which was attended by all of Taylor``s children, and Elton John sang his track ‘Blue Eyes’ at the bash.
“To say that the world got smaller, emptier, darker and lonelier when we lost Elizabeth is an understatement,” Contact music quoted Farrell as telling the guests.
“She was a true rock, a pioneer, a pathfinder, a trailblazer and a star who will always burn bright and always had time to laugh at herself,” he added.
The event also raised money for the late actress’ charity, the Elizabeth Taylor Hiv/Aids Foundation.
