New Delhi: Legendary actress Elizabeth Taylor passed away in the early hours of Wednesday in Los Angeles. The actress was admitted at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles two months ago for treatment of symptoms of congestive heart failure. She was 79.

A former child star, she grew to be known for her acting talent and beauty, as well as her Hollywood lifestyle, including many marriages.

The ‘Cleopatra’ star had been suffering from heart ailments since 2004 and had been diagnosed with congestive heart failure, a progressive condition in which the heart is too weak to pump sufficient blood throughout the body.

The two time Oscar winner was known for her glamour, beauty and her partnership with actor Richard Burton. Burton was one of her seven husbands and the duo had starred in 12 films together including ‘Who`s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?’
