The British-American actress went from MGM child star, appearing in her first film in 1942, to 'greatest movie star of all'. Despite her undeniable acting abilities, she also stood as a glamorous and beautiful woman, developing an outstanding jewellery collection and featuring distinctive violet eyes that would mesmerise on and off screen. In the 1960s, Elizabeth Taylor also held a crucial role in the sexual revolution of the decade, being one of the first major stars to pose in 'Playboy' and to remove her clothes in a film. She, later, fought, against the dark side of this sexual revolution, one of the first celebrities to acknowledge the AIDS disease and to devote herself to fund-raising. From the good girl she started to embody in Lassie’s stories and A Place in the Sun, she turned a harsher character and sometimes a shrew in dramas like Suddenly Last Summer, Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf or her own love affair with Richard Burton she married and divorced several times.
