Celebrities tweet reactions to Elizabeth Taylor's death

Hollywood lost a legend today when two-time Academy Award winner Elizabeth Taylor finally succumbed to a long illness. Though the star of films like Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? and Cat on a Hot Tin Roof passed away just hours ago, notable personalities have already taken to Twitter to post messages of remembrance and celebration. We’ll be adding to this post as the day goes on and more celebs tweet about the violet-eyed star — who, by the way, had a Twitter account of her own: @DameElizabeth. Her last tweet was sent out February 9, right before she was hospitalized for congestive heart failure.

Zooey Deschanel:
“RIP elizabeth taylor, a great actress and a great beauty, who’s formidable contributions to both film and charity will always be remembered.”

“I met Elizabeth Taylor several times. She was witty and self-deprecating, which I found surprising and delightful. She loved to laugh.”

“God bless Elizabeth Taylor. One of the last true Hollywood legends.. What a lady, what a life..”

Jane Fonda:
“I knew elizabeth Taylor and I can tell you she was kind, brave, generous and loyal. I am sad.”

“Elizabeth Taylor was a silver screen legend, a tabloid favorite 50 years before Brangelina and a tireless worker for noble causes. RIP.”

Magic Johnson:
“Elizabeth, thank you for all your help in the battle for HIV and AIDS. You will be missed by the world.”

General Hospital star Nancy Lee Grahn:
“RIP Elizabeth Taylor (proud to say my original TV stepmommy). A class act by all that I know that knew her. Tony thought she hung the moon”

Marlee Matlin:
“So VERY shocked and saddened to hear of the passing of Dame Elizabeth Taylor. A true Hollywood legend and humanitarian and friend. RIP”

Sports guy Bill Simmons:

      Stupid article, who cares what these D-List “stars” tweet.

      • c

        D-list…you r kidding right..do some research.

      • Hollywood Friend!

        Do I detect Jealousy?? If they are on the D-List as you say, then YOU must be on the Z-List or would that be the zero list?

  • Cara

    So glad to finally know what Bethenny Frankel had to say about this. I was so curious.

    • John

      True – when such a ‘celebrity’ as Bethanny speaks – we all listen. And this piece of trash is completely incapable of writing a grammatically correct sentence… pathetic

      • Hater hater

        You need to get a life!

      • John

        Responding to Hater’s post: Perhaps I do need to get a life (and I will think about it, thanks for suggestion) however, this does not take away from the fact that Bethenny is still trash.

    • dctoronto

      I’d also include Marlee Matlin in the mix. She always tweets about celebrity passings.

    • Dgently

      @Cara: LOL OL OL

  • Dee Jones

  • David Yaun

  • Ash

    ‘Just me, or are we all hoping Liz picks Burton for her Heaven Husband?’
    Whaat…? Really, that’s the joke he made? A little respect. RIP Elizabeth Taylor

  • Ronald Aldridge

    From my earliest memories of Elizabeth Taylor, I knew she was a rare and unique actress who had something to teach the rest of us.
    Rest in peace!

  • Tom Hunter

    More than her big roles in movies, I recall some of the smaller, more offbeat thing she did and treated with the same class that she brought to the big screen: She and Richard Burton on one of Lucy’s sitcoms with Liz’s ring stuck on Lucy’s hand. The original Helena Cassadine on GH.

    God Bless.

  • mary

    Something went out of the world with the passing of Dame Elizabeth. I always thought of her as immortal. I will miss her.

  • Hollywood Friend!

    wsugar – you are an inconsiderate MORON and obviously would not make a speck of nail polish on Elizibeth Taylors finger nail. RIP Dame Elizabeth!!!!

  • lisbet fan

    Elizabeth Taylor! The name evokes glamour, Old Hollywood, romance, dazzling jewelry. However, she was an icon who never took the safe route. She was fierce, independent, and blazed her own trails. Most of all, she was compassionate. At the time when AIDS was viewed like the pox, she brought the human aspect of it. When Rock Hudson was treated as a pariah, she was there. She believed in MJ when he was put through the shredder. What a loyal friend to have, and what a stand she took when people were afraid to touch elevator buttons in fear of contracting AIDS. RIP dear Elizabeth Taylor, you are one of a kind, maybe the only one.

  • glenn

    The likes of Dame Elizabeth Taylor will never be duplicated. She was one in a zillion. Beauty, brains, business sense and CLASS. A life racked will illness, pain and heartache. May her family know that the world of moview goers join in their grief.

  • JRB

    I thought she was great in ‘Cleopatra’. Now if she bumps into Richard Burton again, she’ll know she went to Hell.

  • tom


    • Hater hater

      Why wouldn’t he?

  • TooMutch

    It’s sad, but life.

    The way it was is something that for me is still bit difficult to comprehend.

    She was diagnosed a quit long time ago with a heart condition, and passed long periods on hospitals since then.

    A bug/disease/condition that is commonly to acquire involuntarily on hospitals is “staphylococcus” bacteria.

    Staphylococcus bacteria is a thing that if not properly treated can evolute to heart disease, liver, kidney, lungs diseases.

    Just Google it to known more about it.

    Another thing that is normally associated whit “staphylococcus bacteria” is allergies whit the denomination IgE, IgA, IgG and IgM, that normally make lots of victims that died on the start of spring and at the start of autumn/fall and during those seasons due to mistreatment of symptoms that are commonly associated whit Staphylococcus and Allergies.

    just Google this and read about the common symptoms associated that normally are considered other things completely in an oppose direction.

    Rest In Peace

    Our youngest daughter was named after her. We had another name picked out, but when the nurse showed her to me- I said “she looks like Elizabeth Taylor” and that’s why she has that beautiful name today. I know- I was kinda crazy, worn out and on drugs right then, but have never regretted giving her that name. Even though she didn’t grow up looking like her so much- both still beautiful women.
