Kitten with the Violet Eyes
I've been flying around the world so many times and feel so guilty as I just haven't had time to sit and write about the passing one of the greatest Bombshells of the silver screen.
Her nickname was Kitten, the first woman to earn 1 million dollars for acting in a film, with her own successful line of perfumes (before every minor starlet and her dog jumped on that bandwagon) and she had one of the most stunning jewelry collections in the world. If you haven't yet guessed who I'm writing about, think of an actress with vivid violet eyes, a woman who was married 8 times and an incredible supporter for the fight against AIDS, Dame Elizabeth Rosemond Taylor.
About being the first woman in history to earn a whopping million dollars (for the title role in Cleopatra), Elizabth said, "If someone's dumb enough to offer me a million dollars to make a picture, I'm certainly not dumb enough to turn it down." She was also quoted saying, "Success is a great deodorant. It takes away all your past smells." and, "Some of my best leading men have been dogs and horses."
My favourite quote being "When people say 'she's got everything', I've got one answer - I haven't had tomorrow."
