Elizabeth Taylor Passes Away At 79

Miss yourself some Elizabeth Taylor? Well, now you can have a little bit more of the screen legend, as told by her children via anecdotes and never-before seen photographs.

Growing up the son of a screen legend “was great, kind of circus-like,” says Christopher Wilding, the 58-year old son of Taylor. “The big tent folds and moves to the next city.”

Wilding makes a point of saying that Taylor “took great pains to create a stable family life” for her beloved four children. She wasn’t a big disciplinarian, but she did promote positivity and steered her kiddies away from judging others.  In this week’s issue of PEOPLE, Taylor’s family shares intimate memories and rare pictures of their mother for the first time in honor of her AIDS activism, leading up to World AIDS Day on Dec. 1. Sounds like a kind gesture for a family that really respected their mother’s life and cause.

Lindsay Lohan Thinks She Looks Like Elizabeth Taylor

Lindsay Lohan realllyyy wants her Elizabeth Taylor cred.

Lindsay’s infamous Lifetime movie,  Liz & Dick, starts shooting this week with Grant Bowler from “True Blood” co-starring as Richard Burton. Pictures have emerged of Lindsay of her new Tayloresque haircut that she thinks truly made her look like Elizabeth.

She DID have her hair cut and dyed (no wigs used!) but that doesn’t make Lohan look that much like Taylor.  And that’s to say nothing of her acting chops.

I’m eager to see how this shoot turns out, and how Lindsay does.  But before the shooting starts, check out LiLo in her full Liz Taylor garb– and see for yourself whether her getup is convincing!
