More than skin deep

A couple of pictures of Elizabeth Taylor for you from old fan magazines. The second is when she played Rebecca in Ivanhoe, and completely outshone the lead couple.



As beautiful as she was, I can't help feeling that, like Audrey Hepburn, she had an equal amount of beauty, if not more, on the inside. When HIV first emerged and governments were reluctant to talk about, and when bigots were claiming it as something the gay community somehow deserved, she started raising money for research. She could have chosen to adopt any cause, but she championed the ones that seemed to have fewest champions.

That sort of beauty never fades.
