Legendary actress Elizabeth Taylor has died at age 79.
The passing was first reported ABC’s Good Morning America. In a tweet sent out at 9 am on Wednesday, the show wrote: “Breaking: Elizabeth Taylor has died, @GMA confirms.”
Taylor had been hospitalized in February for congestive heart failure, a condition she learned she had in 2004. A two time Oscar winner (for “Butterfield 8″ in 1960 and “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?” in 1966), Taylor was also known for her eight high profile marriages.
In mid-March, her publicist, Sally Morrison, said she was in stable condition at the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.
