I still can't believe it.


John hated HS. Fred's fave singer was not PR. Roger didn't compose 'Innuendo.' Witness testimonies are often inaccurate. Scotland's not in England. 'Bo Rhap' hasn't got 180 voices.

This is very sad. Not only was she such a wonderful, gifted actress and such a beautiful person - she was also a loving, caring woman and great humanitarian who single-handedly removed much of the social stigma from the AIDS victims and promoted awareness more than anyone else in a very unselfish way. She knew about suffering and I hope she died in peace and dignity.

A wonderful person, a great actress and an amazing caring person. It's a pity she's gone

"I still can't believe it"

Well I'm not happy that she's dead - end of another era, you might say - but it's really quite believable that she's dead.  The safe money is really on her and Kirk Douglas, if you're gonna pick an obvious death.

Those events mean different things for different people. She was one of those 'larger than life' individuals for me; not in the sense that I was a huge fan (I liked her acting but I never collected pix or anything), or in the sense that I'm extremely sad (I'm not - those who really knew her can relate in a way I never could), but in the sense that, against all logic (age, illness, etc.), I, indeed, still can't believe it.

One of the things I admired about Elizabeth was her use of candor as a bit of a bat against superficiality and general nonsense.   There are others in Hollywood like that, and it's a trait that I admire and connect to in regular life as well.  I think of her and Robert Downey Jr. as quick and obvious examples.  The personality seems anchored by a genuine warmth and a genuine interest in other people and a fundamental lack of concern about what others might think, the latter in turn anchored by an inherent charisma and warmth and naughtiness that just kind of bubbles up and naturally smooths things over in the wake of saying something a little outrageous or something that provokes or challenges.  Marlon Brando was like that too, but in a darker way because he genuinely sought to make people uncomfortable.  Perhaps Charlie Sheen (who I've never liked in this case) is another example that is a little darker.   In Hollywood and in regular life these people generally have some kind of history of compulsive use of something - drugs, food, women, alcohol, marriages etc. - because it's probably a lot about having not very rigid internal controls.  Overall it comes out in ways that are wonderful and constructive on the one hand, if a bit self destructive on the other.

Anyway, all that to say I enjoyed Elizabeth's personality and humour a great deal.

i agree with almost all of the comments made about her
but if she had one major fault and i mean one fault...it was her "lateness"...she'd pride herself on keepign everyone waiting....which i think shows a lack of respect almost as if to say "i will turn up when i ma ready, and for those who appear on time, well i don;t think your time is imprtant enough for me to be punctual"
