Liz @ 75: "Hangin' In"

2/28/2007 5:19 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Silver screen legend Elizabeth Taylor celebrated her 75th birthday in Las Vegas last night with a pair of magicians, Princess Leia and a former Sports Illustrated covergirl.

A fur and satin-wrapped, diamond and pearl encrusted Dame Elizabeth was wheeled into her 75th birthday bash at the Ritz Carlton as a press line sang "Happy Birthday" to the beaming superstar. When asked about her love life, Liz was sharp as she shot back, "Wouldn't you like to know?!"

The oh-so-random guest list included Kathy Ireland, Debbie Reynolds (a fellow ex of Eddie Fisher) and daughter Carrie Fisher and Siegfried & Roy. Taylor's friend Michael Jackson was unable to make it to the bash, because he had, per Liz, "business things going on." Asked the secret of living to 75, the much married Oscar winner quipped, "Hangin' in!"

Not only is Elilzabeth a great beauty, tireless philanthropist for AIDS, successful business woman, devoted mother, expert on gems and jewels, she should be rememebred as a very fine screen actress. She is certainly the very last of the great, larger than life STARS.

Re: Et's 75th--I too am 75 and if I looked THAT bad I would "hang it up" instead of "hangin in"

Amazing    

Time has erased a lot of history on Liz. I don't want to be negative, and I do admire the beauty she had, but she abused it. Going up to 200 pounds, running through all those men, married or not, her early life was all about her. According to reports, her medicine cabinet would put poor Anna Nicole in the shade. She had reached Elvis levels. And she was considered an alcoholic. So ,not to take away from her charitable work in later years, we shouldn't call her a class act. The studios covered up for the old movie stars. They would not, in a million years, let a gorgeous girl like Lindsay Lohan get the kind of publicity she gets. They would have groomed her to inherit Liz' place; I do think Lindsay is that beautiful. But I can't look at her now without seeing her drunk, disorderly, fighting, etc. Liz really wasn't any better; we just didn't hear about it.

Take off the wig and the mountain of makeup and what do you have? A bloated, self centered old bag who (in spite of charity work and blah blah blah) lived a train wreck of a life that all the money and diamonds in the world couldn't hide. Let's drop the icon status and call her what she is, an embarrassment.

Elizabeth Taylor, is still a beautiful woman. Not one of the so called younger slut-ebreties can compare. What a disgrace they are to their profession.
