Elizabeth Taylor

Funeral Service Today

3/24/2011 2:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Elizabeth Taylor's private funeral service will be held today and she will be buried at the same cemetery where Michael Jackson is entombed.

Elizabeth Taylor Funeral
We've learned the private service will be held at Forest Lawn in Glendale, CA. 

We're told the service will be held this afternoon.

We've obtained the death certificate, which lists Mt. Sinai as the mortuary and Forest Lawn, Glendale as her final resting place.

Therefore it now appears Taylor's final resting place will not be the crypt next to her parents at the Westwood Village Memorial Park Cemetery.

I hope this means those protesters will not have a chance to interfere with the funeral. Not a huge fan of Ms. Taylor but how is it right to go protesting someone's funeral! You don't offend the person and all you do is hurt the family! IDIOTS!

#19 I believe Jewish ritual is that the individual be buried within 24 hours (before sundown of the following day after death).

@boston-gal,,,,: "Harvey. If Liz is Jewish (someone said she had converted) then way did she celebrate Christmas with Michael Jackson?! Confusing. Please clarify."

I found this you might find interesting here:

http://www.examiner.com/acting-in-national/michael-jackson-s-first-christmas-elizabeth-taylor-happily-responsible/

The article there says: "Michael Jackson grew up as a Jehovah Witness, so due to that religion's beliefs he did not celebrate Christmas.

In Michael's later adult years he stopped following the Jehovah Witness religion, so his friend Elizabeth Taylor wanted him to see what Christmas was all about from her perspective.

Taylor and a small "team" helped her to decorate and video tape the inside of Michael's home, mostly it appears of the living room area, with tree, presents and lights. She did this while he was sleeping to surprise him.

The following is one of Michael Jackson's home video tapes showing the grand display of Christmas that Elizabeth Taylor presented to her friend.

This was shot in 1993, showing Elizabeth Taylor when she helped Michael celebrate Christmas for the very first time. He was 35 at the time.

The Christmas celebration took place at Neverland Ranch."

She was a close friend of Michael Jackson and wanted to be with him at a time that was important to him in his life.

She was a legend but not for her acting talent. She was more famous for all her marriages and her drunken behavior w Burton. Her films were so-so and her looks were all about her eyes and nothing more because her body sucked and she was always bloated and overweight. Barbara Walters claims she had a nasty potty mouth too. So much for being the great talent and beauty the way the press is hyping her. The real beauties of that era were Bardot, Ursula A and Ava Gardner to name a few. Taylor was the LIndsay Lohan of her day.

boston-gal,,,, I think you meant to direct your remark of "You're a moron!" to "Truth" who wrote that stuff about Elizabeth Taylor being "over-rated" in his or her post #58, and you are not directing your remark to me as I was just responding to "Truth"'s Post #58, in my post #66, and I just wrote the facts about her movies, nominations and awards.

Please clarify, to whom you were directing your remark. Thanks.

Truth,trolls need to learn manners.This is not the time,nor is it the place to post your juvenile tirade.You are not to bully anyone here.
Taylor's work includes some of the best of movies:
Cat on a Hot Tin Roof
Suddenly,Last Summer
A Place in the Sun
National Velvet
Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?
You are not a fan,so why are you here? Being an ill-mannered bully is nothing to be proud about;I suggest you go to the library and take out books on basic etiquette and learn how to behave properly.

I agree w/u Lisa #79. As far as everyone else saying bad things about her, no one is perfect and no one will ever be perfect. That's not for us to judge. That's for God to judge. So please get off the high horse people!
