Below, a round-up:
"It was a long productive career and she was the most glamorous and sexual star of our generation. No one else could equal Elizabeth’s beauty and sexuality. Women liked her and men adored her and her love for her children is enduring. She was a symbol of stardom. Her legacy will last."
- Debbie Reynolds
"I loved her. She hosted a huge party when Hello Dolly first opened in Los Angeles. I remember the lavender roses and the aura of the personality. She said when you find the particular love of your life it is never forgotten. We loved you too, Elizabeth."
"I was on Broadway with Sugar Babies simultaneously while Elizabeth was appearing in Little Foxes. We would meet occasionally after shows. I will never forget those eyes or that laugh."
"How very sad for us all. She was a marker of our time, my time. It seems like yesterday that I taught a beautiful 14-year-old Elizabeth how to swim at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel, more beautiful, more voluptuous than Miss America. I will miss her."
"Liz was a dear friend. Thoughtful... generous... and forever beautiful. She was a great legendary lady of Hollywood and she will be mourned worldwide. My heartfelt prayers and thoughts are with her family." - Julie Andrews
"I am so sorry to hear that this great legend has passed. I admired and respected her not only as an actress but for her amazing and inspiring work as an AIDS activist. She was one of a kind."- Madonna "She was a true star, because she not only had beauty and notoriety; Elizabeth Taylor had talent. As a friend she was always, always there for me. I'll miss her for the rest of my life, but I was so lucky to have known her." - Liza Minnelli "She was an illuminator. She put human faces on issues. With her soft voice coming from that tiny frame, she held forth the giant purpose of the true meaning of love; that we are all equally valuable. With one simple movement, pulling her ever famous jewels from that beautiful face, she opened the hearts of the world not just to the condition of HIV/AIDS as she had intended but ultimately to human rights as a whole. She stood in her grace and candor and simply said the truth; that we are one, a world that must understand and accept itself. The world will not be without Dame Elizabeth Taylor, the world is becoming as she envisioned it; freer, and therefore she is not gone." - Sharon Stone “We are deeply saddened by the loss of Elizabeth Taylor. Her artistic contribution to the motion picture industry is immeasurable. In a career spanning more than 70 years and 50 films, her talent endured the test of time and transcended generations of moviegoers. She truly was an American icon, whose legacy went far beyond her acting skills, most notably in her efforts to lead the battle against HIV/AIDS. Our thoughts are with her family and her many friends and fans during this difficult time.” -Senator Chris Dodd, Chairman and CEO of the Motion Picture Association of America "Elizabeth was the last great movie star. And a great human being. What I'll always remember about Elizabeth was her laugh. She would walk into a room looking like a princess and suddenly there would be this cackle that filled the room that would crack us all up. I'm so glad to have known her. It's a very sad day for me."
-Barry Manilow "It's the end of an era. It wasn't just her beauty or her stardom. It was her humanitarianism. She put a face on HIV/AIDS. She was funny. She was generous. She made her life count."
- Barbra Streisand
"It's a terrible loss. A unique talent and a singularly spectacular individual."
- Martin Landau
"Our loss in the motion picture business with Elizabeth Taylor's passing is momentous. She was a lady who gave of herself to everyone. I know I consider it a great personal loss."
