Elizabeth Taylor and Me, by Lanier Smith

Young Taylor

Over my lifetime I leaned many things from Elizabeth Taylor. I learned how to face life straight on and survive the hard times. I learned that it was a blessing to be different. I learned that kindness and honesty and being the real you brings unexpected rewards. I learned by watching her with Montgomery Clift, James Dean, and Rock Hudson that loyalty is the hallmark of being a real friend. I learned how to use my eyes to speak when it was too loud for words.



    • Loyalty and humility, something not very apparent in people who have been hot-housed, since they were very young, for the movie screen. “I, along with the critics, have never taken myself very seriously.” E. Taylor
