Update, 4:17 p.m.: According to Sgt. Thomas Lorenz, PIO for Glendale, California, a "small service" will take place today for family and friends of Elizabeth Taylor, who died Wednesday at the age of 79, at Forest Lawn Cemetery at 2 p.m. PT.
Lorenz told CNN that there will be no procession, no hearse and no motorcade. Attendees will drive into Forest Lawn in their own vehicles, and "just a few dozen" people are expected.
There were earlier reports that Taylor would be buried in the Pierce Brothers Westwood Village Memorial Park Cemetery in Los Angeles next to her mother and father and near other stars like Marilyn Monroe, but a rep told CNN earlier that details of her funeral were to stay private.
Fans will still get their chance to pay respects to Taylor, however, as details of a memorial service will be announced at a later date. The family did ask that instead of flowers, contributions be made to the Elizabeth Taylor AIDS foundation.
Blessings to her and her family!
Good point. Some people should be ashamed of themselves! As F.Gump would say,"Stupid is as stupid does"!
To all you sick peeps & your stupid comments. Let us know when someone you love dies, so we can say horrible things about them, ok? You forget, Liz has a family grieving their loss. I doubt they had fun at her funeral. Sometimes it's best to keep your mouths shut ! Again, let us know when your fat mom dies so we can talk about putting her in a piano & nibble on her fat toes before we go have fun at her graveside. (Sounds pretty stupid, doesn't it?)
Please would all of you respect Elizabeth taylor and her family and her childern leave alone and peace for rest! Also she work so hard and help people too !!! Thank you
I don't think Elizabeth Taylor's mom and dad were jewish. She took up the jewish religion when she married Eddie Fisher (I think) or it could have been Michael Todd that she changed for.
I think Elizabeth Taylor was truly the most beautiful women to ever grace this planet. She had a style and grace that is never seen nowadays in actresses. There will never be another one like her. She is the last of the great stars...she will be missed.;
Elizabeth Taylor was a beautiful human being, both inside & out. She cared about others and showed it. My condolences to her children & grandchildren for their loss.
Rest In Peace, Elizabeth Taylor. You will continue to live on thru your films.
"There is nothin' like a dame,
Nothin' in the world,
There is nothin' you can name
That is anythin' like a dame!"
We'll miss you Dame Elizabeth !!
I love the donation suggestion. More people should consider this idea when they prepare their a living will.
The greates diva ever....just liket Marylin, Jane Russell, Ava Gardner, Maria Felix........it's no more class, natural beauty and glamour left in the world of hollywood....they all are gone with the wind!! Rest in peace Ms. Taylor and for one I want to call you LIZ what a beautiful, humanitarian and strong character in your movies...Go in peace the world is mouning your departur Liz and rest in peace!!
Elizabeth Taylor was British from England. Her converted religion was Judaism. I'm hoping TV will show all her movies soon.
Who the hell cares if Elizabeth Taylor is or was Jewish get a freeken life!!!!!
She was an amazing actress and beautiful person she is hopefully with God. R.I.P with Michael Jackson ( Her very best friend) Love u Liz!
well said RIP Liz...you were the best.
Her death is the end of an era of glamour and true talent. RIP Ms Taylor.
I'm glad they are making it quick and private because Topeka's very own freak show morons announced they were gearning up to picket her sevices. Was kind of hoping they would get the same reception they got when they took their moronic act to Frisco .... times (X) 10, no make it 100. Then we could have been rid of them.
Good grief...the woman was a nut case...married 8 times!!!...If she was just Jane Nobody, who lived next door to you, you would have thought she was a crazy lady!!!
What a creep you are! Get a life! Do something – anything in your own life that would let you be fit to even kiss her feet. FO
You need to go relieve your bowels.
Okay go take a dump
So true, we're all born to die. It's what you do in between that counts. I have to admit, being buried freaks me out!
I think that was wonderful what the family did ,keep it simple,and I'm sure Mrs Taylor had told her family how she wonted to be buried,When death comes it should not be about religion,that's what wrong with a.lot of people today,we all must die,that we have no control of,but we do have control on how we won't to be buried.
Really? Time for a moment of silence. RIP, Liz.
Good. I'm glad Westboro probably won't be able to protest at her funeral. Bet they are scrambling. Bunch of losers.
It was my understanding that she wanted to be near laid to rest near her friend Michael Jackson.
Elizabeth is being buried near Michael in the Great Mausoleum at Forest Lawn Glendale.
Liz reminds me of an aunt I had who tried to please everyone . I say she did a good job of it.
Without a doubt the most beautiful woman I've ever seen.
When he died, Liz bought the burial plot next to Richard Burton in Switzerland, on the opposite side of Sally's, his widow. I wonder if she is going to use it.
Lol !!! Thanks for the "chuckle"!!! Still laughing !!!
Leave her alone; there is no point in criticizing someone after they have died. She did a lot of good for those others tossed aside. She's gone....move on.
Yes carlos, get a life!!! Your 1 of those people who's momma did a bad job raising her kids!! You have the nerve to call others ass holes??????? If the shoe fits....!
Mike my girl. You sure sound a little light in your loaffers. How many musicals do you go to each year ?
Elizabeth Taylor was stunningly beautiful,talanted actress, and wonderful woman. She is one and only Hollywood icon and legend. She will be remembered for her roles, and for her amaizing humanitarian work, that she did.(Some comments here are not acceptalbe. You can only see that we have immature individuals with no respect.) Rest in peace .......
The Phelps Westboro "pack-o-idiots" are supposed to be there bothering the real humans. I expect that Bruce Willis and Chuck Norris will be kicking their butts.
I was sad to hear of Elizabeth's passing yesterday. She was truly the real kind of movie star that had glamour, intelligence, and determination that is very rare nowadays. I couldn't help but think of the lyrics of 1 particular song when I heard of her passing: "ageless and evergreen". I will always think of her beauty and that she was able to weather any kind of storm. My thoughts/prayers go out to the children.
Best Liz Taylor movie ever is whos afraid of Virginia Woolf, Hands down
I loved Woolf too; but my favorite was Cat on a Hot Tin Roof- boy of mine.
Isn't Marilyn Monroe buried at forest lawn cemetery?
That's what the article said so why are you asking?
Elizabeth, RIP. You were a real STAR.
Don't blame the parents for rude children – parents can teach only the right path but cannot choose that path for them.
I do blame parents when their offspring show no decency or human kindness to their fellow man.
No matter her religion, weight, or other things, She was a beautiful woman and wonderful actress. She starred in quite a few of my old favorites and still can't believe she's gone. Rest in Peace Liz!
@Marky I Love the Spring Break comment. Spot on.
Liz had a big ole fat mushy rump that needed a deep plowing.
Blessings to her and her family.
Liz loved the Triple Whopper w/Cheese and extra Mayo but I was wondering with her huge Fat Gut how she was able to shave her Fat Kooter-Pie?
They have NO RESPECT, that's their problem! Their momma's didn't do a very good job, did they?
Their mothers probably give em a free pass every single time... "oh it's okay, just don't do it again." Nice slap on the wrist right there. According to my friend, who is a teacher, when parent-teacher conferences are in session even though the kid bullies other kids or does poorly in class, the parents think the child is so smart and is bored... really?
Liz puts the FUN in Funeral.
Just because she was a public figure doesn't mean her death is any easier to her family and close friends. Hopefully ALL will show some respect during this time and this beautiful women (an original Diva) can be laid to rest properly.
Wow! Do all of you throw-up after you eat? Is skinny everything to you? How shallow is that? I think you all need to get a life!!
They have found a casket the size of a piano case in which to bury Fat-Girl.
Liz was a big girl and I wish I couldve nibbled her fat toes before she kicked the bucket.
Elizabeth Taylor was a beautiful actress, humanitarian and person who graced the world for decades. The world will grieve for her publicly, but her funeral should be private and kept to family and close friends. I'm sure Hollywood will (rightfully so) find a great way to honor her work.
Im 6 feet under and cant make the funeral.
Liz was jewish and should be buried in a proper Jewish ceremony!
Well if her mum and dad are buried in that cemetary I would think that would be an indication that they gave up being Jewish!
Dont you think????
She was a Jewish convert: she converted after marrying Mike Todd. Don't know whether she stayed connected to the faith in her later years. Her parents were never Jewish.
@Marky – she actually converted to Judaism for Eddie Fisher.
Forest Lawn has Jewish sections, and since she is being buried so quickly (Jewish law calls for a burial within 24 hours), it appears that she is having a proper Jewish funeral service.
Who cares if she was Jewish???
She is as we speak.
Okay, stupid 14 yr old idiot; she wasn't overweight when she died. Please, you are one of the reasons people hate spring break. Don't you have a real life?
Are you a stand-up comic or something? Do you think that's funny?
Forklift huh? Are you jealous or something? I mean when you're buried it'll probably take three quarters of the armed forces and an aircraft carrier to get you to your final resting place. Sorry to be rude to you but you need to be put in your place. Such disrespectful comments are not necessary. What have you ever contributed to the world? This woman contributed her art, her money, her time, and her clout as an actress for humanitarian efforts which remain largely unmatched by anyone in Hollywood or with as much money as she possessed. She was a gift to humanity and your ugly words do nothing but show your ugliness as a person.
Never mind the ignorant comment... you said you could make it even though you were buried 6 feet under... ever heard of proofreading?
It's probably the same person or the same group of kids... thought you would get that by now.
You obviously are as ignorant as two planks. Ms Taylor did more good in her life to help those who could not help themselves than most governments. You could not rise to that level if you were canonised.
"Humongous"? Really? Really? You must be the size of a carrot if you think Taylor was "humongous."
I dont think there is a reason to argue with people who has no respect, and no brain at all. Just ignore them. I am supprised that they even know who Elizabeth Taylor was. She is an icon and legendary woman,who will always be remembered for her roles,her beauty outside and inside,and for all her hummanitarian work. Rest in peace......
Thank you for your comment. It is very true and Elizabeth should be shown the respect she deserves. All who knew her, loved her. Many of us who didn't know her personally, respected her for her generosity, intelligence, and ability to live life in spite of many difficulties which came her way. She did not fail to acknowledge her own shortcomings, but she didn't mention everyone else's. She was also a very caring parent, even Carrie Fisher said so. That's pretty amazing.....
