Top 10 Elizabeth Taylor Performances

The gorgeous Elizabeth Taylor was known for many things – her brows, her attention-catching violet eyes, and of course, her charming acting. Starting at the tender age of 12, Taylor became Hollywood’s brightest star in no time at all, best Elizabeth Taylor performances that we’re looking back on in 2020.

1. Cleopatra, 1963

Who could forget the piercing, cat-eyed beauty of Elizabeth Taylor. sHe broke literal records with this role, becoming the highest paid actress thanks to a million dollar contract. She also met Richard Burton on the set of this flick where they had their passionate affair. The movie itself is pretty dramatic, clocking in at just over 4 hours long.

2. Butterfield 8, 1960

Taylor was serving complete curvaceous body in this film – it was hard to take our eyes off her. With co-star Eddie Fisher, Taylor plays a prostitute who takes the male protagonist away from his beloved wife. Honestly, even if she was just a random girl walking by, she could probably still steal his girl. Although she slayed the role, apparently Elizabeth hated the movie, even though she was so good at playing the tragic character.

3. Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, 1958

This Tennessee Williams play adaptation won a Pulitzer Prize, and Elizabeth Taylor definitely did it justice. The plot is about a wealthy family breaking down from the inside, and Taylor played a seductive and love-scored woman (doesn’t she always?) who can’t earn the affection of her alcoholic, ex-football player of a husband.

4. Raintree County, 1957

Staring Elizabeth at her peak, “RainTree County” got her an Oscar nomination – her first, in fact. Compared to many with “Gone With The Wind,” critics harshly judged this film for being long and boring, but we’ll never forget the tragic story surrounding a car crash that happened during filming. Clift nearly died, and Taylor saved her movie husband’s life by reaching into his throat and scooping his teeth out so he wouldn’t choke.
