Truth be told, Elizabeth Taylor’s palette was quite diverse when it came to her love life. The movie star had had a history of marrying men who were a bit older, but when she and construction worker Larry Fortensky walked down the aisle in 1991, she proved to the world that she definitely had no type when it came to men.
The young man was two decades her junior, which seemed very out of character for Taylor. Unfortunately, the love wasn’t meant to last – well, not any longer than the five years it took for Fortensky’s prenup to lock him into a million dollars, anyway.
Best Actress of Her Time
Elizabeth Taylor was widely regarded as the best actress of her time. That status was marked with a number of awards and nominations, including several years in a row of being up for Best Actress in a leading role, thanks to her performances in "Raintree County", "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof" and "Suddenly, Last Summer," just to name a few.
Sadly, haters are gonna hate — some speculated that many of the awards that she received were not necessarily granted to her for her talent. Ultimately, this is just hearsay, and it seems that Taylor's long body of work has stood the test of time, long after her passing.
Husband Number Six
Taylor’s sixth husband’s name was John Warner. Before passing away in 2021 at 94 years old, he worked as an attorney. His illustrious law career includes serving in the U.S. Senate five times, all of which came after his brief marriage to Taylor. The couple tied the knot in December of 1976 and called it quits just a few years later in 1982.
Of course, everyone knew that meant it would not be long before she was married yet again. But who would the lucky guy be this time? Her choice would raise a ton of eyebrows…and questions, to say the very least.
There are many actors out there who were born with abnormalities, in some shape or form. Elizabeth Taylor was a classic example of this. The actress was born with a genetic mutation known as distichiasis, which causes an extra set of eyelashes to emerge. While some may think that it may not be such a bad thing, the lashes often don’t come in as they’re supposed to.
Plus, they can grow at odd angles, which leads to discomfort around the eyes. The mutation is also known as FOXC2, which is interesting considering most men would likely describe Taylor as a “fox.”
There is no question about the fact that Elizabeth Taylor’s love life was always in full swing. It may have been a rollercoaster at times, but she never let things get boring for herself, the paparazzi, or the general public, that’s for sure. She paired up with everyone from other A-listers to politicians and construction workers.
Of course, she always said that her one true love was "Cleopatra" co-star, Richard Burton. And when you marry the same guy twice, unlike all of the one-off marriages in your life, that is definitely saying something. Even long after the two had split, she admitted to still being madly in love with him.
