RALEIGH, N.C., May 3 (UPI) -- Hollywood star Elizabeth Taylor has voiced her support for U.S. Sen. Hillary Clinton in the ongoing primaries, saying the Democrat is "not a flibbertijibbet."

The "Butterfield 8" star said voters in next week's primaries in Indiana and North Carolina should support the New York politician for her strong political convictions, CNN reported Saturday.

"It would be magnificent for our country if Senator Clinton won the votes, hearts and minds of the people in Indiana and North Carolina on Tuesday. She's a brilliant teacher and powerful leader. We all know what she's about. We know what she isn't. Senator Clinton is not a flibbertijibbet (sic). She's strong," Taylor said in a statement Friday.

The longtime Clinton supporter said she was confident Democrats would ultimately choose Clinton as their nominee.

"The future of our great country rests in the hands of the next president. Who sits in the Oval Office will be determined greatly by the citizens of Indiana and North Carolina. In my heart, I know they will choose wisely and they will choose well," Taylor said.
