The late, great Elizabeth Taylor matched her on-screen performances with her frequent appearances in the tabloids and rumor mills. Taylor famously responded to a question about her many marriages, "I don't know, honey. It sure beats the hell out of me." Taylor's first marriage was to Conrad Hilton, which lasted nine months, then Michael Wilding, who was 20 years older than her, between 1952 and 1957.
Next came Michael Todd, who died in 1958 after a little over a year of marriage. Then came Eddie Fisher between 1959 and 1964, famously breaking up his marriage to Debbie Reynolds.
Her famous marriages to Richard Burton, first between 1964 and 1974, which began with an affair that was condemned by the Vatican, and then after sixteen months spent apart, the two came back together in 1975, only to divorce seven months later for good.
Her next marriage, to Sen. John Warner from 1976 to 1982, resulted in her entering the Betty Ford Clinic for depression, where during another stay, she met Larry Fortensky, her final husband, between 1991 and 1996.
