LOS ANGELES, Aug. 20 (UPI) -- U.S. actress Elizabeth Taylor is back home in Los Angeles after spending several weeks in a hospital, her publicist says.

Taylor, 76, is "living her life" and "having dinner with friends," spokesman Dick Guttman told the BBC. Guttman dismissed reports that Taylor had been seriously ill but wouldn't give details about Taylor's condition or where she was hospitalized.

The broadcaster says Taylor uses a wheelchair after breaking her back five times while suffering from osteoporosis. She also underwent hip replacement surgery in 1995 and had a brain tumor removed in 1997.

Taylor denied speculation that she was gravely ill or being treated for Alzheimer's disease during a 2006 interview with CNN, saying, "Oh come on, do I look like I'm dying?"
