Dame Elizabeth: Eight Is Enough

Eight times married DAME ELIZABETH TAYLOR has vowed not to wed again - but could live with a man if he had a good sense of humour.

In a live TV interview yesterday (15JAN00) the legendary CLEOPATRA star said she'd had great loves, fellow actor RICHARD BURTON, whom she married twice and divorced twice, and film producer MICHAEL TODD, who died in a plane crash after just 13 months of marriage.

But she had no good words to say about EDDIE FISHER, whom she married in 1958, stealing him away from his then-wife DEBBIE REYNOLDS. Ironically, Taylor co-stars with Reynolds in the new TV movie THESE OLD BROADS, which will be shown on America's ABC network next month (FEB01) - but the Dame confirmed she and THE SINGING NUN actress have made up to the extent they enjoyed "dishing" their mutual ex-husband on set.

But whilst Taylor is over marriage she still has a fixed idea of what qualities a man must possess to be her live-in-lover. She said, "I'd live with someone if he were cute, intelligent, compassionate, adorable, had a good sense of humour." (CPT/WNWR/RP)
