With rumors circulating of an Elizabeth Taylor biopic starring either Angelina Jolie or Catherine Zeta-Jones, the dame has set the record straight.
“Hold your horses world. I’ve been hearing all kinds of rumours about someone being cast to play me in a film about Richard and myself,” the Cleopatra actress Tweeted, of the stories that a movie is being made about her passionate relationship with actor Richard Burton.
“No one is going to play Elizabeth Taylor, but Elizabeth Taylor herself.”
Oh, but there’s more! “Not at least until I’m dead, and at the moment I’m having too much fun being alive… and I plan on staying that way. Happiness to all,” the 78-year-old finished off.
In fact, Angelina Jolie said something similar when asked about the Liz Taylor talk at the Monday premiere of Salt. “I have never heard that before,” she said of rumors that she would play the movie legend. “I don’t think that anybody could be better than Elizabeth Taylor.”
