Elizabeth Taylor is one of the names that is at the top of the list when it comes to old Hollywood aristocracy. She was an American actress. Because of her strikingly distinctive appearance, violet eyes, and charm on film, the British-American actress was one of the most in-demand actresses throughout her career. She was one of the first people people thought of when they saw an actress.
Richard Burton was Taylor’s boyfriend at the time, and the two of them appeared in a number of films together, including “Cleopatra,” “The Taming of the Shrew,” and “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?” Taylor gave some of her most famous performances in these films.
Taylor’s personal life, in addition to her very successful career, was quite open to the public for her whole life. She had a total of eight marriages, including two to Burton, who was her husband twice. In spite of the controversy that surrounded her romantic relationships, Taylor was finally successful in having the family that she had always desired. She went on to have four children: Michael Wilding Jr. and Christopher Edward Wilding, whom she had with her second husband Michael Wilding; Liza Todd, whom she had with her third husband Mike Todd; and Maria Burton, whom she adopted when she married her fifth husband Richard Burton. Michael Wilding Jr. and Christopher Edward Wilding were both named after their father. Taylor will be remembered by her four children as well as her ten grandkids after her passing.
All of Taylor’s grandkids are now adults, and in recent years, they have been talking about the cherished recollections they have of their late grandma and describing what she was truly like. Her grandchildren are as follows: Naomi Wilding, Laela Wilding, and Tarquin Wilding are all children of Taylor’s son Michael; Caleb Wilding, Andrew Wilding, and Lowell Wilding are children of Christopher; Quinn Tivey and Rhys Tivey are children of Liza Todd; and finally, Eliza Carson and Richard McKeown are children of Maria.
Both Quinn and his late grandma had the most beautiful eyes, and both of them had the desire to help others who were suffering from various ailments. Quinn has shown to be quite similar to his grandmother in many ways.
The fact that Taylor was a grandmother was the thing that mattered the most to her, despite the fact that she was beautiful, had a successful profession, was politically active, and had many romantic relationships. Taylor was blessed with a total of ten grandkids, all of whom are now adults.
“When we were in bed together, she would offer me advise as we watched movies and had conversations. According to Magzter, the grandson Quinn shared his thoughts, saying, “Those are some of the ways I remember her most.” His mother’s name is Liza Todd, and her father’s name is Taylor.
During an interview in March 2021 with TODAY, Laela discussed how Taylor’s participation in various types of activism sprang from her desire to spread a message of optimism to the rest of the world.
According to what Laela has heard, “I suppose that she very early on was impacted by the AIDS problem.” “She had the impression that others weren’t acknowledging the seriousness of the situation. Therefore, she placed herself in the spotlight in an earnest and genuine manner.
Not only has Taylor’s work ethic, devotion to her art, and enthusiasm been an inspiration to her legion of devoted followers, but it has also rubbed off on her own family. Laela said:
“She was the kind of person who, upon seeing an injustice, immediately began to speak up against it, and she never ceased doing so.” Who she was is incredibly important, even if it may not be in the ways that a person first imagines when they think of her.
According to TODAY, Elizabeth Taylor established both the American Foundation for AIDS Research in 1985 and the Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation (ETAF) in 1991. Taylor was one of the founding members of both organizations. Because they want to continue Taylor’s legacy of activism and commitment to the cause, the whole family has made an effort to become involved in the foundation. This is something that is very important to them. Even Quinn, Taylor’s grandson, is involved in the operation of ETAF.
According to his biography, which can be read on the website of the foundation, Quinn has worked for the organization both as an official and as an ambassador, representing it both domestically and globally. In addition to that, at Taylor’s request, he is serving as a co-trustee of her estate.
In an interview with PEOPLE that took place in the year 2021, Quinn discussed his belief that Taylor would be really happy to see the foundation continue to be so active and helpful. He explained:
“My grandmother, Elizabeth Taylor, started the Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation thirty years ago to offer direct care for persons living with HIV and AIDS as well as others whose lives have been touched by the disease. I am honored to see ETAF continue her work, which includes educating legislators, raising awareness for the public, debunking myths, and decreasing fear and stigma. The fight against HIV/AIDS was such an important part of her legacy, and although the fight is far from over, I am honored to see ETAF continue her work. I have no doubt that Grandma would be pleased with this effort as well.
The HIV Is Not A Crime campaign is one of the foundation’s initiatives, and its primary goal is to revise and update antiquated laws that target persons living with HIV. By addressing the problems on a state-by-state level, the objective of the project is to modify the laws so that they are more in line with present scientific understanding.
In addition, Quinn said that “Grandma would have been really pleased of the work that is being done via the “HIV Is Not A Crime” project.” Grandma was fearless and lived her life to the fullest, always standing up for what she believed in. She would never give in to outside pressure, and she would never be a supporter of maintaining the status quo if she didn’t believe it was in the best interests of the people.
Quinn not only honors the memory of his departed grandmother by carrying on the legacy she left behind, but he also strikingly resembles her, particularly in the vivid eyes he inherited from her. It is reasonable to conclude that the memory of Taylor will never be forgotten because of her grandkids, who have shown that they are lovely on the inside as well as on the outside.
