Personal Quote:

[on Michael Jackson] He is part of my heart. We would do anything for each other. See more »


Liz was a close friend of Montgomery Clift until his death in 1966. They met for the first time when Paramount decided that she had to accompany him to the premiere of The Heiress because they were both to star in the upcoming A Place in the Sun. They liked each other right away. Clift used to call her "Bessie Mae"... See more »
