Tributes have flooded in for the late Dame Elizabeth Taylor in the wake of her death, with Sir Elton John describing her as a “Hollywood giant”, Bang Showbiz reports.
The screen legend passed away at 1.28am on Wednesday morning (23.03.11) at Los Angeles’ Cedars-Sinai Medical Center – where she had been receiving treatment for the last few weeks for congestive heart failure – surrounded by her four children, Michael Wilding, Christopher Wilding, Liza Todd and Maria Burton.

Elton, 63, wrote on his twitter page: “We have just lost a Hollywood giant; more importantly, we have lost an incredible human being.”
Whoopi Goldberg mourned the loss of her “diamond loving” friend on her Facebook page, thanking the ‘Cleopatra’ star for helping her during her career.
