Elizabeth Taylor makes first outing ‘in months’

Elizabeth Taylor went to see Andrea Bocelli at the Hollywood Bowl, a rare outing for the film legend.
Elizabeth Taylor went to the Hollywood Bowl to hear Andrea Bocelli in concert, the first night out in months for the big-screen legend.

Taylor, bound to a wheelchair by scoliosis, said her mind and soul “were transported by his beauty, his voice, his inner being.” The 77-year-old actress posted online messages through the Twitter social network after the Italian tenor’s concert Monday night. “I went to see Andrea Bocelli last night. The first time I’ve been out in months. The Hollywood Bowl allowed me to use my wheelchair,” Taylor’s first tweet said. “My mind, my soul were transported by his beauty, his voice, his inner being. God has kissed this man and I thank God for it,” she wrote in a second message. Taylor opened her Twitter account this year as “DameElizabeth” at the suggestion of her close friend, model-actress-author-businesswoman Kathy Ireland, her publicist Dick Guttman said. Taylor is “very adventurous” and “exceedingly active” despite health problems that sent her to a hospital for a week last month, Guttman said. She is working on a new perfume to follow up on her popular White Diamonds, he said.
