“She was the last of the true Hollywood icons, a great beauty, a great actress and continually fascinating to the world throughout her tumultuous life and career.” — Actress Joan Collins

“We have just lost a Hollywood giant; more importantly, we have lost an incredible human being.” — Singer and composer Elton John
“Elizabeth is known throughout the world as an Academy Award-winning actress, but what is less known is her devotion to philanthropic causes and in 1980, she received the center’s highest honor, its Humanitarian Award.
