Elizabeth Taylor Shares Richard Burton's Letters
The actress revealed her late husband's personal notes in a new book.
The latest issue of Vanity Fair features a cover story on Elizabeth Taylor in which she shares intimate love letters from her late husband, actor Richard Burton. Titled “A Love Too Big to Last,” the piece is an excerpt of the upcoming book Furious Love: Elizabeth Taylor, Richard Burton, and the Marriage of the Century.
The couple made headlines in the ླྀs when they fell in love despite being married to other people. Burton and Taylor married and divorced twice between 1964 and 1976. Burton’s letters spoke of their loving and sometimes tumultuous relationship. In the Vanity Fair article, Taylor also recites a never-before-read letter from Burton just days before his death to Vanity Fair contributing editor Sam Kashner and co-author Nancy Schoenberger.
“Richard was magnificent in every sense of the word,” she told Vanity Fair. “Attentive, loving—that was Richard ... from those first moments in Rome we were always madly and powerfully in love. We had more time but not enough.”
