Elizabeth Taylor was one of the main beauties of Hollywood of her time and the object of desire for millions of men. The actress herself also fell in love regularly, and was married eight times. But only one of her chosen ones, Taylor herself, offered to play a wedding. How did it come about? I found out "Rambler".
This was the case when the wedge had to be kicked out with the wedge. Taylor was very upset with her romance with director Stanley Donen, so MGM decided to send Liz to the UK to shoot Ivanhoe. There, Taylor met her future husband - actor Michael Wilding, who was 20 years older than the actress.
At the time of his acquaintance with Elizabeth, Wilding was already married, but the beauty was hardly interested in this. In matters of love, she was not guided by morality and knew that any man would sooner or later be at her feet.
And so it happened: Michael left his wife, after which Taylor invited him to marry her. In 1952, the lovers tied the knot. The wedding was modest and no-nonsense - the actors did not want to draw too much attention to themselves.
Wilding and Taylor lived together for five years. During this time, the actress gave birth to her wife two sons. At the same time, she managed to quite cleverly combine family life and career, but soon Elizabeth was bored with the role of head of the family, and she divorced Michael.
