What is Elizabeth Taylor doing these days? How is her health?
—Dody W., South Dakota

Elizabeth Taylor, 69, is in good health and remains very active in her charity work and promoting her perfumes. Given all the illnesses she's endured, Taylor doesn't take her good health for granted and doesn't feel bitter. "There must be some reason that God wants me to live. There must be something left for me to do. And I have to find out what that something is and go out there and do it." Taylor, who was born in London to American parents, has won two Oscars and has been in dozens of movies, including Giant and National Velvet. She was most recently in the ABC movie These Old Broads with Debbie Reynolds, Shirley MacLaine, and Joan Collins.
