March 23, 2011 -- Elizabeth Taylor was a woman of abundance. She was endowed with outsized beauty, outsized fame and outsized appetites.

"I feel very adventurous," she was once quoted as saying. "There are so many doors to be opened, and I'm not afraid to look behind them."

Though a brilliant actress, her remarkable talent was frequently outshone by her offscreen antics. "My troubles all started because I have a woman's body and a child's emotions," she once said.

Over the years, she would become as famous (if not more) for her love life as for her acting.

She was married a staggering eight times to seven men -- she wed Richard Burton, the love of her life, twice.

Throughout her life, she noted, people would remark that she was blessed with everything. "I've got one answer," she said. "I haven't had tomorrow."

Sadly, there are no more tomorrows for Taylor, who died March 23, 2011 at Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles, where she checked in six weeks earlier suffering from congestive heart failure. And perhaps just as sadly, no more lovers.

Here's a look back at her many marriages:
