Angelina Jolie Defeats Catherine Zeta-Jones To Portray Elizabeth Taylor
Hollywood leading lady Angelina Jolie is an ultimate winner as she has defeated actress Catherine Zeta-Jones to portray the role of Elizabeth Taylor in her biopic.
The sources close to director Mike Nichols informed, "Angelina just shaded it in his mind and will now portray the icon, whose turbulent love life with Richard Burton made headlines in the sixties and seventies.”
Russell Crowe, Clive Owen and Colin Farrell are among the favourites to play Burton.
Meanwhile, Jolie, 35, also added that she is ‘honoured’ to play Taylor. "I’m fascinated by her and the mystery and mystique that have always surrounded her. We haven’t got a script yet but as soon as we have something good enough we’ll make it."'
The film will be based on the book ‘Furious Love’ by Sam Kashner and Nancy Schoenberger.
