'Cleopatra’ (1963) - Elizabeth Taylor & Richard Burton Liz Taylor and Richard Burton’s fiery relationship is one of the most famous in celebrity history. The pair were married and divorced a couple of times and kept gossipers the world over chattering with their wild behaviour.Their beginnings were not without controversy either – Liz left her singer hubby Eddie Fisher for the Welsh acting legend thanks to a public affair during the shooting of the Egyptian epic. Taylor and Fisher’s pairing had always been slightly frowned upon anyway since Liz’s ex before Eddie was Eddie’s best friend who had died. And Eddie left America’s darling Debbie Reynolds for Taylor. Confusing, eh?!
