He's Coming Home: Richard Burton To Neighbor Liz Taylor On Hollywood Walk Of Fame

richardbody
A collective swoon for dysfunctionally-wonderful romances everywhere, please. On March 1, Richard Burton, the seven-time, handsomely-rugged Oscar nominee, will get his own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Despite being an incredible talent and starring in some of Hollywood's biggest blockbusters — Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, The Robe, and Cleopatra — he is perhaps best known for his tumultuously passionate relationship with the late Elizabeth Taylor.

The two met during the filming of Cleopatra, and set headlines on fire with their on-again, off-again romance until his death in 1984. Our hearts skip a little beat in learning that Burton's star will be placed next to Taylor's as an ode to their lifelong infatuation. The Telegraph reports that in his last love letter to Taylor (which she was buried with), Burton wrote, "Home is where Elizabeth is," and, said Taylor, "he wanted me to come home." In a weird twist of fate, Burton's the one who's now coming home.
