Elizabeth Taylor Ran An AIDS Safe House So That Patients Could Receive Life-Saving Medication
Hollywood movie star Elizabeth Taylor ran an underground AIDs Safe House where patients could access life-saving medication.
As if the Hollywood legend wasn't fabulous enough already, it has been revealed that the star provided experimental HIV medication to patients.
In an exclusive interview with Entertainment Tonight, model and AIDs activist Kathy Ireland revealed:
“Talk about fearless in her home in Bel-Air. It was a safe house. A lot of the work that she did, it was illegal, but she was saving lives.
"It was in a time when it was not something to do. Business associates pleaded with her, ‘Leave this thing alone.’ She received death threats. Friends hung up on her when she asked for help, but something that I love about Elizabeth is her courage."
Kathy Ireland made the revelations to Entertainment Tonight.
While Ireland didn't elaborate on the work that Taylor did, it re-emphasised her commitment to AIDs and HIV awareness.
The actress began raising money for research in 1985 and founded the Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation in 1991 which raised millions of dollars for research and awareness.
