Ailing Taylor Rubbishes Health Fears

Hollywood icon DAME ELIZABETH TAYLOR has blasted reports she's unable to leave her home due to ailing health - insisting she feels better than ever.

Friends of the CLEOPATRA actress, 73, are fearful for the health of the veteran star, who is reportedly suffering from debilitating Parkinson's disease and scoliosis.

But her publicist SALLY MORRISON counters,"She's not bedridden. She's jumping around like a two-year-old. She's stronger and better than she's been in a long time.

"She was at SIR ELTON JOHN's OSCAR party not long ago and walked along the whole press line. She's in robust health and feeling good.

"Liz has been attending lots of business meetings for her jewellery line launch. She's very cheerful."
