Dame Elizabeth Taylor's Tears Due To Rib Injury

LATEST: DAME ELIZABETH TAYLOR's tearful departure from a gala CANNES FILM FESTIVAL screening last week (21MAY03) was due to a cracked rib.

The NATIONAL VELVET screen idol was helped by aides to leave a showing of her 1956 classic movie GIANT at the French movie extravaganza, causing intense speculation over her unusual behaviour.

But the PAGESIX website reports that the 71-year-old star cracked a rib when she was gripped too tightly by an overzealous bodyguard upon arriving in the French town.

However, she managed to ready herself to attend her annual AMERICAN FOUNDATION FOR AIDS RESEARCH fete that night, which raised $1.4 million (GBP930,000).
