Taylor Approved Topless Pictures

DAME ELIZABETH TAYLOR once gave a paparazzo permission to sell pictures of her sunbathing topless, after hunting him down so she could approve the saucy snaps.
Veteran actor George Hamilton makes the revelation in a new memoir, which documents his year-long affair with the Hollywood legend.
After Taylor was snapped with her breasts exposed during a Spanish vacation in 1987 - when she was 55 - she handed Hamilton the task of tracking down the photos before they could be published. When he did so, Hamilton was shocked to find Taylor loved them, and gave the photographer the go ahead to sell them.
He writes, "(She said) 'I like them, don't you? My breasts look rather good don't you think?' 'You look spectacular', I was forced to admit."
"(She said) 'I hate censoring the press anyhow. Not my style. I'm a First Amendment gal.'"
The couple dated from 1986 to 1987 after mutual friends set them up - and Hamilton describes the intensity of their affair in Don't Mind If I Do, which hits bookstores later this month (Sep08): "She was a dame in the best old sense of the word. She'd drink with you, dance with you, play cards with you. Pig out with you."
