Elizabeth Taylor Almost Passed On 'Cleopatra,' But Burt Reynolds's Advice Made It Worth A Million Bucks

By Alex Maxx

Elizabeth Taylor is one of the most famous actresses of all time. She booked her first gig at just 10 years old, a small role in There's One Born Every Minute in 1942. Taylor went on to star in countless films like A Place in the Sun, Giant, and Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, but one of her most well-known roles was Cleopatra in 1963. The complicated love story of the beautiful pharaoh soon became synonymous with Taylor.

And if it hadn't been for Burt Reynolds, that perfect pairing might not have happened.
