It is a very funny thing. The rich and famous lead lives that seem to preclude the sort of 'introspection' that you and I might have.

They seem to divorce, split up the kids, re-marry and enter same-sex relationships in a consequence-free environment. Liz here married eight times! What hadn't she learnt by marriage no. 4? Or what did Artie Shaw think about his 8th marriage - this one's a keeper?

@Mr Stillwater,
I read in a Vanity Fair article years ago that Zsa Zsa got into an elevator in New York and the gentleman on the elevator greeted her warmly with a smile. She looked at him cooly and asked "Do I know you?" He replied "You should. I was your fourth husband."

If you remove the obvious items like polygamy (and polyandry, sauce for the goose!!) amongst folks whose religion is OK with it, the actors and actresses seem to be very comfortable with multiple marriages. There is the 'Hollywood Marriage";

Quote:
the term has grown to also have strong connotations of a marriage that is of short duration and quickly ends in separation or divorce


I think Liz must have pioneered it....

I was amazed to find a young Liz singing in one of the old movies on TV. Liz can sing quite well. In the Audrey Hepburn's biography it was mentioned that Eddie Fisher was a great fan of Audrey's. Everyone sought the role for Eliza Doolittle in 'My Fair Lady' including our beautiful Liz who was married to Eddie at the time. Eddie had a stake in the movie and a say in selecting the star. He loved Audrey and picked her over Liz. Needless to say Liz was shattered as she had never been second fiddle to anyone. Maybe that explains Eddie's rude awakening with Richard Burton taking over the bedroom.

@talk72000,
Possibly. She could have also been a bit of a tramp, too. I don't think it was her 'acting ability' that managed to get Richie into her bed....

@Mr Stillwater,
I think at the time she was starring as 'Cleopatra' with Richard Burton as Mark Anthony and Rex Harrison as Julius Caesar. It bombed in the box office and almost drove 20th Century Fox into bankruptcy. 'The Sound of Music' with Julie Andrews as Maria on Trapp, the Broadway's 'My Fair Lady - Eliza Doolittle' , saved Fox which after Marvin(?) Davis ownership was acquired by Rupert Murdoch. Liz came back to star in 'Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf' with Richard Burton. She was the Queen of Hollywood as all the gossip magazines had her on their covers at all times.

You are choosing the "moment" on the basis of your sensitivities. What about when she clarmed? An everyday occurence I hope.

In my opinion, the "Hollywood marriage" merry-go-round is a) giving publicity to the movie studios that produced many pictures, and b) prevents those of a religious bent to say they will not go to a movie because the hero/heroine is sleeping with someone without the benefit of marriage.

In other words, the consecutive marriages is hard to criticize, I believe, if one remembers that there are also people that "just cheat."

@ossobuco,
Alright - she's probably not a 'tramp' - but she wasn't a 'serial monogomist' either. How is it that these folk star in movies where the affirm love and monogamy (even the healing power of marriage, I do so love 'The Taming of the Shrew' with Liz hurling abuse at Richard even as they are both falling through three stories of a house) - and at the same time we see them making out like rabbits!! And they seem to shed children all over the place... that's actually the bit that upsets me the most.

@Sglass,
I remember reading an interview many years ago where she stated that she didn't believe in just living with someone. She believed in marriage.

There was something rather honorable about that. Imagine if she'd lived with all of these different guys but never married them. Now THAT, in my book, is a tramp.

@eoe,
Back in the day, a whole lot of people got married because they had sex or very much wanted to. Probably more women than men married for that reason. Contraception was not widely accepted in many locales, nor abortion. Plus there was much teaching about sex being only permissible in marriage. (Does this, er, sound familiar? ) How much any of this was true re certain stars of a certain era, I've no idea.
