Stars turn out to remember Taylor

Dame Elizabeth Taylor died in March aged 79

Colin Farrell, Sir Michael Caine and Sir Elton John joined family and friends of Dame Elizabeth Taylor during a private memorial service for the Oscar-winning star.

The actress' son Michael Wilding told the 400 people gathered in a theatre at the Warner Bros studio lot in Burbank that it was especially meaningful to have so many friends on hand to celebrate his mother's spirit.

The Academy Award-winning star of Butterfield 8 and Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? was 79 when she died on March 23 of congestive heart failure in Los Angeles.

Spokeswoman Sally Morrison said Colin hosted a service, which featured memories of the violet-eyed beauty.

Virginia Woolf director Mike Nichols put together a touching video message for Sunday's event, grandson Rhys Tivey played Amazing Grace on the trumpet and Sir Elton performed Blue Eyes.
