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.
