Liz Taylor Hospitalized

Elizabeth Taylor is reportedly being treated for a mild case of pneumonia in a Los Angeles hospital. Reuters reports that the Oscar-winning actress, 68, was admitted on Friday to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center and is expected to be released by week's end. Health problems have plagued the star for years. Since she was thrown from a horse as a child actress in "National Velvet" she has suffered back troubles and in recent years she has had back, hip and brain surgery (to remove a tumor). In May, the British-born Taylor was named a Dame by Queen Elizabeth II.
