Taylor, 78 was recently admitted to Cedars-Sinai for treatment concerning congestive heart failure. She previously had surgery for a leaky heart valve in 2009, Reuters reported.

Due to her condition, Taylor had to miss a recent amfAR event held in New York to receive an award for her work in AIDS research. Elton John accepted the award in her place.

Taylor is the recipient of two Academy Awards for her roles in the movies "Butterfield 8" and "Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?"
