Elizabeth Taylor's 'steamy' love letter to 'cheating' hubby up for sale at 35K pounds
A recently discovered love letter written by Elizabeth Taylor to her "(still) husband", Richard Burton, about her 'pure animal pleasure' has been put up for sale for 35,000 pounds.
The private letter, which reads "I wish I could tell you of my love for you, of my fear, my pure animal pleasure of you, my jealousy, my anger at you..", was written in pencil, the Daily Express reported.
The love letter, which was left behind by Burton at a luxury home rented in California by the Hollywood couple, was discovered in a book in a drawer in the bedroom by the owner of the property after the couple had left.
Paul Fraser, founder of Paul Fraser Collectibles, which is selling the letter, said that Taylor wrote the "steamy letter", which manifested the intense mixture of love and anger for her philandering husband, on their 10th wedding anniversary, just three months before she and Burton divorced.
Taylor signed off the letter with the words "Anyway I lust thee, Your (still) Wife. P.S. O'Love, let us never take each other for granted again! P.P.S. How about that - 10 years!!"
