"I've always admitted that I'm ruled by my passions, and I can't pretend I didn't know what I was doing when I became involved with Richard," Taylor wrote in her memoir. The married actors' affair on the Rome set of Cleopatra made headlines – and prompted the Vatican to accuse Taylor of "erotic vagrancy." The couple eventually ended their respective marriages and walked down the aisle. But after almost a decade together, their tempestuous relationship had earned them the nickname The Battling Burtons – and they divorced. Though their fiery first marriage fizzled, Taylor and Burton (who had adopted a daughter, Maria, born in 1961) gave wedded bliss another shot – briefly. Wags joked that Burton simply wanted to be near all the jewelry he had given his ex. "Even though there were rough times, I wouldn't give up one minute of my time with Richard Burton," Taylor wrote in her autobiography.
they first met on the set of Cleopatra in October of 1960.
