Sometimes you need a good friend to tell you to get your act together, and Elizabeth Taylor‘s pal Maury Hopson did just that some 30 years ago. In the late 1970s, a somewhat depressed Liz was living in DC, spending a whole lot of time in bed, drinking, and gaining weight. Then Maury proposed they go to a “luxurious fat farm” together.
Maury took photos of their excursion, and while the timing of their release is a little suspect, they’re delightful nonetheless. (Also, apparently Liz lost 22 lbs. while she was there.) You can see all of the pics over at Vanity Fair, but we’ve included a few of our favorites below.
this is some kind of spaceship or something.
