Elizabeth Taylor, Larry Fortensky

Elizabeth Taylor met her eighth and final husband, construction worker Larry Fortensky, in 1988 when the two were both in treatment at Betty Ford. Their vices? Pills for her; beer for him. Although he lived with the screen legend in her Beverly Hills mansion, the 20-years-younger Fortensky insisted on keeping his day job. But after Taylor made him quit in order to travel with her, the marriage went south, and in 1996 she filed for divorce. Still, the two remained close and she sent him $1,000 a month until her 2011 death. Taylor even left Fortensky $1 million in her will.
