In the early 1960s, there were no hotter Hollywood celebrities than sultry Elizabeth Taylor and hunky Richard Burton. When the two co-starred in the 1961 film, Cleopatra, sparks flew. Since they were both married to other people at the time, their affair caused quite the scandal and made headlines in all the gossip tabloids of the day. The lovers seem oblivious to their fans’ disapproval. They continued on with their steamy affair and, once they were both officially divorced from their spouses, they got married themselves. Not once, but twice! They were married from 1964 to 1974 and again from 1975 to 1976.
