Jane Fonda remembers costar Elizabeth Taylor via Twitter. News of Elizabeth Taylor's death Wednesday morning had friends and fans busy on Twitter paying respects and sharing fond memories. The Oscar-winning actress, who spent some time on Twitter herself, was a celebrated Hollywood legend and her fellow stars were among the many to pay tribute.

Jane Fonda, Taylor's costar in the 1976 film "Blue Bird," wrote, "I knew elizabeth Taylor and I can tell you she was kind, brave, generous and loyal. I am sad."

Meanwhile Kim Kardashian, who interviewed the "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" actress about life and love (Taylor was married eight times to seven men) for the February Harper's Bazaar, tweeted "she will always be my idol!"

But many, including Joan Rivers, respected Taylor the most for her humanitarian work: "She was the 1st major celebrity to join me in the fight against AIDS when it wasn't a popular cause," Rivers said.

As the tweets continue to pour in we will post them here:
