Elizabeth Taylor Marriages: What 'Liz & Dick' Were Really Like

If you got sucked into watching "Liz & Dick" on Sunday night, take heart -- you weren't alone.

The entire Twitterverse seemed to come out to rag on the cringeworthy Lifetime movie starring Lindsay Lohan as Elizabeth Taylor, taking particular note of the 26-year-old star's lukewarm chemistry with co-star Grant Bowler as Richard Burton. As Heather Cocks of the website GoFugYourself.com snarkily tweeted, "The chemistry between LiLo and Grant Bowler is the equivalent of trying to light a cigarette with an ice cube."

But hey, it could have been worse. Taylor's many marriages -- eight, in total -- could easily have supplied enough drama for a whole series of Lifetime movies starring Lohan. We're shuddering just thinking about it.

Below, a look back at seven of La Liz's famous loves.
