DAME Elizabeth Taylor has become one of the first people to see the much-anticipated Michael Jackson concert rehearsal movie THIS IS IT - she sat through a screening of the film at the weekend (17-18Oct09).
The movie veteran, who was one of the King of Pop's closest friends, hosted a private screening of the film at Mgm studios in Hollywood.
Her guests included her companion Jason Winters and Marlon Brando's son Miko, who was Jackson's former assistant, according to U.S. news show Entertainment Tonight.
Taylor also invited the King of Pop's entire staff to the screening.
She was overheard saying, "The film was pure genius," as she led an standing ovation at the end of the film.
On Saturday (17Oct09), Taylor spent much of the day with Jackson's three children on a tour of Universal Studio's backlot.

About the film "THIS IS IT" of course the film is pure genius. With Michael Jackson in it THE KING OF POP-the best of the best in the world there will NEVER EVER be another like him as an ARTIST, DANCER,and MUSIC, all his songs and everything he did from all the four corners of the world. We were so fortunate to have seen and heard Michael Jackson here on earth. May he rest in peace.A true fan

No, that's actually Mila Kunis in the photo, who is dating Macaulay Culkin so it makes sense she would be beside him.
