LOS ANGELES (REUTER) - Actress Elizabeth Taylor, beset with health and personal problems in recent years, has been diagnosed with a benign brain tumour, her publicist said on Tuesday. The tumour will be surgically removed at an undisclosed location on Feb. 17, and Taylor is expected to "recover fully and without complications," her publicist said in a statement. The surgery will take place 10 days before she turns 65, and the day after the taping of an AIDS fundraiser celebrating her birthday. During the operation a "benign mass" will be removed from the lining of Taylor`s left frontal lobe. It was found during her annual check-up on Monday. The statement said Taylor was "in good spirits." Taylor`s planned trips to Istanbul and Chechnya at the end of February have been cancelled, it added. The announcement is the latest in a series of personal setbacks for the two-time Academy Award-winner. In recent years, she has had both her hips replaced, and was in hospital for an irregular heartbeat. She has also battled weight and drug dependency problems. News of the tumour comes two days short of one year since she revealed she was filing for divorce from her seventh husband, construction worker Larry Fortensky. The AIDS fundraiser will be taped on Feb. 16 at the Pantages Theatre in Hollywood, and will benefit the Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation. Taylor, whose friend Rock Hudson died of AIDS, has been an active campaigner in the fight against the disease. The show will be televised by ABC later in the month. Taylor`s acting career began at the age of 10 in the 1942 film "Lassie Come Home". She won her first Oscar in 1960 for her role as a call-girl in "Butterfield 8" and the second in 1967 for her portrayal of a foul-mouthed, alcoholic wife in Edward Albee`s "Who`s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" Her last big screen appearance was a cameo role in the 1994 live-action version of "The Flintstones."
