The star surprisingly made her first public outing in order to help promote an Aids research center in Los Angeles. Retired actress Elizabeth Taylor, who is known to be suffering from a number of severe illnesses, cut a red ribbon to signify the new UCLA Clinical AIDS Research and Education Center's official opening Friday and announced the creation of the Elizabeth Taylor Endowment Fund, which will support the center through grants and private donations.

''Acting is, to me now, artificial," said Taylor to The Associated Press. "Seeing people suffer is real. It couldn't be more real. Some people don't like to look at it in the face because it's painful. But if nobody does, then nothing gets done. I can't sit back and be complacent, and none of us should be. I get around now in a wheelchair, but I get around," she continued. Also attending the event was rocker Tom Petty and actress Carrie Fisher.
