Elizabeth Taylor was the first tabloid star, with fans and haters alike all interested in her love life perhaps more than her films. With eight marriages to seven different men, her relationships provided a lot of fodder for gossips. She supposedly married so many times due to her personal motto on romance being, "Nothing comes off until the ring goes on."
Conrad "Nicky" Hilton Jr., May 1950 - February 1951
The son of Conrad Hilton, founder of Hilton Hotels, was as troubled as he was attractive. Addicted to booze, gambling, and heroin, he also had a well-known violent streak. And he apparently had a gigantic penis, according to one ex-girlfriend who said in the biography Liz, "He had had absolutely the largest penis—wider than a beer can and much longer—I have ever seen. To make love to him was akin to fornicating with a horse." At the time she married him, Elizabeth was 18-years-old and had been working for most of her life. She was sick of being controlled by the studio and her stage mother. Saying of her first marriage, "I had to escape and I had only two options—go to college or get married. I chose the latter."
