She's been through two hip replacement procedures, an op to remove a benign brain tumour, the loss of several loved ones, a battle with alcholism and a string of divorces.

There's really not much that life can throw at Elizabeth Taylor that she hasn't dealt with already.

But this week the grande dame of the acting world called for a little extra help, asking fans to pray for her as she checks in for heart surgery.

Elizabeth used her Twitter page to explain that she would be having a pioneering heart procedure.

"It's very new and involves repairing my leaky valve using a clip device… so that my heart will function better," she told her 157,389 followers.

"Any prayers you happen to have lying around I would dearly appreciate".

"I'll let you know when it's all over. Love you Elizabeth".

Public appearances by the violet-eyed Oscar winner have been few of late.

She's only ventured into the limelight twice recently. On one occasion she attended a dinner for Aids research – one of her favourite causes – and on another to bid farewell to her friend Michael Jackson at his private funeral.
