Elizabeth Taylor announced Tuesday afternoon that she’ll undergo a procedure on her heart to repair a leaky valve. Over three messages on her verified Twitter page, the two-time Oscar winner and recipient of the Academy’s Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award writes: “Dear Friends, I would like to let you know before it gets in the papers that I am going into the hospital to have a procedure on my heart… It’s very new and involves repairing my leaky valve using a clip device, without open heart surgery, so that my heart will function better…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.”
