The Hollywood greats famously enjoyed a passionate but tumultuous romance after first meeting on the set of Cleopatra in 1963, and wed twice over a 13-year period, but both marriages ended in divorce.
Following Taylor's death in March (11), the star was remembered for her film roles, and her colourful love life - especially for her time with Burton, but the actor's widow Sally Burton insists the constant references to Taylor make her angry.
During a visit to his birthplace of Port Talbot, Wales last week (ends09Oct11), Sally told reporters, ""I get p**sed off with all the talk of the great love story.
""Yes, they were in love but they got divorced twice, that means their marriage didn't work.""
She also revealed the pain of losing Burton a year after she married him in 1983 still haunts her, adding, ""When you marry someone older than you it's almost taken for granted that one day you might lose them, but I did not expect to lose him when I was still in my 30s and he was only in his 50s.""
