Dame Elizabeth Taylor has refused to undergo any further surgeries despite the crippling neck pain she has.
Taylor, 78, who now mostly uses a wheelchair, is reportedly feeling too weak to have any more operations.
She has been in hospital more than 100 times in the last 25 years to attend to back problems and have her hips replaced.
According to the Sunday Express, despite suffering from scoliosis – a curvature of the spine – and coping with a sore neck, Taylor is refusing any more operations.
"I won't go as far as to say she has given up but she is adamant she can't face another operation," the Daily Star quoted a source as telling the publication.
"Some mornings her neck is in such acute pain she is barely able to lift her head.
"She spends most of the day sitting in a chair with her head slumped on her shoulder. It's the only position in which she feels anything like comfortable.
"It must be hellish for her but she says she is more sick of seeing the inside of an operating theatre than anything else.
"She told me: 'This is no way to live, forever in hospital', but the truth is she urgently needs an operation to relieve the pressure and pain her crooked spine is causing," the source added.
