Elizabeth Taylor, 78, apparently suffered symptoms from congestive heart failure and is being treated at a Los Angeles hospital.

"Her family and close friends are appreciative of the warm support and interest of her loyal fans but have asked that people respect her privacy and allow her medical team the time and space to focus on restoring her back to health,” said Taylor representative Jamie Cadwell.

Taylor, a two-time Academy Award winner, underwent surgery in 2009 for a leaky heart valve and frequently updated her fans through Twitter about her condition. So far, Taylor has not posted anything about her latest trip to Cedars-Sinai Hospital.

"The (health) issue is being addressed," Cadwell’s statement reads. "She is currently being kept in the hospital for monitoring."

The London-born star won two Academy Awards for best actress for "BUtterfield 8" in 1961 and "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf" in 1967.
