There was a big difference between Judy and Elizabeth. Taylor was a gorgeoud child from the start... she was MGM's golden child. Judy was not the most attractive growing up in the studio's eyes and I think she was given more drugs and suffered more psychological damage as opposed to Liz, who was more the coddled princess. Both were mad talented, but I do think Liz had the easier path. I read a Garland biography and the way the studios treated her was terrible. Diet pills, diets and very porr treatment that hurt a growing girl's self esteem. Taylor had it much easier. Her addictions stemmed more form the time she hurt her back and started taking pain pills.
