Elizabeth Taylor has filed a $20 million lawsuit against the National Enquirer.

The lawsuit, filed in Superior Court in Los Angeles, said the actress was hospitalized with near-fatal pneumonia when a front-page headline June 12 screamed: "Liz Docs Furious. She's Boozing it Up in the Hospital."The lawsuit also cited a Jan. 19 article headlined: "Liz's Beautiful Face Ravaged by Killer Disease. Doctors Order Suicide Watch After They Finally Diagnose the Mystery Illness."

The lawsuit said that story suggested Taylor had lupus, a destructive skin condition.

Taylor says the Enquirer was notified about inaccuracies in its stories and headlines before publication.
