Elizabeth Taylor was in the hospital Sunday, two days after she was slightly injured in a fall at her home just hours before a party to celebrate her 66th birthday.

The Academy Award-winning actress was recovering from Friday's fall at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, her publicist said Sunday."I just spoke with her. She's doing fine," said Shirine Ann Coburn. "There's some bruising, nothing serious."

Taylor was expected to be released within a few days.

"She was kneeling to get something from the nightstand, and when she straightened up, she fell," Coburn said.

Coburn denied a report that Taylor blacked out after the fall.

"She didn't hit her head and she was never unconscious," she said.

Taylor, who turned 66 on Friday, had brain surgery a year ago to remove a benign golfball-sized tumor. She was hospitalized last March 1 - a week after the surgery - because she suffered a mild seizure, a common occurrence after such an operation.

She had both hips replaced in recent years, then had to return for hip-adjustment surgery in October 1995 because one of the operations left her with one leg shorter than the other.

Serious respiratory problems nearly killed her in 1990 and kept her hospitalized for three months.
