LOS ANGELES -- Elizabeth Taylor has been hospitalized for treatment of congestive heart failure.

Her spokeswoman, Sally Morrison, said the Oscar-winning actress was admitted to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center within the past couple of days.

The 78-year-old Taylor is being treated for symptoms caused by congestive heart failure, a condition she's suffered from for several years.

Morrison said it's unknown how long Taylor might be in the hospital. She added that Taylor's family appreciated the support from fans, but asked for privacy to allow the medical team space to do its work.
