The oft-mentioned nexus between Hollywood and Washington, D.C., usually centers on money. Politicians want entertainment-industry money to help fund their campaigns and politically minded entertainers want to play a role in national politics.

But in the case of actress Elizabeth Taylor, who died on Wednesday, her ties to the city were also personal, and they made a difference in the lives of many Washingtonians who have never been to Capitol Hill.
