Comment: I was wondering if you can determine whether Elizabeth Taylor really has
violet eyes. I've heard she does but have never seen her eyes up close.
From the pictures I've seen they appear blue or dark blue at best. Is it
possible for a person to have true violet colored eyes?

I cannot give you a date but last year in the science section of the NY Times, they had a bit about whether peoples eyes could really change hues from emotion or clothing choices...and they found that in a few cases it was true.

Perhaps it is just the Technicolor or something but when she played Cleopatra they DID look violet...perhaps hers shift as well....

Just a thought..

According to IMDB ( http://imdb.com/name/nm0000072/bio ) she really did. But I don't know how reliable that could be.

She really does have violet eyes. In "National Velvet" there are plenty of closeups of her and they are quite prominent.

There is a pretty good picture of her eyes. Small, but clear.

Clearer, larger picture of her eyes. They've been described as 'violet-blue'.

I think they're gorgeous.

My eyes are kind of bluey-greeney, but when I'm outside on a rainy day I often have people tell me they look grey. Also if I wear blue or green eyeshadow it makes my eyes look more of the other color (blue eyeshadow makes them look green, green makes them look blue). My mom is the same way.

I saw many Elizabeth Taylor in many color films in the days before they produced contact lenses that could be used to alter natural eye color. Taylor's eyes were definitely violet back in the day.


BTW, my eyes were quite brown when I was growing up.

Now (in my mid-fifties) my eyes are green with tiny flecks of hazel (greenish-brown). Believe me: eye color in in my case did change.

I love Elizabeth Taylor's eyes. I'd be disappointed if they weren't real.

My eyes are blue and they change from blue to blue-green, green or green-blue depending on what I'm wearing (clothing and/or make-up). On a "normal" day, they're blue with green flecks near the pupil.

My mother's eyes are grey. She says they were blue when she was younger, but in her 20s she worked at a factory where she soldered (sp?) TV parts. She said the smoke from soldering iron ruined the color. Anyone else ever hear of that?

My mother's eyes looked violet most of the time. So did a girl I played with in elementary school. I was very envious of her eye color.

I haven't met anyone with violet eyes, but make-up, lighting and film tint do impact eye color.
My eyes are sort of blue-green color with a yellow ring around my pupil. My mom has the same thing, the yellow part gets more prominent when she's upset. I wonder if she might meow and pounce.

My eyes are blue-green, and depending upon my mood, the color I wear (both eye makeup and clothing), they will be olive green, slate blue, or just plain grey...or anything in between. They've always done that, since I was a kid.

Adding to the emotion color-change theory:

My eyes are a pretty average shade of green most of the time and can look a little more vibrant if I'm wearing green clothing. But what's really freaky is when I cry they turn REALLY bright green with a dark green ring around the edge. I wish I didn't have to cry to get them to look like that!

My eyes are a medium-light brown, but turn a deep gold (the best comparison I can make is a brand new penny or the color of Captain Morgan's Gold (I have a bottle on my desk)) when I get REALLY REALLY angry. When my friends see my eyes that color, they know to stay the NFBSK away.
I'll see if I can't post a pic of my eye color. That might be an interesting deviation- pics of your eye color!

My eyes are hazel most of the time. But, when I am angry or really excited they are green, when I am sick or sad they are grey and when I am "in the mood" they are blue. My eye doctor said that very few people have mood eyes but,it does happen.

My eyes are green with a distinct hazel ring round the pupil that gets smaller when I'm upset and disappears altogether when I'm very angry...but I guess that's because my pupils might be more dilated than usual as a primitive mechanism to prepare for a fight when I'm angry.

I don't think so. If that were the case, I'd have been exhausted for the last 39 years: I have (very) pale blue eyes with dark gray rims around the irises, always have. Julia Kitten is the same, only hers aren't as pale as mine.

Mosherette:
I could be very wrong, but I think that the first pic you posted was re-colorized. I seem to remember the dress being a pale green in the original.

Again, from fuzzy memory, I remember an article about Liz saying that her eyes were dark blue, that they just appeared violet with the lighting of the early Technicolor films. If you've seen any of the "behind-the scenes" docs about..say Gone With the Wind, and they show how the costumes looked under normal lights, and how they ended up looking on film, sometimes the colors were wildly different.

Along the same lines: I'd posted this one ages ago. Does anyone know what color Marilyn Monroe's eyes were?? Most sources say blue, but the pics of her that have appeared in Playboy recently (Once this past year, once about 4 years ago) they looked very brown.
(Specifically the one of her nude looking from behind a sheer scarf.)

My eyes do the same thing, but they're normally grey-ish blue, and when I'm upset they turn a brilliant bright blue with a dark ring around them. I've always assumed it's some kind of optical illusion (but I wish I could keep that bright blue all the time!). Dark make-up just isn't the same [Frown]

The green getting more vibrant...

In art, green and red are contrast colors. The more red in a painting, the more vibrant greens will be. So yes, the red eyes has something to do with how vibrant your eyes are.

I had a friend in high school whose eyes were a REALLY bright green without crying. A darker shade of that old soda called Surge, if anyone remembers that drink!

ETA: Looking around the room I'm in now...they were about the darker shade of green on a Mountain Dew can...

::raises hand:: Yet another 'eye-color-changer' here. Officially, they're blue. However, if I wear pinks or reds, they'll turn green. Blacks and grays, they turn gray.

And to bring Liz Taylor back into this, when I was little, one of the neighbors told my mom that I was going to be the next Elizabeth Taylor when I grew up. My mom asked why, and the neighbor said, "Those lovely violet eyes? Who else in the world has them?" So this neighbor at some point happened to glance at my eyes when they looked violet. (Which they've done on *very* rare occasion, and there's no consistency as to what will cause that.)

Hopping on,
Mine are grey, sometimes darkening to blue.
My aunt's (not related by blood) are hazel, with rings of purple and orange on the inside and outside of the iris. They will noticibly change size and intensity with what she's wearing; she'll put on a jacket, and you can watch them change in about 30sec.

To this day, I'm not sure what color my eyes are. Three people looking at my eyes at exactly the same time will announce three different colors--gray, blue, and green. Yes, this has actually happened. They're kind of a pale color, but, as I'm very fair, it looks okay.

DH2B has the most beautiful eyes in the world. By the pupil, they're a dark brown, which fades to a light brown, which fades to green, which fades to pale blue, all of which is surrounded by a ring of very dark blue. He has rainbow eyes. I hope all of our future children have them.

But mightn't a dark circle that was sometimes there and sometimes not have to do with eye fatigue?

I've been trying to google for more info about dark circles around the iris, and I have not come up with anything that indicates that it has to do with fatigue. I'm guessing I misheard or misunderstood something about dark circles under the eye. If anyone knows anything about those gray circles around the iris I would be very interested to learn about them.

I have what people (meaning, lotr geeks) refer to as "frodo eyes" mostly a really shiny plugged-in-the-socket blue. My hair color effects my eyes as well. When I'm pink, they're bright blue, when I'm brown or blonde they're grey, Green hair makes them an icy blue/green

Occasionaly I can "trick" my eyes into changing color. Cry for five minutes in the morning and I'll have grey eyes all day. Get lots of sleep and drink a lot of orange juice, bright blue.

I have eyes that change colors, similar to what others here have mentioned, however, one is blue, and they other is grey. In photos, they nearly always show up this incredible blue that my eyes never actually seem to turn to in real life, and, occasionally, they look violetish, but they are always a shade off: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v660/sugarpinkkisses/manyeyecolors.jpg (wallpaper I just made with a sampling of these colors)

But I have something none of you have. I've got a patch of brown in my left eye so nya [Razz]

That's cool. Is it a hereditary thing? One parent's eyes blue, the other's brown? My mother has blonde eyelashes on one eye and brown on the other.

As I mentioned, my mother's eyes are a grey-blue and my dad's are green.

It's a mutation of a regular gene. Alexander the Great had a dark brown one, but the mutation is incredibly rare. Having two different color eyes (again, the flash turns them both that weird blue, so it's hard to photograph) is also incredibly rare. So, having both of these things, I've got some of the rarest eyes in the world [Big Grin]
