Publicist Jamie Cadwell said Tuesday that the 79-year-old actress remains hospitalized after she was admitted to Cedars-Sinai in early February. Cadwell did not elaborate about Taylor's current condition or prognosis.

Taylor announced her congestive heart failure diagnosis in 2004.

The actress has received friends in her hospital room, where she also watched the Academy Awards to celebrate her birthday last month. She won Oscars for her performances in "BUtterfield 8" and "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?"
