Legendary actress Elizabeth Taylor is set to have surgery to repair a leaky valve in her heart. Taylor, 77, took to her Twitter page on Tuesday to break the news herself.

"Dear Friends, I would like to let you know before it gets in the papers that I am going into the hospital to have a procedure on my heart. It's very new and involves repairing my leaky valve using a clip device, without open heart surgery, so that my heart will function," she wrote. "Any prayers you happen to have lying around I would dearly appreciate. I'll let you know when it's all over. Love you, Elizabeth."
