The publicist of Zsa Zsa Gabor says the socialite and actress has died at the age of 99.
The Hungarian born actress is alleged to have died from a heart attack. She was rushed to hospital and pronounced dead.
Gabor began her stage career in Vienna and was crowned Miss Hungary in 1936. She emigrated to the United States in 1941 and became a sought-after actress with “European flair and style,” with a personality that “exuded charm and grace.”
Her first film role was a supporting role in Lovely to Look At. She later acted in We’re Not Married! and played one of her few leading roles in Moulin Rouge (1952), directed by John Huston, who described her as a “creditable” actress. Outside of her acting career, Gabor was best known for having nine husbands, including hotel magnate Conrad Hilton and actor George Sanders.
She once stated, “Men have always liked me and I have always liked men. But I like a mannish man, a man who knows how to talk to and treat a woman – not just a man with muscles.”
