Actress Zsa Zsa Gabor, famous for having nine husbands during her life, has died at the age of 99. The Hungarian actress and socialite suffered a heart attack and was rushed to hospital where she was pronounced dead.
For the past few years, Ms Gabor, who lived in the plush Beverly Hills area, has been strugglling with a number of health issues. In February this year, she was rushed to hospital suffering from breathing problems. A doctor came to clear mucus from her throat before deciding she should go to hospital for further treatment. Medics diagnosed her with having an infection which related to a feeding tube and she needed minor surgery. She had also spent time in hospital as a result of a throat infection in 2012.
However, a year later, she had a much more serious infection and her right leg had to be amputated above the knee. Ms Gabor, who was Hollywood royalty, was married to her ninth husband Frederic Prinz Von Anhalt. She had not been seen in public for a number of years. She became a famous sex symbol in the Fifties and is renowned for her witty comments, which are still quoted today.
She once said: “I am a marvelous housekeeper. Every time I leave a man, I keep his house.” Ms Gabor began her career on stage in Vienna and was crowned Miss Hungary in 1936. She went on to emigrate to America in the Forties. She gained her first film role in Lovely to Look At before going on to star in We’re Not Married! and then one of her best known roles in Moulin Rouge.
However, she became just as known for her personal life as her film career, having been married nine times. She once said: “Men have always liked me and I have always liked men.”
