Zsa Zsa Gabor, legendary Hollywood actress, dies at 99

Zsa Zsa Gabor, the Hungarian actress died on Sunday after suffering a heart attack, aged 99, in Los Angeles.

Gabor’s self-parodying glamour and revolving-door marriages to millionaires put a luster of American celebrity on a long but only modestly successful career in movies and television.

Born in Hungary, she emigrated to the United States during World War Two and made her Hollywood debut in 1952. Gabor married nine times and was famous for her celebrity lifestyle.


Her husbands included a Turkish diplomat, the hotel heir Conrad Hilton, the actor George Sanders, an industrialist, an oil magnate, a toy designer, a divorce lawyer and a man often referred to in the news media as the Duke of Saxony

She first married at the age of 20 and for the last (and longest) time when she was nearly 70 to the man who outlived her.

US chat show host Larry King said of the star, “There will only be one Zsa Zsa Gabor. And I liked her a lot. Rest In Peace, my dear.”

Game of Thrones actress Gwendoline Christie called the socialite "fabulous" and "unmistakable", making the point with a picture of Gabor posing in a giant confection of a hat.

In her heyday, Gabor embodied Hollywood's platinum blonde ideal and was famous for wearing lame gowns. Gabor was arguably among the first women to be "famous for being famous" - an often attributed to her famous great-granddaughter by marriage, Paris Hilton.
