Zsa Zsa Gábor passed away at the age of 99
Sad news for Monday morning. It turned out that the famous actress of Hungarian origin, Zsa Zsa Gábor died.
444.hu writes that Frederic von Anhalt, the ninth and last husband of the actress, announced the news that Zsa Zsa Gábor had a heart attack, through which she died. But she was not alone, her family was with her.
She was (one of) the most famous person(s) of the 20th century, a true icon, who was famous for being famous. She was married nine times, including to the hotel magnate Conrad Hilton, whose great-granddaughter, Paris Hilton also became a celebrity.
Born as Zsazsa Sára Gábor in Budapest, in 1917, and raised up in the US, after her parents fled the country during World War II. It was 1952 that brought her the first major Hollywood role which was followed by others. Even though she was an actress, she was mainly known for her extravagant lifestyle, lots of marriages and self-ironic humour.
Some of her most memorable lines, as compiled by the Daily Telegraph, include:
I’m a marvellous housekeeper. Every time I leave a man, I keep his house.
I never hated a man enough to give him his diamonds back.
One of my theories is that men love with their eyes; women love with their ears.
I don’t remember anybody’s name. How do you think the ‘dahling’ thing got started?
The always restless actress found Anhalt, her true love at the age of 70, and ever since that they lived together. However, a car accident in 2002 caused her to be partially paralysed, she suffered strokes in 2005 and 2007, and her right leg got amputated in 2011 due to an infection, which all led her to spend the last 14 years of her life in their house with limited capabilities.
