RIP Zsa Zsa Gabor

Hollywood goddess Zsa Zsa Gabor, arguably more famous for her private life than any of her film roles, has passed away at the age of 99 - although that age is, I believe, a guesstimate given how closely she guarded such details.

The starlet was married an incredible nine times. Her final husband, the 73 year old Frederic von Anhalt, whom she had been married to for the last thirty years, announcing her death from a heart attack at her LA home yesterday.

Gabor was born in Budapest and acted on stage in Vienna before emigrating to the US in 1941. She scored her film debut eleven years later in John Houston's Moulin Rogue. She carved a career for herself in a string of B movies throughout the 1950s, but arguably her finest performance was simply that of herself and her extravagent, tempestuous lifestyle. She was catnip to the media and gossip papers of Hollywood and, largely maintained her profile from the '70s onwards with a string of personal appearances and cameos.
