LOS ANGELES – Zsa Zsa Gabor, the Hungarian beauty queen turned actress, has died, Variety confirmed Sunday. She was 99.
Gabor died in her Bel Air mansion, her publicist confirmed to the entertainment publication.
Gabor was born Sari Gabor on Feb. 6, 1917, in Budapest, Hungary.
The beauty queen turned actress, the middle child of the celebrated Gabor sisters, was most famous for her nine marriages, one of which to Felipe De Alba in 1982 was declared invalid after only one day.
Among her husbands were hotel millionaire Conrad Hilton; Oscar-winning actor George Sanders; and her most recent, Prince Frederick Von Anhalt, Duke of Saxony.
Her more prominent films include John Huston’s 1952 Toulouse-Lautrec biopic, “Moulin Rouge;” “The Story of Three Loves,” 1953; “The Girl in the Kremlin,” 1957; and Orson Welles’ classic “Touch of Evil,” 1958.
In 1989, Gabor was sentenced to 72 hours in jail for slapping a Beverly Hills police officer after a traffic stop. She also had to perform community service at a battered women’s shelter.
The other Gabor sisters were Magda — the oldest — who died in 1997, five days before her 83rd birthday, and Eva — the youngest — who died in 1995 at 76.
Magda, an occasional stage actress, also was married to Sanders at one time.
Eva is probably best remembered for her role as a socialite turned farmer’s wife on the 1960s’ TV sitcom “Green Acres.”
