Tributes pour in for Zsa Zsa Gabor
Tributes have poured in for Zsa Zsa Gabor, who has died at the age of 99.
The ‘Girl in the Kremlin’ star was surrounded by loved ones when she passed away on Sunday (12.18.16) after suffering a heart attack.
Her husband Prince Frederic Von Anhalt said: "Everybody was there. She didn’t die alone," and a number of stars took to social media to pay tribute to the late star.
Miley Cyrus tweeted: "Zsa Zsa!!!!! What a LONG & beautiful life! I have been beyond inspired by your style & grace! We LOVE & MISS YOU! #99 (sic)," while ‘I Dream of Jeannie’ star Barbara Eden added: "Rest in peace Zsa Zsa Gabor. She and her sisters were lovely ladies who were always fun and delightful to be around. -B (sic)."
Antonio Banderas added a picture of Zsa Zsa to his Instagram account and wrote: "RIP", while Dita von Teese wrote: "Another Hollywood legend has left us, the glamorous Zsa Zsa Gabor, one of the wittiest beauties of all time! I love all her hilarious quotes about love, but this one is a favorite: "Being jealous of a beautiful woman is not going to make you more beautiful." #zsazsagabor #glamourgirlforever (sic)."
Andy Cohen tweeted: "#ZsaZsa #RIP" and added a number of crying emojis, Piers Morgan wrote: "RIP Zsa Zsa Gabor. 99 years old, 9 husbands, Miss Hungary & Hollywood star. What a life!," and ‘Game of Thrones’ actress Gwendoline Christie tweeted a video of Zsa Zsa and wrote: "Goodbye Zsa Zsa".
Throughout her longstanding career, the Hungarian-American actress – whose film credits include ‘Queen of Outer Space’, ‘Touch of Evil’ and ‘Death of a Scoundrel’ – was best known for her celebrity lifestyle and is thought to be the first celebrity who was famous for being famous.
Gabor had a string of health problems in her final years. In 2002, she was involved in a car crash in Sunset Boulevard, Los Angeles, where she was left partially paralyzed and confined to a wheelchair.
In 2005 and again in 2007, she suffered strokes whilst in 2010, she had hip replacement surgery after she fractured the joint, meaning she was in and out of hospital.
A year later, Gabor had to have her right leg amputated in life-saving surgery after it was infected with gangrene from what is believed to have started from a massive blood clot.
Earlier this year, just days after her 99th birthday, Gabor was rushed to hospital with breathing difficulties. She was later diagnosed with a feeding tube-related lung infection.
Her husband held birthday parties for the star each year for the last few years despite Gabor being unable to leave her bedroom.
Gabor – who is survived by her husband – outlived her only daughter Francesca Gabor Hilton, who sadly passed away in January 2015 at the age of 67 after suffering a huge stroke. She also outlived her sisters Eva and Magda, who died in 1995 and 1997 respectively.
