Zsa Zsa Gabor died exactly 1 year ago at the age of 99 of cardiac arrest at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center, on December 18, 2016.
Gabor began her stage career in Vienna and was crowned Miss Hungary in 1936. She emigrated from Hungary to the United States in 1941. Becoming a sought-after actress with “European flair and style”, she was considered to have a personality that “exuded charm and grace”. Her first film role was a supporting role in Lovely to Look At. She later acted in We’re Not Married! and played one of her few leading roles in the John Huston-directed film, Moulin Rouge (1952). Huston would later describe her as a “creditable” actress.
Gabor was married nine times. She was divorced seven times, and one marriage was annulled. “All in all — I love being married”, she wrote in her autobiography. “I love the companionship, I love cooking for a man (simple things like chicken soup and my special Dracula’s goulash from Hungary), and spending all my time with a man. Of course I love being in love — but it is marriage that really fulfills me.
