Legendary Hollywood actress and former Miss Hungary, Zsa Zsa Gabor, has died a few months shy of her 100th birthday. Gabor died in her Bel Air mansion on Sunday (18 December), where she had been on life support for five years.

TMZ broke the news that Gabor had died from a heart attack. It said she had been rushed to hospital where she was pronounced dead. Gabor was a renowned socialite with a long film career, although she was mostly known for her larger than life character.

Gabor was born in Budapest on 6 February 1917. In 1936, she was crowned Miss Hungary and then followed her sister, Eva, to Hollywood.

She got one of her biggest breaks in the 1952 film, the Moulin Rouge. It was the start of a long career in film, TV and theatre and she was known for keeping her eastern European roots not to mention accent - she is often noted to have called everyone "darling" but pronouncing it "dah-link".

She was also famous for her nine marriages, seven of which ended in divorce - including one to Conrad Hilton, the great-grandfather of celebrity socialite, Paris Hilton.

Gabor's final marriage to Frédéric Prinz von Anhalt in 1986 lasted until her death.
