Legendary celebrity and actress Zsa Zsa Gabor, a Hungarian beauty known for her glamorous persona, has died.

She was 99-years-old, and was two months away from celebrating her 100th birthday. She was born February 6, 1917 in Budapest, Hungary.

According to TMZ, Gabor died after suffering from a heart attack and being rushed to a hospital. TMZ described Gabor as the Kim Kardashian of her era. Daily Variety said Gabor’s 60-year career “paved the way for today’s celebrity-obsessed culture.” She was known for her glamour and playing herself, Daily Variety said.

Gabor was too sick to venture out of her bedroom for her own birthday parties, TMZ said.
The Hollywood Reporter said that Gabor – who, along with her sister, Eva, made up the Gabor Sisters – was more known for being a celebrity than her acting credits. Eva Gabor died in 1995.
