Zsa Zsa Gabor, the gorgeous and alluring Hungarian-American actress, was the epitome of old Hollywood glamour. From her impeccably styled blonde tresses, to her megawatt smile, Gabor dazzled her audience on the big screen, and her sex appeal lured many wealthy men into her bedroom. She made her mark on the entertainment industry with appearances in movies such as Moulin Rouge, but it was her life away from the red carpet that captured everyone’s attention. After passing away at the age of 99 from a heart attack, we’re paying homage to Gabor by sharing ten facts you may not have known about the Hollywood icon.
