Adieu Zsa Zsa Gabor!
“The only way to learn a language properly, in fact, is to marry a man of that nationality. You get what they call in Europe a 'sleeping dictionary.' Of course, I have only been married five times, and I speak seven languages. I'm still trying to remember where I picked up the other two.”
Farewell from the woman who invented the art of being famous simply for the sake of being famous.
Her legendary elegance, her grace , her sophisticated style, her sense of humour and self-irony makes her an eternal figure and her memory will linger on. The Hungarian actress and socialite Zsa Zsa Gabor (February 6, 1917 –December 18, 2016 – born Sári Gábor) passed away just 50 days before her 100th birthday . Zsa Zsa was born in Budapest. Both of her parents had Jewish origins. Zsa Zsa began her stage career in 1936 when she was crowned Miss Hungary in Vienna. At the age of 24 she immigrated to the United States. Her first film debut was a supporting role in Lovely to Look At. Before long, she became a favourite of the American gossip coloumnists due to her extravagant Holywood lifestyle, her glamorous personality and her string of marriages together; she became a true celebrity along with her two other sisters ( both actresses / socialites – Magda and Eva ). Zsa Zsa married 9 times. Her first husband was a Turkish diplomat. It was during this time when she started her controversial private life with her alleged love affair with Kemal Atatürk, the founder of modern Turkey. Once she said: “I am a marvelous housekeeper. Every time I leave a man I keep his house.” Good-bye Zsa Zsa!
