Lauren Bacall, the movie star known for her sultry allure on the silver screen, died on Tuesday at the age of 89. Bacall was famously married to Hollywood legend Humphrey Bogart from 1945 until his death in 1957. On Tuesday, the Humphrey Bogart Estate issued an official statement on Bacall’s death.
“With deep sorrow for the magnitude of our loss, yet with great gratitude for her amazing life, we confirm the passing of Lauren Bacall,” the Facebook post read. The news received over 10,000 shares within an hour of being posted.
Bacall had a lucrative acting career, but her only Oscar nomination came in 1997 for “The Mirror Has Two Places.” She eventually took home an honorary Oscar after receiving a Life Achievement Award from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences in 2010.
She was best known for her roles in “The Big Sleep,” “Key Largo,” “To Have and Have Not,” “How to Marry A Millionaire” and 2003’s “Dogville.” She continued to work through this year, when she voiced the character Evelyn during a recent episode of Fox’s hit animated show “Family Guy.”
Bacall was an iconic beauty and was named one of People magazine's "50 Most Beautiful” at age 72. "Lauren's special beauty is the reflection of her elegance, her intelligence and her invigorating will," said Barbra Streisand, who worked with the actress in “The Mirror Has Two Faces,” according to People.com.
