Hungarian-American actress Zsa Zsa Gabor died Sunday in Los Angeles at the age of 99 from a heart failure, her longtime publicist Edward Lozzi said. Gabor maintained the air of an aristocrat and was better known for her celebrity lifestyle.

Born Sari Gabor in Budapest on Feb. 6, 1917, Gabor was nicknamed Zsa Zsa by her family. She appeared in more than 60 television movies and feature films, mostly American-made. Her cinema debut came in 1952, in the MGM musical "Lovely To Look At."

Here are 10 facts about Gabor:

  • Gabor had two sisters, Eva and Magda, who also moved to Hollywood.
  • Gabor also starred in low-budget films such as "Queen of Outer Space" and "Picture Mommy Dead."
  • She also played a villainess in the final episode of the 1960s television series "Batman." Her character used hair dryers to steal information from men's brains.
  • Gabor said that she calls everyone "dah-ling" because she has trouble remembering names.
  • Gabor was divorced seven times, and one marriage was annulled.
  • Gabor's nine husbands were Turkish diplomat Burhan Belge; American hotelier Conrad Hilton; actor George Sanders; New York businessman Herbert Hutner; Oil magnate Joshua Cosden; Barbie doll designer Jack Ryan; her divorce lawyer Michael O'Hara; Mexican attorney Felipe de Alba; and German-American entrepreneur Frederic Prinz von Anhalt.
  • Gabor wrote several books including "How to Catch a Man, How to Keep a Man, How to Get Rid of a Man," "Zsa Zsa Gabor's Complete Guide to Men" and "One Lifetime Is Not Enough."
  • While talking about her attitude toward marriage, Gabor once said: "Getting divorced just because you don't love a man is almost as silly as getting married just because you do."
  • In 1974, she bought a villa in Bel Air built by Howard Hughes and formerly owned by Elvis Presley.
  • In 1989, Gabor had an argument with a Los Angeles policeman for which she was convicted of assault. She was sentenced to three days imprisonment, but in a comfortable penthouse room.
