Zsa Zsa Gabor (born February 6, 1917)[1] is a Hungarian-American actress and socialite and was awarded Miss Hungary in 1936. She emigrated to the United States in 1941. Car designer George Barris[who?] describes her as having been a highly sought-after actress with "European flair and style", with a personality that "exuded charm and grace".[2]

Her first movie role was as supporting actress in Lovely to Look At starring Red Skelton. She later acted in We're Not Married with Ginger Rogers and Marilyn Monroe. Her first starring role was in Moulin Rouge (1952), directed by John Huston. Besides her film and television appearances, she is best-known for having nine husbands, including hotel magnate Conrad Hilton and actor George Sanders. She once stated "Men have always liked me and I have always liked men. But I like a mannish man, a man who knows how to talk to and treat a woman—not just a man with muscles."[3]

Biography

Born as Sári Gábor in Budapest (then part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire), the middle of the three daughters of Vilmos Gábor (1884–1962), a soldier, and Jolie Gábor (1896–1997),[4] her elder sister Magda was a socialite and her younger sister Eva was an actress and businesswoman. The family was of at least partial Jewish descent; their mother, Jolie (née Tillemann Jánosné), was a cousin of Annette Tilleman Lantos, the wife (now widow) of Hungarian-born American California congressman, Holocaust survivor Tom Lantos.[5][6] Gabor's maternal grandparents died in the Holocaust, and biographers speculate that her paternal family were originally Jewish as well, but converted to Roman Catholicism in order to assimilate.[7]
