Goodbye Zsa Zsa Gabor! Here Are 30 Beautiful Black and White Photos of the Hollywood Star With Jewish Roots and 9 Hubbies from the 1950s

I never hated a man enough to give him his diamonds back.” - Zsa Zsa Gabor.
Zsa Zsa Gabor may have been best known for her 9 ex-husbands and some attendant legal and other drama. But the Hungarian-born actress, whose parents were Jewish, was also one of the most gorgeous Hollywood starlets of her day.

She was not only famous for being famous: she was the prototype, the original model. Zsa Zsa Gabor possessed beauty, certainly, and enough Hungarian-accented wit to earn countless talk-show bookings.

She was an actress, after a fashion, in some two dozen movies, and a legendary serial bride who believed that “you never really know a man until you have divorced him.” She could display the arrogance of privilege—in one instance, slapping a police officer during a traffic stop—and also, despite her obvious sexual experience, the wide-eyed guilelessness of a naïf. She was, above all, a personality. She made a career of being herself, even if that self was a construct.

On Sunday afternoon (December 18, 2016), Gabor succumbed to heart failure at the age of 99. Here's a gallery of 30 stunning black and white photos to remember her.
