Celebrities pay tribute to Hollywood icon Zsa Zsa Gabor, who has died aged 99

Celebrities have remembered Hollywood actress and socialite Zsa Zsa Gabor who has died aged 99, her husband said.

Prince Frederic von Anhalt said she died on Sunday after suffering a heart attack in their home in Bel-Air, Los Angeles.

She was credited with creating a new kind of fame based on flaunting wealth and possessing a jaded wisdom on glamour.

The Hungarian-born star was better known for her string of marriages, totalling nine if a quickly annulled shipboard ceremony is included, than her work on-screen.

She was also known for her wit and one-liners, having once said: “I am a marvellous housekeeper. Every time I leave a man I keep his house.”

Celebrities have paid tribute to her on Twitter: 

American Burlesque dancer Dita Von Teese shared a picture on Instagram, writing: “Another Hollywood legend has left us, the glamorous Zsa Zsa Gabor, one of the wittiest beauties of all time!

“I love all her hilarious quotes about love, but this one is a favorite: “Being jealous of a beautiful woman is not going to make you more beautiful.”#zsazsagabor #glamourgirlforever”

Zsa Zsa was also the great aunt of Hollywood socialite and reality TV star Paris Hilton.
