“I want a man who’s kind and understanding. Is that too much to ask of a millionaire?” (Zsa Zsa Gabor, 1950’s)
Sári Gábor (born February 6, 1917), also known as Zsa Zsa Gabor, is a Hungarian-born American actress, who acted in supporting roles in movies, on Broadway, and occasionally on television. Gabor was also a very active socialite at one time.
She began her stage career in Vienna, Austria, at the age of 15, and was crowned Miss Hungary in 1936. She emigrated to the United States in 1941 and became a sought-after actress with “European flair and style”, a personality that “exuded charm and grace”. Her first movie role was as supporting actress in Lovely to Look At. She later acted in We’re Not Married! and played one of her few leading roles in Moulin Rouge (1952), directed by John Huston, who described Gabor as a “creditable” actress.
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.” Some other famous comical quotes of hers include “I am a marvelous housekeeper. Every time I leave a man I keep his house” and “I never hated a man enough to give him diamonds back” – priceless!
Zsa Zsa Gabor has been called “glamour personified” by famed television host, Merv Griffin, and this is absolutely true! Her “fabulous” choice of eyewear is absolutely no exception to her highly-celebrated taste in fashion …
