Actress Zsa Zsa Gabor experienced a successful career that spanned over six decades, but as she has gotten older, health issues have kept her away from acting.
On Saturday (Feb. 6), Gabor celebrated her 99th birthday, but the celebration has been forgotten after news broke that she was rushed to the hospital on Monday (Feb. 8).
According to TMZ, Gabor was having trouble breathing, prompting a doctor to stop by for a home visit. People reports that Gabor was then admitted to the hospital and it was determined her difficulties were caused by a feeding tube related lung infection.
This most recent incident is one of many health issues Gabor has experienced over the years. Following a car accident in 2002, Gabor was left partially paralyzed and confined to a wheelchair. She then suffered and survived two strokes, one in 2005 and one in 2006. In addition, due to an infection in her right leg, Gabor had to have it amputated in 2011.
The past few years have been tough for Gabor, but before all of her health problems, she was one of the most sought-after actresses in the world. She is perhaps best known for her role as Jane Avril in the 1952 film Moulin Rouge, and has dozens of other film and television credits to her name.
Gabor’s connection to the country music community mainly stems from her appearance in the 1958 musical film called Country Music Holiday, which also starred June Carter Cash. Besides Country Music Holiday, some of Gabor’s other country-related credits include her appearance in an episode of Bonanza in 1967 as the character Madame Marova and a cameo appearance as herself in the 1993 Beverly Hillbillies feature film.
You can tune in to the video below to watch a scene from Country Music Holiday. Although Gabor is not in this particular scene, it’s still a fun one to watch!
After everything she’s been through, we hate to hear that Gabor isn’t feeling well at the moment. We’ll be praying for her quick and complete recovery.
