Zsa Zsa Gabor is known for different reasons by different people. However, the Hungarian-born actress and socialite is more widely known as a serial bride and a big fan of jewelries. Zsa Zsa Gabor net worth made her lavish lifestyle possible.
Who was Zsa Zsa Gabor?
Zsa Zsa Gabor appeared in over 70 films but her popularity came from elsewhere. For the most part, Gabor was famous for being rich and famous. Although she emigrated to United States and lived in Los Angeles for half a century, she never lost her distinctive accent and Hungarian aristocrat-like living.
She was born on February 6, 1917 in Budapest. She was named Sari Gabor but her family immediately nicknamed her Zsa Zsa. The famous socialite initially wanted to be a veterinary surgeon. However, her beauty and mother propelled her in a different career.
Zsa Zsa Gabor was married nine times throughout her lifetime. The first was with Turkish intellectual Burhan Asaf Belge in 1937. The marriage ended in 1941. According to New York Times, she married hotel heir Conrad Hilton, actor George Sanders, an industrialist, an oil magnate, a toy designer, a Mexican actor, a divorce lawyer and the Duke of Saxony after.
Her mother apparently told her once that she does not have to marry every man she sleeps with. Gabor, known for her witty and memorable quotes, said that it was because she “never stopped being a Catholic.” Although she married many times, her former husbands have nothing bad to say against her.
In fact, actor George Sanders said that the socialite was often misunderstood and that her character was pure. He further said, “She doesn’t disguise her love of amorous entanglements or jewels or whatever else catches her fancy.” It really seemed like the marriages did not end up badly as Gabor once said that she never hated a man enough to return his diamond back.
How much was Zsa Zsa Gabor net worth before her death?
According to The Richest, Zsa Zsa Gabor net worth is estimated at $40 million. Her professional income came from films, television appearances and plays. Her 60-year-career added to her mountain of inherited wealth. She was already a socialite even before her Hollywood career. Zsa Zsa Gabor was a daughter of a wealthy jewellery heiress.
