Hollywood legend Zsa Zsa Gabor passed away Sunday in her Bel Air home, Variety (opens in new tab) reports. She was 99. Her publicist, Ed Lozzi, confirmed that the actress, who had been on life support for the last five years, died of a heart attack.

Over the course of her 60-year career, Gabor was known as an actress and also as a pop culture icon. She was best known for her roles in films like Moulin Rogue and Lili. Her sisters, Eva and Madga, passed away in 1995 and 1997, respectively.

In recent years, Gabor's health had deteriorated. A 2002 car accident left her in a wheelchair and she suffered a stroke in 2005. She broke her hip in July 2010 after falling in her Bel Air home and her leg was eventually amputated above the knee, according to Variety. Still, Gabor was a fighter and hung on.

She is survived by her husband and will be truly missed.
