She is her own personal brand and every actress (and even actors) in the world want to be like her. Her name is often uttered in theater classes and acting workshops.

And it was because of her that many aspiring actors and actresses are now choosing the same career path.
Be it going through reality television or social media, Zsa Zsa Gabor made it possible for many to become stars. Known for her classic works such as John Huston's "Moulin Rouge" in 1952 and Orson Welles's "Touch of Evil" in 1958. She spent most of her time as a star and a constant guest in talk shows.
