BREAKING NEWS: Actress Lauren Bacall dead at age 89 - RIPHollywood icon Lauren Bacall has died. She was 89 years old. A family member revealed to the gossip site TMZ that the actress passed away Tuesday morning from a massive stroke at her home. Bacall is best known for her roles in films like Key Largo, and The Mirror Has to Faces. Bacall's passing was first reported on Twitter by MSNBC presenter Thomas Roberts, who wrote that he got the news from a source connected to the actress' friends and family. In 1945, Bacall wed her one-time co-star Humphry Bogart, and the two remained married until the actor's passing in 1957. Four years later, Bacall tied the knot with Jason Robards, but their marriage fell apart in 1969. Bacall is survived by her three children. Lauren Bacall was born Betty Joan Perske on September 16, 1924, in New York City to Natalie Weinstein-Bacal, a Romanian Jewish immigrant, and William Perske, who was born in New Jersey. Over the course of her successful acting career that spanned six decades, Bacall started in more than 70 films, beginning in 1944 when Howard Hawks cast her in the role of Marie 'Slim 'Browning in To Have and Have Not opposite Humphrey Bogart. The sultry screen siren, whose striking face earned her the nickname The Look, also graced with her presence such films as The big Sleep, Designing Women, How to Marry a Millionaire and Blood Alley. Later in life, Bacall conquered Broadway, winning a pair of Tony awards. In 1996, Bacall's turn as Hannah in The Mirror Has Two Faces earned her an Oscar nod for Best Supporting Actress. Bacall received a Lifetime Achievement Academy Award in 2009 when she was 85 years old. Most recently, the 89-year-old did a lot of voice-over work, including in the cartoon TV show Family Guy and the animated feature Ernest and Celestine.
