Hollywood Legend Lauren Bacall Has Died

Legendary actress Lauren Bacall, one of Hollywood's classic screen sirens, died today after suffering a "massive stroke." She was 89.

TMZ reports she suffered a fatal stroke on Tuesday morning and died at home in her apartment in the famous Dakota building in New York.

Bacall brought a sultry, film noire sensibility to classic films like How to Marry a Millionaire, Key Largo, and the Big Sleep, which she starred in with her then-husband Humphrey Bogart.

Bacall's signature "look"—smoldering eyes and an arched eyebrow—was wrought with confidence but was apparently born from nerves.

According to TCM, the actress developed the iconic look "out of necessity" because she was shaking from nerves during her first screen test.

The Hollywood legend met her husband-to-be at age 19 when the pair faced off with crackling chemistry in the 1944 film, To Have and To Have Not.

After Bogart's death in 1957, Bacall later remarried Oscar winner Jason Robards. The pair divorced in 1969.

In 2009, Bacall was awarded an honorary Academy Award.

She leaves behind three children.
