The husky-voiced Hollywood icon Lauren Bacall died on Tuesday at the age of 89, according to a statement from Bogart’s estate. She reportedly died after suffering a major stroke at home in New York.
Following her remarkable debut aged 19 opposite her future husband, Hollywood legend Humphrey Bogart, Bacall’s career spanned for seven decades and her most memorable movies include The Big Sleep, To Have and Have Not and The Mirror Has Two Faces.
After meeting Humphrey Bogart on the set of To Have and Have Not, Bacall married him in 1945, and they had two children, Stephen Humphrey Bogart and Leslie Bogart, before he died in 1957. She later married Jason Robards and gave birth to her third child, Sam.

Barbra Streisand who starred with Bacall in The Mirror Has Two Faces released a statement regarding Bacall’s death:
“What a terrible loss for us all. First Robin [Williams], who was a genius, and now Lauren. It was my privilege to have known her, to have acted with her. And, most of all, to have had her as a wise and loving friend.”
