Actress Lauren Bacall, who featured in films like "To Have and Have Not" and "Key Largo," has died, her former husband Humphrey Bogart's estate said. She was 89.


Bacall died Tuesday at her home here after suffering a stroke, reports huffingtonpost.com.

"With deep sorrow, yet with great gratitude for her amazing life, we confirm the passing of Lauren Bacall," the Bogart Estate Twitter handle said.

Bacall and Bogart met while filming 1944 movie "To Have And Have Not". The couple married in 1945, had two children, and remained together until Bogart's death in 1957.

Bacall stopped acting for almost 20 years after his death.

She later married actor Jason Robards Jr., with whom she had another child. Robards died in 2000.

Born Betty Joan Perske on Sep 16, 1924, the actress had 72 film credits to her name. She began taking modeling and acting classes as a teen, and landed several roles in theatre.

Bacall received her only Academy Award nomination for her supporting role in the 1996 film "The Mirror Has Two Faces," where she played Barbara Streisand's mother.

Bacall wrote two memoirs, including "Lauren Bacall: By Myself", which won a National Book Award in 1980.
