On Sunday, a priest administered last rites for Gabor, 93.

Her husband, Frederic Prinz von Anhalt, told from the actress’ bedside: “She is unconscious but she is a fighter.”

Gabor had been talking through Saturday — the couple’s 20th wedding anniversary — but condition worsened suddenly on Sunday morning.

The movie icon had developed two blood clots and opted for surgery to correct the complication.

Since her health has deteriorated, Gabor has received calls from all around the world, including from the world's richest man, oil-rich ruler Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah.

“She has been getting calls from all over the world — even the Sultan of Brunei rang,” Blanchette told

Gabor, a Hollywood legend, emigrated from Hungary with her two sisters, Eva and Magda, who also were actresses.

Eva died in 1995, and Magda in 1997.
