London (ANI): Zsa Zsa Gabor's husband Frederick Prinz von Anhalt has announced that he wants to plastinate his wife's body when she dies to preserve her beauty. He then wants to put her plastinated on show. The 93-year-old actress has been in and out of hospital for the past few weeks and is said to be in very ill health.
“My wife has always dreamt that her beauty would be immortal," the Daily Mail quoted him as saying. “I would like to show the plastinated body of Zsa Zsa Gabor in the context of a scene in one of her films." He added that he would like German anatomist Gunther von Hagens to perform the procedure on his wife.
He made his decision after von Hagen's exhibitions showed plastinated bodies with just muscles and tendons still intact. The former beauty queen was renowned for her looks and glamour and was one of the original Hollywood socialites. Frederic and Zsa Zsa celebrated their 24th wedding anniversary last month, this being Gabor's ninth marriage.
