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.
