Actress Lauren Bacall has died at the age of 89, according to a report by TMZ and the Twitter account of the Humphrey Bogart Estate.

Bacall was born and raised in the Bronx.

In a 2005 interview on "Larry King Live," Bacall recalled getting her start on Broadway in a show called "Johnny Two by Four" on the subway circuit, which went to Manhattan, Brooklyn and the Bronx.

Bacall became famous during the "Golden Age of Hollywood," especially known for her husky voice and looks.

She starred alongside Humphrey Bogart in several films, including "The Big Sleep," "To Have and To Have Not" and "Key Largo." She was married to Bogart from 1945 until he died in 1957.

She earned her only Oscar nomination for her work in the 1996 film "The Mirror Has Two Faces."

Bacall also appeared on stage, winning Tonys for "Applause" and "Woman of the Year." ClientIP:, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
