    Actress Lauren Bacall died early Tuesday at age 89 of a stroke, according to the Humphrey Bogart Estate. “With deep sorrow, yet with great gratitude for her amazing life, we confirm the passing of Lauren Bacall,” the Bogart Estate said in a statement. Bacall was signed by Warner Bros. in 1943 and went on to become a scene-stealing star in movies alongside the likes of Marilyn Monroe, Rock Hudson, and Bogart, whom she later married. In 2010, Bacall received a lifetime achievement award from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences.
