The most beautiful woman in the world, ever..Gorgeous AVA..Breathtakingly gorgeous. Perfection!!

wjerryzwjerryzAug 21, 2016

Ava had so much class. Great fan of hers. Sinatra was the wrong match for her.

ciaraxxsweetyciaraxxsweetyFeb 25, 2016

This woman was a gorgeous wonder. Such class and elegance. I rarely see women (I say it as a woman myself) that are as attractive and beautiful as Ava once was. R.I.P to one of the biggest known sx symbols of our time

Paris098Nov 11, 2013

OMG I love her so much! She's so cute!

Ano7NiemMay 12, 2013

Brenda Shirey: Ava was not murdered. Ava Gardner was a smoker and died of a lung disease combined with an auto-immune ilness. Some say hiv and others say lupus.

LITTLE KOJAKJan 20, 2012

To all those below who stated Frank Sinara was the love of her life, that may not have been true. I had read in one of her bigoraphies that it was rumored Lana Turner was the great love of her life. Wowwww!!!!!!

CarolDec 26, 2011

she dated Porfirio Rubirosa in 1956.

H2OJul 15, 2011

I truly doubt she was with most of these guys. Where's Frank Sinatra, The love of her life?

cruchotMar 4, 2011
