One of Hollywood's leading ladies, actress Lauren Bacall has died aged 89.

There are reports she died of a stroke in her family home.

Bacall's death was confirmed by the Bogart estate, French news agency AFP reported.

"With deep sorrow, yet with great gratitude for her amazing life, we confirm the passing of Lauren Bacall," the estate said on Twitter.

Bacall made her screen debut in 'To Have and Have Not' in which she played the love interest of real-life future husband Humphrey Bogart.

She went on to become one of the most successful screen sirens of the 1940s and 1950s in movies like 'The Big Sleep' and 'How to Marry a Millionaire'.

She was nominated for several Tony Awards for her work in theatre and was nominated for an Academy award for 'The Mirror has Two Faces.'

In 2009, the Academy honoured Bacall for her life's work in film.

Bacall was married to another screen legend, Humphrey Bogart, in 1945, in one of Hollywood's great love stories. Bogart died in 1957.

"He gave me a life and changed my life," she said in 2009.

She was also married to actor Jason Robards from 1961 to 1969. She had three children.
