NEW YORK (CBS News) – Known for her husky voice and sultry looks, Lauren Bacall, the model-turned-actress who starred with husband Humphrey Bogart in classic movies such as “Key Largo” and “To Have and Have Not,” has died at age 89.

Her son told CBS News that she died Tuesday morning. The Humphrey Bogart estate also confirmed the death.

Born Betty Joan Perske in New York City, she was the daughter of Jewish immigrants and first cousin to Israeli statesman Shimon Peres. As a teenager she became a model and caught the eye of director Howard Hawks. He changed her first name to Lauren; she took her mother’s maiden name of Bacal, adding an L — and her career took off.

Her film debut, in 1944’s “To Have and Have Not,” immediately made her one of Hollywood’s leading ladies.
