Her beauty and flamboyant personality propelled her to international fame and icon status, in movies like Woman Without a Soul and La Generala . She died in Mexico City of congestive heart failure at age 88.
Upon being asked her age by a female journalist:
- Mire, señorita, yo he estado muy ocupada viviendo mi vida y no he tenido tiempo de contarla. ("Look, young lady, I have been very busy living my life and I've not had time to count it.")
