New York, N.Y. (USA TODAY) -- Legendary film star Lauren Bacall has died, according to reports from Variety and The Hollywood Reporter. She was 89.

Both outlets are reporting she died of a suspected stroke Tuesday morning at her New York home.

Known for her husky voice and sizzling looks, Bacall started out as a model and then broke out as a leading lady opposite Humphrey Bogart in her first film, 1944's "To Have and To Have Not."

The two had a whirlwind romance and wed the following year, and a son and daughter soon followed -- as did more on-screen pairings: The Big Sleep (1946), Dark Passage (1947), and Key Largo (1948). They remained married until Bogart's death in 1957.

Bacall's other notable films include 1950's Young Man With a Horn and 1953's How To Marry A Millionaire, in which she starred alongside Betty Grable and Marilyn Monroe.

She also experienced success on stage, starring on Broadway in Goodbye, Charlie (1959) and Cactus Flower (1965), and won Tony Awards for her performances in Applause (1970) and Woman of the Year (1981).

In 1997, the same year she received the Kennedy Center Honors, Bacall was nominated for a best supporting actress Academy Award for her role in The Mirror Has Two Faces opposite Barbra Streisand. She did not win, but was awarded an Honorary Academy Award in 2010.
