Swimwear icon Esther Williams has died at the age of 91 in her Los Angeles home.
An MGM star during Hollywood’s Golden Age, Williams began her career as a successful competitive swimmer before transitioning into film. Most of her movies had an aquatic theme, including Neptune’s Daughter, The Million Dollar Mermaid, and Bathing Beauty, and featured Williams wearing beautiful swimsuits. Later in life, Williams also launched her own swimwear collection, which is still available for purchase online.
After retiring from acting in the 1960s, Williams remained active. In the 80s, she released a series of instructional videos titled Swim, Baby, Swim, which helped parents teach their children to swim. For the 1984 Summer Olympics, she acted as a commentator for synchronized swimming events.
Williams was married four times, and is survived by a son and daughter.
