Eva Gabor would bring sandwiches to the set of Green Acres to feed Eddie Albert

Gabor brought cold beef, chicken or pastrami sandwiches for her television husband.

Eva Gabor was known for being one of the most glamorous women in Hollywood. She was a style icon that caught the attention of everyone in the room. Gabor inspired many actresses and even started a wig business to help women feel more confident about themselves.

Beyond the looks and effortless use of "darling," the actress had a full heart, showing love and support to others while acting as a mother to her television husband, Eddie Albert. Gabor portrayed Lisa Douglas on Green Acres, the wife of Oliver Wendell Douglas, who had to create a new life in a rural area after living a life of luxury in the city.

In a joint interview with her sister Zsa Zsa Gabor, Eva revealed that she would bring a variety of sandwiches for Albert to eat on the set of Green Acres. The interview with Fort Lauderdale News in 1966 stated Eva, "babies Eddie Albert (her TV husband) like a mother, brings him cold beef, chicken or pastrami sandwiches (most of which she eats herself), and in general clucks over the whole Green Acres cast like a mother hen."

Gabor treated everyone with respect, no matter what status they held. According to the article, she even sold her home in Hollywood to a woman with cancer who only had a short time to live.

At the time, Gabor wasn't aware of the buyer's health, but when she found out, the actress made it her mission to help somehow.

She lowered the price of her home and added some of her rare antique furniture. Her agents were against the decision and even told her that she was a bad businesswoman. Yet, for Gabor, everything wasn't about business and making money.

She said, "It makes me feel good. Maybe it'll make her feel good too."

Eva Gabor was selfless, and she touched the hearts of many worldwide.

The kraft services back in the 60’s could of been something like cigarettes, coffee and pastries. Eva was so nice to bring sandwiches.

What no Hotscakes, or Fried Oatmeal, or Toast from the Oven. I'm sure there are plenty of others from a Master Chef Like Eva (Lisa). LOL.😄😄

That’s the reason Oliver could cry so easily. I’m sure those hotscakes aren’t easy to digest
