Martha Hyer, an Oscar-nominated actress who starred alongside the likes of Frank Sinatra and Humphrey Bogart, had died.

Raymond Lucero of Rivera Funeral Home says Hyer died May 31 in Santa Fe, New Mexico. She was 89.

Born in Texas, the easygoing blonde began her movie career with a small role in the 1946 movie “The Locket” but got her big break in the 1954 comedy “Sabrina,” starring Bogart and Audrey Hepburn.

As a star of the 1950s, she once turned down a date request from a young Sen John F Kennedy.

She was nominated for an Academy Award as best supporting actress for her role in 1958’s “Some Came Running,” starring Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Shirley MacLaine.
