LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Actress and Hollywood celebrity Zsa Zsa Gabor returned to hospital on Tuesday after she began coughing up blood in the early morning.

Her spokesman John Blanchette said doctors were treating her for a lung infection, and she is in critical condition.

The star of 1950s films "Moulin Rouge" and "Lili" was in the hospital last month to have her leg amputated because of a gangrene infection. She had hip replacement surgery in July.

Gabor, 93, began spitting up blood in the morning, and her husband, Frederic Prinz von Anhalt, called for an ambulance to take her to Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles, said Blanchette, a spokesman for Gabor.

The actress, who has been a fixture on Hollywood's social scene for decades, is due to turn 94 on Sunday.
