Olivia de Havilland, 1939’s ‘Gone With The Wind’ Only Surviving Star, Turns 101 On Saturday, July 1

Beautiful Olivia de Havilland  turns 101 tomorrow.  The two-time Oscar winner was one of the biggest stars of Hollywood’s Golden Age and has appeared in more than 50 films. Some of her biggest roles have included “Gone With The Wind” in 1939, “The Snake Pit” in 1948 and the 1946 drama that earned de Havilland her first Academy Award, “To Each His Own.” She won her second Oscar for her starring role in the 1949 film “The Heiress.”

The centenarian is the last surviving adult star of “Gone With the Wind.”


Later in her career, de Havilland appeared in the 1964 drama “Hush…Hush, Sweet Charlotte” alongside her longtime friend and colleague and fellow Warner Bros. Queen of the Lot, Bette Davis.


This year, de Havilland was the only living actress portrayed on the FX series “Feud: Bette and Joan.” She was portrayed by Oscar-winner Catherin Zeta-Jones.
