Vivien Leigh, known for her role in “Gone with the Wind,” won her first Oscar for that movie. Fans hoped her romance with Rhett Butler on-screen would continue in real life, but her heart belonged to actor Laurence Olivier.
They met while filming “Fire Over England” but were married to others at the time.
Eventually, they divorced their spouses to be together, although they faced challenges, like not having children and dealing with Vivien’s mental health issues.
Laurence became jealous of her popularity, and they split. Sadly, Vivien Leigh’s mental health worsened, leading to her passing at 53.
