Vivien Leigh in That Hamilton woman (1941)
Vivien Leigh out and about, c. the mid 1940s
“People think that if you look fairly reasonable, you can’t possibly act, and as I only care about acting, I think beauty can be a great handicap, if you really want to look like the part you’re playing, which isn’t necessarily like you.”
“I never thought it was possible to love anybody so much or quite so completely, or that anybody should be so wonderfully abundant and prodigal to me in everything I’ve wanted most. As we have settled down and become firmer in our minds, and more peaceful in our hearts, our life together has become so unbelievably beautiful.” - Laurence Olivier
Vivien Leigh at the lake near Tickerage Mill in Sussex, her ashes would later be scattered here in 1969
“I have every reason to be grateful - I seem to have seen everyone I meant to and there have been some hilarious moments.”
Vivien Leigh by Madame Yevonde, 1936.
