Olivia de Havilland turns 100: ‘Gone With The Wind’ star gives her younger self some advice

One of the last women stars of the Golden Age of Hollywood and ‘Gone with the Wind’ actress Olivia de Havilland is celebrating her 100th birthday by having drinks with “dear, dear friends”.

The centenarian, who has lived in Paris for more than six decades, said she is content with the role that life has given her.

      I don’t remember where, I think it was the Amazing Colossal Podcast.
      Gilbert was interviewing someone who said that either Vivien Leigh or Bette Davis told them that don’t you be fooled by Olivia’s innocence.
      She’s the biggest conniver and would stab you for your role.
      Look at that picture.
      Look at her face.
      Look at those eyes.
      There’s something cold there.
      I actually quite admire it.

    Fun fact – She is the cousin of aviation pioneer and founder of De Havilland Aircraft, Sir Geoffrey De Havilland.

    I hope I’m still drinking champagne at 100.

    I love all those old movies — most of the new ones aren’t worth watching.
