Born in Japan to Walter Augustus de Havilland and Lilian Augusta de Havilland Fontaine, she moved to California in 1919, with her parents and sister, Joan Fontaine, who later became an actress as well. However, her parents divorced, and Olivia stayed with her mother and sister in California, in Saratoga, a village around 80km from San Francisco.

Since an early age, Olivia was taught to love the arts. Influenced and taught by her mother, it was only a matter of time before Olivia would become a professional actress, or a ballet dancer or even a pianist. She went to the Los Gatos High School, where she was heavily involved in the school`s drama club, and also became its secretary. Following her matriculation, she received a scholarship to Mills College in Oakland, which would enable her to study English language and become a professor, however, she was spotted by Max Reinhardt`s assistant and was offered the role of Hermia in “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”, which would be presented in Broadway theaters. She accepted the offer, and after the premiere, Max took Olivia on a four week tour, as he was impressed by her performance.
The next big thing for Olivia was the role of Hermia in the film production of “A Midsummer Night`s Dream”, which Reinhardt directed, after Warner Bros. decided to produce the film. Olivia then signed a contract with the production house, which would earn her $200 per week for the next five years. This marked the real beginning of her professional career, and an increase to her net worth.

During the 1930s, Olivia built a name for herself, appearing in such films as “Captain Blood” (1936) with Errol Flynn and Lionel Atwill, then in “The Great Garrick”, before making a breakout appearance as Marian in the film “The Adventures of Robin Hood” (1938), again with Flynn. The role celebrated her as an actress, but also added a lot to her net worth.

After the role of Marian, she was selected to play Melanie Hamilton in the highly successful film “Gone With The Wind” (1939) opposite Clark Gable. Through the 1940s, Olivia became one of the greatest actresses of the Hollywood Golden age, Classical era, starring in films such as “Hold Back the Dawn” (1941), “Government Girl” (1943), “To Each His Own” (1946), “Devotion” – as Charlotte, one of the Bronte sisters, alongside Ida Lupino and Paul Henreid – “The Snake Pit” (1948), and “The Heiress” (1949), with Ralph Richardson and Montgomery Cliff.

In the 1950s, she moved to Paris, and married Pierre Galante, and focused more on family, but still appeared in several successful films, including “The Lady” (1955) in the lead role, “Not As A Stranger” (1955) with Frank Sinatra, “The Ambassador`s Daughter” (1956) alongside John Forsythe, and “Libel” (1959), among others, all of which increased her net worth.

In the 1960s, her popularity began to decline, and she made her last lead role appearance in 1964 in the film “Lady in a Cage”. To the end of the 1960s, she appeared only in a couple of minor roles, in such TV series as “The Big Valley” (1965), and “The Danny Thomas Hour” (1968).

As she grew older, it became harder to find new roles, and in the 1970s she made only a few appearances in such productions as “The Screaming Woman” (1972), “Airport `77” (1977), and “The Fifth Musketeer” (1979), but they also added to her net worth.

Olivia retired in the late 1980s, after over fifty years of activity in the entertainment industry; however, before retirement, she still managed to make several notable appearances in such films as “The Royal Romance of Charles and Diana” playing Queen Elizabeth, “Anastasia: The Mystery of Anna” (1986) as the Dowager Empress Maria, and “The Woman He Loved” (1988) as Aunt Bessie Merryman, which was her last appearance.

After retiring from acting, Olivia stayed active in Hollywood, as a presenter of Academy Awards in 2003, among other appearances.

Thanks to her skills, Olivia received numerous prestigious nominations and awards, including the Academy Award in the category Best Actress in a Leading Role for her work on film “The Heiress”, and also an Academy Award in the same category, for the film “To Each His Own”. Furthermore, she won two Golden Globe awards, the first one in category Best Actress for the film “The Heiress”, and second one in category Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Series for her work on “Anastasia: The Mystery of Anna”. She also received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 1960.

Regarding her personal life, Olivia has been married and divorced twice; her first husband was Marcus Goodrich, they married in 1949 but divorced in 1953. The couple had one child together. Her second marriage was with Pierre Galante, whom she married in 1955; their marriage lasted until 1962, but they lived in the same house until 1968. She gave birth to their daughter in 1956.

1I loved France, although I initially thought they were stubborn for always speaking French. When I went to Paris, Hollywood was collapsing because of television. A whole civilization was dying, and you cannot imagine how depressed we all were. That was the real Gone with the Wind (1939) saga. We didn't know what the new world was going to be, but we were sure it wasn't going to be as good. We were right.
2[dedication to Mickey Rooney upon his death, 2014] Mickey, Mickey, Mickey. They say you have died but I find this so hard to believe, for you are so live in my memory. There you are in the big room of the Chamber of Commerce Building on Sunset Boulevard in the summer of 1934, a little boy passing easily as a nine-ear-old when you are really 13. You hand me your work copy of 'A Midsummer Night's Dream', climb onto the banquette beside me, place your head upon my lap and ask me to awaken you nine lines before your cue . . . What a memory you have left with me to keep.
3[her favorite word] I am attracted by almost any French word--written or spoken. Before I knew its meaning, I thought "saucisson" so exquisite that it seemed the perfect name to give a child--until I learned it meant "sausage"!
4[on Hush...Hush, Sweet Charlotte (1964)] The problem was I wasn't as anxious to work as she was. I didn't need to. I wasn't thrilled with the script, and I definitely didn't like my part. I was reverse-typecast, being asked to be an unsympathetic villain. It wasn't what people expected of me. It wasn't really what I wanted to do.
5[on Hush...Hush, Sweet Charlotte (1964)] [Bette Davis] wanted it so much, so I did it. I can't say I regretted it, because working with her was special, but I can't say it was a picture I am proud to put on my resume. Given the choice, I wouldn't have deprived Joan Crawford of the honor!
6[on Bette Davis] I always thought it would be fun if we could work together. Then I was offered the chance to work with her on the film that became Hush...Hush, Sweet Charlotte (1964) when Joan Crawford withdrew. I knew Bette wanted badly to work, and Jane [What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? (1962)] had been such a success that Bette was quite anxious. They had to find the replacement, and Bette wanted me.
7I felt Gone with the Wind (1939) would last five years, and it's lasted over 70, and into a new millennium. There is a special place in my heart for that film and Melanie. She was a remarkable character--a loving person, and because of that she was a happy person. And Scarlett, of course, was not.
8[Clark Gable] was supposed to cry in the scene after the death of his daughter. It worried him for days before he was to do the scene. He never cried on the screen before, and it became an obsession with him. He didn't think it was masculine for a man to cry. One day he confided in me, "Olivia, I can't do it. I'm just going to have to quit." I talked with him and convinced him that the tears denoted strength of character, not weakness. It turned out to be one of the most memorable scenes in the movie. Clark always underrated himself as an actor. I think his Rhett Butler will live forever as one of the screen's classic performances.
9[on Clark Gable] Clark Gable was highly professional. He was a bigger star than we can create today. I was just a mini-star when we did Gone with the Wind (1939). I was afraid to talk to him. People can't understand it now, but we were in awe. Clark Gable didn't open supermarkets.
10[on Bette Davis] The great lesson I learned from Bette was her absolute dedication to getting everything just right. She used to spend hours studying the character she was going to play, then hours in make-up ensuring that her physical appearance was right for the part. I have always tried to put the same amount of work into everything I've done.
11[on Michael Curtiz] He was a tyrant, he was abusive, he was cruel. Oh, he was just a villain but I guess he was pretty good. We didn't believe it then, but he clearly was. He knew what he was doing. He knew how to tell a story very clearly and he knew how to keep things going.
12[on Errol Flynn] I had a very big crush on Errol Flynn during [Captain Blood (1935)]. I thought he was absolutely smashing for three solid years, but he never guessed. Then he had one on me but nothing came of it. I'm not going to regret that; it could have ruined my life.
13The overwhelming majority of people who make up the liberal and progressive groups of this country believe in democracy, and NOT in communism. We believe that the two cannot be reconciled here in the United States, and we believe that every effort should be exerted to make democracy work, and to extend its benefits to every person in every community throughout the land.
14[in June 2006] I'll be 90 on July 1. I can't wait to be 90! Another victory!
15[in 2006, asked if she missed acting] Not at all. Life is too full of events of great importance. That is more absorbing and enriching than a fantasy life. I don't need a fantasy life as once I did. That is the life of the imagination that I had a great need for. Films were the perfect means for satisfying that need.
16[on Hush...Hush, Sweet Charlotte (1964)]: It was full of traps; it was a delicate tightrope assignment. I found that very interesting. Robert Aldrich gave it a very special style, a kind of dark, glittering style which fascinated me.
17[in 2003] I know this is not a popular thing to say at the moment, but I love living among the French. They are very independent, intelligent, well educated and creative. They are a people full of feeling, which they express. They're a vivacious people. Well, they're Celts, you see.
18[in 2004] There certainly is such a thing as screen chemistry, although I don't believe you find it frequently. There was a definite on-screen chemistry between Errol [Errol Flynn] and me. Before us, the most potent example was Janet Gaynor and Charles Farrell in the '20s and '30s. People should not be surprised by screen chemistry because, after all, life is chemistry.
19[on the continuing appeal of Gone with the Wind (1939)] It will go on forever, and how thrilling that is. It has this universal life, this continuing life. Every nation has experienced war--and defeat and renaissance. So all people can identify with the characters. Not only that, it's terribly well constructed. Something happens every three minutes, and it keeps you on your toes and the edge of your seat, which is quite a feat, I must say.
20[speaking in 1997] I have taken a long vacation, but I wouldn't object to a fascinating part in a first-rate project, something I felt I could do well or would understand and interpret in an effective way. Then I would say, "Yes". The offers still come, but not what I'm looking for.
21Playing good girls in the '30s was difficult, when the fad was to play bad girls. Actually I think playing bad girls is a bore; I have always had more luck with good girl roles because they require more from an actress.
22[after winning her second Oscar in 1950] When I won the first award in 1947, I was terribly thrilled. But this time I felt solemn, very serious and . . . shocked. Yes, shocked! It's a great responsibility to win the award twice.
23We were like a stock company at Warners. We didn't know any of the stars from the other studios.
24The TV business is soul-crushing, talent-destroying and human being-destroying. These men in their black towers don't know what they are doing. It's slave labor. There is no elegance left in anybody. They have no taste. Movies are being financed by conglomerates, which take a write-off if they don't work. The only people who fight for what the public deserves are artists.
25The one thing that you simply have to remember all the time that you are there is that Hollywood is an Oriental city. As long as you do that, you might survive. If you try to equate it with anything else, you'll perish.
26[on Hollywood's reaction to her landmark court victory against Warner Bros.] I was told I would never work again, if I lost or won. When I won, they were impressed and didn't bear a grudge.
27Famous people feel that they must perpetually be on the crest of the wave, not realizing that it is against all the rules of life. You can't be on top all the time; it isn't natural.

23In Italy almost all of her films were dubbed by either Dhia Cristiani or Lidia Simoneschi. For the Italian releases of two of her most celebrated and fondly remembered roles, Melanie Hamilton in Gone with the Wind (1939) and Maid Marian in The Adventures of Robin Hood (1938), she was dubbed, respectively, by Renata Marini and Dina Perbellini. This was the only time that either Italian actresses lent her voice to Olivia.
24In April 1946 she set off a power struggle within the Hollywood Independent Citizens Committee of the Arts, Sciences and Professions (HICCASP) by refusing to deliver two speeches in Seattle as written by her fellow executive council member Dalton Trumbo, later one of the blacklisted Hollywood Ten. She felt Trumbo's text was too left-wing and worried that the organization was becoming "automatically pro-Russian".
