Leigh gained fame for the role of Scarlett O’Hara in the movie “Gone with the Wind” (1939), for which she won an Oscar. Leigh was active in the entertainment industry from 1920 to 1967, when she passed away.

Vivien Leigh Net Worth $10 Million

To begin with, Vivien Leigh was the daughter of rich stockbroker Ernest Hartley and Gertrude Yackjee. She was born in India where she spent the first six years of her life. In 1920, the family left Darjeeling and returned to England. Leigh was sent to a Catholic boarding school for the next eight years. Then, she studied drama at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in London.

Vivien had appeared on stage with her mother when she was three, but it wasn’t until 1934 that she worked in her first film – “Things Are Looking Up”. The film producer Alexander Korda saw her in the play “The Mask of Virtue” (1935) and gave her a contract for ten British films and she starred in six of them, and then went to Hollywood in 1938. Myron Selznick was thrilled by the actress Vivien, who was still unknown in the USA. She was offered the famous role of Scarlett O’Hara, even though Leigh had to take speech lessons to learn the southern US state’s accent. In addition, she took singing and ballet lessons to improve voice and attitude. During the filming of “Gone With The Winds”, the script was constantly rewritten; there had never been such a large scale production in Hollywood that brought such enormous work to the producers, the three directors, the actors and technical crew. In 1940, she received an Oscar for her role as the Best Actress, afterward which the actress returned to England, her net worth and reputation well established.

In 1947, Leigh signed the contract for shooting “Anna Karenina”. Although she was severely depressed and psychotic, and suffered from excessive alcohol consumption, she loved the role of Anna. In the autumn of 1949, Leigh played the role of Blanche in the Hollywood adaptation of the play “A Streetcar Named Desire” alongside Marlon Brando. Thus, Leigh won her second Oscar as the Best Actress.

From 1950 on, Leigh was often sick and suffered several nervous breakdowns. She went into psychiatric treatment, and she was often forced to stop shooting because of her health. She also suffered from severe memory problems and could no longer perform regularly in the theatre. In the years 1960 – 1961, Vivien Leigh sank deeper and deeper into depression. She also drank a lot, but still managed to be successful on the stage. In 1960, she began the shooting “The Roman Spring of Mrs. Stone” and for her portrayal in the film, she received good reviews, which helped her health so much that she wanted to perform again. In 1963, she was honoured with a Tony Award for starring in the musical “Tovarich”, the performances, however, turned out to be so exhausting that she suffered burnout, and had to go into a psychiatric clinic again. From then on, she was taken care of and accompanied by a nurse. In 1965, she toured with the play “Ivanov” by Anton P. Chekhov through England and the US, adding steadily to her net worth.

Finally, in the personal life of the actress, Leigh and Herbert Leigh Holman married in 1932, and the following year their daughter Suzanne was born, but they divorced in 1940. Shortly afterwards, she married actor Laurence Olivier, but they divorced in 1960. From then until her death she was in a relationship with John Merivale. On the 7th July 1967, John Merivale found her dead on the floor of her bedroom in London, England – the cause of death was tuberculosis. Her ashes were scattered on the pond of their last residence, Tickerage Mill.

#Quote
1Comedy is much more difficult than tragedy - and a much better training, I think. It's much easier to make people cry than to make them laugh.
2I cannot let well enough alone. I get restless. I have to be doing different things. I am a very impatient person and headstrong. If I've made up my mind to do something, I can't be persuaded out of it.
3Who could quarrel with Clark Gable? We got on well. Whenever anyone on the set [of Gone with the Wind (1939)] was tired or depressed, it was Gable who cheered that person up. Then the newspapers began printing the story that Gable and I were not getting on. This was so ridiculous it served only as a joke. From that time on, the standard greeting between Clark and myself became, "How are you not getting on today?"
4Most of us have compromised with life. Those who fight for what they want will always thrill us.
5I'm not a film star; I am an actress. Being a film star is such a false life, lived for fake values and for publicity.
6[on Warren Beatty] He has the kind of magnetic sensuality you could light torches with.
7Actresses go on for a long time and there are always marvelous parts to play.
8Am I finished with Hollywood? Good heavens, no! I shall certainly go back there if there is a film to make.
9All day long you're really leading up to the evening's performance. To time everything correctly, you have to take care of yourself - which is a very difficult thing to do, because it's highly emotional
10[on Alexander Korda] Alex was like a father to us - we went to see him with every little problem we had. We usually left convinced that he had solved it - or that we'd got our own way.
11[when asked to take over Joan Crawford's role in Hush...Hush, Sweet Charlotte (1964)] No, thank you. I can just about stand looking at Joan Crawford's face at six o'clock in the morning, but not Bette Davis'.
12Scorpios burn themselves out and eat themselves up and they are careless about themselves - like me. I swing between happiness and misery and I cry easily. I am a mixture of my mother's determination and my father's optimism. I am part prude and part non-conformist and I say what I think and don't dissemble. I am a mixture of French, Irish and Yorkshire, and perhaps that's what it all is.
13Some critics saw fit to say that I was a great actress. I thought that was a foolish, wicked thing to say because it put such an onus and such a responsibility onto me, which I simply wasn't able to carry.
14[to critics about her reviews for "The Mask of Virtue" (1935), her second play on the London stage] It's much easier to make people cry than to make them laugh.

13Stepmother of Tarquin Olivier.

15The nickname Vivling was given to her by her father. It's a combination of her name and the word darling.
16After Joan Crawford quit filming Hush...Hush, Sweet Charlotte (1964), Leigh was offered her role which she turned down. Olivia de Havilland, Leigh's co-star in Gone with the Wind (1939) was then offered and accepted the role.
17When making Gone with the Wind (1939), super macho director Victor Fleming wanted Scarlett, for at least once in the film, to look like his hunting buddy Clark Gable's type of woman. So, when wearing the stunning low-cut burgundy velvet dress with rhinestones that Scarlett wears to Ashley Wilkes' birthday party in the second half of the film, to achieve the desired cleavage for Fleming, Walter Plunkett had to tape Vivien Leigh's breasts together.
18As of 2013, she is only one of six actors who have a 2-0 winning record when nominated for an acting Oscar. The others are Luise Rainer for The Great Ziegfeld (1936) and The Good Earth (1937); Helen Hayes for The Sin of Madelon Claudet (1931) and Airport (1970); Kevin Spacey for The Usual Suspects (1995) and American Beauty (1999); Hilary Swank for Boys Don't Cry (1999) and Million Dollar Baby (2004); and Christoph Waltz for Inglourious Basterds (2009) and Django Unchained (2012).
19Was the first British actress to receive an Academy Award. She won the Best Actress Oscar for Gone with the Wind (1939) in February 1940.
20Had four great-grandchildren: Ashua, Amy, Sophie and Tessa. The great-grandchildren, the girls in particular, bear a striking resemblance to Suzanne.
21Was close friends with Rachel Kempson, the mother of Oscar-winning actress Vanessa Redgrave.
22Despite her legendary stature, Leigh made fewer than twenty films in her career.
23Her father was a full-blooded Englishmen, while her mother was of French and Irish ancestry.
24Was obsessed with hiding her large hands. Gloves were a favorite cover-up, she owned more than 150 pairs. Interestingly enough, one of the frequent descriptions of Vivien's most famous character Scarlett O'Hara in the novel Gone with the Wind (1939) is that she has extremely small hands.
25Eventually, Vivien needed shock therapy to control her manic depression. Sometimes, she would go on stage just hours after her treatments, without missing a beat in her performance.
26Her performance as Scarlett O'Hara in Gone with the Wind (1939) is ranked #3 on Premiere magazine's 100 Greatest Movie Characters of All Time.
27Peter Finch was discovered by Laurence Olivier in 1948 when Olivier and his theatrical company, which included wife Leigh, were conducting a tour of Australia, Olivier signed the young Aussie to a personal contract and Finch became part of Olivier's theatrical company. He then proceeded to cuckold his mentor and employer by bedding Leigh. Olivier was personally humiliated but ever the trouper, he kept the talented Finch under contract after having brought him back to England, where Finch flourished as an actor. Finch and Leigh carried on a long affair, and since Leigh was bipolar and her manic-depression frequently manifested itself in nymphomania, some speculate that Olivier subconsciously might have been grateful for Finch as he occupied Leigh's hours and kept her out of worse trouble and Olivier from even worse embarrassment. Their on-again, off-again affair reportedly reached a crisis point on the movie Elephant Walk (1954), when they had renewed their affair. However, the instability of their relationship allegedly triggered a nervous breakdown in Leigh, and Olivier had to step in to take care of her.
28Laurence Olivier wrote in his autobiography, "Confessions of an Actor", that sometime after World War II, Leigh announced calmly that she was no longer in love with him, but loved him like a brother. Olivier was emotionally devastated. What he did not know at the time was that Leigh's declaration -- and her subsequent affairs with multiple partners -- was a signal of the bipolar disorder that eventually disrupted her life and career. Leigh had every intention of remaining married to Olivier, but was no longer interested in him romantically. Olivier himself began having affairs (including one with Claire Bloom in the 1950s, according to Bloom's own autobiography) as Leigh's eye and amorous intentions wandered and roamed outside of the marital bedchamber. Olivier had to accompany Leigh to Hollywood in 1950 in order to keep an eye on her and keep her out of trouble, to ensure that her manic-depression did not get out of hand and disrupt the production of A Streetcar Named Desire (1951). In order to do so, he accepted a role in William Wyler's Carrie (1952) that was shot at the same time as Streetcar. The Oliviers were popular with Hollywood's elite, and Elia Kazan and Marlon Brando both liked "Larry" very much (that was the reason that Brando gave in his own autobiography for not sleeping with Leigh, whom he thought had a superior posterior -- he could not raid Olivier's "chicken coop" as "Larry was such a nice guy".) None of them knew the depths of the anguish he was enduring as the caretaker of his mentally ill wife. Brando said that Leigh was superior to Jessica Tandy -- the original stage Blanche DuBois -- as she was Blanche. Ironically, Olivier himself had directed Leigh in the role on the London stage.
29She was supposed to star in the Paramount film Elephant Walk (1954) with Peter Finch and Dana Andrews, but after appearing in a few scenes she was replaced by Elizabeth Taylor. The reasons for Leigh's dismissal were rumored to be her difficult nature, having just been diagnosed as a manic-depressive. Further complications may have erupted because of an affair she had with co-star Finch while she was still married to Laurence Olivier, and Leigh and Olivier were still married in 1954.
30She was awarded a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame at 6773 Hollywood Boulevard in Hollywood, California on February 8, 1960.
31Was named #16 Actress on The American Film Institute's 50 Greatest Screen Legends.
32Won Broadway's 1963 Tony Award as Best Actress (Musical) for "Tovarich".
33Although she was a British subject for her whole life, her ancestry was French and Irish.
34Had an affair with actor Peter Finch that nearly ended her marriage to Laurence Olivier. The movie The V.I.P.s (1963) is based on an incident from Leigh's and Olivier's marriage, when she was about to leave him for Finch but Olivier wooed her back.
35She desperately wanted to play the second Mrs. De Winter in Rebecca (1940) opposite her husband Laurence Olivier, but producer David O. Selznick thought the role would dilute her value as a Scarlett O'Hara type and cast Joan Fontaine instead. His decision severely strained her professional relationship with Selznick; neither she nor Olivier ever appeared in one of his films again. Fontaine won her first Academy Award nomination in the role.
36Kept Laurence Olivier's photograph beside her bed and on her dressing table even after they divorced. Until her death, she was addressed as "Lady Olivier".
37Reportedly used one of her two Oscars to doorstop her bathroom.
38Godmother of actress Juliet Mills and Suzanna Leigh.
39She took her then husband's first name (Leigh) as her last name when she began acting professionally.
40Her favorite role was that of Myra Lester, which she played in Waterloo Bridge (1940).
41Pictured on one of four 25¢ US commemorative postage stamps issued March 23, 1990 honoring classic films released in 1939. The stamp features Clark Gable and Leigh as Rhett Butler and Scarlett O'Hara from Gone with the Wind (1939). The other films honored were Beau Geste (1939), Stagecoach (1939) and The Wizard of Oz (1939).
42Was offered the supporting role of Isabella in Wuthering Heights (1939), but decided to gamble and hold out for the lead role of Cathy. Director William Wyler thought she was crazy to pass up the opportunity, telling her, "You will never get a better part than Isabella for an American debut." Shortly after, she landed the plum role of Scarlett O'Hara.
43Claimed that when she tested for Gone with the Wind (1939), the costume was still warm from the actress who preceded her.
44A lover of cats, especially Siamese.
45Married Laurence Olivier at San Ysidro Ranch in Santa Barbara on August 31, 1940, with Katharine Hepburn as matron of honor; they honeymooned on actor Ronald Colman's yacht.
46According to legend, Myron Selznick introduced Vivien to his brother - Gone with the Wind (1939) producer David O. Selznick - with the words, "Hey, genius! Meet your Scarlett.".
47The producer of the 1935 play "The Mask of Virtue" suggested to her that she change the 'a' in her first name to an 'e' from "Vivian" to "Vivien".
48Laurence Olivier's first wife, Jill Esmond, named Vivien as co-respondent in her February 1940 divorce from Olivier on grounds of adultery. Vivien would name Joan Plowright - Olivier's next and last wife - as co-respondent in her 1960 divorce from Olivier, also on grounds of adultery.
49Scarlett O'Hara might have been played by an actress called 'April Morn', a stage name she briefly considered before settling on Vivien Leigh.
50After cremation at Golders Green, London, her ashes were scattered on the mill pond at her home, Tickerage Mill, at Blackboys in Sussex.
51Gertrude Hartley, while awaiting the birth of her child in Darjeeling, spent 15 minutes every morning gazing at the Himalayas in the belief that their astonishing beauty would be passed to her unborn child.
52A heavy smoker, Leigh was smoking almost four packs a day during filming of Gone with the Wind (1939).
53Lived with John Merivale from 1959 until her death in 1967.
54Suffered from bipolar disorder (referred to as "manic depression" at the time of her diagnosis).
55Ranked #48 in Empire (UK) magazine's "The Top 100 Movie Stars of All Time" list. [October 1997]
