We all have, at some point or another in our life, joked about when we reach 100 years old. Aging is a privilege denied to many, and when someone does reach a milestone such as this, it’s worth celebrating!
For Olivia De Havilland, she knows this to be very true. "The Gone With The Wind" actress is currently 101 years young and is still as lively as ever before. She continues to be filled with such grace and beauty, just as she was in her younger days. This is an honorable feat and makes her the last living cast member from one of the most beloved classic films of all time.
She was born in Tokyo, Japan, in 1916 to British parents. They later moved to the United States where Havilland grew up in California. She and her sister, Joan Fontaine, took up acting and never looked back. They are the only recorded pair of siblings to both receive Academy Awards for playing lead actress roles.
She appeared in "The Gone With The Wind" when she was in her early 20s and proceeded to star in a plethora of other films. In her acting career, she won two Oscars. She decided to step down from the limelight in the late 1980s.
Her beauty has stood the test of time and reminds us that it is possible to age with dignity and grace. We continue to admire you, Olivia, and the successful career you have had in the film industry.
