    Laurence Olivier and Vivien Leigh: a love story | Person | Culture

    On August 30, 1940, the wedding of Laurence Olivier and Vivien Leigh took place in Santa Barbara, California. This ceremony, almost secret (since only actress Katharine Hepburn and screenwriter Garson Kanin ) were preceded by a stormy romance and difficult divorces of lovers. They lived together for 20 years, during which Vivien turned from an aspiring actress into a movie star suffering from a serious illness and depression. And the success of Vivien Lawrence could not forgive her. As he could not help to cope with her mental disorder. AiF.ru recalls the love story of one of the most beautiful movie couples.

    Vivien Leigh was born in 1913 in India, where her English father served. She announced her desire to become an actress to her parents in early childhood, and they not only did not dissuade her daughter, but, on the contrary, supported her undertakings. Her father helped Vivien enter the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts in London. Then, at the end of 1931, Vivienne met lawyer Herbert Lee Holman , whom she married in 1932. A year later they had a daughter0011 Suzanne. However, despite the family idyll, Vivien did not leave her dreams of the stage and cinema. The screen debut of Vivien Leigh, who, on the advice of a hired agent, changed her surname Holman to a more sonorous one, took place in the film “Things are going smoothly”. This small role went almost unnoticed and did not deserve rave reviews from critics. But things were going better in the theater: in 1935, Vivien Leigh played in the play The Mask of Virtue, where she was noticed not only by the audience and journalists, but also by Laurence Olivier, who saw the production. nine0007 Vivien Leigh with Laurence Olivier.

    By that time, Larry Olivier was already a star of the English theater: in the 1930s he appeared on stage in productions of Hamlet, Macbeth, Othello, King Lear, both in major and minor roles. At the same time, the actor began acting in films, including playing a major role in the film by Raoul Walsh "Yellow Ticket". Like Vivien Leigh, Olivier was already tied by the knot by that time - his first wife was actress Jill Esmond , who gave birth to Lawrence's son Tarquin .

    Olivier was impressed by the performance of the young actress Vivien Leigh, she, of course, saw Olivier on stage more than once and dreamed of meeting her. Their meeting grew into friendship, and then into a stormy romance, which began on the set of the film "Flame over England" in 1936 - on the screen, the actors played lovers and after that they no longer parted, despite the fact that their legal spouses for a long time refused to give divorce. “I don’t remember a day of my life when I didn’t remember how my father left my mother for the most beautiful woman in the world and how my mother continued to love him,” Tarquin Olivier said in an interview. “He was a good man, and I don't feel any bitterness. Vivienne and Larry were supposed to be together, they were an amazing couple." nine0007 Laurence Olivier and Vivien Leigh. 1948. Photo: Wikipedia

    Despite the success at home, Hollywood was still an unconquered peak for Olivier. The first attempts to break into American screens failed, and therefore the actor enthusiastically accepted the offer to play the role of Heathcliff in Wuthering Heights in 1939 and left for America, leaving his young wife in London. However, Vivien Leigh did not have to grieve for a long time - she went to Los Angeles to audition for Gone with the Wind. Bypassing competitors, the actress got the role of Scarlett O'Hara , which eventually brought her not only worldwide fame, but also the Oscar. Larry, who was initially against Vivienne's participation in the filming, was very upset by her success, which at that moment overshadowed his own achievements - wounded pride became the reason for the first serious quarrels. Biographer Laurence Olivier later wrote in his book that during this period, the actress plagued both Olivier and her colleagues on the set with mood swings and unstable behavior - rumors of a manic-depressive psychosis, which the actress allegedly suffered from, accompanied her all her life. Some actors and directors spoke about how hard it was to work with Lee, while others, on the contrary, denied this and talked about how professional she was on the set. The actress herself, during the filming of Gone with the Wind, wrote at that time to her legal spouse to Lee Holman who hates Hollywood and hates acting in films.

    After the wedding, which Olivier and Lee did play in 1940, both hoped for joint projects and shootings. The actors did not succeed in fulfilling this dream right away: for example, Vivienne did not pass the audition for the film by Alfred Hitchcock "Rebecca", where Olivier played the main role. Only in 1941, the couple played together in the melodrama by Alexander Korda "Lady Hamilton". He played the role of Admiral Nelson , she is his lover Emma. The story largely repeated their personal story - the characters of the film live together, despite Emma's marriage.

    Not all of the couple's collaborations were successful. The Broadway production of Romeo and Juliet failed, and both actors received unflattering reviews in the press. The experiences associated with work affected the health of Vivien Leigh, who in 1944 fell ill with tuberculosis, and later suffered a miscarriage - in 20 years of marriage, she and Larry never had children. The mental state of the actress also worsened, she fell into depression, accompanied by severe emotional breakdowns. Olivier became the object of attacks more and more often. At 1947, after he was knighted and Vivien became a lady, the couple went on a tour of Australia and New Zealand together. On tour, the purpose of which was to raise funds for the London Old Vic Theater - Olivier was appointed its director - the couple played in several performances. Despite the success of the audience, the tour was exhausting for both - daily performances affected Vivien Leigh's already shaken physical and moral health. Then even their stage partners noticed how tense the relationship of lovers became - they made scandals no longer behind closed doors, but in public. nine0007 Vivien Leigh and Marlon Brando in A Streetcar Named Desire, 1951.

    However, the tour was a success, and it helped Olivier and Leigh recover from previous setbacks. Moreover, ahead of the actress was a role that would later become the main one in her career. In London, they were preparing to stage the play by Tennessee Williams "A Streetcar Named Desire" - the author and producer of the production, who saw Vivien in other performances, approved the actress for the role of Blanche Dubois , and her husband undertook to stage the play as a director. Both the play and the production became the subject of heated discussions - the author was accused of obscenity and excessive frankness, the actress - that she did not fit the role - how can a cold Englishwoman play a passionate American? The audience, reading reviews, over and over again arranged a full house. Articles in the press did not affect the world recognition of both Tennessee Williams, who was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for this work, and Vivien Leigh, who was invited to Hollywood to shoot the film version of A Streetcar Named Desire. Lead male role - Stanley Kowalski - played in the film Marlon Brando , who previously played in the New York theater production of the play.

    The picture brought the actress a second Oscar, but finally undermined both her health and her relationship with Laurence Olivier. Vivien Leigh has repeatedly said that it was the role of Blanche Dubois that led her to insanity and a psychiatric clinic, where the actress was forced to go to in 1953. This was preceded by an agonizing trip to Ceylon for the filming of the film "Elephant Walk". Olivier refused the proposed male lead, his place was taken by Peter Finch , who supported the actress. In a hot and humid climate, tuberculosis worsened, and everything else, Vivien yearned for the absence of her husband - as a result, the director decided to send Lee home, and give her role to Elizabeth Taylor . In London, Vivien, who had another seizure on the way, was met by Olivier, who immediately took her not home, but to the clinic.

    The treatment changed the actress almost beyond recognition. “She became completely different from the woman I once fell in love with,” Olivier said. “She was now as alien to me as you can imagine.” The actor backed up his words with actions. While Vivienne was trying to cope with the attacks and the reaction of others around them, he started an affair with an actress Joan Plowright . Despite the fact that Olivier himself was the owner of two Oscars, a Golden Globe and a BAFTA award, Vivien Leigh's success and recognition in the cinema surpassed his own - it was not easy for the great Larry to come to terms with this. And after all, it was at that moment that the actress needed his support, more than ever before - she had to cope with her illnesses alone. Despite her husband's neglect and deteriorating health every day, she continued to act in films and play in the theater. nine0007

    Lawrence Olivier asked for a divorce in 1960, sending Vivien Leigh a telegram and giving her a Rolls-Royce on the occasion of parting. After the separation was formalized, the actor almost immediately married Plowright, who later bore him three children.

    Vivien Leigh died in 1967 from another bout of tuberculosis, which in recent years has happened to her more and more often and was harder every time.
