Astonishingly, actress and Dame Olivia de Havilland just turned 103 years old in July 2019. The Golden Age great holds two Academy Awards after a career in Hollywood spanning more than half a century. But all of that is arguably eclipsed by her turbulent relationship with younger sister and fellow Oscar-winning actress, Joan Fontaine.
For you see, from as early as both women could remember, de Havilland and Fontaine had quarrelled. And although they attempted reconciliation multiple times, a spat in 1975 kept them apart for the rest of their lives. In fact, even after Fontaine’s death in 2013, de Havilland filed a lawsuit that related to their lifelong struggle, too.
