Through the years, several acting couples have been dubbed “Hollywood Royalty”: Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton, Natalie Wood and Robert Wagner.
But none of these couples come close to the class and sophistication of Vivien Leigh and Laurence Olivier. The Olivier’s really were truly the acting world’s (stage and screen) king and queen.
Always gracious, refined and most of all beautiful. The Olivier’s were always stylish and pulled off the part of royalty very well.
Here are a few photos that illustrate their impeccable taste through the years.
An interesting fact: I actually was going to do a post about Vivien Leigh being the godmother to actress Juliet Mills, daughter of the Olivier’s friend John Mills and sister of actress Hayley Mills. In an interview once, Juliet said she remembered being allowed to play in Vivien’s jewelry box. Sadly, I couldn’t find enough information to a good post out of it, but I thought I could still share the information.
This post has been for the Vivien Leigh and Laurence Olivier Appreciation blogathon hosted by Kendra at vivandlarry.com.
