The feud between Olivia de Havilland and Joan Fontaine is one of the original Hollywood tussles. It’s also one of the most famous. Olivia was furious she wasn’t an only child, believing she should have her parents’ sole attention. When they both decided to pursue acting, the hatred intensified.
Olivia was cast in a movie first, but Joan beat her to the Academy Award stage. Later, when their mother died, Olivia didn’t invite Joan to the funeral, saying she would have been too busy to show up. The sisters didn’t speak again until Joan was on her deathbed and they finally made amends.
