Dame Olivia de Havilland was one of the last major living legends of the Golden Age of Hollywood. She recently passed away at the incredible age of 104 and we miss her so much. Many know her from the film Gone With the Wind and remember her as a gorgeous Golden Age starlet. Even in her later years, time had been very kind to her.
Today, we’re looking back at her incredible life through photos. We can’t help but take in all that she was throughout the many years of her beautiful life. Here’s to looking back at the late Olivia de Havilland throughout the years.
