In January of l932,Vivien met Leigh Holman.They married. But her destiny would not remain domestic for long however, so on Angust 21st, 1934 she arrived at Lime Grove Studios to begin work on her first film,Things are Looking Up. In September, Vivien went to see a play called Theatre Royal starring a popular new stage actor, Laurence Olivier, and was intrigued by his good looks and stage presence. During this period Vivien found a new favourite novel that she re-read several times -Gone with the wind.5he even asked her agent to submit her name to the widely publicized search to find an actress for Scarlett O\'Hara. After aremarkably well一timed introduction to David O. Selznick by her HoIlvWood agent on December l0th, the first night of location shooting, Vivien did screen tests for her dream role. Both Selznick, and the film\'s director George Cukor, were impressed by her talent and beauty.

  As soon as the filming was finished, Vivien did a screen test for the film, Rebecca. She didn't seem right for the part -qualities which made her ideal for Scarlett now made her unsuited for such a restrained role, Vivien next was given the lead role in MGM\'s Waterloo Bridge as part of her new Hollywood counter, although she would have Preferred working on Pride and Prejudice, Olivier had the option to work with her as the leading man in Woterloo Bridge or take the lead in Pride and Prejudice. Vivien would work on either film, as long as she could work with Olivier.Due to her contract however, she ended up signing om to Waterloo Bridge without him. Meanwhile, she prepared for the grand opening of GWTW in Atlanta. It opened to great reviews and Vivien became the talk of the town. Right after Christmas, she begin work on Waterloo Bridge, talking ballet lessons for a scene early On in the film, and voice lessons to improve her acting technique. At this point in l940, Leigh Holman finally filled for divorce.This meant that after 6 months wait.Vivien would be free to marry Olivier. Their wedding ceremony took place at the San Ysidro Ranch in Santa Barbara on August 31st, 1940, with Katharine Hepburn as the maid of honour.

  In the summer of l950, Vivien left England to return to Hollywood after nearly a decade absence, and began work on the film version of A StreetCar Named Desire. Shooting started Angust 14th and Warner Brothers paid Vivien $100,000 for her 3 months of work. Vlvien purposely made herself look older and unflattering for the film一using heavy makeup,wige and drastic lighting which would hide her still beautiful features.Audiences in the autumn of l951 were stunned to see such a different person, barely recognizing the actress that played Scarlett so exquisitely a decade earlier The resulting film in l951 was still powerful, perhaps Vivien\'s finest achievement, winning her a second best actress Oscar.

  In l937 she received an unwelcome telegram from Olivier asking for divorce, but in her heart, she always believed tha、 he would come back to her Vivien drank severely during this period and was diagnosed with cyclic manic- depressive psychosis. The divorce settlement between Vivien and Olivie. was finalized on December 2nd,1960. Then Vivien did a reading at Oxford which would become her last public appearance. In May, she became very ill and refused to be admitted to a hospital. She continued to smoke and entertain her many friends and visitors,preferring to live as she always had.
