Celebrity Divorces: Vivien Leigh

Today's "Celebrity Divorce" post is about Vivien Leigh, the Academy Award winning star of the movie, "Gone With the Wind," which, of course, was set in Georgia during the War Between the States. (No self-respecting blog about Georgia divorce law could fail to have posts about Ms. Leigh, or about "Gone With the Wind!")
You may have known that Ms. Leigh was married to Sir Lawrence Olivier, (from 1940 to 1960, according to Wikipedia). But did you know that this was her second marriage and second divorce, after she and Olivier split in 1960?
Sadly, Ms. Leigh suffered from manic depression and tuberculosis throughout her life. But we can always remember her fine acting work, not only in "Gone With the Wind," but also in "A Streetcar Named Desire," for which she earned a second Oscar in 1951.
