Hollywood has lost a legend.
Olivia de Havilland has died, E! News has learned. The legendary star, who rose to fame in the Golden Age of Cinema and changed the Hollywood system forever, passed away on Saturday, July 26, at the age of 104.
A rep for the actress told E! News she died “peacefully from natural causes at her residence in Paris, France.”
Olivia’s Hollywood career is straight out of a movie itself. Her rep notes that after making her debut in the Hollywood Bowl production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, she was signed to a contract with Warner Bros. That deal would make her a household name, as she starred in countless films that spanned over six decades.
Some of her most notable films include Gone With the Wind, Captain Blood, The Heiress, The Adventures of Robin Hood and so many others.
In 1946, she won her first Academy Award for the category Best Actress in a Leading Role for To Each His Own. In 1949, she took home the same Oscar award for The Heiress.
