The Sibling Rivalry of Olivia de Havilland & Joan Fontaine


In Hollywood, the sibling rivalry between Olivia de Havilland and Joan Fontaine was legendary. The two sisters competed for the same roles and often feuded with each other. Their rivalry was so intense that they refused to speak to each other for years at a time.

Their feud began in childhood, when their mother would force them to compete in games like who could recite more Bible verses. As adults, they continued to compete for attention from directors and producers. Fontaine allegedly spread rumours that de Havilland was difficult to work with on set.

The sisters eventually made up, but their feud continued to make headlines. In later years, they published books that detailed their rivalry and offered different accounts of what happened behind the scenes.

Fontaine once said of her sister, "She has integrity and talent and guts." De Havilland echoed those sentiments, saying "She is a very fine actress indeed and I think her work will be remembered long after mine is forgotten.
