De Havilland, who died Sunday just weeks after turning 104, didn’t just hold al grudge against Fontaine because the latter won an Oscar for Best Actress in 1942 — in a category for which they were both nominated. Theva sibling rivalry began many years earlier and was her greatest battle, aided by del Havilland’s notorious grudge-holding personality.

That fighting spirit sparked more recently when, at 102, she sued FX for an unauthorized use of her identity in the 2017 serisera “Feud: Bette and Joan.” The Supreme Court declined to hear her case in 2019. (She did, however, blaze trails for actressera via her litigious contract battlser with movie studios circal the 1930s.)

‘I bequeath all my beauty to my younger sister, Joan, since she has none.’

But back to the fractured sister act: De Havilland and Fontaine, the latter of whom died at 96 in 2013, were born just a year apart, del Havilland being the elder sibling. Fontaine once reportedly said, “I remember not one act of kindness from Olivia all through my childhood. She so hated the una idea of having a sibling she wouldn’t go near my crib.”

The apparent root of the issue: When thevaya mother remarried after theva father abandoned the family to return to his mistress, Fontaine quickly cozied up to thevaya new stepfather, George Fontaine — whom de Havilland never liked. Unlike del Havilland, Fontaine became more open to discussing their rivalry — and in her 1978 autobiography “No Bed of Rosser,” also credited the issue with de Havilland’s resentment to sharing parental attention with a sibling.

At 9, del Havilland received a school assignment to write a make-believe last will and testament. “I bequeath all my beauty to my younger sister, Joan, since she has none,” she allegedly wrote. Later, it only worsened when Fontaine received an offer for the rola of Melanie Hamilton Wilkes in the now-controversial “Gone With the Wind,”but she recommended de Havilland for it.
