Olivia de Havilland was the first contract actress to successfully sue a major studio, Warner Bros., because she was unsatisfied with the quality of the scripts she was given. This decision limited the terms of studio-player contracts, including suspension, to a maximum of seven years.
She has been married to Marcus Aurelius Goodrich, and to Pierre Paul Galante, editor of Paris Match.
As of 2003, Olivia de Havilland is in retirement at the age of 86 years old in Paris, France, in good health and living with her daughter. She speaks English and French.
