Joan Fontaine's Death Ends Hollywood's Longest-Running Sibling Rivarly
Hollywood's longest-running sibling rivalry is over at last. Screen legend and Oscar winning actress Joan Fontaine, star of the Hitchcock classic Rebecca, is dead at age 96.
Fontaine won the Academy Award for Best Actress in the Hitchcock film, Suspicion, opposite Cary Grant.
But she was equally famous for her lifelong feud with her sister, Gone with the Wind actress Olivia de Havilland. Fontaine once said, "I married first, won the Oscar before Olivia did, and if I die first, she'll undoubtedly be livid because I beat her to it."
Well, Olivia de Havilland is still alive at 97. No word from her yet on her sister's passing.
