Interviewer: Didn’t the sudden rush of fame and offers that followed Gone With the Wind sweep you off your feet?
Vivien Leigh: “No. Why should it? After all I was 26 and I knew I did not want to be a film star. I had had sudden fame before when I was 19 and in ‘Mask of Virtue’ and if that didn’t affect me then, why should it at 26?”
“My horoscope was done for me three months ago and it said, ‘You’ll be lonely’ and look how right it turned out to be. I was born on Nov. 5 so I’m a Scorpio and under that sign Scorpios burn themselves out and eat themselves up and they are careless about themselves – like me.” (Vivien Leigh, 1960)
