Happy Birthday Livvie
The summer of 2006 has been a particularly busy one for the star, as she graciously accepted an honorary tribute from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in mid-June. Besides de Havilland, who had flown in from her home in Paris, other distinguished guests included the night's host Robert Osborne, and studio-head-spawn Daniel Selznick, Roger Mayer and Samuel Goldwyn, Jr. (yes, descended from the David O., Louis B. and Samuel L. of yore, respectively).I, for one - always being more of a Miss Melly than a Scarlett kinda girl - am ecstatic that Olivia is being honored by both her esteemed colleagues and her fans alike. She is a true living legend, a dedicated and multi-talented actress, and an overall lovely woman. All my best to you, Olivia! The Male Animal was awesome!
