Vivien never dated Marlon Brando. In his autobiography he said while he was attracted to her, he couldn't bring himself to seduce her because he found Laurence Olivier (her husband), to be 'such a nice guy'. It's even in the Marlon Brando trivia on this website.

Vivien Leigh was one of the most beautiful women to ever walk the face of the earth!!

please answer my questionFeb 19, 2011

what would Vivien Leigh's hobbies be..?

TeachJan 13, 2011

I know she was troubled (bi-polar and all)but she must have had a death wish to go with Brando and Beatty. Teach

Ah...if only Vivien and Clark really had been in love. They'd have the most beautiful children/sobs

Elia Kazan and Vivien Leigh did not get along at all, during the filming of Streetcar they fought constantly. It makes no sense for him to be listed as one of her relationships. and where did walt disney come from?
