Vivien Leigh was a dirty girl

The Daily Mail has this breaking news:%0D %0D "Her marriage to Olivier was a sham, with both cheating on one another within months of becoming lovers in 1937, according to unpublished memoirs and witness accounts. At least three of the Oscar winner's lesbian conquests are revealed in 'Damn You, Scarlett O'Hara', to be published in the U.S. And, according to reports, the biography describes her insatiable appetite for 'rough trade' - male prostitutes picked up at Scotty's, a Los Angeles brothel that masqueraded as a petrol station. %C3%A2%C2%80%C2%98In the 1940s the world%C3%A2%C2%80%C2%99s most recognisable star would drive down to Scotty%C3%A2%C2%80%C2%99s with her friend George Cukor, the initial director of %C3%A2%C2%80%C2%98Gone with the Wind%C3%A2%C2%80%C2%99, and they would pick out young men for the night,%C3%A2%C2%80%C2%99 a publishing source said.%C3%A2%C2%80%C2%98They would pay the men with gifts such as cigarette cases, jewels or even stocks and bonds. She depended on the professional discretion of men not to boast they had just serviced Scarlett O'Hara,' Miss Leigh was apparently even kicked out of an Italian hotel for bringing back too many 'street boys'. %C3%A2%C2%80%C2%98Today, she would be diagnosed as bipolar and there are drugs that would help, but in those days people did not know how to deal with a star who tore off all her clothes and ran out of her house,' the source added. The memoir is by Darwin Porter, who knew the British actress in the 1960s, and Roy Moseley, Olivier's former assistant. 'They were both beautiful and both wanted more,' the authors say. %C3%A2%C2%80%C2%98Vivien loved to torture Olivier with her affairs, especially after she grew more mentally ill, depressed and manic.%C3%A2%C2%80%C2%99 In addition to flings with British actress Isabel Jeans and two other women, Miss Leigh also cheated with co-stars Marlon Brando and Rex Harrison, they add."%0D %0D
