Whatever happened to Olivia Hussy?

Does Dionne Warwick know?

Her daughter, India Eisley, has been making the rounds lately; I just saw her in Every Breath you Take. She looks quite a bit like her mom.

Her career was hit-and-miss after "Romeo and Juliet", but she does have cult credit for her role in "Black Christmas". I truly believe she is one of the most beautiful women to have ever walked the earth. She has a rare beauty that is almost freakish because her features are so flawless. I've always thought it was kind of funny that she married an American metal musician (the father of her daughter India Eisley, who is also stunning).

She was in Death on the Nile in 1978 with Peter Ustinov, David Niven, Lois Chiles, Simon MacCorkindale, George Kennedy, Jane Birkin, Jack Warden, Bette Davis, Maggie Smith, John Hurt, and Angela Lansbury, who played her mother. She was definitely overshadowed by the aforementioned.

Then nothing.

I read somewhere that she has some form of agoraphobia and that took a toll on her career I'm sure. She probably doesn't work as much because of it. Very beautiful and still is. Black Christmas is a good one to pull out around this time of year. One of the scariest movies of all time.

Are there any pictures of Olivia's parents floating around the internet? I'm curious what they looked like. I know that her father was Argentinian, which you can kind of see in her features (olive skin tone, dark hair), and her mother was English. She has a younger brother, too. I wonder if he was blessed with good looks as well.

by Anonymousreply 26November 24, 2021 4:38 AM

She was very beautiful and so was Leonard Whiting. I loved the 1968 Romeo and Juliet far more than the 1996 one. I watched both in my high school English class. I'm kinda shocked there's no Twitter movement to cancel the 1968 version because of all the underage nudity as Olivia was 15 and Leonard was 17. It never bothered me and I didn't see it as sexual or pornographic personally.

I read her autobiography and she's led a sometimes hardscrabble life post Romeo and Juliet and marriage to Dino. She was never terribly ambitous and her business manager cheated her out of her funds and a house in the Hollywood Hills that she owned free and clear. A lot of moving around SoCal and juggling three kids by different husbands. I could have seen her going the Aaron Spelling route of soaps and episodic TV if she was centered in the 70's - 80's.

Olivia made a brief appearance in the ‘90 miniseries “It,” still looking gorgeous, sorry her role was so small.

by Anonymousreply 31November 24, 2021 5:04 AM

Her Argentinian father whom she resembles facially but the feminine version.

I find her very beautiful I’m not sure what her career could have amounted to in the 70s. I know she was offered and turned down a few parts including Anne of the thousand days (may have been too young) and true grit (I can’t really see her in this but who knows, maybe playing a tomboy would have been good after Juliet). In her autobiography she says she had a falling out with her good friend Liza Minnelli when Minnelli pursued the role of Camille in a proposed Franco zeffirelli film version of the “lady of the camellias”. They eventually made up but she claims it was never the same between them again. Still she was one of the many guests at Lisa’s wedding to David guest.

I think Jane Seymour sort of walked off with her career in the 70s and 80s. I think Olivia would have ended up in some melodramas sue to her Juliet image and her beauty.

If she's half Argentine. That means she's got some Italian, Spanish and Indigenous blood mixed with the other half of English. It explains her beautiful and unique look. The long straight black hair and cheekbones.

She was born in Buenos Aires and lived there during her early childhood until her parents split, R34. After, she went to England with her mother and spent the rest of her early life there. She has a unique accent that sounds British, but also kind of not—I am guessing this has to do with having lived in two different countries in her youth.

They showed us Romeo and Juliet in high school in the 80s. We had to get our parents to sign a permission slip because of the nudity. I was 13 or 14 and greatly confused because I found Leonard Whiting even more beautiful than Olivia Hussey. I still remember his nude backside but couldn’t tell you a thing about Olivia’s breasts.

In my class - I was a teen in the late 2000s. All the girls had a crush on Leonard Whiting after watching Romeo and Juliet. Me being gay was far more noticing of his beauty though I even thought Olivia was stunning. We all compared Leonard's looks to Zac Efron. Zac certainly did favor him but without the talent.

[quote]When the film was released, Hussey realized she didn't know how to cultivate relationships and had no one she could ask for advice.

[quote]She turned down many viable projects, never learning how to network.

[…]

[quote]'Years later, I would be diagnosed with a severe form of agoraphobia: large crowds, open spaces, and uncontrollable social situations fill me with dread', writes Hussey.

[…]

[quote]It was a year and a half before she accepted another film offer but she was meeting actors and connected with actor Christopher Jones, hot off the film, Wild in the Streets and being talked about as the next James Dean.

[quote]Hussey accepted a lunch date that morphed into a romance as well as what she describes as one of the darkest periods of her life.

[quote]She had been warned by Jones's manager, Rudy Altobelli, that Jones might not be the right guy for her, but she read that as Altobelli flirting.

[quote]Jones was having a breakdown on the set of Ryan's Daughter in Ireland, distressing cast and crew.

[quote]He would sit staring off and then abruptly accuse a member of the film crew of stealing from him.

[quote]His attacks turned on Hussey, who was 17 at the time, in love and trying to understand her boyfriend.

[quote]One night while talking in bed, he punched her in the stomach and then held her close and apologized.

[quote]The production company decided to medicate him and it was up to Hussey to mix it in his morning oatmeal.

[quote]His mood swings calmed down on some days, other days he figured he was being poisoned because he felt too good.

[quote]Jones threw the bowl of oatmeal at Olivia, insisting she eat it and laughed ghoulishly before running off.

[quote]When filming was over, Hussey wanted nothing more to do with the actor and in 1969, she moved to Los Angeles.

[quote]First stop, Altobelli's home on the infamous Cielo Drive in Benedict Canyon, just north of Beverly Hills and the very site of the Charles Manson murder spree earlier that summer.

[quote]'The whole time I lived at Cielo Drive there was nothing strange or macabre about it. I was still very young, and by the time I arrived, all traces of the crime had been erased' – but for the fact that Altobelli had allowed Christopher to live in the back house temporarily. The ground rules were she would never be left alone with him and Jones understood they were no longer a couple.

[quote]Hussey was now caught up in the Hollywood scene of glamorous parties, and meeting big stars. The scene at Rudy's was also exciting with stars dropping by. Sally Kellerman, John Savage, Jack Nicholson even came to smoke a joint.

[quote]Olivia then began a short-lived affair with Terry Melcher, Doris Day's son, a record producer.

[quote]Rudy loved smoking dope and Olivia joined him becoming more paranoid throughout the day. Dino would join them and they'd head off to satisfy their munchies.

[quote]But then some dark sinister force brought Christopher Jones into her bedroom one night at Cielo Drive.

[…]

[quote]'Then he raped me'.

[…]

[quote]She called Dino whose first words were 'I'm going to have him killed'.

[…]

[quote]She didn't leave the Cielo Drive house for two months but Dino visited every day.

[quote]When she recovered, she went to the gynecologist who confirmed she was pregnant.

[quote]Conferring with Dino, Rudy, and a psychiatrist, Olivia decided to abort the baby.

[quote]While lying in a bed in Cedar-Sinai hospital before the abortion, when Dino left, Christopher walked in.

[quote]He apologized and pleaded with her to keep the baby.

[…]

[quote]Dino had been there to support Olivia throughout her ordeal and she fell in love with him.

[…]

[quote]They tied the knot in Vegas and Olivia was so into the marriage, she even learned to cook.

[quote]When Desi Jr. started dating Liza Minelli, she and Olivia became close friends as well as the godmother of Olivia's first child.

I've noticed that her daughter, India—like her mother—speaks with a slight English accent. I was under the impression that Olivia had lived in LA for decades, but this makes me wonder if she's gone back and forth between there and England, which would explain her daughter's accent. India was born in LA, but she definitely doesn't sound like a California girl, and I doubt she'd retain an English accent just because her mom spoke with one.
