David here with a bit of golden Hollywood news you may have missed and definitely need to know about.
Two-time Best Actress winner and third-oldest Oscar nominee still living, Olivia de Havilland is understandably rarely seen in public. So we must send our precious thanks to satirical British magazine The Oldie, who honoured Olivia in their annual awards as one of their 'Oldies of the Year' and managed to elicit both a photograph, signed letter and a recorded thank you from the star, which was played at their ceremony this Tuesday and can be heard over on the BBC website.
In the letter, she made note of her early withdrawl from public life:
I must admit that I have not had much time recently to reflect on what it means to be old. I was fortunate to have been able to enjoy a retirement experience somewhat earlier than most.
Olivia turns 100 in July and what a joy it is to get a rare glimpse of her and how well she looks! TFE will certainly be marking her centenary in some way come the summer - is there anything you'd like to see?
