Happy Birthday Laurence Kerr Olivier | 22 May 1907 – 11 July 1989
“Laurence Olivier swept me off my feet at one of those parties. A tremor ran through me when he took my hand and fixed those bottomless eyes on me. He actually sent shivers up my back - he’s one of the sexiest men I’ve ever met.”
We always used to celebrate together at the end of a picture. Clark insisted on it. Maybe we’d include the director, maybe not. It was just a kind of ritual that the two of us had. We would share a bottle of champagne while he read poetry to me, usually the sonnets of Shakespeare. He loved poetry, and read beautifully, with great sensitivity, but he wouldn’t dare let anyone else know it. He was afraid people would think him weak or effeminite and not the tough guy who liked to fish and hunt. I was the only one he trusted. He never wanted me to tell about this, and here I am giving him away, but I never mentioned it while he was alive.
