Vivien Leigh taking a smoking break to decompress behind the scenes of Gone With The Wind…most people don’t know that the grueling shoots led to her having mental health issues on set
For audiences, Vivien’s Leigh’s performance as Scarlett O’Hara in Gone with the Wind is one of the greatest achievements in film history, but for Leigh it was an extremely grueling shoot where she had to put up with American actors questioning why she was there, and she was dealing with her own mental health issues while on set.
