tarquin olivier  
While it's safe to say Vivien Leigh's daughter did not get lucky with her mom's pretty gene, Tarquin Olivier looks (looked? I'm pretty sure he's still alive) just like his dad, as seen here at his wedding when he was 29. Awwww, he's cute!

Tarquin had a crush on Judy Garland when he was about 4 and living in Hollywood with his mom during the war. In his book about his dad, he writes about the first time he met his new step-mom, Vivien Leigh. She and Larry were visiting him and Jill or something along those lines, and they were sitting on his bed chatting. Then when it was time for Tarquin to go to bed, he said "I want to kiss Bibbs." (Bibbs was one of Larry's nicknames for Viv). So Viv walked back over and kissed him on the forehead. Then Tarquin said "On the mouth," and she and Larry got a bit embarassed. HAHA! kids. he grew up having a pretty big crush on her.

Aw that's so cute! I love how he had a crush on Judy Garland (it makes me happy when my favorite people are connected in some way). I read once that Judy was a guest at Notley Abbey once. It made me smile :)

Great picture! And he is still very much alive and still looking like his father.
