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.

Leigh's role as O'Hara became her calling card, but it was also a role that she couldn't escape. She was terrified of typecasting or of having to continue to play Southern Belles simply because that's what she became known for. She once said:

I think typecasting is one of the menaces, really, because you get used to what someone is going to do and then it holds no surprise for you.

Cher is not someone that you mess with. Not today and especially not in the '60s. As a performer, whether she was singing or acting, Cher always realized that she was looked down by the press and seen as a flash in the pan - even if that flash has lasted for decades at this point.

While speaking about her so-called "trashy" lifestyle, Cher noted that there's been a bevy of "trashy" women since the dawn of Hollywood who did just fine for themselves, but for some reason she's always singled out as a problem. She told Film Comment:

There’ve been lots of trashy vamps who’ve been really good actresses. I mean there’s been lots of trashy people. Marilyn Monroe was a great actress; she was a real trashy woman… How about Mae West? How about Heddy Lamar? How about Ava Gardner? How about all kinds of actresses who lived a life that makes me look like f*cking Mary Poppins, you know?
