We’ll talk more about scary movies tomorrow (keep ’em coming!), but those who know me or read this blog know that I absolutely can’t resist any excuse to mention the great Julie Andrews. She was given an award last night at Elle magazine’s Women in Hollywood tribute, and she was of course gracious and funny and practically perfect in every way.
On working with her husband (Blake Edwards): She described how once when he was directing her during a love scene, he told her, “That was just fine, darling, but I know you can do it better.”
On being nervous at the podium, even after all these years: “I’m wondering if you can see through my gown,” she said. “I’m wearing a Spanx and pop socks and God forbid you happen to see all that.”
(No, I don’t know what pop socks are. But if the great Dame Julie is wearing them, they’re OK.)
