Julie Andrews: Her Marriages
Andrews was married twice. Her first husband made her very depressed when the marriage ended.
Sadly, I separated from my lovely first husband,” Andrews, 84, she told The Late Show with Stephen Colbert in October. “And separations were always inevitable and the marriage was over and my head was so full of clutter and garbage. Believe it or not, it was Mike Nichols who really tipped me into wanting to go to therapy.”
“[Mike] had been, and he was so sane and funny and clear,” recalled Andrews. “He had a clarity that I admired so much. I wanted that for myself. And I didn’t feel I had it, so I went and got into it and it saved my life, in a way.”
Andrews married director Blake Edwards in 1969. They were together until his death in 2010.

Andrews spoke about her late second husband, Blake Edwards.
She told Good Morning Britain in 2015, “We were married 41 years and it was a love story, it was. Success in our marriage was to take it one day at a time and so, lo and behold, 41 years later there we still were.”
She added, “I’m still dealing with [his death],” she said. “There are days when it’s perfectly wonderful and I am myself and then it’s suddenly—sock you in the middle of your gut and you think ‘ah God I wish he were here."

“Nothing is wasted, is for sure,” she cautioned. “There were days when I was in vaudeville, and I’d be endlessly touring around England in really tacky productions,. . . and wondering, ‘What on earth good was this going to do me?’”
“But, suddenly, I’m doing Mary Poppins on film . . . and I thought, ‘Oh, how lucky I did all of that.’ Nothing’s wasted,” she repeated. “It’s going to come in use for you at some point in your life.”
