Because Of Course She Is
Oh damn. Julie Andrews is just like us.
She Can't Not Be Perfect
During an interview with "AM To DM," Andrews says she likes to drop some F-bombs occasionally, or whatever swear she chooses to use.
"Once in a while, yes. I'm only practically perfect in every way!" she said in the interview.
A Storied Life
Andrews is promoting her new book, a memoir called "Home Work," which she co-wrote with Emma Walton Hamilton, her daughter. "Home Work" covers Andrews time in Mary Poppins, her marriage to Blake Edwards, and other adventures.
The Mom Everyone Wants
Walton Hamilton says it was Andrews' cursing that helped fuel her first book, which she wrote in the 1970s.
"We were not keeping our rooms clean or doing our chores, and she said, 'Ok here's a game: keep your rooms clean or do your chores, and win a prize or pay a forfeit."
"And my stepsister said, 'You have to play too,' and she (Andrews) said, 'What do I have to do?' And my stepsister said, 'You have to stop swearing!"
You're Totally Forgiven
Andrews took that memory in stride, saying she hadn't even noticed her dirty mouth.
"I hadn't realized that I had been! I, of course, lost immediately."
During her interview on "AM To DM," Andrews did not show off her portfolio of curses, instead saying: "I think I'll let people be surprised in the moment, so to speak. If I don't feel it, it won't come out."
Julie Andrews Can Say Whatever She Wants
Andrews says that part of her life, working in Hollywood and raising kids, was so busy that she couldn't have written a book like "Home Work" at the time:
"It was such a busy life, and until you write about it you don't have time to think about it because you're so busy doing it and surviving in any given moment, whether it's hard, hard work on a film set, taking the children, as every mother does, to the PTA meeting."
