Happy 77th Birthday, Julie Andrews
↳ (October 1 1935 - )
She’s one of the finest people in the business, I think, that I’ve been able to work with and get to know. But contrary to popular opinion, she’s got a ribald sense of humor. She’s very funny herself. She enjoys a raucous laugh. She’s a tremendously committed, hardworking professional, and she’s got such grace and dignity about her — just her personhood. But I don’t find her in any way treacly or saccharine. She’s definitely a woman of manners, but not in any way that’s offensively on the saccharine side. She just embodies a kind of grace and elegance and civility, and that’s not how you would describe most people in show business.
