Julie Andrews

Julie Andrews - MovieMonday.com

Julie Andrews was an immensely likable, if sometimes overly sweet, performer. Having played the role of Eliza Doolittle on Broadway in "My Fair Lady" she was shocked and disappointed when Audrey Hepburn got the role in the film.

Notable movies include: "Mary Poppins" for which she won the Best Actress Award, "10," and "Victor/Victoria." Her defining role was as Maria Von Trapp in "The Sound of Music."

She has been married for years, to film director Blake Edwards (The Pink Panther). Despite some effort, Julie Andrews was never convincingly naughty on camera, though on one occasion she did bare her breasts briefly, in her husband's film "S.O.B", which was a satirical jab at Hollywood money people and studios.

Julie Andrews' newest credits include "The Princess Diaries." More
