The Great Julie Andrews Is Writing Another Memoir

Illustration for article titled The Great Julie Andrews Is Writing Another Memoir

A few years ago, Julie Andrews released Home, a memoir of her early years; now she's set to write another, covering—yes—the years she played Mary Poppins and Maria Von Trapp.

The LA Times reports that Andrews' latest book will span the period from the 60s to the 90s, which covers quite a bit of ground—The Sound of Music and Mary Poppins, but also Victor Victoria and my favorite movie that nobody remembers, Torn Curtain, a Hitchcock thriller costarring Paul Newman in which they're lovers who defect to the Soviet Union except it's really a spying mission. Maybe she'll take the opportunity to break free of her wholesome image and share some salacious stories (you know the gal's got a few):

Andrews, who was made a dame in 2000, is beloved for her roles in those movies. "I do have a very squeaky-clean image," she recently told Alec Baldwin on his "Here's the Thing" podcast. "That's simply because, if you think about it, Alec, here's 'Mary Poppins,' followed pretty quickly by 'The Sound of Music,' two hugely iconic films about nannies."


The book is scheduled to hit stores in 2017.
