Julie Andrews Opens Up About Walking In On An ‘Adorable’ Fake Orgy In Surprising ‘Ellen’ Appearance

Dame Julie Andrews is one of humanity’s greatest accomplishments.

Brilliant actress, flawless singer, a ray of sunshine in a world gone mad—and think about it, who else more perfectly rocks a pixie cut?

And who else could do so for decades?

No one, that’s who. It’s simply not possible!

We just flat-out do not deserve her. 

But even with all that perfection, every now and again Andrews goes on the ol’ telly and serves us even more reason to love her. And her recent appearance on The Ellen Show is just one such appearance.

Dame Julie stopped by the Ellen studio to chat about her New York Times Bestseller, Home Work: A Memoir of My Hollywood Years, and Ellen wanted to know about one thing: the sorts of wild Hollywood parties Andrews must have attended back in the swingin’ 60s and 70s.

She demurred about the parties, but she did open up about something far more, um… interesting—walking into a staged orgy.

Which, in true Julie Andrews form, she called “adorable,” bless her.

It all happened during production of her late husband Blake Edwards’ celebrated romcom 10, in which there is a scene where Dame Julie’s character spies her boyfriend, the film’s main character played by Dudley Moore, engaging in an orgy with the neighbors.

Edwards couldn’t believe what he was seeing and called Dame Julie to come over right away to bear witness. 

“He said, ‘Julie, you’ve just got to come on over here. It’s an unbelievable sight.’ So I went dashing over, of course I did.”

Who wouldn’t‽ 

Andrews then went on to describe the scene as only she can. 

“And what Blake had done was hire an awful lot of people who really are very at ease doing orgy films, I guess! And I walked in and everybody was stark naked and lying around very happily and casually, treating it totally normally.”

Who thought we one day would get to hear dignified Fraulein Maria talking so candidly about an orgy‽

Andrews went on to describe how diminutive Dudley Moore fit into this whole thing:

“And there was sweet Dudley in the middle of it all, and you know, he wasn’t very, very tall. And Blake put him between two enormously statuesque ladies. So he was completely naked, and these two ladies were naked, but their bums were up here and little Dudley’s was down there. So sweet… It was more adorable than anything else, because Dudley was so adorable.”

“Sweet” and “adorable”: a description of an orgy only Julie Andrews could pull off.

As you might guess, folks on the internet were absolutely delighted by this whole thing.

And for some, the moment just underlined what a rare treasure Julie Andrews truly is.

Same, Caroline, same…

 

Never leave us, Dame Julie.
