Julie Andrews may be best known for her family movies, but she’s certainly got a more adult streak to her.
Appearing on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” on Wednesday, the “Mary Poppins” star recalls witnessing a fake orgy for a scene in her 1979 film “10”, directed by husband Blake Edwards.
“He said, ‘Julie, you’ve just gotta come on over here, it’s an unbelievable sight,'” Andrews recalls her husband saying. “So I went dashing over. Of course, I did.”
The 84-year-old adds, “What Blake had done was hire an awful lot of people who really are very at ease doing orgy films, I guess.”
Andrews also recalls her co-star Dudley Moore being in the middle of the scene.
“I walked in and everyone was stark naked and lying around, very happily and casually, treating it totally normally. And there was sweet Dudley in the middle of it all and he wasn’t very, very tall,” she says. “Blake put him between two enormously statuesque ladies and 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.”
She then adds, “It was more adorable than anything else because Dudley was so adorable.”
Later in the interview, DeGeneres asks Andrews a series of personal, revealing questions. Among them is, what is her favourite swear word and when did she last say it?
“My favourite swear word? God, I’ve got so many. What am I going to do?” Andrews responds, before finally settling on the S-word.
