Julie Andrews is this year’s recipient of the American Film Institute’s Life Achievement Award. The star of Mary Poppins and The Sound of Music says because of those roles, many of her fans have a certain image of her. “They think I am this very squeaky clean, upper class lady that came from such a family — and it’s so far from the truth.” She’ll tell us about growing up part of a vaudeville family, surviving the blitz during WWII, and we’ll hear about why she’s no longer physically capable of singing.
