I was watching "Live with Regis & Kelly" this morning and they had Amy Adams on. She was in Enchanted and sang at the Oscars. She is a popular actress right now.
Anyway, she mentioned that she is working on a new film with Meryl Streep and it is called "Julie & Julia" - about a woman who cooks her way through "Mastering the Art of French Cooking" by Julia Child as a way to get through the depression of turning 30. As she cooks, she blogs.
Well, I knew all about Julie Powell and her story as I was one of many who read her blog - from the beginning to the very end.
I just bought her book at Barnes & Noble. It was in the bargain bin for $6.
Meryl Streep plays Julia Child! Amy is playing Julie.
Did anyone else read Julie's blog? Or read the book? Just wondering. I am so excited for Julie. This is so amazing that they commissioned her book and they are making it into a movie. With Streep it has to be good! I'll be looking forward to seeing it.
I am reading the book now. I'm so excited!
