It seems that Julie Andrews has a thing for cursing. The legendary movie star and surrogate nanny to generations of fans appeared on The Happy Days of Garry Marshall special to talk about her work with the late filmmaker. During one segment, she spoke about how much she cursed whenever she'd flub a take.
Andrews, who worked with the late Garry Marshall on the 2001 modern-day fantasy The Princess Diaries, was among many of his family, friends and former collaborators who put the project together in November of 2019. Others included Andrews' co-star Anne Hathaway, Pretty Woman actress Julia Roberts and Happy Days' Henry Winkler. While there's been plenty of heartfelt reactions to the ABC special, it was Andrews' frankness about her colorful use of language on set that caught the attention of some viewers. As well as providing a good laugh.
Stories of Andrews' penchant for profanity aren't exactly a secret. She's spoken about it before and she even lost a bet with her stepdaughter about it, which resulted in her writing her second children's book, Mandy. Still, it managed to catch a few viewers off-guard.

After watching the heartwarming tribute to #garymarshall I really want a curse-off between Julie Andrews and Judi Dench while they enjoy tea. It would be practically perfect in every way.— Social Distancing Queen 👑 (@medievalnicona) May 13, 2020
Julie Andrews conviently forgetting that she swears and Anne Hathaway saying “receipts”.— Taylor (@justanoutlawfic) May 13, 2020
One takeaway from the Garry Marshall special is that Julie Andrews swears. I love her even more now. For fuck’s sake.— Jonquil Cary “Let’s Go!” (@jonquilcary) May 13, 2020
