When Jack Warner was casting the movie My Fair Lady, Julie Andrews, who played the original Eliza Doolittle on Broadway, was overlook for the part, that was given to Audrey Hepburn.

That made her available to accept Mr. Disney’s invitation to play Mary Poppins.

At the 22nd Golden Globes, when she won the best actress award (she was up against Audrey for My Fair Lady), she had her sweet revenge.

how to shade, with class.

When you get this, post it publicly with 5 nice things about yourself and send it to 10 of your favorite followers! Stay strong, friend :-)

Thankfully, I’m the biggest narcissist this side of the internet, SOOOOO

1. I can recite the entirety of the animated musical hit “Anastasia”.

2. Selfie Game=Strong…too strong in fact. I don’t look like that in real life!

3. I pride myself on not having to go to a beauty salon. I love doing my nails, trim my own bangs, and only ever need to pluck my eyebrows. 

4. My dad was the inventor of Toaster Strudel. 

5. My hair is nice. It’s long and wavy and goddess like. It took me a long time to stop critiquing it and realize how beautiful it is. I’m now working on this kind of mentality with the rest of my body…check in soon.
