Julie Andrews Tells Stephen Colbert Therapy 'Saved' Her Life!

Julie Andrews Tells Stephen Colbert Therapy 'Saved' Her Life!

Julie Andrews took a trip down memory lane when discussing her new memoir, “Home Work: A Memoir of My Hollywood Years,” on last night’s (October 21) episode of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert!

The Oscar, Grammy and Tony winner opened up about how director Mike Nichols inspired her to seek out therapy following her heartbreaking divorce from Tony Walton in 1967.

“Sadly, I separated from my lovely first husband,” Andrews told host Stephen Colbert. “And separations were always inevitable and the marriage was over and my head was so full of clutter and garbage. Believe it or not, it was Mike Nichols who really tipped me into wanting to go to therapy.”

“He was so sane, and funny and clear,” Julie continued. “He had a clarity that I admired so much. I wanted that for myself. And I didn’t feel I had it, so I went and got into it and it saved my life, in a way.”

“The truth is, Stephen, why not?” Julie concluded as the audience applauded. “If it helps anybody else have the same idea.”
