Julie Andrews Pens Open Letter Urging Trump Not to Cut Arts Funding: 'This is Mind-Boggling'

Julie Andrews is speaking out to voice her frustration with President Donald Trump‘s 2018 budget proposal for America.

The 81-year-old actress (along with tons of other celebs) is not happy with the massive budget cuts to arts programs to increase spending in military and homeland security.

“This is mind-boggling to us, considering how much the arts benefit our lives and our world,” Julie and her daughter Emma Hamilton wrote in an an op-ed column for CNN on Thursday (March 16). “They foster collaboration and creativity, essential skills for navigating in the workplace and surviving in a challenging world.”

“They cultivate empathy and tolerance, by bridging cultural and socioeconomic divides,” they went on. “They’re also good for business: They spur urban renewal, promote tourism and generate hundreds of billions of dollars in economic activity annually.”

Julie has heard from countless people over the decades who believe their lives were enriched by the inspiration, comfort and sense of connection they received from the music, stories, films and productions in which she was fortunate enough to participate,” they added.

'Princess Diaries 3' Update: 'There's Talk About It'

Last year, there was talk of Princess Diaries 3 happening with the original cast (Anne Hathaway and Julie Andrews) returning under the helm of original director Garry Marshall.

Garry tragically passed away back in July.

Now, months later, Julie is giving an update on the project.

“There’s talk about it. And [Anne]’s very keen to do it. I would very willingly and happily do it,” Julie told BuzzFeed.

“I think we might do it in honor of him. Annie had an idea that she wanted to pursue about it, and I’m all for it, so if she’d like to…,” Julie said on honoring the late director.

Julie did also add that it is very early, and since movies take a long time to make, it won’t be happening soon.
