Transcript for Julie Andrews recommends what you can watch while stuck at home
She has starred in so many of our favorite movies that are perfect to watch right now as we look for comfort. So please welcome as Amy just said, the one and only Julie Andrews live from her home. Always a privilege to have you on our show. You're looking so well. Tell us, how are you doing? How are you and your family We're just fine, thank you. We're being very good and we're observing all the rules and we're bonding as much as possible, and emailing and skyping and phoning and generally taking great care. Thank you. Taking great care and staying in touch with each other. So many of your classic movies are available on Disney plus. "Sound of music" and "Princess diaries" all on Disney plus. What would you recommend and what would be the one you pick? I would say if you could find it, just any one of those might be just -- just fine, and there's just so much out there. I'm sure there are reruns going on all over the place somewhere. I know I'm watching a lot of rerun stuff. Yeah, I think, Julie we might have time for all of them these days. That's what I vote. You also have a children's series. Thank you so much. That would be great. Yeah. "Julie's green room" is what it's called. Tell us about that series. It was a series that I made for Netflix, and if anybody wants to find it, it's on juliesgreenroom.com. They can find our activities and watch all the reruns, and it's for children and adults, and moms and dads and grandmas. It's all about the arts. I love that, and you and your daughter, Emma, are also launching a podcast right now for families called "Julie's library." I know you have grandchildren of your own. Can you give us advice? For those of us that have children at home, and some have grandchildren at home. What can we be doing with them? Oh, I think a lot. The podcast I hope which is being fast-tracked for this spring's release, I hope it will be something that the whole family can listen to. It will engage children, and I mean, this is the sort of thing that there's just so much out there at the moment, and people are being so wonderful and bonding. This is so much, to me, like World War II in a way. I'm very much reminded of that because I was around at that time, believe it or not, and the sense of unity that it provides, and the way people do bond and get together is just phenomenal. And Julie, people of all ages feel like they grew up with you. You really are a source of comfort for so many of us. Thank you. Is there a message you want to share with everyone in these strange times we're living in right now? Yes. Of course, I do. I would love to -- of course, I send my fondest love to everyone, and stay safe. Follow the rules. Be compassionate and kind if you can, which I just was talking about. I think everybody is. Keep in touch. Reach out when you find a way, the way you can keep touch which is what I'm doing as much as possible. Well, we love the fact of all those things. All those things are important to each and every one of us. I'm curious. As you quarantine yourself at home, what are some of the favorite things for you to watch, for you to eat, for you to do? What are you doing with your time? Well, I overeat I'm afraid. A lot of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches going on at this house, and cups of tea, but what am I watching? Mostly of course, at the moment for myself I'm watching governor Cuomo who I think is being phenomenal, and sane and great for us all, and watching the news mostly, but reruns and anything else I can get my hands it's a strange, strange time. And then the other thing I'm doing is working with my daughter on the podcast, on writing a new children's book. So many things. I'm in touch also with the thing I promote all the time, a wonderful relief agency which is now going full tilt into obviously masks and gloves and gowns and anything that they can manage to help others. It's a very organization. Operation usa. And you're always thinking of others, miss Andrews. One final request. Can we just hear you say, a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down. As only you can say it. Please? Robin, anything like that? Of course. A spoonful of peanut butter helps the medicine go down in this house. I love it. Perfect. I love it. Fantastic. Well done. Thank you for making us feel better. It's crazy outside. Julie Andrews, such a pleasure. Yes. Already feel better today. Thank you. Take care of yourselves and good luck. Thank you for all that you do. I mean, you're our lifesavers at the moment. We appreciate that. Thank you so much. Thank you very much.
