Personal Quote:

[on her book "You'll Never Eat Lunch in This Town Again" in People magazine] I'm just being honest. I didn't write the book to get back in the business. I had to accept the fact that I wasn't in the business before I wrote the book.


Julia Phillips was the first woman to win an Academy Award for Best Picture (for The Sting (1973) in 1974). She was the only female winner until 1989, when she was joined by Lili Fini Zanuck (who won for Driving Miss Daisy (1989)). See more »
