A woman who pretended to be Hollywood legends Dame Julie Andrews, Humphrey Bogart and Dorothy Parker is confessing all in a new book.

Lee Israel spent two years writing forgeries from her New York apartment and selling them to autograph dealers around the country.

In forthcoming release Can You Ever Forgive Me?, Israel confesses to forging more than 500 letters.

And she has no regrets about ripping off autograph dealers: "Those letters never misrepresented any large truth. They were fun, and nobody got hurt, and everybody made money."
