Julie Andrews's Granddaughter Defends Nude Pics

30 July 2001 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Dame Julie Andrews's granddaughter Kayti Edwards has defended her decision to pose nude as Mary Poppins for Hustler - she did it because she needed the money. And Kayti, who is the granddaughter of Andrews's director husband Blake Edwards and was brought up by Edwards and Andrews, says she wouldn't have had to do the shoot if her grandparents had helped her out of her debts. Kayti, who received $10,000 for her sexy shoot as her grandmother's most famous character, says, "I'm a single mother. I'm studying to be a trauma nurse and I needed the money to finish university. If Julie and my grandfather had wanted to pay off my student loan, I wouldn't have done it. If Julie had forbidden me to do the pictures, I'd have replied, 'Give me $10,000 and I won't do them.'" Kayti, who got into trouble as a teenager, running away from her grandparents' home and breaking into their house to steal their cars, took up with a drug dealer at 19 and had his daughter Shaely. She accuses Andrews, said to be appalled at the photoshoot, of hypocrisy since she went topless in the movie S.O.B., but adds that Julie has always been a generous and loving grandmother who brought her up better than her own mother. Kayti adds, "I think the photoshoot will affect her a little bit, but she won't stop talking to me. She won't stop loving me either. I am sure that Julie will always love me. If she can't, then that's pretty shallow." »

Julie Andrews Has Poppins Flashbacks

23 July 2001 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Julie Andrews's experience filming The Princess Diaries didn't just bring back Mary Poppins memories because it reunited her with Disney. According to an interview with The Los Angeles Times, there was also a series of almost spooky coincidences. First, director Garry Marshall lives in the house Andrews lived in while shooting Mary Poppins. Said Andrews, "he took me over there the other day. I walked around and remembered it and reminisced." In addition, some scenes for The Princess Diaries were shot on the same soundstage as Poppins. "I mean, a sound stage looks the same when it's empty and different when it's full," Andrews explained. "But there's a plaque on the door that says that Mary Poppins was filmed on this stage. And that took me back a little." »

Julie Andrew's Sound Of Shame

21 May 2001 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Julie Andrews' wildchild granddaughter is behaving the opposite to her clean cut grandmother. Julie made her name playing caring governesses in The Sound Of Music and Mary Poppins - yet her granddaughter is dragging the name into the porn industry. Kayti Edwards first went off the rails at 18 when she could be regularly be seen stripping in dingy Dallas bars, but now she is set to appear in Larry Flynt's infamous Hustler magazine in some very revealing shots. To make matters worse, the pictures, which are set to appear in America's October edition, are to be heavily promoted via Julie's name. A friend says, "Julie is very upset at Kayti's decision to pose nude, to put it mildly. She has always been a wild girl, but this has pushed the tolerance of the family to breaking point. »
