Julie Andrews is one of the most respected actresses out there. The 82-year-old has had a career spanning decades.

Julie is best known for her roles in Mary Poppins and The Sound of Music. These films barely hit the tip of the iceberg when it comes to this incredible woman, though.

While filming The Sound of Music in 1964, Julie struck up a friendship with her co-star Christopher Plummer, who played Capt. Georg von Trapp. Since the film’s release in 1965, Julie and Christopher have remained close.

In 2015, the two stars sat down with Vanity Fair to talk about their half-century-long friendship. When the reporter asked about their friendship, Julie quipped, “What do you mean, friendship?”

During the interview, Christopher mentioned that he was hungry, and Julie immediately responded, “Oh, honeybun, that’s terrible!”

The hit film wasn’t their only project together. The pair also co-starred in a live TV production of On Golden Pond in 2001 and toured together for a stage show called A Royal Christmas.

Although they never pursued a romantic relationship, Vanity Fair aptly describes them as “an old married couple.” Their friendship was almost instant, and to this day they both remember their time filming fondly. “You were the glue that bonded us all together,” Julie told Christopher during the same interview.
