She got SLAMMED TO THE GROUND by a helicopter.
So Julie Andrews stopped by The Tonight Show on Friday, and she told a ~rather insane~ story about how they shot this famous scene from The Sound of Music:
20th Century Fox
The story involves a young Julie Andrews repeatedly getting slammed to the ground by a helicopter and, well, you should really just watch the video because it’s Julie Freaking Andrews and she’s perfect:
“And every time the helicopter finished, it went around me — but the downdraft from the jet engines just flung me into the grass. And so we did this about six or seven times, and I was spitting dirt and hay and things like that.”
But seriously, watch the video. Cuz it’s way more charming and magical the way she tells it.
