Julie Andrews raciest moments – leg-buckling sex scene, baring boobs and orgy

Julie Andrews might not be the first person you think of when it comes to sexy movie moments.

The Hollywood star, who shot to fame in feel-good films like Mary Poppins and The Sound of Music, is best known for her angelic singing voice and stern yet fair persona.

But across her iconic career, Julie hasn’t been afraid to delve into her sexier side – even going as far as baring her boobs in one unearthed film role.

She’s attempted to shed the skins of Mary Poppins and Maria Von Trapp at various points along her lustrous Hollywood career – sometimes in rather unexpected ways.

To celebrate her 86th birthday, Daily Star takes a look back at her sauciest ever moments – from her ‘leg-buckling’ sex scenes to going topless.

Boob baring

Julie has spoken out in the past about her experience with typecasting, especially as good-natured yet stern characters.

Speaking back in 1981 to The Philadelphia Inquirer, she admitted: "The typing was caused by a number of things. The public played some part. But the studios sometimes insist on casting you for successful types that have made money.

"I rejected many films, because I put my family first. I still put it first. Others I rejected because I didn’t want to play the same role again and again."

But her biggest career shake-up came in the form of a comedy film written and directed by her own husband, Blake Edwards.

That film was S.O.B., a satire of the film industry in which a film director experiences a major career flop, and decides to cast a squeaky clean movie star in a soft-porn role.

And that squeaky clean actress, irony of ironies, was Julie Andrews.

She played Sally Miles in the film, and was tasked with ripping down her stunning red dress to reveal her boobs in an ultimately shocking moment.

Speaking on TV about the role, Julie admitted: "At first when Blake suggested I do that upper torso shot, I believe I said, ‘Oh, yes?’.

"But after one lives with the idea for 10 years, one gets used to it. When the moment of truth came, it really was not difficult at all. There was a closed set. It was very quiet.

"Just the crew, and they had seen everything before so they weren’t very interested. Blake may have felt that it was about time I was emancipated," she added.

The star admitted to The Chicago Tribune that it was a "daring" move, admitting: "That made it so enjoyable. But more than that, I loved doing S.O.B., because the film is important to Blake."

Julie has also said in the past: "I think if I worried terribly about my image, it would be very foolish. I would constantly be doing things like Mary Poppins and I’d never grow or I’d never expand or sort of stretch my talents.

"And so I think it would be rather dumb to just stay in one place."

Legs buckled during sex scene

Julie Andrews has spoken out about her first ever love scene in anti-war flick The Americanization of Emily back in 1964, in which she played the eponymous Emily Barham alongside Hollywood icon James Garner.

The A-lister admitted she had "no idea" what to do when making love – but admitted that James, who she got to share a snog with, was "delicious".

Recalling the scene, she admitted she was "terrified" ahead of filming, confessing: "I had no idea what one was supposed to do with a kiss and all of that.

"James Garner, who was delicious, made it very easy for me. I began to think, ‘It’s getting a little hot in here’.

"And when I got up, I kept thinking, ‘I can manage this’. And I got up and my legs buckled, because it really had hit me rather hard."

She continued: "But he was lovely about it. And I think he might have enjoyed it too!"

Fascinated by orgy scene

Julie had plenty of input in her husband’s own film directing career – and admitted she was intrigued by watching a fake orgy scene during filming the 1979 flick 10.

Blake Edwards had directed the movie, which featured Julie as Samantha Taylor and Dudley Moore as George Webber.

Speaking on The Ellen DeGeneres show, Julie admitted: "There was one party that was actually manufactured for the movie 10. I think my character in 10 had to look through a telescope and see that my boyfriend, the sweet Dudley Moore, was, in fact, invading a neighbour’s house where they were having an orgy.

"There was a day when Blake was shooting the orgy and he said, ‘Julie, you just got to come on over here. It is an unbelievable sight.’ So I went dashing over, of course, I did," she said.

The actress continued: "I walked in and everyone was stark naked and lying around, very happily and casually, treating it totally normally.

"And there was sweet Dudley in the middle of it all and he wasn’t very, very tall. Blake put him between two enormously statuesque ladies and so he was completely naked and these two ladies were naked, but their bums were up here and little Dudley’s was down there. So sweet!"

She quipped: "It was more adorable than anything else because Dudley was so adorable!"

Catholic criticism

Julie didn’t escape criticism from the Catholic church, either.

Her film Torn Curtain, in which she featured alongside actor Paul Newman, was thought to be completely unacceptable by members of the National Roman Catholic Office for Motion Pictures.

What began as the church’s Legion of Decency until 1965 viewed the flick – in which the two unmarried main characters appear in bed together – as "morally objectionable in part for all" for its "gratuitous introduction of premarital sex between its sympathetic protagonists".

The board also hit out at the "detailed treatment of a realistically brutal killing" being "questionable on moral grounds".

It concluded: "Parents should be aware that the 'Mary Poppins' image of the female lead (Julie Andrews), shattered in this film, cannot serve as any criterion of the film's acceptability for their children."
