The only time to eat diet food is while you’re waiting for the steak to cook
No matter what was going on behind the scenes or how many times the director or Sonya asked for retakes, Julia’s humor never failed her. Hers was such a quick wit; it was smart and natural, never corny, sarcastic or strained. She could ad-lib at the drop of a hat and define a situation or create an image with a few well-chosen words. In response to questions about her opinion of a low-fat diet, she retorted with such pithy statements as “You’ll get dandruff and your fingernails will fall out,” and “The only time to eat diet food is while you’re waiting for the steak to cook.”
Happy Birthday, Julia
And wherever you are, Bon Appetit!
