I know what you're thinking. Yes, this youthful angel is 80. EIGHTY. E-I-G-H-T-Y.

She's gifted us with some of the most iconic characters and quotes of all time, and she's always been ridiculously classy while doing it.


Seriously – you try saying supercalifragilisticexpialidocious backwards and remain as classy as Julie Andrews. Oh, that's right, you can't.

Not only has she brought to life some of the best songs in musical history...

...but she's a perfect dancer, too. Because she's Julie Andrews, and she can do literally anything that she puts her mind to.

Like when she won an Oscar for her first movie role, like it was totally nbd.

Not to mention it was only her fifth acting role. EVER.

And because an Oscar wasn't enough for Queen Julie, she also has an Emmy.

Which she won for a show about herself. Because obviously.

And it's not just her classic roles that are totally iconic. Queen Clarisse Renaldi, anyone?

...she's also shown that she can totally pull off the androgynous look, in Victor Victoria.


This is in no way fair.

And she rocks a hat (and major sass) like no other.


Even Lady Gaga knows to bow down to her.
