Julia writes on Slavery and appears in Corduroy

An article by Julia on Slavery and Supply Chain:

I initially engaged around the issue of trafficking and slavery when I was shocked and spurred into action by reports of sex trafficking. Nothing seemed to me more heinous than the repeated rape and violence its victims endured. Although the first victims that I met were California-based, other travels around the world, to Russia, Ghana, Thailand, Cambodia, India and Europe, painted a wider perspective of how slavery pervades my own life. People often ask me, "Where is it worst?" My answer is, "in my home." In other words, products tainted by slave labor are present in the supply chains of the goods that we purchase, consume, and rely on every day.

You can read the complete article at the following link:

She'll also be in the issue 8 of Corduroy magazine.

We photographed the beautiful and talented Julia Ormond during our trip to L.A. last month. Ormond, perhaps best known for her roles in films like Legends of the Fall and Sabrina, was in a celebratory mood when we saw her, after recently winning an Emmy Award for her supporting role in the HBO movie Temple Grandin. The joy and her passion for performance was evident throughout the photoshoot, as she effortlessly segued from one gorgeous look (and one gorgeous outfit) to the next.

Julia's good deeds and Emmy nom

The following link describes an event that Julia attended for Emmy nominees.

Here's the Julia bit:

Julia Ormond, nominated for supporting actress in a miniseries for her role in "Temple Grandin," still has some red carpet concerns.

"Obviously there's a big thing with trying to get the dress," she said. "I'm not a size zero, so it's always, let's just find one where we can get everything into."

Being nominated is "amazing," she said: "To be put in a category of women and other actresses that I really respect, it's been really validating."

Julia and fellow nominees on Prop 8 which I understand is a big issue in the States.

The Wronged Man review

Here is Lettie's review of The Wronged Man:

At the weekend I watched for the first time Julia Ormond's new film 'The Wronged Man'. The story, based on real life events, revolves around a man wrongly convicted for the rape of a child and imprisoned for over twenty years for a crime that he did not commit. Julia Ormond plays the paralegal who fights to secure his release. I felt that there were echoes of 'Smilla's Feeling for Snow' in the film. Ormond was once again playing a character in pursuit of justice with the odds stacked against her. Ormond, as always, played her role with integrity and depth. However, I felt that the film was a little superficial. It failed to go into much detail about the legal process which eventually freed her client. The film concentrated more on the personal relationship between the paralegal and her client and the way that it impacted on their families and personal lives. This is not a bad thing but I felt that the film would have had more depth with more detail about the legal issues involved, eg, The Innocence Project. 'The Wronged Man' is not Ormond's best film but it is a huge improvement on some of her recent roles in 'Surveillance' and 'I know who killed me' - those films did not deserve her. I should also add that it will be a relief to the fans that she has more than five minutes screen time which has not been the case in some of her past productions.

Julia on LA news show

Thanks again to S.

On Sunday morning, Julia appeared on a local news show called "Eyewitness Newsmakers" as part of a table discussion of human trafficking. Video can be found here:

The Wronged Man review

Jo sent in her comments on The Wronged Man:

Watched "The Wronged Man" tonight. Ms Ormond was spectacular. A good, meaty role for her — and a Southern to boot (she carried it off quite believably and that's not easy). Looks like the movie will be repeated a number of times. It was on here twice on Sunday — 5pm and 9pm — and the same schedule's set for Monday. It's certainly worth a 2nd viewing!!

Why not add your own reviews in the comments box.

Julia's appearance on The Bonnie Hunt Show

Thanks to S for sending in their detailed report about Julia's apperance on The Bonnie Hunt Show. Thanks for taking the time to write it up!

Today (Thursday) I attended the taping for Julia's appearance on The Bonnie Hunt Show. The show is scheduled to air on Friday. The taping took place at the Culver Studios in Culver City. Julia was the first guest and she sat down with one leg tucked under her. She wore a black button-down shirt with short sleeves and jeans. At the start of the show, Bonnie had been discussing the many plastic surgeries of Heidi Montag (I really hope that she's not known in the U.K.) [Jack: Well, for what it's worth I don't know who she is!] and about women and their issues with their appearances. So when Julia sat down, Bonnie continued to discuss those themes. Julia said something about how people blame men for these problems, but it's women who place pressure on themselves.

Bonnie asked her about her childhood and her daughter. Julia said that she was a tomboy and appearances weren't really emphasized. She said that her daughter wasn't really a girly girl, but she did have her "spangly moments" and she had her long hair cut off. She also said that her daughter was uninterested in what her mother does for a living.

At some point, there was some static problem or something with Julia's mike and it looked as though they might have to stop for a bit to handle that. Julia looked to the audience and said, "Talk amongst yourselves." Well, it turned out that there was no problem and the interview continued.

Then Julia talked about her movie and discussed the Innocence Project. They showed a clip from the movie, and when they show the clips on the monitors, they dim the lights at the front of the stage, so I didn't catch Julia's reaction. She must have had a negative reaction to seeing herself onscreen, because when the lights came up again, Bonnie made some comment about Julia's reaction. Julia said something about cringing when she sees herself onscreen. She then made a reference to some scene from the movie Julie & Julia when Julia Child and her sister were looking at themselves in the mirror before leaving somewhere.

The taping ran long, and I don't know how they will they edit the program for the broadcast.

I forgot to mention the part when Bonnie asked Julia about her first job in showbiz. Julia said that she was cast in a cottage cheese commercial because of her ability to make her eyes roll in different directions. The commercial was supposed to have pineapple chunks flying out from the cottage cheese and she was supposed to look at the pineapple parts going all over the place. However, that idea was rejected and she still got to do the commercial. Then she did a demonstration of her eyes darting in different directions.

And an update from R about what was cut out:

The interview felt edited but apparently *a lot* was left out. The only material that stayed on air was Julia making her introductory remarks about plastic surgery, a few sentences about the movie and the clip and her first job and the eye-rolling bit. Everything else about her daughter, the Innocence Project, watching herself on-screen wast cut out. Very nice report you got there. Julia also made a joke about being 57 and Hunt creduously asked her of that was true. It was kinda shocking.. lol
