The Real Julie Powell

11 Aug

The Real Julie Powell

If you’ve seen the movie or are planning to see the movie, then you’re probably wondering who the real Julie Powell (played by Amy Adams) is. Did her blog really exist? Did she really gain many followers? And did her blog “The Julie/Julia Project” actually become the top blog on salon.com? The answer to that is: Yes, she did.

Julie Powell’s old blog “Julie/Julia Project”: http://blogs.salon.com/0001399/

There aren’t many posts in the blog because I’m guessing that she deleted them or made them private, but if you want to know about her past adventures, then you can buy her book and/or see the movie.

However, once you read the book and/or see the movie, then you’ll love reading her new blog. (Yup! Once a blogger, always a blogger). Instead of using Salon.com, Julie Powell uses Blogger.com. (I just switched from Blogger and must say that I liked my move. WordPress had more oranization with the tags and categories, something that’s good for my pictures and recipes. But anyways,), she calls her blog “What Could Happen?” And truly, anything could happen right now. From a small blog to a book and now a movie, Julie Powell is in a good part of her life right now.

Julie Powell’s Personality

Julie said in an interview that Amy Adams is a ‘nicer’ version of her. She also mentioned that she does drop swear words every now and then in her book and blog.

    i just watched the movie now i want to watch the movie. I want to do what julie powell did in the movie. I want to go threw the cook book of julia childs as julie powell did. I also want to know if julie powell realy did go threw the hole book in one year? If anyone knows the truth pleas blog back to me. if i knew julie powell and she really did cook all the recipes that julia childs made. I would think that she was the most craziest and best person in the world.

    I also just watched “Julie & Julia”. Picked a night my boyfriend was working, cause I knew he wouldn’t be interested. I absolutely loved the movie!! I took out my cookbook and wondered what to make for dinner tomorrow. It is as inspiring and passionate as the film “Chocolat”!!! Will be looking out for Julie’s real cookbook next week!

    I just met Julie Powell last night at a party. Bought her new book and had a few chats with her. She was such a great person, and I must say…I enjoy real Julie Powell over Amy Adams impersonation. If you ever have a chance to go to a book signing, I highly suggest you do just so you can see what she’s really like.
