The actress and the director recently gave the Wall Street Journal an interview that can be read in the magazines archive.

The movie “Julie & Julia” intertwines the stories of two women – Julia Child discovering her love of cooking and blogger Julie Powell cooking her way though Child’s “Mastering the Art of French Cooking.” The film’s star, Meryl Streep, and its writer and director, Nora Ephron, play off their links, too.
