My digs were awful, and I was around fun people and it was a release from being a child.

"It's a really beautiful story about love and death, with a lovely message about how you can want something that doesn't necessarily happen yet still have no regrets about your life."

And how right she was, for just as quickly as big-time success arrived, the backlash came.The New York Times ran a piece titled 'The Conception, Production and Distribution of Julia Ormond', which implied that Julia had somehow connived in creating her rapid celebrity out of nowhere (an angle that all but ignored her successful ten-year career on the British stage and screen).With masses of chestnut hair falling about her shoulders, and enviably slim despite her unfussy attitude to food (she orders fish and chips), she still has the questioning, dark-eyed looks that initially captivated the critics.

Suddenly she was faced with criticism for no other reason than that the critics felt it was about due.
