Say What? Nora Ephron on Marriage


"The desire to get married, which — I regret to say, I believe is basic and primal in women — is followed almost immediately by an equally basic and primal urge — which is to be single again."

Julie and Julia director Nora Ephron explains her views on marriage. Her new film is based on the memoir by Julie Powell and tells the story of a woman who cooked and blogged her way through Julia Child's classic Mastering the Art of French Cooking. Julie and Julia stars Meryl Streep as the magnificent Julia Child and opens in theaters this Friday.

Who can blame her for that quote. When she was pregnant with their second child, her hubbie was having an affair with a friend of theirs.

This is the second Nora Ephron quote on Tres Sugar that I've read today. The other is a post from yesterday about Nora saying never trust a man who cries. Huh? Why generalize about women, men, marriage and relationships in a way that only reinforces tired old stereotypes i.e. men can't cry/women have a basic desire to get married. Maybe we just shouldn't listen to people who reduce women and men to stereotypes. What does marriage have to do with the movie? Granted I haven't seen it yet but I read Julie and Julia and I don't see how this even factors in.

Ahhh Nora! She cracks me up. Makes me think of her bio-pic Heartburn about her marriage to Watergate journalist Carl Bernstein.
