In what could very well be one of the best "chick flicks" of all time, Julia plays Vivian Ward, a Los Angeles prostitute who becomes enamored with businessman Edward Lewis (played by Richard Gere). Julia manages to make the role of a Hollywood harlot come across as irresistibly lovable as she's romanced by this wealthy—and unlikely—suitor. And who can forget the famous Rodeo Drive shopping spree scene? When she utters the line, "You work on commission right? Big mistake," we're reminded of why we've always loved this Cinderella fairytale.
