Nora Ephron Quote Finished Cross Stitch Pattern-What She Said Stitches

Nora Ephron was a director, producer, and writer, and you probably know her as the screenwriter of movies like When Harry Met SallySleepless in Seattle, and Julie & Julia. She started her writing career as a reporter at the New York Post. While married to Carl Bernstein (yes, that Carl Bernstein), she helped rewrite the screenplay for All the President’s Men. Her script wasn’t used, but it got Ephron her first screenwriting gig.

Nora Ephron PortraitEphron’s marriage to Bernstein also meant that she knew the true identity of Deep Throat, Woodward and Bernstein’s confidential source on the Watergate scandal. It was Mark Felt. She told anyone who asked that it was Mark Felt. Nobody believed her, and when Felt himself came forward in 2005, everyone was amazed that Deep Throat was Mark Felt. (If you’re a man, the fact that she was not believed may shock you. If you’re a woman, not so much.)

Ephron’s writing has also resulted in lawsuit threats from both her ex-husband Bernstein and Women’s Wear Daily, which is an achievement in and of itself. And while delivering a commencement speech at her alma mater Wellesley College in 1996, Ephron urged graduates to “Above all, be the heroine of your life, not the victim.”
