The magazine quotes Jones as saying of Powell's blog, "She didn't want to endorse it. What came through on the blog was somebody who was doing it almost for the sake of a stunt ... Julia didn't like what she called 'the flimsies.' She didn't suffer fools, if you know what I mean."
We caught up with Jones at her Vermont home and she elaborated, which she tells us is the last time she'll speak about the blog (though she promises a review of the movie is forthcoming at her own blog).
