Julie is of mixed ancestry; her father, Don, a German-American, was the head of the Physical Education Department at Los Angeles City College, while her mother, Helen, was half Swedish and half French, and a fashion designer. Since her early days, Julie studied dance, piano and classical ballet. She attended the John Marshal High School, from which she matriculated at 15 years of age – she has an I.Q. of 135. After high school she took a trip to Europe with her mother and brother, and upon return she enrolled at the UCLA, where she studied classical piano, philosophy and French.

Julie`s career began in the early 1950s, with roles in “Slaves Of Babylon” (1953) followed by the role as Dorcas in “Seven Brides For Seven Brothers” (1954). Before the 1950s ended she also appeared in “The Rookie” (1959), as Lili Marlene, and in the film “Li`l Abner” (1959), in the role of Stupefyin` Jones.

In the 1960s, Julie continued successfully, as she was selected for quite a number of notable roles, including as Katrin Sveg in “The Marriage-Go-Round” (1961), as Bonnie Brasher in “For Love Or Money” (1963) with Kirk Douglas and Mitzi Gaynor, “My Living Doll” (1964-1965) as Rhoda Miller, and as Catwoman in “Batman” (1965-1966), with Adam West as Batman. She was then cast in the film “The Maltese Bippy” (1969), with Dan Rowan and Dick Martin as leads. In the 1970s, her popularity faded, and she managed to secure only a few film roles, such as in “A Very Missing Person” (1972), “Fools, Females And Fun” (1974), and “Terraces” (1977), while other credits include one-time appearances in several TV series, in “Columbo” (1973), “The Wide World Of Mystery” (1975), and “The Bionic Woman” (1976), among others.

Her career continued with decline, but she landed roles in low-budget films such as “Hysterical” (1983), “High School U.S.A (1984), “Evils Of The Night” (1985), “Deep Space” (1988), and “Dance Academy” (1988). Before the 1980s ended, Julie appeared in the film “Ghosts Can`t Do It” (1989) with Bo Derek and Don Murray in lead roles, which was a complete disaster, receiving four Razzie Awards.

The next decade didn`t change much for Julie, as her career continued its free fall, with roles in such films as “Nudity Required” (1990), “Oblivion” (1994), and its sequel “Oblivion 2: Backlash” (1996), and “If… Dog… Rabbit” (1999).

In the 2000s, she didn`t much appear on TV; in 2006 she had a cameo appearance as herself in “According To Jim”, and she voiced Catwoman in the Batman video game “Batman: Arkham Knight” (2015), and will voice Catwoman again in the animated film “Batman: Return Of The Caped Crusaders”, once more with Adam West.

Julie also had an noted career on stage, which began with the part in “Silk Stockings” (1955), and continued successfully with parts in plays “Li`l Abner” (1956) and “The Marriage-Go-Round” (1958). Throughout her career, Julie continued to work in theatres and Broadway, and appeared in such productions as “Damn Yankees” (1961), “Stop The World- I Want To Get Off” (1963), “In The Boom Boom Room” (1982), among others, which only increased her net worth.

Regarding her personal life, Julie was married to J. Holt Smith from 1977 until 1984; the couple had a son together, who unfortunately was born with a hearing impairment and Down’s syndrome.

2 Is the eldest of three children of Donald Charles and Helen Newmeyer.
3 Gave birth to her only child at age 47, a son John Jewl Smith in February 1981. Child's father is her ex-husband J. Holt Smith.
4 Good friends with Batman (1966) cast: Adam West, Frank Gorshin, Eartha Kitt, Lee Meriwether and Yvonne Craig.
5 Best known by the public for her role as Catwoman on the television series Batman (1966).
6 Having originated the character on the 1960s television series Batman (1966), Newmar accepted the Worst Picture award at the 25th Annual Razzie Awards on behalf of the Halle Berry remake of Catwoman (2004).
7 Newmar was visiting her brother at his college in New York when she was first contacted with the offer to play Catwoman on Batman (1966). A group of her brother's friends were regular watchers of the series and after consultation convinced her to take the role.
8 Has appeared in episodes of two science fiction series with Sid Haig: Jason of Star Command (1978) and Buck Rogers in the 25th Century (1979).
9 She is one of only seven actors to have played "Special Guest Villains" in Batman (1966) who are still alive, the others being John Astin, Joan Collins, Glynis Johns, Barbara Rush, Dina Merrill and Zsa Zsa Gabor.
10 Julie Newmar played in New York City with Hildegard Knef in the musical "Silk Stockings".
11 Won the 1959 Tony Award (New York City) for Supporting or Features Actress in a Drama for "The Marriage-Go-Round".
12 Was the first actress to portray the DC comics character Catwoman in a live-action adaptation of the Batman series.
13 Was friends with New York Mets pitcher Tracy Stallard, the man who as a member of the Boston Red Sox gave up Roger Maris' record-breaking 61st home run in 1961.
14 Her son, John Jewl Smith, has a hearing impairment and Down's Syndrome.
15 In November 2004, the former "Catwoman" had a different type of catfight on her hands. Her next-door neighbor, actor Jim Belushi, sued her for $4 million alleging harassment and defamation of character. Their openly hostile neighborhood feud has been supposedly going on for years. Newmar, an avid community advocate who once fought restrictions against noisy leaf-blowers, once threw an egg at Belushi's house in retaliation for a noisy air conditioner. The suit includes vandalism and spying.
16 Has her name mentioned in the title of the comedy To Wong Foo Thanks for Everything, Julie Newmar (1995), while the plot revolves, partly, around an autographed publicity photograph of her.

20 I.Q. of 135. Graduated from John Marshall High School in Los Angeles at age 15.

1 I've had a curious relationship with my doctors. On one hand, they haven't made much money off of me over the past few decades. But then they tell me to "keep up the good work", and so I do.
2 Whenever I'm stopped on the street, men tell, "Ms. Newmar, did you know that you were my first turn-on?... How old were you?".
3 On seeing a Catwoman tattoo: I've seen some interesting flesh... It wasn't just the Catwoman. It was me.
4 On Catwoman fans: It's an honor -- it really is -- that something stays for so long with people in the sweet depths of their feelings.
5 (July 2008) Today, I walk - but very slowly. My balance is also affected. People might think I've had too much to drink, but I never drank, smoked or took drugs my entire life. If I'm out in public, I grab on to some charming, darling fellow who can steady me. I've been encouraged by the many men who have offered me their shoulders.
6 [interview in Star Trek Magazine, #1, September/October 2006] Star Trek (1966) -- oh my goodness, what a following that show has! I get asked about it all the time, and I receive lots of fan mail from it, even though I only did one episode.
7 It was so wonderful being on Batman (1966) because you could be nasty and mean, and in the '50s, women could never -- unless you were some 'B' picture actress -- be mean, bad and nasty. It was so satisfying; I can't tell you how satisfying it was.
8 [on how she got her most famous role, Catwoman on Batman (1966)] I had lived in New York at the time on Beekman Place. I remember it was a weekend, Friday or Saturday, and my brother had come down from Harvard with five or six of his friends, and we were all sitting around the sofa, just chatting away, when the phone rang. I got up and answered it, and it was this agent or someone in Hollywood, who said, "Miss Newmar, would you like to play Catwoman on the Batman series? They are casting it out here." I was insulted because he said, "It starts Monday." I said, "What is this?" That's how television is done: they never know what they are doing until yesterday. Well, my brother leaped off the sofa. I mean he physically levitated and said, "Batman! That's the favorite show at Harvard. We all quit our classes and quit our studies and run into the TV room and watch this show." I said, "They want me to play Catwoman." He said, "Do it!" So I said, "Okay, I'll do it.".
9 Tell me I'm beautiful, it's nothing. Tell me I'm intellectual - I know it. Tell me I'm funny and it's the greatest compliment in the world anyone could give me.
10 I'm magnificent! I'm 5' 11" and I weigh 135 pounds, and I look like a racehorse.
