Movie producer Julia Phillips, who made Hollywood history as the first woman to win a best picture Oscar--for The Sting in 1973--and who became a showbiz outcast 20 years later with her tell-all-and-then-some autobiography, You'll Never Eat Lunch in This Town Again, died Tuesday at her West Hollywood, Calif., home. She was 57. She had been diagnosed with cancer in August. Among her later writing credits was an essay on Hollywood power lesbians for Harper's Bazaar. The Los Angeles Times quotes Phillips as saying she wrote that piece because she liked "any outlaw group that makes themselves apparent." Services for Phillips will be private.
