Just call it The Do-Good Wife.
Julianna Margulies and the cast and crew of The Good Wife teamed up with St. Bernard Project – a non-profit organization that helps disaster victims repair the extreme damage to their homes – donated $77,185 to the charity and rolled up their sleeves to do some hands–on work.
"All of us on the east coast remember that terrible day and the aftermath of its devastation," said Margulies, 47, standing with costars Chris Noth and Josh Charles outside of Sandy victim Margaret McNulty's home in Rockaway Park, N.Y., on Saturday. "One year later communities are still suffering."
McNulty's home, with the entire basement and first floor destroyed by Sandy flood waters, was just one of 6 homes the cast helped fix up that afternoon.

If anyone's been following the sex scandals of Anthony Weiner and Eliot Spitzer, it's Julianna Margulies.
The Emmy-winning actress's CBS show The Good Wife "ripped its title from the headlines when Silda Spitzer was standing right behind her husband" during the prostitution scandal, Margulies told PEOPLE on Tuesday.
With her character "loosely based" on Silda and other political wives who have stood by their husbands, Margulies says, "The headlines are now imitating us because both of these politicians – Spitzer and Weiner – have gotten back into the game of politics. And now newspapers are saying, 'Huma, take some advice from Alicia Florrick. Go back to work, don't read the papers.' "

Julianna Margulies waited 41 years to become a real-life good wife – and she’s savoring every minute of it.
"I feel very grateful that I had the courage to say no when I did and say yes when I could, that I waited to find the right mate and to have this little family," Margulies, now 46, tells Good Housekeeping in its May cover story. "There's something about this time in my life where I feel like it's never going to get better."
Margulies, who plays attorney Alicia Florrick on The Good Wife, married real-life lawyer Keith Lieberthal in 2007 while pregnant with their son Kieran, who was born two months later.

It was an A-list party for the A-listers!
On Sunday night, Al Pacino, Christopher Walken, Alan Arkin and Julianna Margulies celebrated their new film Stand Up Guys at The Oak Room in New York's Plaza Hotel.
"Al Pacino chatted with Christopher Walken, Alan Arkin and director Fisher Stevens as they sipped on cocktails," an onlooker tells PEOPLE.
It was a star-studded affair as Ben Stiller, Liev Schreiber, Matt Dillion, Jeremy Piven, Mariska Hargitay, Jon Bon Jovi, Alan Cumming, Girls' Zosia Mamet and Boardwalk Empire's Bobby Cannavale were all also in attendance.
After the screening at the Museum of Modern Art ended, guests enjoyed Appleton Estate cocktails, small bites of lobster claw, salmon tartar, mushroom crostinis and shrimp cocktails.

Actors commonly demur that filming a sex scene is just another day at the office, citing comforts like professional costars and respectful camera crews.
But for award-winning actress Julianna Margulies, the oral sex scene written for her and Chris Noth on The Good Wife elicited a much more dramatic (and, um, believable) response.
"The first thing that went through my mind is, 'Oh dear God, how are we going to film this?' Then, 'Oh God, my father's going to watch the show,' " the actress, 45, tells More in its April cover story.

All season long on The Good Wife, litigator Alicia Florrick's (Julianna Margulies) lingering feelings for law firm partner Will Gardner (Josh Charles) have taken a backseat to her separation from husband, re-elected state's attorney Peter Florrick (Chris Noth). And then there's the amazing revelation that her best friend, investigator Kalinda Sharma (Archie Panjabi), once slept with Peter.
So how will it all wrap up on Tuesday's second season finale?
"It's a really cool episode," Charles tells PEOPLE. "It felt really good to shoot the last one."

Julianna Margulies's husband, a New York lawyer, could be intimidated by the sheer number of Hollywood men his wife has kissed over the years. But, apparently, he's the good husband – and is cool with it.
"At dinner recently, a friend of mine went through the list of leading men I've kissed: Chris Noth, George Clooney, Pierce Brosnan, Aidan Quinn, Matthew McConaughey ... I realized I've been very lucky," Margulies, 44, tells Britain's You magazine.
"But my husband is very secure in himself. He knows he has nothing to worry about. To me, none of them compare to him – he's really rather yummy."

Don't call Julianna Margulies a good wife.
The actress, who plays long-suffering political wife Alicia Florrick on CBS's The Good Wife, says she finds depicting the staid character a stretch.
"It's a challenge because she's so far from who I am," Margulies, 44, says in the January issue of Harper's Bazaar, on sale Dec. 21. "I'm not saying I'm a crazy sexual person, but she's such a repressed Wasp."
