In a nod to life’s ironies, actress Julianna Margulies told Ellen Degeneres that the day she received her copy of Architectural Digest featuring her New York City apartment, she returned from vacation to find the snazzy apartment flooded.
Margulies said and husband Keith Lieberthal and son Kieran, who turns 6 Friday, were returning from a skiing vacation the day the February cover story on her NYC apartment came out.

“We remodeled and I was excited,” Margulies said on "Ellen."
But it wasn’t a good day, in general. The family had a difficult 30-hour trip getting back to New York because of storms and, then, when they arrived, their luggage was lost.
“The whole time I kept saying to my son, ‘We have our health. It's OK. Everything’s fine; we have our health,’” the actress told DeGeneres. “Then we walked into our brand new apartment with this [holds up magazine], it was in the mail, and everything was flooded. The whole place had completely flooded from the guy upstairs.”
A radiator in the apartment over Margulies’ broke and spilled water through the ceiling, Margulies said.
Margulies kept a good attitude about the disaster. “At least we had pictures,” she told Ellen, although later in the interview she admitted that she did open the door “and burst into tears. At which point, my son said, ‘Mama, we have our health.’”
Margulies was on "Ellen" to talk about her fifth year on the award-winning “The Good Wife” television show. While there, she also shared the secret she uses to survive walking the red carpet.
“I was given a trick that has helped me tremendously walking down with the photographers because we’re actors, not models. I think it was Robert DiNiro who told this to someone who told this to someone ... when you’re in front of the cameras, if you hum a song, somehow it just makes you happy and you always smile,” Margulies said, and then demonstrated for the audience.
