Julia Roberts is no stranger to Hollywood – her radiant smile is enough to light up any room, and her energy on screen is always ebullient. The 44-year-old actress has a new movie coming out, Mirror Mirror, so it’s no wonder the stunning mother of 3 will be gracing the April issue of Vanity Fair.
Julia will co-star with Lily Collins and Armie Hammer in the film, which is a take from the classic tale of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. In the issue, Julia opens up about everything from her marriage, her work, her children, and fame.
When it comes to her kids and understanding whether their mom is famous, Julia said: “On a crowded street, and somebody noticed me, and then another person noticed. Somebody said as we were walking past, ‘Oh, that’s Julia Roberts.’ We all just kind of kept going, and then Finn said, ‘Yeah, my mom’s Julia Robinson.’ That’s what gives you perspective. It could be Robinson, it could be Johnson, because it has nothing to do with me as a person.”
Julia also expressed her concern with regards to the younger generation of Hollywood who seem to get away with everything these days in the public eye (I believe that)and how different her experiences were when she was that age.
“There’s the express elevator and there’s rehab, it’s so awful. Nobody gets a fair trial-and-error period that everybody deserves and everybody needs. The business is so different. You can never be that new girl who has that moment of, ‘Where’d she come from?’ “
It definitely must be interesting for a woman like Julia who has had a successful career in Hollywood. Whatever she has done to get where she is now, she’s done so with grace and dignity. I for one love her, and am banking on seeing her face around for many more years to come. If I were a young actress in the business about to break out, I’d say Julia’s a pretty rad person to emulate.
