Julia Roberts

“You can be true to the character all you want, but you've go to go home with yourself.”

 

Biography

Born during the late ‘60s, Georgia native Julia Roberts was raised in a fervently pro-theater environment. Her parents regularly hosted acting and writing workshops, and both of the Roberts children (Julia and her brother Eric) showed an interest in the performing arts at an early age. Ironically enough, Eric was the first to break into film; in 1978, one year after their father died of lung cancer at 47, Eric Roberts starred in director Frank Pierson’s psychological drama King of the Gypsies. Though her older brother would go on to have a solid acting career, it was, of course, Julia Roberts who earned a spot among Hollywood’s elite.

The biggest reason to dislike Julia Roberts? It's not her weird lips that look like they're pressed against a window- nor is it her gigantic, constantly flaring, nostrils.

She's a moviestar, first and foremost, for good and for bad - not an actress.
