Check out these two posters forMirror, Mirror featuring Lily Collins and Julia Roberts! The 44-year-old actress takes on the role of the Evil Queen, something she initially was hesitant to do.
“I was like, this is a terrible idea. I was against it a thousand percent,” Julia told Extra. “[But] I’m such a fan of [director] Tarsem[Singh] and fell so under his spell! It was pretty fun,” she explained.
Julia also shared she felt “awful” with how her character treated co-star Lily, who plays Snow White.
“I was terrible. I think I might’ve slapped her once for no reason! Just because she’s pretty!” Julia joked.
Mirror, Mirror also stars Armie Hammer and Nathan Lane and hits theaters March 16!
Cue that laugh: Julia Roberts will return to comedy once again, this time as both star and producer of an upcoming feature from New Regency. The production company confirmed to EW that the Oscar winner will pull double duty on the project, which she’ll produce alongside Trudie Styler, Lisa Gillan, and Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas. The film, which does not have a director or writer on board yet, will be about a woman (Roberts) who is forced to head into the working world despite never having held a job before in her life. In other words, a bit of a stretch for Roberts, who is as busy as ever and will soon be seen in the other Snow White movie, Mirror, Mirror.

Here is what Julia Roberts had to say about Viola Davis in ‘The Help’
“To say Viola Davis is brilliant is to say running a marathon is difficult. It is simply something we all know. Now, I have never run a full marathon, but I have worked alongside Viola and I can tell you it is incredible. She is masterful. She is fierce. She is a little bit scary — in the most complimentary way! Her attention to detail and reason is impeccable. To sit face to face with that stunning face is heavenly. Playing closest friends was a dream and a joy. ‘The Help’ is a book I quite enjoyed and I was only sure of Viola’s brilliance as Aibileen. I knew she would be masterful and detailed. I didn’t realize the depth of the river she would call the audience upon — to float and submerge, to nearly drown in the pain of her brown seen-it-all-too-closely eyes. Viola actually vanished. Only Aibileen remained. Only her quest existed for those moments. The devotion to her charge. The steadfast faith in her god, her prayers. When she speaks of her son’s death and the feelings that overtake her each year on the anniversary of his accident, I didn’t realize my hand was to my mouth until I put it down in relief that she has kept going, has found a way to carry on in the face of such a loss. Viola’s portrayal of Aibileen is so human, so fully realized that you feel like you could reach out and hold her hand. Beautiful. The definition of the word ‘viola’ is a stringed instrument that resembles a violin but is larger and deeper in tone. As an actor, she — Viola Davis — stands alongside us all with resemblance, but so much larger and deeper in tone. Indeed.”
