Hey everyone! Julia has received a Golden Globe nomination for Duplicity – BEST PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTRESS IN A MOTION PICTURE – COMEDY OR MUSICAL. Congrats Julia! We hope you win!
The Oscar winner has locked lips with a string of hunky co-stars, including Richard Gere in Pretty Woman, Hugh Grant in Notting Hill and George Clooney in Oceans Eleven. However, the married mother-of-three insists she loathes faking real affection, and relies on camera trickery to escape kissing her onscreen love interests.
Roberts tells Us Weekly, “I try to avoid it at every turn. I’ve kissed through sheets; I’ve come up with every trick in the book, because I just think it’s bizarre.”
London (ANI): Talk show host David Letterman, known for leaving the guests dumbfounded with his witty questions, was at a loss of words when Hollywood actress Julia Roberts planted a kiss on his lips.
Julia, who was sporting pink locks, kissed Letterman, who was fast to lean over to her in a bid to reciprocate to the gesture. However, while talking on the show, the Pretty Woman actress said that she did not like doing intimate scenes in her flicks, as she was a mother of three kids.
“You know it’s not really what I do, so if you are going to ask me to do it, you have to expect it to be toned down,” the Sun quoted her as sa
‘Closer’ co-stars Julia Roberts and Clive Owen reunite on the big screen this month for ‘Duplicity,’ a romantic screwball caper comedy in which they play fast-talking spies turned corporate operatives who team up to try to con two rival titans of industry out of million upon millions of dollars — and perhaps fall in love along the way.
The film, writer-director Tony Gilroy’s impressive and assured follow-up to ‘Michael Clayton,’ boasts plentiful plot twists, the Gatling-gun dialogue of a Bogey-Bacall flick and — most importantly — Roberts’ first true lead role since 2003′s ‘Mona Lisa Smile.’
Moviefone sat down with Roberts and a small panel of journalists for a relaxed but revealing chat about the film — and ended up unearthing quite a few fun facts in the process. From why she and Clive have such great on-screen chemistry to what it takes to be invited into her kitchen to why she’d rather eat the world’s biggest, greasiest slab of meat than read a gossip magazine, here are eight things we learned about Julia Roberts. – By Tom DiChiara
1. Playing venomous lovers in ‘Closer’ actually did make Julia and Clive closer.
Michelle Obama has nothing on Julia Roberts.
On the Monday after the Oscars, there was the elusive actress, in a fitted black blazer, jeans and rippling locks, with all the presence of a polished but approachable politician, pressing palms and personally greeting each member of the Hollywood Foreign Press Assn. — that idiosyncratic group that bestows the Golden Globes — in a conference room of the Four Seasons Hotel. The line to speak with her was long, its denizens frequently shabby and odd and gushing, but Roberts did not flag, dutifully raining that glorious, improbable smile on every grateful scribe and posing for a memorializing photo.
She then disappeared, and returned with her hair upswept, sporting a green, summery linen top. She did a quick photo shoot (as the great “Slumdog Millionaire” actor Irrfan Khan, a hotel guest, stopped by and introduced himself) and retreated for this interview into an almost furniture-less meeting room. She perched on the only couch, eventually slinging one leg up in that idiosyncratic, long-legged recline, often seen in her movies and magazine spreads.
Unlike her married peers (Brangelina or TomKat), Roberts and husband Danny Moder have maintained a distinctly more selective media presence, and the Oscar-winning actress has emerged from her cocoon only to discuss her new film, “Duplicity” — the first movie she’s actually top-lined since 2003 — which opens Friday.
Julia Roberts is chopping off her trademark long locks to play a real-life ‘cougar’ on the prowl for love.
The Oscar winner has bought the rights to Liz Gilbert’s book Eat, Prey, Love: One Woman’s Search for Everything Across Italy, India and Indonesia and plans to play the author in a movie adaptation.
The writer spent a year looking for love on a trek around the world, following a messy divorce and a failed romance, and chronicled her exploits.
Gilbert tasted the cultural delights in Italy, stayed in an ashram in India and completed her trip in Bali.
The book has become a must-read for middle-aged women keen to embark on more rewarding lives – and Roberts can’t wait to get started, even if her friends are begging her to rethink the haircut.
She tells Wenn, “I will be the lead character Liz Gilbert. I’ll cut my hair, even though everyone says that it’s the kiss of death for me, apparently.”
