Every year, choosing a star to grace InStyle’s Sept issue is an extraordinary task, but this year’s selection had a special significance: Issue officially celebrates the magazine’s 20th anniversary.

Julia Roberts is InStyle’s September cover star, marking her sixth appearance on the magazine’s cover. “Over a year ago, I knew: There would be no one person that would better represent both the aspiration and accessibility of Hollywood glamour past, present, and future than Julia Roberts,” explains editor Ariel Foxman.

“Once she said yes to guest editing along with me, we were able to start shooting our issue!” Foxman sat down with the 46-year-old Roberts for an intimate lunch that turned into a three-hour event.

“We chatted first for about 20 minutes before the tape recorder even went on,” he says. “We talked a lot about the importance of The Normal Heart & then about 20 years of InStyle. I expressed how excited I am that she agreed to be on our cover of this marquee issue. She asked why. I likened it to when a director has a movie he wants to make but can only imagine one actress in its starring role—without her, the movie doesn’t quite make sense. That’s how I felt.”

Posing in a Louis Vuitton dress, belt, necklace, the Oscar-winning actress was photographed by Michelangelo Di Battista at a 6,000-square-foot Malibu estate. The inside portfolio features clothes by Prabal Gurung, Dries Van Noten (personal favorite of the star), and more. 

In the interview, she muses on everything from family, films & style to how Hollywood has changed since she started out over 20 years ago. In addition to the interview with her, inside the Sept issue—which is a hefty 708 pages-you’ll find resources on best new trends and how to wear them, the latest editor-tested beauty products & a tour of designer Lisa Perry’s N.Y.C. pad. Pick up the September issue of InStyle, on newsstands and available for digital download Friday, Aug. 15.

America’s sweetheart can still say she’s “just a girl!” Julia Roberts sat down with Matt Lauer for an interview that aired on the Today show Friday, Aug. 1. During the chat, the Oscar-winning actress opened up about her illustrious career, as well as her life with husband Danny Moder and their three young kids.

“Do they have a full understanding that they’re the children of Julia Roberts?” Lauer asked the world-famous star.

“I think they have a firm understanding that they are children of parents in show business,” Roberts, 46, replied, sharing an anecdote of how her kids, twins Hazel and Phinnaeus, 9, and Henry, 7, were recently upset they couldn’t see their mom star in Disney’s remake of Snow White.

“When Mirror Mirror came out, all of the kids in their class saw it and I wouldn’t let them see it,” she recalled. “So they felt that they were being penalized for being my children.” Roberts, who starred as the evil queen in the film, told her little ones, “Well, I’m not very pleasant in that movie. I don’t want to scare you.”

Roberts added how grateful she was to balance motherhood with acting, especially after having a long and successful career prior to becoming a mother. ” I’m really proud of what I’ve accomplished in my career,” the star reflected. “By [the time I had children] I felt I had really earned staying home with my kids and being with my family.”

She went on to share that the only time she’s left her family to work on a film was for August: Osage County – a role for which she received an Oscar nomination. “It was a decision that was very difficult to make,” she recalled, revealing that pal George Clooney and husband Moder “kept at me” to go for it.

While Roberts has starred in a slew of recent films including HBO’s The Normal HeartEat Pray Love, and Osage County, the star revealed that most fans cite 1990 smash rom-com Pretty Woman as their favorite Roberts film. “I kind of go, ‘Another decade, anything?’”

Lauer chimed in and said his favorite scene in the movie was not the memorable bathtub scene, but instead when Roberts’ character Vivian Ward goes shopping for her makeover. Smiling, Roberts recited what may be her most famous line in the film: “Big mistake, big mistake. Huge!”

Lauer then flashed the most poignant scene from her 1999 movie Notting Hill, which she again impressively recalled: “I’m just a girl standing in front of a boy. Asking him to love her.”

A year after that film, Roberts starred in Erin Brockovich in the title role, for which she won a Best Actress Oscar. Asked where the statue was, Roberts replied, “The Oscar is still in my sister’s apartment… I’m gonna go get it and take it home.”

She joked, “It can be Ken’s competition for Barbie’s affection.”
