It's All Coming up Roses for Julia in Vanity Fair

It's All Coming up Roses for Julia in Vanity Fair

Between receiving awards and taking care of her family, Julia Roberts found the time to sit down with Vanity Fair for their upcoming December issue. The Charlie Wilson's War star dishes on celebrity and what she'd do if her kids wanted to act, dropping her baby weight, and how she knew her husband Danny Moder was the one. Here's more:

  • On her kids wanting to act: "I would call Natalie Portman's mother. Natalie is such a good actress, but she seems like such a sensible person. I asked her about it one day when we were doing Closer, and she said she only worked with people that her parents trusted, and she only worked when it didn't impact her school... I hope I don't face that, though, because I think kids should be kids and childhood should be filled with ... you know that smell, when your kids come in and they smell like dirt and sweat and sunshine? That's what I hope for my kids."
  • On being a celebrity: "We're all the same. Why can't we get on board with this? That we're all the same. Some have cooler jobs, some have less cool jobs, some have longer legs, some are nicer people, but we're all the same. We're all orbiting the same sun."
  • On marrying her husband: "It was, the most correct decision I've ever made in my life--not that it was even a decision, because it just overtakes you. My whole body knew."

It's been almost 20 years since Pretty Woman and we're still interested in this a-list actress's fun outlook on life. It sounds like Julia found her real life knight in shining armor with Danny and we can't wait to read the rest of her interview and see her gorgeous photoshoot in the magazine.

Julia needs to knock off that laugh,,,,,it's not like she looks cute when she laughed as she did in Pretty Woman, She lost her looks, she lost that youthfull face. Her face got wasted and she just looks OLD, When she plays off that laugh she looks and sounds like a witch !! I think Karma has paid her back for disrepecting marriages and Karma has kicked face bad. The rate she's aging she'll look like hell at 50 !!!!!!! Pay Back A Bitch Julia !!

I personally think your comments were "quite rude" you said: ________________ Who knew that Vera had such a dedicated pack of fans Did anyone care about Vera before they could use her as an opportunity to thrash Julia Roberts? Maybe Julia should just wear a big red A and retire from public life to appease her critics? ________________ a bunch of whining if you ask me and totally inappropriate wording describing someone who simply can see a home wrecker for what she is. You are the type that because someone says Angelina is a home wrecker, then we must be a bunch of Jennifer Aniston fans..unbelievable...so, if I were to criticize a murderer, then I must only be doing that because I'm a fan of the victim..right? PLEASSSE...don't talk about someone being rude when you were rude yourself being sarcastic and labeling people "a bunch of dedicated Vera fans" simply because we happen not to have thought it was cool for Julia to move in on a married man. That is still considered wrong by the way...I wonder how you would feel if your husband left you for someone else? Would you think it was wrong? Or would you be understanding and hail behind the woman like you do Julia? Just curious.

You've never seen a blond person with dark brows? In her childhood pictures I've seen, her hair was a lot lighter than her brows.Sorry that you can't communicate without insulting someone's intelligence. It's quite rude.

for pete's sake. Are you kidding me? First off, just because someone says something, doesn't make it true. She's not a blond and I think the dark brown UNDERARM hair she so proudly showed off, her very dark eye brows, clearly shows she's no blonde. Blonde doesn't even look right on her. Back in the 80's she had BROWN hair, back when everyone was going blonde, so Im sure she didn't dye it brown. Right after she did Pretty Woman she tried to pass off the red hair as her own saying she was lucky to have gotten it from her Irish Heritage, 2 yrs later it came out that the red hair was from a bottle. I'm no Vera fan, but I do know a b*tch when I see one and Julia is Def has been quite the B*TCH. How can you say that someone must be a fan of someone..aren't you intelligent enough to see when someone has been wronged and not have to be a FAN of theirs to know it?

Julia says her natural hair is dark blond. It's a quote, I didn't just speculate from photos.Who knew that Vera had such a dedicated pack of fans?! Did anyone care about Vera before they could use her as an opportunity to thrash Julia Roberts? Do any of these Vera fans know or care that she had a child in 2004? Clearly all parties IN the relationship have moved on. Do you all boycott Jerry Seinfeld shows and movies too, and his wife's new cookbook, since she was just back from her honeymoon when she met Jerry?Maybe Julia should just wear a big red A and retire from public life to appease her critics?

excuse me but I don't think ALL of hollywood does the EXACT same thing...even if it is a high precentage of divorce rates, that sure as heck doesn't make it right, and it does take a certain kind of person who would willingly go with a married man with no concern what so ever about what kind of pain they are getting ready to bring to his wife/partner. Just because he left his wife doesn't mean it wasn't working..it just means he was selfish and thinking about himself...surely he knew that marrying Julia would make it where he would never have to work again and it would open doors easily for his own career. If something better came along, it's no doubt in my mind he would leave her. Even having children now a days doesn't make a man stay with them..look at Shar Jackson..something richer and more famous came a long and BOOM Kevin was gone. NO everyone is not cheating and breaking up marriages, it's only the selfish, shallow people who are doing it.

I love her! People in the entertainment industry get divorced and remarried pretty much everyday. I love how people pick and choose who they want to hate for ruining a family when all of them did the same exact thing!If he was willing to leave his wife for her then their marriage wasnt working anyway.Anyway, I think she looks beautiful and it's great that she wants her children to be kids and have fun.

oh and her hair is naturally brown. Her hair was blondish as a child, but 75% of kids that have bonde hair as a child grow up to have it turn brown by the time they are about 10-12 yrs old.

I saw the photo and thought it was disgusting of her to do something like that since it was really obvious that Vera was in tremendous pain since Danny left her for Julia. Vera had said that during the movie shoot, Julia would call Danny at all hours of the night to "talk". Danny lied to Vera and said nothing was going on..when in fact..well, you know what happened. Vera said there was no problems in their marriage and that she had thought they were happy. Julia has been a flirt all her life and has taken guys from their girlfriends starting wayyy back. I'm from Charleston SC and back in the 80's when she was a nobody, she starred in a movie that was called "Satisfaction" starring Justine Bateman and it was filmed there. My best friend's brother had a bit part in the movie and said that "Julie" (as she was called on the set) was a complete WH*RE and slept with many guys during the time they shot the movie in Charleston and twice "Julie" said to watch out for jealous girlfriends coming to set and might try to start trouble, she would laugh and think it was hilarious, she thought of herself as the star of the show even though she had a small role. He said she was a little heavy then but really pretty and really flirty..she out shown Justin Bateman every where they went. Years later they re-named the movie to "Girls of Summer" and then had her name starring above Bateman's.

ginger the first pics came out in the British edition of Hello magazine I have that mag at home and she's holding a huge coofee cup, with tacky rings on her hnads, a hug smile on her face and a white t-shirt that say A Low Vera, and she's sitting outside of a cafe. It's there, I don't think so many people would make up a story about a T0shirt. Anyway i can't stand her she co-wrecked 3 marriages and yet she gets away with it. Oprah hates AJ yet she loves julia?? don't understand that.
