Julia Roberts Talks Motherhood, Marriage and More


Julia Roberts Talks Motherhood, Marriage and More
The 50-year-old actress opens up about life as a Hollywood mother.

Having turned fifty last weekend, Julia Roberts took the time to reflect on her role as mother, wife and actress. The star has been married to husband Danny Moder for 15 years, and the pair have two children who are turning 13 later this month.

Roberts says her family loves a ‘normal’ day. “Our ideal days are kind of our typical days,” The Daily Mail reports. Discussing her partner and their children, she said: “The thing is, we have these human beings who are just a complete reflection of the affection we have for each other.”

When it comes to kids, Roberts is proud as punch. “The cliches are true,” she says. “I’m so proud of them but also… I tried to carry somebody up to bed the other night, and it was just …All right, you’re gonna have to get on your feet and sleepwalk because I just can’t get up the stairs.”

So what does Roberts do in her spare time? “I truly love cooking,” she admits. “One of my favourite things about Thanksgiving is you can just spend days cooking. You aren’t obligated to do anything else. I think I got that from [my mother] and learned by being in the kitchen with her, watching her do it.”

The actress, who says her 50th birthday is “nothing different [to] any other one”, will produce and star in a new television show, Homecoming, in 2018. The show is “a total experiment”, she confesses, pointing out that she “doesn’t even know what it really requires. I just know how to watch a TV show. I don’t know how to make one.”

The mother of two also stars in the film Wonder, which hits cinemas mid-November.
