Julia Roberts

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Julia Roberts (born Julie Fiona Roberts on October 28, 1967, in Atlanta, Georgia, USA) is a movie star who shot to fame during the early 1990s after starring in the romantic comedy Pretty Woman opposite Richard Gere.

Since then, Roberts has gone on to become the highest-paid actress in the world with an asking price of over 20 million dollars.

Her impressive film career has also given her the title of most bankable actress in Hollywood, with box office receipts well over two billion dollars on the strength of numerous blockbusters such as Pretty Woman, Runaway Bride, and Ocean's Eleven.

Elvis Presley biography, Julia Roberts She won the Best Actress Academy Award in 2000 for her critically praised turn as the title character in Erin Brockovich after two previous nominations during the 1990s.

She was also placed at the pinnacle of the Ulmer Scale, a comprehensive guide to the global star power of actors and directors in independent and studio films created by James Ulmer, ahead of such other luminaries as Tom Cruise and Tom Hanks.

This was partly due to her ability to open a film based solely on her name above the title without the support of a male costar, a feat few other actresses, if any, have been able to duplicate.

Roberts is the first of three actresses (as of July 2005, the others are Cameron Diaz and Angelina Jolie) to join the coveted "$20 Million Club", when she signed to do Erin Brockovich for that amount.

Family background

Roberts' father, Walter, was a vacuum cleaner salesman, actor and writer. Her mother, Betty, was a church secretary and actress.

Her parents divorced when she was five, and her mother remarried. Her father died of cancer when Roberts was nine.

Her elder brother Eric Roberts, from whom she is estranged, is also an actor.

Roberts is of Irish and Cherokee Indian heritage on her father's side, and of German and Swedish descent on her mother's.

The mother of her maternal grandfather, Elin, moved from Sweden to the United States with her family in 1887.

Roberts wanted to be a veterinarian as a child, but soon after graduating from Smyrna's Campbell High School, she headed to New York to join her sister and pursue a career in acting. Once there she signed with Clicks modeling agency and enrolled in acting classes.


Julia Roberts made her film debut playing a supporting role opposite her brother, Eric, in Blood Red, which although completed in 1986 was not released until 1989.

Rail-thin, long-legged, and sporting a thick, curly mane of auburn hair, she looked more coltish than elegant in the movie.

Here, her large hazel eyes and large mouth are capable of much expression, sometimes radiance, when she cuts loose with her trademark megawatt smile and a braying laugh.

Roberts first caught the attention of moviegoers with her performance in the film Mystic Pizza in 1988.

The following year she was featured in Steel Magnolias as a young bride battling diabetes, garnering her first Oscar nomination (as Best Supporting Actress) for her performance.

She catapulted to worldwide fame when she co-starred with Richard Gere in the Cinderella story Pretty Woman in 1990.

The role also earned her a second Oscar nod, this time as Best Actress.

Her next box office success was the thriller Sleeping with the Enemy, playing a battered wife who escapes her demented husband and starts a new life in Iowa.

She played Tinkerbell in Steven Spielberg's Hook in 1991, which was followed by a two-year period of no acting roles other than a cameo appearance in Robert Altman's The Player (1992).

In early 1993, she was the subject of a People magazine cover story asking, "What Happened to Julia Roberts?"

Later that year, she co-starred with Denzel Washington in the successful The Pelican Brief, based on the John Grisham novel.

For the next few years, she starred in a series of films that were critical and commercial failures, primarily because she was cast in roles that strayed too far from her film persona.

She broke her losing streak with the hugely popular comedy My Best Friend's Wedding (1997), and eventually regained her earlier reputation as an actress who could open a movie and guarantee box office success.

In 2001, she won critical acclaim and finally received a Best Actress Oscar for her portrayal of Erin Brockovich, who helped wage a successful lawsuit against energy giant Pacific Gas & Electric.

Julia will appear in a broadway play starting in March 2006.

The play is called "Three Days of Rain".

Personal life

Roberts' personal life has often been in the spotlight, a fact that served as the basis of her (1999) film Notting Hill, a romantic comedy about a famous actress falling for an ordinary guy played by Hugh Grant. Her character, Anna Scott, was said to be closely modeled on Roberts herself.

(When asked in one scene how much she was paid to appear in a movie, Scott replies "fifteen million dollars"≈precisely the amount Roberts had received to appear in Notting Hill.)

Roberts was engaged to actor Kiefer Sutherland in 1991 but ended the relationship just days before the wedding. Julia ran off to Europe with Jason Patric, and the two were eventually a couple after she and Kiefer broke up.

She later eloped with country and western singer Lyle Lovett shortly after meeting him.

The ceremony was noted by her being barefoot. They divorced in 1995, ostensibly due to their respective career demands keeping them apart, but they still remain friends. Julia also briefly dated Friends star Matthew Perry and Daniel Day-Lewis.

For a time she lived with actor Liam Neeson and dated Benjamin Bratt from 1998 to 2001.

Roberts met her husband, cameraman Danny Moder, on the set of her movie The Mexican in 2000.

He was already married to Vera Steimberg Moder, but they eventually divorced. Julia and Danny were married on July 4, 2002, in Taos, New Mexico.

They became the parents of oddly-named twins, Hazel Patricia Moder and Phinnaeus Walter Moder on November 28, 2004.

Roberts bought a penthouse in Manhattan's Gramercy Park neighborhood.

She reportedly loves to shop anonymously, buying her own organic greens on weekends at the market in nearby Union Square.

She splits her time between her homes in New York, New York, Venice, California, Malibu, California, and a 50-acre (202,000 m╡) retreat in Taos, New Mexico.

She is reportedly a fan of the long-running soap opera Days of our Lives.

Roberts has a production company called Red Om Films ("Moder" spelled backwards; formerly "Shoelace Productions") and has given of her time and resources to UNICEF as well as to other charitable organizations.

She has made trips to Haiti, India, and other countries promoting peace, goodwill, and help for others in need.

She has been named a record setting eight times as one of the "50 Most Beautiful People in the World" by People magazine.
