As a fulltime stay-at-home mom for the past year, Julia Roberts says life outside the Hollywood spotlight has been anything but uneventful – thanks to her three children.
“I will never be bored again,”] Julia, 41, told Allure for its March issue.
“Danny and I talk about, ‘What did we do with all the time we must have had?’ ” she said. “Because you don’t recognize it as such, until you have all these little … time thieves running around your house.”
Julia shared that due to her children – twins Hazel and Phinnaeus, 4, and another son, Henry, 20 months – she has become creative in using home remedies when it comes to removing a splinter.
“We get a lot of splinters in our house,” said Julia.
“A splinter is just a good light, a pair of tweezers and a lot of singing songs and passing the time: La-la-la, now listen, if you eat all of your dinner It’s distraction and extraction.”
The domesic Julia admitted that her life at home is a juggling act, and while “it can lose its luster a little bit,” the key to her happy marriage and family is affection.
“The coolest thing you can do for your children is to love each other in their presence,” she said. “I’m the luckiest girl in town, I really am.”
On the key to beauty Julia shared the following:
The key to beauty is always to be looking at someone who loves you, really. One of my favorite things about my children right now, even Henry, who can’t say all the words…sometimes he’ll see me and go, “Ma-ma!” and throw himself on me. Or Finn says he likes my earrings. Or Hazel will say, “You look pretty, Mama,” first thing in the morning. And I realize, that’s all my husband. They’re seeing the things that he does and the way that he shares his feelings with me, and the way that I share my feelings with him. The coolest thing you can do for your children is to love each other in their presence.
