Julia Roberts Talks Beauty & Motherhood

Despite a new gig with Lancome, the mother-of-three, 42, admitted that there are areas of her beauty routine that could use some improvement, “I think I have to stand up straighter and wash my face more,” she said.

Meanwhile, fresh from her Eat, Pray, Love shoot in which she plays writer Elizabeth Gilbert on her soul-searching trip through Italy, India and Indonesia Julia admitted, “It was quite a huge undertaking.

“It was a little bit daunting, dragging three little kids around the world, but well worth it,” she said, referring to her three children, the oldest of whom are five-year-old twins.

“It was really like the acting Olympics,” continued Julia. “It’s been a long time since I’ve had a full-time acting job. I am really glad that I made the decision to go off and do that movie. I hope that Liz [Gilbert] really likes it more than anything,” said Julia.

“She’s a really interesting woman. I’m pretty fascinated by her, and I think a lot of people relate to her. So that’s the greatest challenge [with] a book that’s so well-known: You want people to see the movie and have that same sense of interest and comfort that they got from reading the book.”

Julia is excited about taking a hands-on approach to her role with Lancôme, “I get all these things to play with and test and give my opinion about,” she said.

“And it’s quite exciting without having to invest all of myself in how I look because they did come to me as me, which is a pretty casual mom. But you know, it’s nice to up your game a little bit.”

Have children changed her beauty regimen? “It kind of comes to a screeching halt,” she admitted. “At a certain point in the future, I’ll pick it back up again.

“I think the nice thing about getting older is it forces you in a way to take a greater interest in your [beauty] regime. And so it’s a good moment for me to join forces with people who can help me,” she said, laughing.

    I have nevr thought Julia was a great actress but she has been good enough to have a great career. She is undoubtedly very pretty but above all she is photogenic, which is more important in this business.

    I really like JR i think shes accomplished and talented. But what makes her stand out is the fact that she doesnt parade around like other ‘actors.’ Wasnt she the most highest paid actress- but you wont see her on the cover of magazines or babbling constantly about her chn, hubby, looks etc etc.
    Shes married someone relativley unknown, keeps herself to herself bringing up the kids.
    Also i love the smile

    I agree. I never did understand all the hype around her. I liked a couple of movies that she did but other than that, never saw the appeal.

    I always think of a horse when I see her mouth.

    I agree I think she is way overrated. I have never really understood why people say how beautiful she is, to me she look like the girl next door that if she was not a celeb no one would ever look twice at.

    I think Julia is an average actress and definitely overrated, but I like her down-to-earth attitude. She seems like she is a fun mom who doesn’t mind to get dirty with the kids.
