Julia Roberts has decided to make us pay attention to her again because she has a new movie coming out. What did we do to deserve this? She’s starring in one of two movies based on the Snow White fairytale coming out this year. Hers, Mirror Mirror, looks kind of bad. Not even Armie Hammer‘s teeth can make me want to see it.
So here she is on the cover of White People Monthly, I mean um, Vanity Fair, with an interview done with Mike Nichols where she talks about how her children don’t care about who she is either, and how much Hollywood has changed since her and her mouth hit the big screen. While out with her son Finn, 7, she was recognized but he didn’t quite seem to get it.
“[Once] on a crowded street, and somebody noticed me, and then another person noticed. Somebody said as we were walking past, ‘Oh, that’s Julia Roberts.’ We all just kind of kept going, and then Finn said, ‘Yeah, my mum’s Julia Robinson.’ That’s what gives you perspective. It could be Robinson, it could be Johnson, because it has nothing to do with me as a person.”
Or maybe your child doesn’t know his own last name, Julia. She also thinks that young actresses have it harder than she did when she was starting out. “The business is so different; you can never be that new girl that has that moment of ‘Where’d she come from?'”
See Julia, there’s this thing, called the internet. I’d tell you that you can read the rest of this mess of an interview when the issue hits newsstands March 6, but you aren’t even going to flip through this, are you?
That Sorkin article might be good though.
