Julia Roberts sprang to stardom as a smart-mouthed but innocent-at-heart call girl in the Cinderella-like tale, “Pretty Woman” in 1990. Since then she’s wowed us as the Brash, hard driving paralegal in “Erin Brockovich” and delighted us with a variety of romantic comedies.
She’s slept with the Enemy, played a fairy in “Peter Pan” and brought us to tears in “Steel Magnolias”. If there were a few dud films in the long list, we are all happy to overlook them. For some reason, we still love this pretty woman with her guts, compassion and that big ear-to-ear grin.
Julia has the knack for making her work look effortless. Undoubtedly she works very hard to give this appearance. Still, she is adept at different genres of acting. Her broad range of successes in the film industry speaks eloquently of her talent.
If Julia Roberts has a weakness as an actress it might be the paradox she presents us with, showing indefinable grace and yet an endearing awkwardness in many roles.
Often rumored to be difficult to work with, many state that motherhood has calmed her temper and she is much more focused lately. During her career, Roberts has earned three Golden Globes, One Academy Award and One BAFTA award. Her nominations and multitude of other lesser awards would require pages.
