Julia Roberts Covers 'Vanity Fair' April 2012

Julia Roberts Covers 'Vanity Fair' April 2012

Julia Roberts takes the cover of Vanity Fair‘s April 2012 issue, on newsstands in New York and L.A. on February 29.

Here’s what the 44-year-old Mirror, Mirror actress had to share:

On her kids’ understanding of her celebrity: “[O]n 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 mom’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.”

On whether there are steps to stardom for young actors: “No. There’s the express elevator and there’s rehab. It’s so awful; nobody gets a fair trial-and-error period that everybody deserves and everybody needs.”

On wanting to return to the stage: “It’s like childbirth: you don’t know until you’ve done it, but you get a little bit away from it and you go, ‘Of course, I want to do that again.’ You get sucked back into doing theater, because it’s really thrilling, and it does challenge you as an actor in really unique ways. You know, I love the medium of film; I love that environment, but it’s just different.”

  • Jamie

    She is the most boring woman on the planet!
    She always looks the same, acts the same and plays the same part.
    It amazes me this one trick horse has an Oscar and people like Johnny Deep dont.

    What a face! Very beautiful.

    Julia, does need to pick better roles and bring it up a notch. It seems she had really settled into a quiet life outside of the spotlight. Still hoping to see her in a great role.
