Julia Roberts Stands Behind LGBTQ Rights, 'I Want All Students to Feel Safe'

Julia Roberts is speaking out against President Donald Trump as she supports LGBTQ students.

The 49-year-old actress is backing Missouri students as they fight to protect LGBTQ youth rights within their state schools.

Julia and 16-year-old student Miguel Johnson attended the GLSEN Respect Awards to talk about keeping LGTBQ protections in place under Donald Trump‘s presidency.

“As a parent, I want all students to feel safe and protected at school, and I stand with Miguel and trans students across the country. You are loved,” Julia told People mag. “Before Trump got elected, he always said he was totally for LGBTQ students, because they’re people too and they deserve an education. And then after he got elected, he was basically like, ‘Just kidding, I lied.’”

In Missouri, the trans-inclusive Title IX guidance has been revoked and new anti-trans state bills are being introduced.

In the meantime, Miguel says he will continue to fight to protect fellow LGTBQ students.

“I’m still trying to figure out what I can do to feel okay and how to make my friends and fellow students feel okay, and honestly I don’t have an answer,” Miguel said. “There’s not an easy solution, especially when the person with the most power is messing stuff up. “

Julia Roberts Named World's Most Beautiful Woman By 'People' for Record 5th Time!

Julia Roberts has been named by 2017 World’s Most Beautiful Woman by People magazine – the fifth time in her career she’s received the honor!

The 49-year-old actress first covered the mag back in 1991 when she was 23 years old – just one year after Pretty Women skyrocketed her to fame.

“People say, ‘Oh, when Pretty Woman came out it must have really changed your life,’ and it’s kind of become this joke, but the truth is I was out of town when Pretty Woman came out…I was in another movie in this tiny little town that was showing Star Wars in its first run. I remember reading … ‘Pretty Woman came out this weekend and made this much money’ and I thought, ‘Is that a lot of money? Is that good? Is that great?’ I didn’t really know,” Julia said.

“I mean every day my husband walks in the door it’s like a recurring dream. I’m like, ‘Ah, he’s back!’” Julia joked. She also said on the honor, “I am very flattered.”

“At the age they are now, it would be a short night,” she revealed during her appearance on Good Morning America on Wednesday (April 5). “But in a few years, there are some that I’m really looking forward to. I guess, I think of my daughter. I can’t wait for her to see My Best Friend’s Wedding. That will be sweet. And I think they’ll be pleased with how I spent my 20s and 30s.”

Julia shares three kids – twins Hazel and Phinnaeus, 12, and Henry, 9 – with her husband Daniel Moder.

“There’s nothing more thrilling than creating a piece of work and feeling like you have some triumph to bring home and lay at the feet of your family,” Julia explained. “I love [being a parent]. I love it when it’s easy, and I love it when it’s challenging. I love being able to go to bed at 8:30. You’re allowed to not only appreciate the weekends in a new way again and Christmas holidays in a new way again and summer vacation is a whole new joy – it’s such a great learning experience. They’re just such great teachers, young people. Their point of view is so unique.”
