Julia Roberts Reveals How She Came to Star in 'Wonder'

Julia Roberts poses with Wonder director Stephen Chbosky and writer R.J. Palacio in the new issue of Good Housekeeping, on newsstands now.

Here’s what the 50-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On how we can be better as humans: “I think we need to stop criticizing. Honestly, it’s become a sport – at lunch, online, wherever. ‘I can’t believe the way she’s wearing her hair,’ or ‘He looks so…’ It’s all so petty, and we’re grown-up people. There have to be more interesting things to note about one another…and I’m talking to myself here too, because I find the sarcasm and the criticism and stuff like that very humorous, but there’s a time when you go, ‘Well, why don’t I say all the true and kind things’”

On how she found Wonder: “It was getting tricky in my house to have a nighttime chapter book everyone would like, so I bought Wonder, and I could not put it down. I read it to the three kids [Hazel and Phinneaus, now 13, and Henry, now 10], and they were all as knocked out as I had been. I remember calling my agent after I read the book and saying, ‘I’ll play the mom!’”

Julia Roberts Has the Best Response to Those Asking About Turning 50

Julia Roberts is on the cover of InStyle magazine’s December 2017 issue.

Here’s what the 50-year-old actress had to share:

On seeing crazy tabloid rumors: “I do believe that I don’t need to know every weird, mean, untrue, odd [tabloid claim]. ‘I only eat popcorn or my husband doesn’t love me unless I wear blue’…There is an odd occasion where I’m waiting, and I’m looking around and I’m like, ‘What?!’ And turn around to the man behind me and go, ‘Not true, sir!’”

On her keys to joy: “Marry the right person, give birth to a redhead, and have great girlfriends.”

On turning 50: “There’s nothing different about this birthday than any other one. Really, people? Are we still in that space? Did anyone ever go over this with George Clooney or Brad [Pitt] before their 50th birthdays?”
