She’s made us smile, she’s made us cry and she’s made us laugh over the years as a versatile leading lady and strong supporting actress who can shine in any role she’s given. Here are five times this heavy weight veteran has won audiences with her performance:
5.) Erin Brockovich
A blunt, hard working and passionate Erin Brockovich shows us that if you put your mind to it, no matter what your circumstances, you can make a difference. It’s all in the guts to make a move and the perseverance to keep going.
4.) Notting Hill
A sweet story about an actress falling for a bookstore owner. What’s not to love? “I’m just a girl, standing in front of a guy asking him to love her” Naaaaw.
3.) America’s Sweethearts
Catherine Zeta-Jones, John Cusack, Billy Crystal, Hank Azaria and Julia Roberts. What a great cast. The way they all interact with each other will draw you in and make you laugh and smile along the way especially Kiki’s (Roberts) love-hate relationship with her sister Gwen (Zeta-Jones).
2.) Conspiracy Theory
Mel Gibson and Julia Roberts make an unusual pairing but it works.
1.) Pretty Woman
No Julia Roberts list would be complete without Pretty Woman. Julia brings charm and warmth to this tale of transformation and unlikely romance. Who wouldn’t love a movie that shows us you are worth more than just your circumstance?
