Julia Roberts: I Have Pride In Taking Care Of My Family

juliamarieclaire111113-_1

Julia Roberts covers the December issue of Marie Claire and opens up about her career, social media, and family life with husband Danny Moder and their kids: nearly 9-year-old twins Hazel and Phinnaeus and 6-year-old Henry.

On motherhood: “It’s about women taking care of their families and what an incredible challenge it is for a myriad of reasons, and how fixable it can be. I saw a picture of a woman with a baby on her back, just like I would be with one of my babes on my hip, cooking at the stove. Her hut is full of toxic smoke, and that child is in tremendous peril. It’s my privilege and honor to cook three meals a day for my family, and it’s a luxury on a level that I didn’t even realize, because it can be relentless for me on some days. You have pride in how you take care of your family.”

On her career: “I think the reason I’ve been able to enjoy my career is that I always knew, for some reason – even when it was about getting a job to pay your bills and stuff – I always knew that it will surface, it will come. The things that are correct for me will come to me at the time that I am interested in them and have the capacity, the understanding, to do them.”

On social media: “It’s kind of like cotton candy: It looks so appealing and you just can’t resist getting in there, and then you just end up with sticky fingers and it lasted an instant.”

On her Oscar chances: “Listen, every actor wants to win an Oscar, full stop. It doesn’t mean you try to design things around how to accomplish that because that’s impossible. Now that I’m a grown-up person and have things of such greater value to pin my idea of joy and fullness on, if something like that were to happen again, my feeling of thrill would be defined in a completely different way.”

Julia Roberts & Family: Day At The Beach

*EXCLUSIVE* Julia Roberts makes it a Family Day at the Beach

Julia Roberts and Danny Moder took their children 8-year-old Hazel and Phinnaeus and 6-year-old Henry to the beach in Malibu, Calif. on Wednesday (August 21).

The actress was seen carrying a boogie board and covered up in a poncho. The wind didn’t bother Danny who stayed shirtless.

Roberts has wrapped on August: Osage County and is now working on a television movie called The Normal Heart.

When they’re not in Hollywood – the family have a home in Taos, New Mexico.

She has said, “It’s peaceful, and it’s a relief. I always say you can’t be in a bad mood here. I don’t know if it’s New Mexico or just the mountains, but you can’t be silly in a negative way. You can be silly in a fun, whimsical way, but the petty, trite things that make you go, “Oh, God, it’s not the right size” or “Why is this happening like this?”—that kind of stuff doesn’t exist so much here. Everything is kind of clear.”

Julia Roberts: Field Trip Chaperone

Exclusive... Julia Roberts Chaperones A Field Trip For Her Son

Academy Award-winning actress Julia Roberts was photographed on a field trip with her son Henry, nearly 6, in Los Angeles, Calif. on Friday (May 24). The Pretty Woman was all smiles while chaperoning her son and his classmates at the Los Angeles County Museum of Natural History.

Julia and husband Danny Moder are also parents to 8-year-old twins Hazel and Phinnaeus.

The famous family makes their home on a ranch in Taos, New Mexico.

“It’s peaceful, and it’s a relief,” Julia said of raising her family away from the spotlight. “I always say you can’t be in a bad mood here. I don’t know if it’s New Mexico or just the mountains, but you can’t be silly in a negative way. You can be silly in a fun, whimsical way, but the petty, trite things that make you go, “Oh, God, it’s not the right size” or “Why is this happening like this?”—that kind of stuff doesn’t exist so much here. Everything is kind of clear.”

Watch for Julia to light up the big screen in August: Osage County, costarring George Clooney and Meryl Streep.

10 Female Celebrity Breadwinners

breadwinners

Mama brings home the bacon.

A recent survey found that more half of American women were considered the primary breadwinners in the family. So let’s take a look at 10 celebrity moms who cash in at higher levels than their partners, from Jessica Alba, to Julia Roberts, to Gwen Stefani.

  • Jessica Alba:

Jessica Alba – mom of daughters Honor, 4, and Haven, 1 – has an estimated net worth of $20 million. While her husband Cash Warren is a Yale graduate and film producer, Jessica rakes in millions for her movie roles, and is now the co-owner of the Honest Company.

But Jessica is sure to give her lower-earning husband credit for her ongoing success. “My husband Cash has been integral in my development as an entrepreneur,” she said.

  • Bethenny Frankel:

Former Real Housewives of New York star and SkinnyGirl Cocktails founder, Bethenny Frankel, pulled in a cool $12 million last year. The television star and entrepreneur – mom of 3-year-old daughter Bryn – has an estimated net worth of $25 million.

Bethenny’s estranged husband, Jason Hoppy, has a much lower income as a pharmaceutical rep. Perhaps this was an issue in their “miserable” and short marriage?

  • Gwen Stefani:

British rockstar Gavin Rossdale and his band, Bush, broke up in 2002. But his rocker wife, Gwen Stefani, continues to be the frontwoman of No Doubt. And not to mention, she created her successful clothing line, L.A.M.B.

In 2008 alone, the mom-of-two earned $27 million. With an estimated net worth of $80 million, the mom of Kingston, 7, and Zuma, 4, really knows how to rake in the dough.

  • Drew Barrymore:

With her acting career and successful production company Flower Films, Drew Barrymore earned $12 in 2009. And her estimated net worth is a whopping $125 million.

Although Drew’s new husband, Will Kopelman, is an art advisor and no stranger to wealth (he is the son of former Chanel CEO Arie Kopelman), his paychecks pale in comparison to his famous wife.

The pair are new parents to 7-month-old daughter Olive.

  • Reese Witherspoon:

With an Academy Award and numerous hit movies under her belt, it’s no surprise that Reese Witherspoon – mom of Ava, 13, Deacon, 9, and Tennessee, 7 months – has an estimated net worth of $80 million.

While she was once wed to fellow actor Ryan Phillippe, and recently dated fellow A-lister Jake Gyllenhaal, she is now married to talent agent Jim Toth, whom does not earn multi-million dollar paychecks like his famous wife.

  • Jessica Simpson:

Jessica Simpson is one of the most famous singer-turned-entrepreneurs of all time.

The expectant mama has a lucrative fashion line, a Weight Watchers deal and a hosting gig on TV’s Fashion Star, making her estimated net worth around $100 million.

Meanwhile, her fiancé Eric Johnson, a former NFL player, is not bringing home any known revenue at the moment. The couple expect their second child within weeks, and they are already parents to 1-year-old daughter Maxwell.

  • Kelly Ripa:

She’s a former soap star that turned into a successful talk show host, holding her own next to the king of daytime TV, Regis Philbin.

But Kelly Ripa - lucky in love after 17 years of marriage to her All My Children costar Mark Consuelos - is also incredibly wealthy, worth an estimated $75 million.

With Mark taking on the occasional hosting gigs, Kelly rakes in the dough for Mark and their three kids: Michael, nearly 16, Lola, nearly 12, and Joaquin, 10.

  • Natalie Portman:

Academy Award-winning actress Natalie Portman has been called one of Hollywood’s most “bankable” actresses.

Her husband, ballet choreographer Benjamin Millepied, recently landed the new role of Director of Dance at the Paris Opera Ballet. But Natalie – mom to 1 1/2-year-old Aleph – is still the main breadwinner, with an estimated net worth of $32 million.

  • Mariah Carey:

Nick Cannon reportedly receives $70 thousand per episode of America’s Got Talent. But that does not even compare to his wife, Mariah Carey, and her reported $18 million salary to join American Idol.

As one of the most successful female recording artists of all time, Mariah is worth an estimated $500 million, making her more than capable of providing a luxurious lifestyle for the couple’s 2-year-old twins Moroccan and Monroe.

  • Julia Roberts:

Pretty Woman star Julia Roberts was ranked the fifth highest-paid actress by Forbes in 2011 and regularly pulls in double-digit figures for her movies.

After meeting on the set of 2000′s The Mexican, Julia and her hubby, cameraman Danny Moder, have welcomed three children: 8-year-old twins Finn and Hazel and Henry, 6.

But although Danny also works in the film industry, he doesn’t even come close to his wife’s estimated net worth of $140 million.

Hollywood, Then and Now

I can’t believe it’s been almost 20 years since my senior year in High School.  I knew back then that when we gathered for the reunion,  we would probably need a few name tags to identify one another.  Generally we’ve all changed to a certain degree,  but at the 20 year mark,  we’ve all changed to the point where it would deem necessary the use of name tags.  I walked into a grocery store the other day and saw a Facebook friend of mine that I had not seen since high school and didn’t recognize him.  I wonder how many other people I’ve seen out and about and didn’t make the connection.  I know some of us have lost our hair, gained some weight, grew some facial hair (and that’s just the women) even came across a few, “HOLY Sh*t!  WTF happened to you?”  moments.  All in all in the end,  it’s always good to see an old friend. 

Even though we didn’t have any celebrities from our class,  I wonder even if we did, would I even recognize them?  I’m glad that I treated people kindly, the same way that I do now, cause you never know when you will run into a ‘blast from the past’.  Imagine if you were the guy in H.S that dated Octo-mom with thoughts of one day raising a family.  Imagine if you were someone that laughed at Bill Gates for being a nerd way back when.  Imagine if you made fun of Angelina Jolie for having big lips.  I find joy in knowing that a few of the ‘unpopular’ kids are now so rich they could buy the venue our reunion will be held in.  I smile from ear to ear when I hear stories of ‘fat’ girls becoming ‘sexy’ movie actresses,  hanging on a poster in your sons bedroom as he tells you to ‘knock’ before you come in.  Gotta love karma.

Julia Roberts sucks at running too

Julia Roberts took to the streets of her neighborhood yesterday in the hope that running a block at 3 miles an hour would make her look semi-descent in a bikini and ended up almost passing out half way through. Which is why i posted these, horrible, horrible bikini pics of her from just two months ago. I’m all about empowering women to reach their full potential. Run, Julia, run!!!

Video: Julia Roberts’ million dollar smile


And here’s one amazing video clip to keep your mood in check and help you sail cheerfully through the rest of this holiday season. Italian coffee company Lavazza reportedly paid Julia Roberts $1.5 million for this 45-second commercial. While the figure may appear a bit too exorbitant, I don’t think Lavazza has overspent on this ad. If the motive behind this commercial was to claim that their coffee can rejuvenate even a brain dead man, then Lavazza has hit bullseye by roping Julia as a symbol. Because, you know, if there’s one thing that can actually pull this trick, it’s Julia’s pretty smile. Enjoy the video.

Best moment: Totally Adorable!

 

Julia Roberts Yelled Some Naughty Words at the Paparazzi

So much for America’s Sweetheart because Julia Roberts has a potty mouth! And even more shockingly, is alive. Holy shit!

Julia was apparently walking with her husband and three kids when this guy got in their face and attempted to greet the clan, affably. Instead, Julia shouted awesome things like, “You get the f*ck out of my face… do you understand me?” Also, “You are harassing me. Get the f*ck out of my face. You have followed me all over town. I have had it with you…F*ck off! Aim higher! Get a life! Get away from me!”

Radar has the details:

Like a fierce lioness protecting her cubs, Julia Roberts confronted a photographer  — getting right into his face — after she spotted him snapping pictures of her family in Los Angeles this week.

The incident happened Monday as Roberts, 43, walked with her husband Danny Moder and her three children –  6-year-old twins Hazel Patricia Moder and Phinnaeus “Finn” Walter Moder and 3-year-old Henry Daniel Moder.

I’m now imagining Julia’s daughter saying to her second-grade teacher tomorrow: “You are harassing me. Get the f*ck out of my face. I have had it with you… F*ck off! Aim higher! Get a life! Get away from me!”

I especially like the idea of the kid saying to her teacher, “Aim higher! Get a life!”

 

Celebrity Children Who Have Helped Heal Famous Families

Anyone who has ever had a family knows what it's like to experience grief, discord, or estrangement... and if your family has remained free of such sorrows, consider yourself lucky!

Even, and sometimes especially the rich and famous find themselves caught up in family feuds that are documented in the headlines for all to witness. But several celebrities have found healing and a way back to love and goodwill through the birth and upbringing of their children.

From Julia Roberts and Angelina Jolie to Sandra Bullock and Mariska Hargitay, click through to read about famous families who have found new beginnings in their own families via their kids.

 

Julia Roberts: My Husband Is "My Rock"

In Eat Pray Love, Julia Roberts plays a woman who leaves her marriage in a quest of self-discovery, but in real life it's husband Daniel Moder that keeps her grounded.

He's my rock. My husband is my best bud. He's so smart and he never lets me down

And the actress also admits that it's her husband's dedication to their three children – twins Hazel and Phinnaeus, 5, and son Henry, 3 – that makes it possible for her to accept as many movie roles as she does. "People often ask me about balancing work and motherhood and whatnot, but it's easier for me than for so many others," she said. "I can choose when I work and I have a wonderful support system in place."

But Julia is quick to point out that there isn't any one key to a happy union. "There's no 'secret' to a successful marriage - it's not a magic trick," she says. "I'm just lucky to have found someone who I can build my life on.

"I'm at an appropriate place in my life. But you have to continually nurture that place. I don't think it's a finite fixed point on a map, but family definitely plays a huge part in that."

 

Julia Roberts & Her Bali Babes

Hazel and Phinnaeus are getting so big! Busy mom Julia Roberts brought her twins, who turn 5 later this month, to the airport in Bali before returning to the set of Eat, Pray, Love today (November 9).

The Oscar-winner is starring in the film adaptation of Elizabeth Gilbert's best-selling memoir along with Billy Crudup, Javier Bardem and James Franco. The movie is scheduled to hit theaters next year.

Julia and her hubby Daniel Moder are also parents to 2-year-old son Henry.
