To the question: “Why hasn’t Julia changed over the last 25 years?”, she replied that it was all about the love of her husband. “Good genes, a fulfilling life, and I've said this before - and I usually say it as a joke - but I believe in the love of a good man. I believe that my husband loves me and cares for me in a way that makes me feel deeply, deeply happy. And when you see a happy person, it doesn’t matter how old he is.”

Roberts, 56, added: “Anouk Aimee (French actress - Ed.) told me many years ago, when I was very young and it never occurred to me that I would ever have wrinkles: “ Until you're 50, you live with your face in your life, and then you live your life on your face."

Julia admitted to Curtis that playing an actress in the movie "Notting Hill" was a big deal. It was a real test for her. At some point, she even thought about giving up this role.

“One of the most difficult things for me was your film [Notting Hill, 1999], where I played a film actress. I felt so uncomfortable! We talked about it so many times, but I almost turned down the role because it seemed so awkward to me. I didn't even know how to play this man."

The star of "Pretty Woman" said that she is not always smiling and kind, as many may seem at first glance. Her character has both severity and straightforwardness. "I think I am being very straightforward. This is exactly how I see myself. I'm very frank. There are a lot of individuals in the world who don't accept this so easily, and it can seem very rude to them, even if I feel like I'm just being honest about something and telling it how I see it. I never try to be unkind."

Roberts admitted why it's important to her that she works "with a G rating" throughout her career. (no age restrictions). "I think it would be more appropriate to say that the things I choose not to do represent me. I don’t want to criticize the choices of others, but for me, not getting naked in a movie and not being physically vulnerable is a choice I make for myself.”

A big success in Julia’s life, she says, was that she never had to make a choice between career and family, like many other artists. “I think the most fortunate aspect of my family and work life is that success in my work life came early. So by the time I became successful in my family life, when I had a husband and children who wanted to stay at home, I had been working for 18 years. And so I felt like I had this luxury. I didn’t have to choose one or the other.”

“So it was easy for me to take a break from work to do household chores. But my children should also see that my creative life has meaning for me. I want them to understand this. Getting out of the house and being creative is very important and vital. And this does not change my love for home. This is another level of my life."
