Do you want to know which celebrity I believe is rarely in the public eye? Despite being an Oscar-winning actress who has starred in some of the most successful films of the past 30 years, we fans know very little about her.
One thing we do know, however, is that Julia Roberts’ life changed for the better when she became a wife and mother. Her three children have grown up, and her daughter has recently garnered attention for resembling her famous mother.
It’s not surprising that most celebrities nowadays have social media accounts to interact with their fans and share their daily lives. However, Julia Roberts, one of the most prominent movie stars ever, has not jumped on that bandwagon.
Although there is a Twitter account registered under her name with over 540,000 followers, she hasn’t tweeted once. She also isn’t active on Facebook. Roberts does have an Instagram page where she occasionally posts updates, but she rarely shares pictures of her family.
Over the years, she has preferred to keep her children away from the public eye, stating that they value their family life and wish to protect it from intrusion. In 2013, the actress told USA Today that they try to keep their children’s lives private. Roberts also acknowledges that her age has helped her avoid the pitfalls of celebrity culture and the internet age.
Julia Roberts first marriage
Throughout the years, Julia had relationships with various renowned actors like Benjamin Bratt and Kiefer Sutherland, which earned her the nickname “America’s sweetheart” and garnered attention from many suitors.
During her career peak, Julia began a romantic involvement with singer-songwriter Lyle Lovett. Their relationship blossomed quickly, and Lyle felt incredibly fortunate to have her. In a spontaneous decision, they got married. Unfortunately, the couple faced immense pressure, leading to the dissolution of their marriage just two years later, in 1995.
Julia Roberts husband
In 2000, while filming The Mexican, the actress best known for her role in Pretty Woman, met the love of her life behind the camera – cameraman Daniel Moder. They tied the knot in 2002 and welcomed twins Hazel and Phinnaeus in 2004. Three years later, they added another son named Henry to their family.
According to Julia, her life changed dramatically when she became a wife and mother, as she used to be a self-centered person who only cared about making movies. She credits her husband with helping her become a better person and changing her outlook on life.
The couple has worked together on several films over the years, which has further strengthened their relationship. Julia and Danny recently celebrated their 19th anniversary, with the actress sharing a rare photo of them on Instagram, and expressed her excitement for many more years of happiness together, stating, “19 years. Just getting started!”
Julia Roberts children
Julia is a proud mother to her three children: twins Hazel and Phinnaeus, and her youngest child Henry. Despite being a well-known face in the entertainment industry, Julia describes herself as a regular soccer mom and housewife. She once stated that if she wasn’t being interviewed, she would be in the carpool lane taking her kids to school.
While Julia considers her children her greatest accomplishment, parenting has not always been easy for her and her husband. She has joked about the challenges of carrying her children up to bed in an interview with Instyle.
To keep her children out of the spotlight and provide them with a quieter environment, Julia relocated from Los Angeles to San Francisco, where they could have a different experience. Her friend explained that Julia wanted her children to grow up in a diverse neighborhood where no one cared about her celebrity status.
As her children grow older, it has become more challenging to keep them away from the limelight. However, on their birthday in November 2021, Julia and her husband shared loving tributes to Hazel and Phinnaeus on social media.
Hazel, Julia’s sole daughter, remained a mystery for a long time. However, in recent times, more pictures of Hazel have surfaced, and many are taken aback by the striking resemblance between the mother-daughter duo, except for Hazel’s blonde hair.
Moreover, Hazel appears to have inherited her mother’s benevolent nature. When she was 12, Hazel decided to donate her cascading blonde hair to Wigs for Kids, an act that Julia disclosed to InStyle in 2017, expressing admiration for her daughter’s bravery.
Hazel made her debut on the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival in 2021, accompanying her father, who was there for his film Flag Day. According to Etonline, the stunning 16-year-old wore a butterscotch yellow button-up lace shirtdress and Mary Janes, evoking a ’90s chic vibe.
In your opinion, do Hazel and Julia bear a striking resemblance?
