Julia Roberts is Still a Pretty Woman

You know who I thought was seriously the prettiest lady I’d ever seen when I was a young kid? Julia Roberts. That’s right. I saw ‘Pretty Woman’ at a pretty young age, and though I didn’t really understand the premise of “streetwalker” or “prostitute” or “paid for sex” (whatever “sex” was at that young age), I knew that the story was magical and real and I loved loved loved Julia Roberts from then on out. I loved her as Shelby in ‘Steel Magnolias’, I loved her as Daisy in ‘Mystic Pizza’, Tinkerbell in ‘Hook’, Grace in ‘Something to Talk About’ (a poignant movie if I ever saw one), and of course, Kiki in ‘America’s Sweethearts’, and she’s pretty much been a love in my life as far as actresses go.

Yeah, you know, she had her un-nice points, though, too—she practically stood Kiefer Sutherland up at the altar (someone else that I love immensely), and she practically ruined ‘Eat, Pray, Love’ with her contrived take on the role of Liz Gilbert, but she’s always remained a favorite of mine.

Julia was captured playing on the beach with her daughter, Hazel, who is seven and adorable, while vacationing in Hawaii.

What was your favorite Julia Roberts movie? Does anyone here even like Julia Roberts? I personally know a lot of people (namely my husband and my dearly departed grandmother) who think that she’s just a pain in the ass piece of crap with an abomination of a mouth, but hey. Different strokes for different folks, am I right?

Who Is The Highest Paid Actress in Hollywood?

Oh, you guys, I’m sorry. When I asked the question of “who is the highest paid actress in Hollywood?” and then put a picture of Meryl Streep right up there at the top, that made it look like Meryl is the highest paid actress, didn’t it? I’m sorry, but it’s just not true. Meryl is on the list, but she’s not at the top. She deserves to be at the top, but she’s not.

Before I let you know the richiest rich lady in Hollywood, let me just show you the top ten list, all right? I’ll go ahead and tack on the amount of money they made in the past year, just so you can cry while you balance your checkbook like I do.

10. Jennifer Aniston – $11 million
9. Kristen Wiig – $12 million
8. Meryl Streep – $12 million
7. Sarah Jessica Parker – $15 million
6. Julia Roberts – $16 million
5. Charlize Theron – $18 million
4. Angelina Jolie – $20 million
3. Sandra Bullock – $25 million
2. Cameron Diaz – $34 million

Ok, but who do you think landed in the number one spot? Who do you think made nearly three times as much as the beloved Meryl Streep? Who do you think made a few million dollars more than Angelina Jolie and Jennifer Aniston combined?

1. Kristen Stewart – $34.5 million

Yes, thanks to them Twilight movies and Snow White and the Huntsman, Kristen Stewart is the top-earning actress in all of Hollywood. Does anyone else feel physically ill?

Julia Roberts’ Kids Don’t Like Her Acting

From The Daily Express:

As one of the most famous actresses in the world, it may come as a surprise that Julia Roberts’s three children appear to be the biggest critics of her thespian skills.

Julia has three children, twins hazel and Phinnaeus, seven, and Henry, four, with husband Daniel Moder and admits there is no luvvie behaviour in her house.

“They hate me acting at home,” says the 44-year-old. “I read to them at bedtime and they’re just like, ‘Can you stop doing that? Stop with the voices!’ So I have to just read it normally.”

Yeah, I’m totally with Julia Roberts‘ kids here. I’m sorry, but have you seen the trailer for her newest movie?

Don’t get me wrong, I love cheesy movies and I love bad movies, and heaven knows I love fairy tale movies, but this? This just looks like a hot mess rolled up in cheap costumes and eyebrows. I see this trailer pretty often, since I go to the movies pretty often*, and every time I feel like I’m going to roll my eyes so far back into my head that they aren’t going to come back in time for the actual movie I went to see. I just think it looks so bad.

Now, if I was Julia Roberts’ kid during the 90′s? Totally different story. I’d be all “mommy, could you read me the princess story again please?” and she’s be like “which one, darling?” and I’d be like “Cinde-f*ckin-rella.” And then we’d giggle and hug.

*We saw Journey 2 The Mysterious Island yesterday, that movie with Dwayne Johnson, and it was pretty enjoyable. It was 3-D, and there was this one part where The Rock bounced berries off his pecs, and it looked like the berries were flying right at your face! But before that, we went to see Joyful Noise, that Dolly Parton and Queen Latifah movie that I was so excited about. And listen, you guys have to see it. It’s so funny. I mean, it’s kind of a horrible movie, but it’s so horrible it’s absolutely hilarious. I felt bad for the other people in the theater because there were a few stretches of around ten minutes or so where I could just not stop laughing. I was doubled over in the seat, trying to breathe, it was amazing.
