Julia Roberts Admits Age Influences Her Film Roles




Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Casting, Celeb News,

Julia Roberts admits she has become pickier about the film roles she accepts as she has gotten older.

The Oscar-winning actress is now 46 and she is happy to admit there are numerous parts she will no longer consider now she is a veteran screen star and is comfortable to accept she is not suitable to play suitable characters because she is a mature star.

When discussing the reason why she appears in less films now, she revealed, “There's a couple of things at play. For one, I'm 46 years old, so falling out of chairs isn't as funny. I could break a hip. Certain scenarios that worked 10 years ago aren't as appealing, as applicable, as believable, as original - all those things.”

Julia says a lot of people have the misconception she takes on less work now because she wants to spend as much time as possible with her three children, twins Hazel and Phinnaeus, nine, and son Henry, six, whom she raises with her husband Danny Moder. While the August: Osage County star does prioritize her family over work, she is adamant that isn't the reason why she isn't now a prolific Hollywood actress: “I think people like to say that I'm super-picky because of how much I love my kids. But as an actor, I sort of pride myself on the fact that I've always been picky.”
