actress julia robertsOne of the highest paid actresses in Hollywood was born October 28, 1967 in Smyrna, Georgia, showing an early interest in acting that she shared with her older brother, actor Eric Roberts.

Roberts' first major film appearance was a memorable role as a small town waitress in Mystic Pizza in 1989, quickly followed by her Oscar-nominated performance in Steel Magnolias that same year.

Roberts' breakthrough role came in 1990, with her acclaimed prostitute-with-a-heart-of-gold performance in Pretty Woman opposite Richard Gere.

In the mid-90's, the actress also showed her dramatic acting chops alongside Denzel Washington in the Pelican Brief and in an equally-tense thriller, Conspiracy Theory, co-starring Mel Gibson. Offscreen, Roberts wed and divorced singer Lyle Lovett in a short-lived marriage that ended in divorce in 1995.

She later closed out the decade starring in huge box office successes - including Runaway Bride, Notting Hill (with Hugh Grant) and most notably in My Best Friend's Wedding featuring a young fledgling actress, Cameron Diaz.

In 2000, Roberts followed up with a powerhouse performance in Erin Brockovich for which she was paid an astronomical $20 million and walked off with the Best Actress Oscar and the title of Highest Paid Actress in Hollywood.

In a film career that spans more tha three decades, Julia Roberts' movie roles run the gamut to a hooker-
with-a-heart-of-gold in "Pretty Woman" (1990) to a fiercely determined public advocate in "Erin Brockovich"
(2000) to a raw, makeup-less performance in "August: Osage County" (2013).

In 2004, the actress appeared with Jude Law in Closer and re-teamed with the Ocean's Eleven crew in the sequel, Ocean's Twelve.

Offscreen, Roberts gave birth to twins, a boy and a girl named Phinnaeus and Hazel in Los Angeles on November 28, 2004 with current husband, Danny Moder, at her side. The actress made tabloid headlines again in 2007 when she gave birth to her third child - a son named Henry Daniel weighing in at 8 lbs. 8 ounces. That same year she was back in the public eye when she appeared in her next project Charlie Wilson's War" directed by Mike Nichols.

Since then, other notable roles include starring in Duplicity (2009), Eat, Pray, Love (2010), Larry Crowne (2011) and as the evil queen in Mirror, Mirror (2012). More recent roles include starring opposite Meryl Streep in August: Osage County (2013), and a lead role in the TV movie production of the Broadway drama, The Normal Heart (2014).
