Previous life
Julia Roberts first saw the daylight on October 28, 1967. She was born in Atlanta, Georgia, to the daughter of an Irish family; but in Smyrna, a small town in Georgia, she grew up with her mother Betty-Lou and her father Walter. Her mother is the actress and the church secretary; his father was a vacuum cleaner seller, writer and actor. Julia is the youngest of the three brothers; his older brother is Eric Roberts and his older sister Lisa Roberts.

Julia had a tragic childhood. When she was only four years old, her mother and father left because of financial difficulties. While his father Walter decided to move back to Atlanta with his sixteen-year-old son Eric, Betty-Lou stayed with his two daughters in Smyrna. When Julia was ten years old, in March 1978, her father died of cancer. At school, the kids mocked her for her thick glasses and big mouth. She accepted her big mouth and decided to make her mouth a brand. Using contact lenses, he exposed hazel eyes, which he hid with his thick glasses. Julia never tried to hide that she was tall. His height made him more perfect.

First years and first Oscar nomination (1986-1989)
In the early days, Julia planned to become a vegetarian and was less interested in acting. After graduating from Campbell High School, she joined her older sister and older brother to attend a theater school in New York. Prior to acting, he worked on Baskin-Robbins and Athlete's Foot. Then she signed a contract with the dummy company "Click" and stayed with them until she released her carving-ready older brother Eric as Julia's first movie role in "Blood Red." The movie didn't go well; but in Hollywood people started talking about it. In 1988, he played a pizza waiter at Mystic Pizza and then played with Satisfaction with Liam Neeson. Things got hotter behind the camera between Julia and Liam. A year later, at the Steel Magnolias, his then-fiancé, Dylan McDermott, played opposite. Just before “Steel Magnolias”, Julia got sick and was getting better when filming started. This did not stop director Herbert Ross from saying bad things about his acting, mostly in front of people; But when Julia became an Oscar candidate, Ross stopped.

Pretty Woman and Sutherland (1990-1992)
A year later, he suddenly became a big star when the whole Earth became “Pretty Woman”. Suddenly, everyone wanted him. The newspapers wrote about him every day, and the whole world spoke about him. This interest was difficult for him. Weakened; Rumors spread that he used drugs and had anorexia.

When Kiefer met Sutherland, he had escaped this situation, and Sutherland was his co-star in Flatliners. He left his wife and moved to Julia. This scandal was real, and the relationship of the year began. In August 1990, Julia and Kiefer announced that they were engaged, and in October, Kiefer gave a Chinese "eternal love" tattoo on Julia's left shoulder. The dream ended when Julia saw Kiefer having sex with stripper Amanda Rice. The wedding was canceled and Julia went to Ireland to look for comfort. Meanwhile, "Sleeping with the Enemy" has opened with great success in the USA.

In 1991, Julia decided to take a break.For two long years, with her small role in the movie "The Player" (1992), she completely avoided the big screen, and everyone was asking: "Where did Pretty Woman go?".

Explosion and pause (1993-1999)
In 1993, he returned with a big bang. He played the role of Darby Shaw in John Grisham's novel "The Pelican Brief". This movie was a recycler for Julia and was a great success in theaters. During filming (June 1993), Julia surprised everyone by marrying local singer Lyle Lovett, ten years older than herself. "Yes." On the way to go, Julia was barefoot and without makeup.

Two years later, in March 1995, the couple announced their separation. They left after 21 months of their marriage; but they are still good friends.

Over the coming years, Julia's films have not been a great success, and the rumors that her career has ended began to circulate. He was spoken of “new Julia Roberts” at the time, and his rivals included Sandra Bullock, Julia Ormond and Julianne Moore, but in the summer of 1997, he silenced everyone with the films “Conspiracy Theory” and “My Best Friend's Wedding”. With her long hair and a smile on her face, she returned as the people wanted.

At the 1998 Christmas premiere of the movie "Stepmom", Julia came with a new man. This man was Benjamin Bratt from the Law and Order series. During their four-year dating, marriage and baby talks were consistent; But Julia said that they were happy with their situation and did not want to rush in anything.

Oscar and separation (2000-2001)
In 2000, he began filming the movie, starring a lonely mother based on a true life story under the direction of Steven Soderbergh: “Erin Brockovich”. This film was the first to work with Soderbergh (Erin Brockovich, Full Frontal, Ocean's 11 and Ocean's 12) .With this film, he won the 2001 Golden Globe award.

A month later, Benjamin Bratt was with Julia for the last time when she won an Oscar for her role in the movie "Erin Brockovich." In the Acceptance Speech, he thanked everyone he met on stage for five minutes and said, "I love this place!" yell. "I love the world, I'm very happy, thank you!" he finished his speech.

Towards the end of June 2001, Julia and Benjamin announced they were leaving. He described his relationships as a "gentle and emotional end".

Marriage and twins (2002-2004)
After winning an Oscar, Julia slowed down; While focusing on his own life, he played small roles in films such as "Full Frontal" and "Confessions of a Dangerous Mind". During the filming of the movie "The Mexican", he met cameraman Daniel Moder and became close friends. For a long time, there was love speculation, in December 2001, the first official photo of the couple was taken at the premiere of the movie "Ocean's Eleven". Julia looked happy and happy with her new blonde look.

The couple got married on the Independence Day, on July 4, 2002, at Julia's large farm in New Mexico. In her first interview after the wedding, Julia described Danny as "the man among the guys, not selfish and completely surrounded."
