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)

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."
