She is registered at the university of Atlanta to study in this field. But, after her studies, she quit the proffesion of jounalist. It's the Julia's brother and the Julia's sister that show her the career of cinema. She appears for the first time in the telesery Forever Young. She did an surprise appareance in an episode of crime story. And in 1986 it will appearance in another series, miami vice. But the first big step of Julia as an actress (in 1987), it is her first movie, fierhouse, after satisfaction and mystic pizza (first great success). One year passes and she joined her brother, Eric, on the movie Blood Red. In 1990, Garry Marshal (realizer) brings itself and offers to Julia Roberts
to interpret the role of a prostitute who falls in love with a billionaire
(Richard Gere) in the movie Pretty woman which enables her to gain the "
golden globe " of the best actress!

somethings to talk about, Mary Realy, everyone says " I love you ", Michaël

These are the 23 movies which made beautiful Julia Fiona Roberts, the actress to best pay of the United States (20 millions per movies). Today, Julia lives with her love Benjamin Bratt who, on his side, play from small (law and order) to the large screen (the next best thing)

Julie Fiona Roberts was born in Atlanta, Georgia, on October 28, 1967, at 12:16 a. After leaving the hospital Julia went home to 849 Juniper Street in Atlanta. Julia along with her Mother (Betty), Step-father (Michael Motes), and Sister (Lisa) moved to Smyrna, Georgia in 1972, where Julia grew up. Julia attended Fitzhugh Lee Elementary School, Griffin Middle School, and Campbell High School in Smyrna. Parents: Julia is the daughter of Walter Roberts who was a vacuum cleaner salesman, an actor, and a writer. Her mother, Betty Motes, was a church secretary and actress. Siblings: Julia has a sister, Lisa (born 1965), a brother Eric (born 1956), and a half-sister, Nancy Motes (born 1976). Lisa is an actress, and Eric Roberts is an established actor. Lisa was in "Something To Talk About" with Julia, and Eric was in Julia's first movie - "Blood Red."

Childhood: Walter and Betty wed in 1955 after touring military bases in a production of "George Washington Slept Here" (which was directed by Ron Howard's father - Rance). Her parents divorced in 1972 when Julia was only four, and her father, with whom Roberts shared a deep attachment, died of cancer when she was just nine. Julia has said that the death of her father altered every philosophy of life she ever had. While both of her parents were experienced in acting, it was Julia's goal in life to become a veterinarian. During her teen years Julia worked in a shoe store and an ice cream shop. However, following graduation from Campbell High School in Smyrna, Julia joined her sister Lisa in New York and set out for an acting career.

Hobbies: The actress has several puppies and a German shepherd-husky mix named "Diego." Julia's hobby is knitting, and it is reported that she knits on the set between scenes and even teaches those on the set how to knit. Julia's production company is named "Shoelace Productions" and is located in New York City and her film agency is ICM (International Creative Management); Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas is Julia's agent. Julia's publicist is Marcy Engelman of Dan Klores Associates located in New York City. It is estimated that she has grossed over $2.3 billion worldwide in her short career. Julia Roberts owns a duplex apartment in New York, a house in the Hollywood Hills, and a fifty acre retreat near Taos, New Mexico

Nick at Nite fans know that it's Mary Tyler Moore who can "turn the world on with her smile," but the famous grin of Julia Roberts, the Georgia peach who became America's Pretty Woman, is even more potent, according to veteran industry analyst James Ulmer. Roberts tops Ulmer's Y2K roster of the 200 "hottest" actors and actresses in the biz, due out in book form this fall. That refreshing blast of grrrl power is about all the good news James Ulmer's Hollywood Hot List: The Complete Guide to Star Power has to offer for gender equity advocates: Meg Ryan, at No. 8, is the only other woman to crack the top 20.

Between Roberts and Ryan, we find usual suspects Tom Hanks, Tom Cruise, Mel Gibson, Bruce Willis, John Travolta, and Brad Pitt occupying the second through seventh rankings. Leonardo DiCaprio and Will Smith round out the top 10, with familiar faces Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jim Carrey, Harrison Ford, Keanu Reeves, and Adam Sandler stacked up immediately below.

It's not clear where Demi Moore and Sylvester Stallone fit on the list — or whether they make the grade at all — but New York Daily News gossip maven Mitchell Fink says Ulmer singles out both stars for their tendency to show up for work with hefty entourages in tow. Fink also makes note of the book's bottom 10: Helena Bonham-Carter (No. 191), Halle Berry, Jean Reno, Vince Vaughn, Andy Garcia, Elisabeth Shue, Greg Kinnear, Geoffrey Rush, Ian McKellen, and, last of all, Steven Seagal.

Hollywood Hot List is an outgrowth of the author's The Hot List, an annual industry index that measures the commercial clout of nearly 2,000 movie stars and directors (filmmakers are excluded from the new book) from around the globe. Using the Ulmer Scale, the hefty guidebook rates stars based on such key considerations as bankability, professionalism, career management, willingness to travel and promote, acting talent, and acting range. The mass-market version is a slim, 240-page paperback available for pre-order from various online retailers for a mere $11.16. Incidentally, even hot lists are subject to our society's mania for comparison: Hollywood Hot List's Amazon.com sales rank is a less-than-sterling 1,308,579.
