Julie Roberts, Southern Girl

Julia Roberts was born Julie Fiona Roberts in Smyrna, Georgia. Her parents Betty and Walter Roberts divorced when Julia was four and her dad died when she was only nine. In 1985, after graduating high school in Smyrna, Julia Roberts joined her sis Lisa Roberts in New York and started modeling. Her brother, Eric Roberts, was an established actor and Julia landed a small role in his movie, Blood Red.

Julia Roberts' Big Break

In 1989, Roberts starred with some big-name actresses in Steel Magnolias and was nominated for a Golden Globe and an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress. Julia Roberts really hit super-stardom by playing a hooker in Pretty Woman (1990.) Since then, Julia Roberts has worked her way up to be the biggest actress in Hollywood. Some of Julia Roberts' other movies include Sleeping With the Enemy, The Pelican Brief, My Best Friend's Wedding and Conspiracy Theory.

Julie Roberts Wins an Oscar

Julia Roberts won a Best Actress Oscar for her incredible work on the real-life story, Erin Brockovich. She teamed up with Brad Pitt for The Mexican in 2001 and again in Ocean's Eleven with other hotties, George Clooney and Matt Damon.

Julia Roberts Celebrity Love Life

Julia Roberts has spent almost as much time in the spotlight because of her love life as she has because of her hit movies. Roberts has dated Kiefer Sutherland, Jason Patric, Dylan McDermott, Matthew Perry, and married and divorced Lyle Lovett, (does anyone know what that was all about?) It looked as though Julia Roberts would be walking down the aisle with longtime love Benjamin Bratt, but the couple split in the spring of 2001. Not long after, Julia Roberts married a cameraman named Danny Moder.
