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.

I saw the premiere before I left and I have to say, I was somewhat impressed. Of course it's not as good as BMW but I think they have good potential.

I was very impressed by the first episode of Doctor Who I watched which I believe was called "Rose". It was creepy  but with enough of a hint of humor that it made for an enjoyable and interesting program. Me and my dad will definitely be continuing to watch more and more episodes of Doctor Who in the future.

The answer, obviously, is Doctor Who. The show has technically been running for almost 51 years. It's  a British T.V. show about an alien with two hearts who has been living for over 1,000 years, with a time machine that can travel anywhere, or anytime, in the universe. But there's a catch to his machine, which is known as a T.A.R.D.I.S, (Time And Relative Dimension In Space): It is forever broken and disguised as a 1950's telephone box. He chooses not to fix it, despite the companions he travels with wondering to themselves, "Why doesn't he fix it? Why did he have to break it as telephone police box?" He also tends to attempt to keep the companions for as long as possible. They tend to keep him in check, safe, sane, and non-genocidal. After all, being 1,800 years old, and I'm just guessing precisely how old he is, can make you feel lonely, angry, confused, scared, and vengeful. He had to destroy his whole planet to protect the rest of the universe from being destroyed by his people and their age old enemies, the Daleks. He will forevermore remember that day, and as punishment, from the self concious weapon he used,will have to live through for a long, long time.
