Julia Roberts – Exclusive Interview – ‘Wonderland’

Sitting in an airy hotel suite, with a breeze tickling her godlike blonde mane, her smile as bright and dazzling as the sun, Julia Roberts emanates movie star. It’s coming from her perfect miniscule pores.

She takes a sip from a glass with those perfectly plump lips while her chocolate oval eyes glance her left side, taking in a whispered conversation between clipboard-wielding publicists.

Every mundane action is transformed by Roberts visceral star power presence. She is a true movie icon in the flesh.

Which makes it hard to imagine the Oscar-winning star of Pretty Woman, Erin Brockavich and My Best Friend’s Wedding could or would ever feel apprehensive around her devoted fans and well-wishers on the street. But it’s true.

“I don’t hate it but I try to avoid it,” she tells me. “It makes me feel nervous, maybe I’m shier than I realized, I don’t think I’m very good at that interaction. I get nervous. It’s always been that way. I’m not sure what to say.”
