Julia Roberts plays an evil queen who will go to painful extremes to retain her youthful appearance in her upcoming film, “Mirror Mirror,” but the 44-year-old star says Botox just isn’t for her in her everyday life.
“Do you worry about trying to stay young in Hollywood? Do you try to do anything?” Kit Hoover asked Julia Roberts on Wednesday’s Access Hollywood Live. “I tried the Botox one time and was permanently surprised for a couple months and it was not a cute look for me.”
“My feeling is, I have three children who should know what emotion I’m feeling at the exact moment I’m feeling it,” Julia told Kit and Billy Bush. “Like, that is critical.”
“So true,” Kit agreed.
“As a mother it’s whatever works for the person,” Julia continued. “I don’t want to judge somebody who can’t turn their head or move their lips. I don’t know — if you want your chin on your forehead I’m not one to [judge]. If that’s going to bring you joy, I’m all for it.”
While the Academy Award-winning actress is a Hollywood legend, when it comes to hanging out at her children’s school(Julia has three kids with husband Danny Moder – twins Hazel and Phinnaeus, 7, and Henry, 4), she’s usually referred to simply as “Mrs. Moder.”
“Or Finn and Hazel’s mom,” Julia added, of her everyday nicknames. “’Hi, Finn and Hazel’s mom!’ Or, you know, ‘Lady.’”
“Mirror Mirror” – which also stars Lily Collins and Armie Hammer – hits theaters on Friday.
