Surgery-free Julia Roberts is still a Pretty Woman at 42
Surgery-free and proud: Julia Roberts proudly displays her wrinkles%0D
While rival stars don't hesitate to put their features under the knife, Julia Roberts proudly remains a surgery free zone. The 42-year-old actress, face of the cosmetic company Lancome, made no attempt to conceal her wrinkles at the premiere of her latest film.%0D
Asked about her decision to embrace the ageing process, she said: 'The secret ingredient of beauty is being happy. And maybe a little eye cream.'Miss Roberts, a mother of 3, found fame 20 years ago with Richard Gere in Pretty Woman.%0D
She railed against cosmetic surgery in a recent interview, saying: 'Your face tells a story and it shouldn't be a story about your drive to the doctor's office.'%0D
Miss Roberts was visiting Tokyo where she was promoting her film Eat, Pray, Love, about a 40-something woman who travels to Italy, India and Bali after going through a divorce.%0D
She has revealed that she is now a practising Hindu and goes to temple to 'chant and pray and celebrate'.Born to Baptist and Catholic parents, she is thought to have made the religious conversion while shooting the movie. %0D
She added that she hopes to be reincarnated as 'something quiet' after the stresses of celebrity.%0D
After failing to set box offices alight in the Western world with her new film, Julia Roberts will be hoping for a better reception in the Far East.So to possibly try to butter up her Japanese fan base, she took inspiration from the country's traditional dress.The actress arrived in a kimono-style gold dress, which showed off her tall, willowy figure as she took to the stage at the Roppongi Hills Arena%0D
Julia and husband Daniel Moder, 41, FLEW INTO NARITA AIRPORT ON A PRIVATE JET .And they plan to spend a few days exploring the country.%0D
Despite a film career that has spanned two decades, this is her first ever visit to Japan.%0D
Yesterday she held a press conference and photo call in Tokyo hours after arriving.%0D
But she avoided giving a proper answer when asked why it had taken her so long to visit the Land of the Rising Sun.She said: It's just my good fortune to finally find myself here in Tokyo with all of you nice people.'%0D
Beautiful picture at the link
Depsite the conventional thinking - I find her absolutely refreshing. She could teach Aniston and Jolie a thing or two about media gamesmanship and humilty.
>> FLEW INTO NARITA AIRPORT ON A PRIVATE JET %0D\
Isn''t that lovely? This is the bitch who constantly jets in on a private jet from her farm in New Mexico to Los Angeles every week or two. She only travels by private jets. And julia had the nerve to appear on the cover of Vanity Fair''s Green issue %0D\
She''s entitled to travel any way she wants, but she shouldn''t lie and says she''s green and she does this and does that for the environment, because she doesn''t do a damn thing for the environment. But of course, with all celebs it''s do as I say, not as I do
I read the comments under the photo and that is why today''s actress feel that they have to have a face lift. I think she looks great.
Say what you want about Jules, but she''s been famous for 20 years and never overweight.
Complete bullshit. She''s had obvious facial surgery, and she lies about it. She''s totally off putting.
"still" implies that she once was
We were once the same age, but she keeps getting younger than me.
[quote]She could teach Aniston and Jolie a thing or two about media gamesmanship and humilty.\
HUMILITY?! Are you fucking high?? Roberts is so NOT familiar with that word.
Why the hate for Julia?
She is using Botox and she had fillers done in her upper lip. Alright, so maybe that''s not surgery surgery, as Whoopi would say, but it''s work done on face.
I love the British. After Roberts comments that the secret to staying beautiful is being happy "and a little eye cream," David Niven of London says, "Use more eye cream."%0D\
They''re just funny.
No, it''s not r11.%0D\
If you''ve seen pictures of her as a kid and compare them to now, it''s all but impossible that she didn''t have work done along the way.%0D\
She''s not Raquel Welch, whom I believe when she says it''s all good nature and soap. Welch has always looked the same.
Sorry, Welch says its a lack of soap which reduces wrinkles on your face.
r10, Julia recently stated that she does NOT use Botox.
So, what if she said that, r15? Has any actress ever said in an interview: Oh, yes, I use Botox all the time.
Wow, what an admirable human being she is! Never mind being an adulteress and an untalented, phony, entitled bitch. No surgery? Excuse me while I LMAO. OP, you need to find an idol that''s worth your adulation. She isn''t it.
She''s preparing for the Oscarbait biopic Mr. Ed.
The women who do get plastic surgery, i.e. Aniston, don''t look better than Julia.%0D\
Just accept and be grateful you are still on the planet.
She is so damn ugly in that picture. That face could crack a mirror
Roberts is only 42? She looks close to 50.
She was never pretty
Tsk you queens are slipping OF COURSE SHE''S BEEN DONE! She has a refreshed look not a done look. A very subtle job she and Sandy''s surgeon did good.
Pee Wee Poundstone
I agree, R7. When I was a teenager she was 6 years older than me. Now she''s just under 3 years older. She can''t shave much more off, though, she''s already down to being only 20 years old when filming "Mystic Pizza".
Didn''t Farrah Fawcett used to claim the same thing? I seem to remember her on Letterman claiming she never had plastic surgery.\
Believe what you will, people.
People, Julia Roberts'' birth year has been listed as 1967 for years. A big deal was made about her back-to-back Oscar nominations by the time she was 23 years old.%0D\
The Daily Mail is so unutterably snide and horrible. Even in apparently complimentary articles like this, there''s an undercurrent of nastiness. I''d love the tables to be turned, and to see pictures of the bitches that write for it showing their revolting bodies on the beach, or their hideous bitter, deformed faces as they leave their houses in the morning.
She''s had a nose job--take a look at her in "Satisfaction". Her face has been sculpted.\
Granted, it''s good work & she has been avoiding the "Whatever Happened to Michelle Pfieffer/Jessica Lange/Meg Ryan?" look, but to pretend you''re full of wheatgrass & good clean living when you left bits & pieces behind is ridiculous.
Horrible actress, and I never thought she was particularly beautiful. I don''t think Jolie is that stunning either.
i love the daily mall. that picture that choose for julia couldn''t be uglier! ha!
>>>>Didn't Farrah Fawcett used to claim the same thing? I seem to remember her on Letterman claiming she never had plastic surgery.%0D
They all say they didn't have any work done, but they do. It's obvious and it was really really obvious that Farrah ruined her face. It was hard to look at her on the tv screen. %0D
Michelle Pfeiffer also had a lot of work done to her face. That's why no one has seen much of her anymore. That was a while back, but repug patricia heaton (everybody loves raymond)went on The David Letterman Show and spilled that a person who was on the cover of a magazine that week who just said she would never use botox or get surgery, actually just had work done and patricia knows it because she went to the same plastic surgeon. The very next day heads rolled and heaton issued an apology and a press release saying that she was sorry for any and every thing she said and she didn't mean to insinuate that Michelle or anyone else had any type of surgery%0D
I remember watching a clip of heaton and how proud - smug she was to spill those secrets to Letterman. %0D
Believe me, I''m no fan of Roberts. But since Mystic Pizza came out 20+ years ago, she has always been one year older than me. So I don''t think there''s been any fudging with her age.
No way in hell is she 42.
God, I hate Julie, the joker-mouthed twat...she''s an air-headed Gwinnie...same diff.
Julia Roberts'' birth year has not changed since she''s become a star, R35.
She looks like 42 to me.
I have a good friend from college (he''s 42 now) who got hooked on heroin in SF at the age of 24. It''s amazing how he''s retained his looks.
It is odd that she used to be three years younger than me, and now she''s two years older.
Catherine Zeta-Jones, pulling plugs around the house... just for practice
That "she''s still a Pretty Woman" line is hilarious; that picture of her is positively hideous! She looks like a deformed horse.
Elderly women (or "crones") were traditionally revered for their wisdom and insight in the tribes. I find that touching. \
Now, who is she again?\
Gwyneth P, off to record a hit single
Julia Fiona Roberts was born October 28, 1967 - which makes her 43 and one half years old as I type this.
Born October 1960, just turned 39
Even Joan Collins has said that she uses nothing more than soap and cream.\
Actresses are all liars about what they do to their faces.\
And who can blame them? They are in the business of looking young.
Look at photos of her in Mystic Pizza. She has NOT had filler work done on her upper lip. \
Frankly, I believe her. And I don''t think she looks that great anyway. As her face shrinks, her nose looks bigger and hookish. She is not willowy, but is developing a middle-aged body.
[quote]"Whatever Happened to Michelle Pfieffer/Jessica Lange/Meg Ryan?" %0D\
Love that Joker!
The Voice of the Night
I can''t say how I know without risking loosing my job, as well as any hope of another in my field, so please don''t ask, but she is lying. %0D\
She''s had TONS of Botox and fillers, as well as several minor facial surgeries and two abdominoplasty surgeries after her children were born. %0D\
Can''t stand the woman, but she was very smart about it and started the facial work at the right age so there have been no drastic look changes over the years. Her being out of the public eye for long periods of time have helped her in her "I haven''t done anything to my face" lies.
I believe you R47.\
What other names can you share? I''m convinced Katie Holmes is starting to get nipped and tucked.
Michelle Wil... er - Anonymous
I''d love to have 5 minutes with Patty Heaton and a baseball bat in a locked room.
"loosing my job"\
Unleash it unto the world, R47!
The Decline of Civilization
thanks for that r47!%0D\
I think her nose looks thinner
What''s really fascinating about this story is that someone who was born on October 27, 1967 is somehow reported as 42.
So she''s close to 50 right? Surgery free LOL! She''s not sweet. AT ALL. Maybe a pain in the aspartaines to her though.
Please stop using the word ''Hideous''. \
I now pronounce it ''Hid-jus'' and I fear I picked it up from one of you.

Do you mean she is a cheap, Hollywood Blvd. whore? I mean EAT, PRAY, LOVE was lamentable, but still...
Men just LOVE to put women down for their looks. You must have something to prove to yourselves since you have such a boner for doing that.
She is not that pretty.
I''m 54 and don''t have wrinkles like that.
I wish women weren''t so infantilized by our culture, then they wouldn''t feel the need to hack away at their faces. There''s nothing wrong with getting older.
Her big forehead veins scary. Angelina Jolie has the same problem.
She looks like Jennifer Garner''s mom.
[quote]What''s really fascinating about this story is that someone who was born on October 27, 1967 is somehow reported as 42.\
In August of 2010, she was still 42. Turned 43 in October.\
A few months ago I said she seemed to have shaved 3 years off her age, but I realize now I based that on thinking she had already had a birthday in 2010. She at most has shaved 2 years off her age. I''m less convinced of that than I was a few months ago.
She and my sister were the same age when she became well-known back in 1990, and she and my sister are still the same age today.
She could eat an apple through a chain link fence.
She has indeed had breast implants. And she still has a nasty, slovenly body. I bet she smells down there.
Nice tramp stamp. What does it say?
And, doesn't this thread just prove that Ashley Judd was right? An in-shape woman in her 40s is torn to shreds while doughier men her age and older are being given over complimentary appraisals.
You douches are a mess.
Her tramp stamp says Henry, Hazel and what I assume is Phineas and what looks like the head a dolphin, or a maybe killer whale? Anyway you owe me big time for looking at that so closely R68
I don't think she had a boob job. Her boobs grew from pregnancy, and then some weight gain.
"I bet she smells down there."
I bet so do you.
I've seen plenty of lamenting here about former hot guys who lost their looks in middle age, e.g., Val Kilmer and Cary Elwes.
And Leo, R73.
I'm enjoying R67 despite my claims to be a decent person.
"I've seen plenty of lamenting here about former hot guys who lost their looks in middle age, e.g., Val Kilmer and Cary Elwes."
It rarely reaches the feverish pitch of these demented rants. Or maybe an attractive rich woman with access to a hot cock just drives the envious queen over the edge? Yeah, probably.
But Julia didn't balloon up like those guys. She has a normal average body of a woman who had twins.
Pretty UGLY Woman.
I don't care that women or men do it, it just irks that they lie about it. Julia was recently quoted as saying she tried botox once and didn't like it. Then you see her at the AA and she can barely move her face. Courtney Cox is another one who said she tried it once and gave it up. It's so ridiculous when you're looking right at them.
It's like Lohan always claiming she was only at a bar because it was a friend's birthday. Why are you pulling my dick?
whatever. Sick of Julia's laugh. It used to be cute but she's looking haggard now. She's good looking but Ashley Judd always was cuter and is much sexier. Stop objectifying women at every turn. It's driving me mad.
My skin is nearly flawless, and at age 43, I do not yet have visible wrinkles that can be seen on television.
Why does Julia Roberts look so old?
R79, I had no idea Julia attended AA meetings. Do tell!!
The Academy Awards.
Oh believe me......she's had plenty of work done. Who's she kidding?
Hee! I read the title as "sugar-free"
Hate that horse-faced, husband-stealing bitch.
She's 44 now. She was born in October, 1967.
Courtney Cox looks like the joker but I haven't seen Roberts overbotoxed like that at all.
She's annoying, but in the pics at the link in OP's post she does look pretty good and and natural. Granted, that was two years ago.
Talk to the horse-faced, overly-teethy cunt in 10 or 15 years; see what the bitch says then. Oh, and she still won't be able to act.
There are more recent pictures of Julia in a bikini (one page prior).
R89 true true. Unfortunately, she left us her talentless niece Emma Roberts. Ugh!
I can't believe she wore the shirt that said "A Low Vera" (Vera being the name of her boyfriend cum husband's wife at the time) What a bitch.
I actually think Julia has talent. Emma does not. She and Hayden were the weak links in Scream IV.
I agree that Julia has talent, if not a lot of range.
When Julia gets closer to 50 we'll see if her view on plastic surgery changes. You don't start looking old until in your 50's. Of course, she'll lie about it then too.
I just love myself so much I can't get over it!!!
I'm 48 and she looks a hell of a lot older than me. I don't have the wrinkles like she does.
I'm watching Pretty Woman right now. Julia was gorgeous then. The few "extra" pounds she had then looked fabulous on her, and her hair was a perfect mane of curls.
She still looks great, idiots!
Freak at R98, quit bumping this thread. Julia is an old hag and looks it. She's probably had several surgeries since you posted the original thread!
I didn't post the OP. I was noticing what she looked like in Pretty Woman, when she was very pretty.
Shhh r95, Julia hasn't started 50 therapy yet.
R98 watching it too on AMC now. She was luminous back then. She really had that "it" quality that made her a star.
Her sexy rom-com days peaked with "My Best Friend's Wedding."
But she made millions upon millions and has three kids and a husband and hates the paps and publicity. In this days of celebs tweeting their whole lives on Twitter, it's almost refreshing to see someone who wants to keep their private lives locked down and out of the spotlight.
(ahem Jen Garner, Jessica Alba, Nic Richie and others who parade their kids out to the paps for profit).
I think she's one of the last true "movie stars." She did many a horrible thing in her young days but TMZ and the web weren't around to document her every move. She was very lucky. I'm sure she knows it.
R103 - I think Pretty Woman was her peak. My Best Friend's Wedding was a good comeback effort, but Julia was a little too skinny and haggard even then.
My Best Friend's Wedding was the only one of her movies I saw in the theater. I didn't hate it or love it. I've never been a JR fan, don't miss her at all.
Julia was good in The Pelican Brief, but that was more of a supporting role.
I think her peak was that polluted water movie, but she was already over-ripe by Oscar time.
42? The woman is at least 50.
She's 44 or 45. The thread is a couple years old. She's not 50.
