Another Julia Roberts thread

I know we've discussed her ad nauseum before but I was really dissecting her face the other night while watching Erin Brockovich, stuck out of town. I came to the conclusion that she is quite ugly. She can pass as reasonably attractive when her hair is done well and she has a pretty good body but that face is unfortunate. Her mouth is enormous and she has bad teeth. Anyone ever seen her up close and personal?

I think she's beautiful

At the Golden Globes her nose looked different - bad different. Like it was pinched.

She won't be growing old beautifully like Meryl

I've seen her briefly in person. She's rat-like, emaciated, looks pretty much the same as she does on screen just much scrawnier.

R10, sweetie, how long have you been dropping in on DL? We love talking trash about celebs especially ones who think they are something special when in reality they aren't even attractive enough to qualify as ordinary.

Which actor was it, maybe Hugh Grant, who claimed her mouth was so big that kissing her was like falling in a cave, or something like that? I thought it was pretty funny.

She's nutty. Years and years after high school (but before google) she'd have a private detective check in on a guy she went out on one date with in high school.

I never understood her appeal. A straight male friend of mine adores her and says it's her megawatt smile that makes her beautiful. Some folks are easily pleased, I guess.

I never got her. She is not beautiful, passably attractive but then her face got so gaunt, I always thought she looked better with some weight on her.

She's got a huge mouth and many pirhana-like teeth. Frightening.

by Anonymousreply 2004/12/2010

She was attractive enough when she was young, but she's not aging well.

Suddenly at age forty, her large mouth and strong jaw started to make her look oddly mannish, and every year she looks more and more like her brother Eric.

Let's not forget that she's a cunt

I was about to reply that women with really strong faces don't seem to age well (Brooke Shields), but then I thought of Vanessa Redgrave, who's aged beautifully.

In Julia's case, the pinched nose seems to be working against her. Her eyes are kind of dead. The smile is fake.

She was beautiful in Mystic Pizza. How many years ago was that?

I guess I'm the lone voice on here -- I think Roberts looked great in "Duplicity" and even though she never was a traditionally "beautiful" woman, her odd features somehow work on screen.

Just don't get me started on that "laugh" of hers.

by Anonymousreply 2704/12/2010

I agree with you for the most part, r27. She's not traditional-looking but that was never her appeal. She's incredibly photogenic, much more so when she was younger. It's definitely a case of the sum being greater than the parts. Pretty Woman perfectly captured her unique radiance.

by Anonymousreply 2804/12/2010

Like many people, I was fooled into thinking Julia Roberts was attractive in "Pretty Woman", where the hair balanced out and kind of hid the worst of her features.

I remember seeing the trailers for some spy-type movie she was in with Denzel Washington, and there's a scene [in a parking structure iirc] where her hair is braided and she's wearing sunglasses, and her mouth is so incredibly wide and bizarre, it shocked the hell out of me every time I saw it.

by Anonymousreply 2904/12/2010

The huge mouth and big lips are a Roberts family trademark.

Eric Roberts was quite a piece in his younger days. But his face was disfigured in a motorcycle accident and never looked the same again.

Both Eric and Julia Roberts are batshit crazy. Mental illness runs in their family.

that huge mouth and those sharp teeth come in quite handy for chewing on the scenery tho, R20, so overall its working out quite well for her.

by Anonymousreply 3204/12/2010

She's really a shit actress. You realize that once you see dailies, not cut footage (which I did and I was SHOCKED at how bad she is). It's a tragedy that someone with so little talent makes so much money.

by Anonymousreply 3304/12/2010

The problem is when a woman starts hitting her mid-30's, she starts losing fat and collagen in the face. So, it's a good idea to gain a bit of weight; like 5-10 lbs. Of course, Hollywood actresses need to remain as thin at 40 something as they were at 25, so most of them look like shit without the benefit of plastic surgery and hours of makeup.

She pays her husband an allowance every month. Any woman who pays a guy to stay has to be ugly.

That reminds me of that scene in Ocean's 11 when she walks into the lobby of the hotel and they do a full pan of her entrance and track the shot. It was awful. She was so graceless and awkward and we were supposed to be awed by her beauty and elegance much like Danny Ocean was. It also didn't help that in that scene the unflattering lighting gave her what appeared to be a mustache.

I still have a weird affection for Julia although it's dimmed over the years (A Low Vera, "I love my life!", etc. The same sort that I used to have for Tom Cruise before the crazy was unleashed.

Saw her walking from the location set to her trailer during the filming of the scene in My Best Friend's Wedding where she almost breaks up Cameron Diaz and Dylan McDermott.

She is very tall and had the skiniest legs (and calves) I had ever seen. While her hair photographed red in the film, it was strawberry blond in person.

It's disturbing how the tip of her nose almost goes into her mouth.

by Anonymousreply 5206/20/2010

I knew people at Time where she was being photographed for a cover in her prime (around the time of Erin Brockovich) and the one thing they all brought away from the photo shoot was how thin she was. Extremely thin. I do think she has that movie star quality of being ultra photogenic and, in her case, having a million-dollar smile (most exemplified in Pretty Woman). She can connect through the movie screen. I do think she has peaked and, although she can keep the career going through movies like Eat Pray Love that should have built-in box office, she's not on the top of the heap anymore.

by Anonymousreply 5306/20/2010

Funny that the only two times (IMO) she "connected" with the audience was playing a whore in "Pretty Woman" and an abrasive, pushy piece of white trash "Erin Brokovitch".

In r43's 2009 pic, Roberts looks great--- and that's coming from someone who can't stand her ass.

In his younger days, Eric Roberts was simply gorgeous, which is why I just love watching his 1981 movie, Raggedy Man (also stars Sissy Spacek).

I hate her as much as the rest of the DL, but I think that if she took roles that showed her nasty, cunty,evil bitch side (and we all know she has a HUGE muti-faceted one) she might actualy be a better "actress" than when she tries to portray sweet, nice, good women. She has to realize that no one buys her in these "good woman" roles any more. She's just not a good enough actress to pull it off. If she did start taking the bitch roles she wouldn't even really have to act, she would only have to memorize lines.%0D

Julia eats at my restaurant from time to time. She is by no means ugly. She is by no means beautiful. She is above average, maybe, but she is Julia Roberts. She has that star wattage, and I HATE her. But she just has it. And, she is shockingly nice to my staff. Tips well. Never complains.

I saw her backstage on Broadway. Her arms were not skinny, nor were her hips. But her neck was thin and ropy.%0D %0D She had major bitch face.

by Anonymousreply 6902/08/2011

I never thought she was attractive, when you look at each feature separately, she's quite fug.

Her mouth is too big, she has odd teeth, she has a strange shaped nose with big nostrils and her entire face is ferret-like.

At least she doesn't have those scary too-big Keane painting eyes like Anne Hathaway! But Robert's eyes aren't much better.

Her laugh makes my ears bleed, I've never found her laugh cute or infectious, just damn annoying.

All she had going for her was her mane of hair.

As for her acting, I was never a fan.

Eric Roberts was quite hot in his youth. His looks were ruined by a motorcycle accident that fucked up his face. Druga and alcohol didn't help, either.

Julia Roberts was attractive in that unusual Roberts way when she was younger; both she and Eric had good eyes and full lips and defined noses. And Julia had that big hair back then. I would never have called her drop dead gorgeous, but that was the way she was perceived by many. At any rate, she is not aging well. Those attributes that made her attractive back then, like the large wide mouth, don't lend themselves well to middle age.

I read some of a biography of Julia Roberts. I don't remember the author, but the book had a lot of information. To sum it up, Julia Roberts was/is slutty and bitchy. And her family was REALLY fucked up. I can't remember the details but Eric was really messed up by his upbringing; he developed a stutter in his childhood that was difficult for him to overcome and of course his emotional problems resulted in a very disturbed young man. I always thought he a better actor than his sister but he fouled up his life and career with his his erratic behavior and addictions. His loving sister distanced herself from him long ago, but supposedly is close with his daughter, who has inherited the Roberts big mouth and is intent on being a big movie star. It just goes on and on, in the way dysfunctional families do.
