Actress Julia Roberts Biography

Report By: Nina Rai

Los Angeles, 29 March, 2012:

Hollywood star Julia Roberts is grateful that she was thrust into the showbiz world in the 80s, as she considers modern fame to be one seeped in “meanness”, leading artistes to rehab.

The tall, lissome beauty has deftly handled numerous roles in the early days of her career. However, it was her portrayal of Vivian - a prostitute, in the romantic comedy Pretty Woman (1990) which won her huge accolades.

Pretty Women went on to rake in $464 million worldwide, catapulting Julia Roberts to global stardom. Speaking to Australia’s Sunday Telegraph on the present star system, the ‘Eat Pray Love’ actress declared “What’s new is that we live in a culture of meanness.”

According to Roberts, her personal experience with being famous 25 years ago was one of steady progression. However, she says, the current times is one of catapulting to instant success. “There’s the express elevator and there’s rehab and one leads to the other,” she opines.

Further, the actress admits she empathizes with the present bunch of upcoming stars, insisting there is intense “scrutiny” into their personal lives.

The dailystar.co.uk has been quoting her as saying “Everybody is trying to write something, everybody has an opinion. There’s too much scrutiny and there’s too many beasts that have to be fed. It’s a little bit crazy,” she adds.
