OVER­WORKED & UNDEREATING

Are mar­riage woes and a crazy work sched­ule tak­ing their toll on this fad­ing star?

NW - - News In A Flash! -

We hope there’s some food in that trol­ley, Ju­lia Roberts – ʼcos you’re look­ing a touch too thin for our lik­ing.

With her new Ama­zon TV se­ries Homecoming about to de­but, and fresh off re­ports of a flare-up in her feud with fel­low A-lis­ter Jen­nifer Anis­ton, Jules was look­ing scrawnier than ever as she shopped in Mal­ibu on Oc­to­ber 16.

But as the ac­tress’s dra­matic weight loss prompts con­tin­ued concern among friends, they’re all point­ing to the same cause – strife in her 16-year mar­riage to Danny Moder.

“Ju­lia and Danny have been plagued by ru­mours of an im­pend­ing di­vorce for years,” an in­sider tells NW. “They’ve had a lot of ups and downs and... can’t over­look some of the big­ger prob­lems that they’ve been deal­ing with.”

Ju­lia, 50, re­cently con­firmed that she “went down a pant size” while film­ing Homecoming. And ac­cord­ing to the in­sider, it’s be­lieved she’s dropped to about 45kgs in re­cent weeks – a pal­try amount on her 175cm-tall frame.

“She has a lot on her plate and has been work­ing like crazy. She’s try­ing to keep her ca­reer and her mar­riage afloat at the same time, but it hasn’t been easy.”

Ju­lia wed cin­e­matog­ra­pher Danny, 49, in 2002, and they have three kids – twins Hazel and Phin­naeus, 13, and Henry, 11. But now it looks as if the fam­ily ties might be fray­ing.

“Ju­lia’s scaled back her long hours so she could be there for din­ner each night,” says the in­sider. “But sadly it might not be enough to get her and Danny back on track.”

The ac­tress looked pen­sive while gro­cery shop­ping alone in Mal­ibu Ju­lia’s gaunt ap­pear­ance has be­come a cause for concern among pals
