OVERWORKED & UNDEREATING
Are marriage woes and a crazy work schedule taking their toll on this fading star?
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.”
