Ju­lia Roberts Happy at 50

On the eve of her 50th birthday, the Hollywood star is hap­pier and more in love with her hus­band than ever

Woman’s Day (Australia) - - Contents -

Barefoot, sun-kissed and look­ing even more beau­ti­ful than ever, Ju­lia Roberts couldn’t stop smil­ing as she walked hand-in­hand with her hus­band Danny Moder while hol­i­day­ing last month. And it’s lit­tle won­der that Ju­lia – who turns 50 this week – looked so re­laxed and con­tent.

Sources close to the Pretty Woman star say her mar­riage to cam­era­man Danny, 48, is fi­nally back on track, af­ter years of tur­moil and even spec­u­la­tion about a di­vorce ear­lier this year.

Open­ing up in a re­cent in­ter­view, Ju­lia ad­mit­ted she hasn’t al­ways been the eas­i­est of peo­ple to be mar­ried to.

“I was my pri­or­ity, a self­ish lit­tle brat run­ning around mak­ing films,” she says of the early stages of her ca­reer.

But it’s thanks to her hus­band of 15 years – as well as her role as a mum to three beau­ti­ful chil­dren – that she’s evolved into the per­son she is today.

“It was meet­ing Danny… find­ing my per­son,” Ju­lia says.

“When I think about what makes my life my life, and makes sense and just shine in­side of me, it’s him. Ev­ery­thing has come from that for me,” adds the dot­ing mum of twins Hazel and Phin­naeus, 12, and 10-yearold Henry.

In fact, Ju­lia says she is so ded­i­cated to her fam­ily and to mak­ing her mar­riage work that she’s pur­pose­fully put her ca­reer on the back­burner.

“I just wait to see what comes along, as op­posed to look­ing for it. It makes it fun and or­ganic,” she says of her out­look on tak­ing new roles and her new pri­or­i­ties.

As for her up­com­ing 50th birthday, Ju­lia couldn’t be hap­pier with her stage in life.

“There are great things I’ve ac­com­plished and I’d be happy to ac­com­plish more, of course, to im­press my chil­dren and my hus­band,” she adds. “But you know what? I’ve been spoilt al­ready.”

The ac­tress re­cently joined her er hus­band in Split, Croa­tia, where he’s work­ing on a Net­flix show. Ju­lia says she finds her re­la­tion­ship with Danny “fas­ci­nat­ing”.
