Her parents ran a small workshop for actors and writers in Piedmont Park Atlanta. Little Julia had a tragic childhood. When she was only four years old her parents got divorced because of financial difficulties. At the age of ten Julia’s father, Walter, died of cancer. From Internet reference: In school children teased her because of her thick glasses and her big mouth. Just three days after receiving her diploma from Campbell High School, she joined her sister, Lisa, in New York City, intent on becoming an actress. I had convinced myself that I had three choices, she said in an interview with Myra Forsberg for The New York Times (March 18, 1996). I could get married, I could go to college, or I could move to New York. Nobody was asking to get married, And I didn’t want to go away to school, so I moved. She made the right choice. Julia modeled first and later she became an actress. Released in March 1990, Pretty Women was the most
Successful romantic comedy at the box office in recent film history (Wayne Wilson 12). The papers wrote about her and the whole world talked about her. As statistics show, superstar Julia Roberts is the highest-paid actress in history. According to The New York Times, Julia is the only female star who can pull in $100 million in domestic ticket sales in movie after movie (Wilson 5). In an interview from the Celebrity Profile program, I have learned that when not working, Julia divides her time between a house that she owns in Los Angeles and a ranch in Montana that she shares with the actor Kiefer Sutherland, who was one of her costars in Flatliners. While Julia Roberts continues to charm the world with her beautiful smile, my second hero Anna Kournikova has become one of the best tennis players currently.”
