“I am very flattered,” she tells PEOPLE’s editor-in-chief Jess Cagle in this week’s cover story.
Inside the 52 pages magazine, Julia is confessing about her happy 14-year marriage to cinematographer Danny Moder, her life with twins Hazel and Phinnaeus, 12, and Henry, 9, and the secrets of her ageless beauty, in an interview with Cagle and PEOPLE’s style and beauty director, Andrea Lavinthal. Roberts was just 23 when she first appeared on the cover of the World’s Most Beautiful issue in 1991.
She was born in Smyrna, Georgia, to Betty Lou (Bredemus) and Walter Grady Roberts, one-time actors and playwrights, and is of English, Irish, Scottish, Welsh, German, and Swedish descent. She became a Hollywood star after headlining the romantic comedy Pretty Woman (1990), which grossed US $464 million worldwide. She has won three Golden Globe Awards (out of eight nominations) and has been nominated for four Academy Awards for her film acting, winning the Academy Award for Best Actress for her performance in Erin Brockovich (2000).
