Moments before making her debut as Lancôme’s global ambassador, Julia Roberts was coming to grips with her new responsibilities, reports today’s Women’s Wear Daily. In a candid interview, Roberts talks about her role in her upcoming movie Eat, Pray, Love, owing her career to Garry Marshall, her new role at Lancôme and how having kids has changed her beauty regimen.
On being Lancôme’s global ambassador: “I think I have to stand up straighter and wash my face more,” Roberts laughed. “It’s kind of like every girl’s dream, really,” she continued, referring to her role with the L’Oréal-owned brand. “To be 42 and have three kids and be a working mom, it’s a great moment to be asked to do this and to be able to do it. I think it says a lot about Lancôme and what they stand for.”
On filming Eat, Pray, Love: “It was quite a huge undertaking. It was a little bit daunting, dragging three little kids around the world, but well worth it…It was really like the acting Olympics,” continued Roberts. “It’s been a long time since I’ve had a full-time acting job. I am really glad that I made the decision to go off and do that movie.”
On her beauty regimen after having children:“It kind of comes to a screeching halt. At a certain point in the future, I’ll pick it back up again…I think the nice thing about getting older is it forces you in a way to take a greater interest in your [beauty] regime. And so it’s a good moment for me to join forces with people who can help me.”
