Julia Roberts is the one of the biggest superstars in Hollywood and yet has managed to maintain her reputation as the all American sweetheart her fans know and love.
The Oscar winning actress has had a string of high profile boyfriends including Kiefer Sutherland, Lyle Lovett, Benjamin Bratt before meeting and marrying cameraman husband Danny Moder.
Nowadays Julia prefers nights at home but still reigns as one of the leading actresses in Hollywood and appeared in the blockbuster film Charlie Wilson’s War that was released in 2007. Julia is also a regular feature on the Most Beautiful People, Highest Paid Actresses and the Most Influential Women lists - impressive huh!
The mum of three has a fantastic figure and even at 40 turns head like she always did. Read on to find out how Julia Robert’s achieves and most importantly maintains her weight
You’ll all know Julia from her worldwide breakthrough film Pretty Woman and consequent hits Notting Hill, My Best Friend’s Wedding, Runaway Bride and Erin Brockovich (and heaps more). In each of her films she’s managed to maintain a slim but natural looking appearance that leads many Mums to think HOW does she do it - so lets take a look!
Firstly Julia is the first to admit that her genes work well for her (that is her GENETICS not some miracle pair of Levis).
The 5 foot 9" actress says, ‘I have been working out, but listen, it is 97 percent genetics. Don’t let anybody tell you any crap about anything else, because that’s what it is: 97 percent genetics and 3 percent just get your ass moving. Because I’ve never met a cookie I didn’t like"
I love that honesty
Other than that Julia gets her "a** moving" with pilates, yoga and light weight training. In the past Julia has also worked with trainer to the stars Kathy Kaelher - nothing like a trainer to get you into shape.
Diet-wise Julia does watch what she eats but isn’t into crazy fad diets. The actress eats stacks of organic vegetables (that she grows at her super eco-conscious home in California) and fills up on healthy salads, snacks and grilled fish.
However the star admits she’s a big meat eater and loves a good steak. The actress says, ‘Danny makes the best steaks. I’m a total meat eater and I don’t know how people do all these fabulous diets - I can’t do that.’
Julia’s favorite foods include curries, biscuits and her favourite drink is reportedly a "Scorpino" which is a mix of vodka, cream, liqueur and Italian rice.
So there you have it - nothing miraculous just the usual healthy foods and exercise! Good on you Julia, looking GREAT
