Background:It is near impossible to imagine anyone not knowing who Julia Roberts is.

Considered to be a beauty, cute, funny, talented, well liked and possess a million-dollar smile, Julia has it all. In 2004 Julia became a mother and had two Blockbusters released. Closer, a dramatic romance, places her in the limelight with Jude Law, Natalie Portman and Clive Owen, and the highly anticipated sequel to Oceans Eleven, Ocean's Twelve, will place Julia again in the spotlight with such stars as Brad Pitt, George Clooney, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Matt Damon. Julia blooms, over and over again, and chances are the Georgia Peach will always bear amazing fruit. "What changes with fame, I think, are perceptions of an individual, more than the individual." Boston Herald, Julia Roberts "I just don't feel that my algebra teacher should ever know what my butt looks like."
