Biography of Julia Roberts

Julia Fiona Roberts (born October 28, 1967) is an American actress, producer, and model. She was born in Smyrna, Georgia. Her parents, Betty Lou Bredemus and Walter Grady Roberts, were actors and had an acting school. In 1972, her parents separated and her mother remarried, but also divorced in 1983. Despite the separation, Julia maintained a close relationship with her father until his death in 1977 from throat cancer. The loss of her father and later, the death of her half-sister from an overdose in 2014, brought her even closer to her siblings.

The beginnings of her acting career

Julia attended Fitzhugh elementary school and then Campbell high school. Initially, she had intended to study veterinary medicine, but ended up studying journalism. After graduating, she moved to New York in search of work, but surprisingly had the opportunity to play a small role in “Firehouse,” without being credited. The performance sparked her interest in acting, so she decided to start her career in 1987. With the help of her brother Eric, who was also an actor, he contacted Peter Masterson to get her a role in the drama “Blood Red” (1989), which was not successful.

Roberts had to work various jobs while trying to get roles in theatrical productions: she took care of children, worked as a waitress at a pizzeria, sold in a store, among other things. She decided to study acting, but often could not attend classes due to a lack of money. She had the opportunity to participate in off Broadway theatrical productions and appeared in some television shows such as “Miami Vice,” “Friends,” and “Murphy Brown,” as well as in some minor films like “Firehouse,” “Baja Oklahoma,” and “Satisfaction” (1988). That same year, she got a better role in “Mystic Pizza,” directed by Donald Petrie.

Thanks to her talent, she was noticed by director Herbert Ross, who offered her a co-starring role in the film “Steel Magnolias” (1989). For this role, she was nominated for a Golden Globe and an Academy Award. Two years later, she was also nominated for these awards for her role in “Pretty Woman,” a film that gave her worldwide fame. In addition to being mentioned in many magazines for her good performance, her romantic relationships with actors Liam Neeson, Kiefer Sutherland, Matthew Perry, Dylan McDermott, and Jason Patric were also widely reported and became mandatory reading in waiting rooms and beauty salons. It was even said that Julia used her romantic relationships to obtain roles in various productions.


Later, the beautiful actress married Lyle Lovett, whom she met during the filming of The Player (1992). The marriage ended a few years later. Again, in the mid-2001, she ended her relationship with Peruvian actor Benjamin Bratt after four years of stable relationship, she met him in an episode of the series Law & Order, in which she was a guest star. At one point, Roberts’ career remained at its peak, which is why she received important awards and honors.
