Julia Roberts need no introduction. She is one of the top actresses from Hollywood. At one point of time (during 1990s), She was the highest paid actress in the world. She has also been named as one of People magazine’s ’50 most beautiful people in the world’ eleven times (tied with Halle Berry). Her dazzling smile and brilliant acting has made her famous throughout the world. She is one of my favorite actresses. Here are the top 10 movies of Julia Roberts (according to me):

Pretty Woman
Pretty Woman

1. Pretty Woman

This movie is my all-time favorite and one of Julia Roberts’ earliest hits. This is Julia’s most memorable role.She stars in this movie as the lead heroine opposite Richard Gere. Julia plays a prostitute in the movie who meets a rich businessman one night who is in the city on a business trip. He offers her to be an escort for some social events only to fall in love with her later.

2. Notting Hill

This romantic movie starring Julia Roberts and Hugh Grant revolves around the life of a simple bookstore owner whose life goes topsy turvy when one afternoon a famous Hollywood actress steps into his shop.

I'm also just a girl, standing in front of a boy, asking him to love her.

— Julia Roberts as Anna Scott (Notting Hill)

3. Erin Brockovich

Julia plays a single mother Erin Brockovich in this movie which is based on a real story. This unemployed woman becomes a legal assistant and almost single-handedly brings down a power company which is responsible for polluting the city’s water supply.

4. Runaway Bride

The hit pair of Richard Gere and Julia Roberts sizzle again in this movie about a reporter who is given an assignment to file a story about a woman who has left a string of fiancés at the altar and thus is being called by the local people as the ‘Runaway Bride’.

Look, I guarantee that we'll have tough times. And I guarantee that at some point, one or both of us will want to get out of this thing. But I also guarantee that if I don't ask you to be mine I'll regret it for the rest of my life. Because I know in my heart, you're the only one for me.

— Julia Roberts as Maggie (Runaway Bride)
My Best Friend’s Wedding

5. My Best Friend’s Wedding

Julia Roberts excels in this movie in her role of a jealous woman who wants to get her love at any cost. It is about a woman who gets an invitation from her long time friend for his wedding and this makes her realize that she loves him herself. She sets out for the wedding with the plan of jeopardizing it in order to win her love.

Eat Pray Love

6. Eat Pray Love

This movie is based on Elizabeth Gilbert’s bestseller book of the same name. It’s about a married woman who realizes that her marriage is not working and she needs to get out of it. After a painful divorce, she takes a year long hiatus which takes her to Itlay, India and Bali where she ultimately finds her true love. During the filming of this movie in India, Julia Roberts converted to Hinduism.

7. Ocean’s Eleven

This movie has an impressive star cast of George Clooney, Brad Pitt and Julia Roberts. This is an interesting thriller about Danny Ocean and his eleven accomplices who plan to rob three Las Vegas casinos simultaneously.

	Stepmom
Stepmom

8. Stepmom

This touching movie is about a terminally ill woman who settles for her ex-husband’s lover who will now become her children’s stepmom.

You know it's love when all you want is that person to be happy, even if you're not part of their happiness.

— Julia Roberts

9. Monalisa Smile

This movie is about an Art professor who teaches conservative 1950s girls to question their traditional roles.

      Oh, I just remembered another favorite of mine by her - Sleeping with the enemy- Where she faked her own death in order to escape her abusive marriage. She was phenomenal in that movie.

      I loved- My best friends wedding, and Pretty woman, but the Runaway bride, was one of the funniest movies I ever saw. I'm holding in my giggles as I type this and I'm thinking about the scene where she was coming down the isle on a horse and instead of stopping at the alter she and the horse galloped away.

      Have you seen The Wedding Crashers? Now when I went to see that with my date the whole theatre were in stitches.

      Thanks for taking me back and giving me a good laugh in the morning. Excellent review.

      @Bill Notting Hill is one of the best romantic movies I have seen. Hugh Grant and Julia look so good together in the film.
