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):
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)
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.
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.
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
