Julia Roberts' Film Career Just a 'Hobby'
March 18, 2012
Knitting, hiking, horseback riding -- any of these could be considered normal hobbies, unless you're Julia Roberts. At the Mirror Mirror premiere on Saturday, the star revealed to Brooke Anderson that being an Oscar-winning actress has become a secondary activity since starting a family.
Julia indicated that she puts her kids over everything when asked how she balances motherhood and career, saying, "I have a family and I have a hobby," through her trademark, million-dollar smile.
"When you have Julia you just work around her kids' timing. That's all you have," director Tarsem Singh agreed.
The new film provided the perfect family night for celebs, as they migrated to the Grauman's Chinese Theatre for the rainy Hollywood premiere.
"[My dad] flew in for this and I'm going to be sitting in between him and my mom," said Lily Collins, the daughter of Phil Collins. "It's just so amazing to have both my parents here."
In Mirror Mirror, a fantasy comedy based on Snow White, Julia plays Queen Clementianna, the insecure queen who's determined to supplant Snow White (Lily Collins) as the fairest of them all in an attempt to woo Prince Andrew Alcott (Armie Hammer).
"Snow White is so iconic, and I took [my kids] to see Snow White, when they were growing up, about a bazillion times," said Kris Jenner who walked the red carpet with her daughter Kylie. "It's one of [Kylie's] favorites, so she wanted to come see it and I'm the chaperone today."
