Julia Roberts, did you ever do with drug addiction?

Julia Roberts, you are a legend . . .
What you have said I was a Lady?

legend, I said legend.
Oh, Lady would have liked that better. Put dead people. Or dead. I feel, however, myself very much alive.

In that moment, you believe to know what is to come. You expected it to be. They will smile, with wide mouths, and dazzling teeth. The most famous Smile in Hollywood, with Julia Roberts an audience of millions spellbound since her very first Film over 30 years ago. As the film's Director Garry Marshall, who catapulted you with "Pretty Woman" in the world public: "your Smile goes beyond everything that has life."

hard to imagine that you stingy it. Finally, everything is otherwise as you may think you know it. The Interview takes place in a Hotel in downtown Toronto, a huge ballroom, cool and almost empty. Only two tables in, in widely separated corners of the room. The a is reserved for Peter Hedges, the Director of the film "Ben Is Back", he is already there, and explains how he his story has come across a mother – just Julia Roberts – who is fighting in the Christmas night to her drug addict son.

but that handles this heavy topic with behänder ease, still leaves a little to wait. Long as it can go, now meets her Entourage, five, six people sit down on chairs that were placed along the wall. And then she enters the room, and it happens what has been described countless times, as soon As it occurs, on film sets, at Meetings, at parties, seems to be the temperature to rise. Here she goes quickly to the Director, tells him something in his ear. Then she flirts briefly with your people. Then she strides around the room, it is long and quite short, up to you: "Hi, I'm Julia. What can I do for you?"

Maybe explain, if you can't play this role just as well, if you were a mother of three children?
The actress in me would of course like to immediately shout out, that my performance would be exactly the same. Is Yes, finally my profession. But I also know that it is not so, because children change everything and redefine. You should not do that, you give back in anyway the best.

What attracted you to "Ben Is Back"?
it is the story of a normal family. You're in love, you have an understanding of each other. But at Christmas this Ben is there, you should be in a clinic. All react differently, all of the effort. But in the end the mother and her son have been left alone.

your son is eleven, her twins are three years older. It makes you never afraid of what could happen to them?
Yes, of course. But every family is in the 21st century. Century faced. It may be easy to not go crazy. If you would imagine really, what every happen to could, you would, too. Then you would have to got to the home, including anyone in or out.

did you ever do with drug addiction?
This is probably inevitable, in my old age. Everyone knows someone, a neighbor, a school friend, a family member.

she is now 51 years old. Married with the cameraman Daniel Moder, two guys, a girl. To the world, Julia Roberts arrived in Atlanta, her parents divorced early, she grew up with her mother. To acting, she has brought her nine-year-older brother, Eric Roberts, had at the outset of his career success and, for example, in "Runaway Train" (1986) for an Oscar, was nominated. The young actress was at the beginning simply as "Eric Roberts younger sister". Until they overtook him rapidly, he had to struggle with personal problems – it's possible that you meant with the addict family member, him and Julia just a legend, sorry Lady.

Smiling, but she has not in this Interview. Perhaps the subject is simply too serious. You need to know: films like "Ben Is Back" can occur in the USA only, if someone like Julia Roberts. Directed by Peter Hedges, a well-respected man who wrote the original novel and the screenplay for "What's Eating Gilbert Grape". The second main role of the addict, Ben, plays the son of the Director Lucas Hedges, a young star who excelled in films such as "Manchester-by-the-Sea".

And yet, the funding was secured, as Julia Roberts agreed to do. "It was the 11. By September 2017, when her text arrived message," says Peter Hedges. The Director you wanted to, because, as he says, could be fragile as glass and hard as steel. "It is only with your participation, the Film got a Chance to be by a lot of people seen. And it fits wonderful to my son. Even if you had to convince me."

Julia Roberts, why did you have to persuade the Director to engage his son?
Oh, the two have made a way to never work with each other. There is a long Version of the story in short: I sent the Director a picture with my own son, and wrote: look how well I can do it with Redheads.

you Make this more often?
no. But I am always. Since certain proposals.

you Want to define with this Film and the series, "Homecoming" of your career?
you See that? My last romantic Comedy I have played but felt twenty years ago. This is more of a journalist thing: It is true that I have less to do games, because I'm just like at home, there will also be enough. Then when I come out, it means that this summer I'm launching the career of new. I see it as a continuum.

Even if you play for the first time, the main role in a series?
For me, it is the Same. There's this new English word, platform agnostic, i.e., it does not matter to be told, in which the Form of good stories. Moreover, it was anyway not in control,, game watch movies a lot on the phone, and yesterday, the first episodes of our series "Homecoming have been presented here" in a huge cinema hall.

"Homecoming" is actually sensational, Julia Roberts plays in the ten episodes of 30 minutes, a therapist who treats home from the war coming, the soldiers in a new program. But there is a second level, in the same woman seems to be nothing more know of your experiences and traumatized. On a Podcast-based story combines Thriller elements, Humor, character studies, all in a compact Form. Were staged all consequences of Sam Esmail, whose Name stands for a different Series, "Mr. Robot".

The narrative forms in a series are different, is it?
For me, there really is no big difference. Clearly, it is necessary to note the rhythm, but that is less my Problem. I have it filmed like a movie. And I also insisted that Sam Esmail leads all follow the Director. The story is already crazy enough.

So make your influence also applicable here.
of Course, I would be stupid if I wouldn't do that. But I hope strongly that I do it for selfish reasons. But because I really have the feeling to serve the cause.

Like your Teenage children to go actually, so that you are Julia Roberts?
you don't know it, you're blind. And yet you do not bring the name of the Person dealing with you on a daily basis. In everyday life, in school, and so, I called Mrs. Moder, to my husband. Julia Roberts is not my artist name, he is familiar in our household. Clear calls from time to time someone on the street, "Miss Roberts". But even for me it takes in this Situation for a while, until I realize: That's me.

"I am." As she says this, she checks, whether one finds it funny. And exceeds, then the journalists Smile with your own Pretty-Woman-Laugh, engaging, contagious. In short: legendary.

Oh by the way, as Garry Marshall's "Pretty Woman" turned, should be offered the movie "3000" hot, after the price in dollars, the Richard Gere for his week with the prostitutes. The Studio then suggested to name the Film as the fashion at the time for a song classic. Also, "She's a Lady standing next to" Pretty Woman"".

goodbye, Lady Roberts. It was short, but nice.

"Ben Is Back" starting Thursday in the cinema, "Homecoming" is available on Amazon Prime
