Julia Roberts Reveals Why She Shouldn’t Star in Romantic Comedies Anymore

Oct 22, 2018  •  Post A Comment

Actress Julia Roberts, whose impressive list of credits as a star of romantic comedies includes “Pretty Woman,” “My Best Friend’s Wedding” and “Notting Hill,” just to name a few, tells ET Online in an exclusive interview that it’s probably time for her to leave the genre behind.

In an interview with ET’s Keltie Knight, Roberts “admitted that she feels she’s had too much life experience to convincingly star in a rom-com at this point,” the story reports.

Roberts added: “Unless we [play] the parents of the people that are rom-com-ing.”

Roberts also told Knight: “There came a point in my career where people thought I had turned on romantic comedies, which — I love them, I love to be in them, I love to watch them. But sometimes, they just don’t work at a certain point of life experience.”

Roberts, who’s 50 years old, noted that age isn’t really the problem. “It’s not about age, it’s just about what people know that you know,” she said.

  1. What… people who’ve hit the half-century mark can’t (or don’t) have comedic, romantic entanglements?

    As someone with a good decade and a half (and who’s married to someone with almost as much) on Mz Roberts, I think she still has some life experiencing to do.
