Happy Birthday Julia!
Born in Smyrna, Georgia, to actors Betty Lou (Bredemus) and Walter Grady Roberts, Oscar winning actress Julia Fiona Roberts set out to be a veterinarian but coming from a family of actors, passion found her instead.
Undeniably one of Hollywood’s leading ladies!
The movie star who made her debut in the late 1980s television series Crime Story got her big break playing Daisy in Mystic Pizza (1988). The following year, Roberts cemented her status as a rising star in Steel Magnolias (1989), appearing alongside legends Shirley MacLaine and Sally Field, thereby earning an Academy Award nomination for best supporting actress and establishing herself as one of the highest-paid actors in Hollywood.
Roberts is known for such films as ‘Steel Magnolias,’ ‘Pretty Woman’ and ‘Erin Brockovich.’
