Julia Roberts is inspired by her own daughter. The former Runaway Bride star is moved by daughter Hazel, for the reason that she is quite independent. The forty five year old star of movies such as Pretty Woman, My Best Friend’s Wedding and Erin Brockovich who is mother to eight year old twins Hazel and Finn and a five year old boy called Henry with her husband Danny Moder reveals that Hazel gives her the greatest drive because she is so independent.
She told People magazine:
”My daughter is my greatest source of inspiration. She hasn’t allowed herself to be shaded by popular opinion. She is her own person in every way, loving, tenacious, hilarious. The world is full of joy, openness and wonder to her.”
Roberts has also revealed that her children at this time don’t realize that she is a famous star, and would be happy if things stay this way. She explained:
”I was on a crowded street, and somebody noticed me, and then another person noticed. Somebody said as we were walking past, ‘Oh, that’s Julia Roberts.’ We all just kind of kept going, and then Finn said, ‘Yeah, my mom’s Julia Robinson.’
”That’s what gives you perspective. It could be Robinson, it could be Johnson, because it has nothing to do with me as a person.”
Roberts thinks that her children will no how to cope with her celebrity status since asking Grace Gummer – the daughter of Meryl Streep – about it. She said:
”I said, ‘How old were you when you realized your mom was Meryl Streep?’ She said, ‘I think I was probably nine when I put that all together.’ I said, ‘Were you cool with it?’ She said, ‘Yeah, it was fine. There was no trauma.’ So that was hopeful.”
