JULIA ROBERTS (Samantha Barzel) is an award-winning actress and one of the film industry's top female box office stars of all time, whose films collectively have grossed more than two billion dollars worldwide. She recently won a Golden Globe Award for her work in the title role of Steven Soderbergh's "Erin
Brockovich," and just received a Best Female Actor nomination from the Screen Actors Guild. Her performance has also brought her Best Actress honors from several critics organizations, including the Los Angeles and Broadcast Film Critics, and the National Board of Review.
Roberts had previously garnered two Academy AwardÂ® nominations, the first in 1990 for Best Supporting Actress for her work in "Steel Magnolias." The following year, she received a Best Actress nod for her role opposite Richard Gere in "Pretty Woman," directed by Garry Marshall. In addition, she won Golden Globe Awards for both roles, and has since garnered Golden Globe nominations for her work in the hit romantic comedies "Notting Hill," opposite Hugh Grant, and "My Best Friend's Wedding."
She first caught the attention of critics and audiences in the sleeper hit "Mystic Pizza." "Steel Magnolias" and "Pretty Woman" followed, the latter of which became the top-grossing film of 1990. Roberts went on to star in such diverse films as "Flatliners," "Sleeping With the Enemy," "Dying Young," "Hook," "The Pelican Brief," "Something to Talk About," "Michael Collins," and Woody Allen's "Everyone Says I Love You."
More recently, Roberts starred opposite Mel Gibson in Richard Donner's thriller "Conspiracy Theory," and with Susan Sarandon and Ed Harris in "Stepmom," directed by Chris Columbus. She also reteamed with her "Pretty Woman" co-star Richard Gere and director Garry Marshall for another successful romantic comedy outing, "Runaway Bride." Roberts next stars in "Ocean's Eleven," reuniting her with "Erin
Brockovich" director Steven Soderbergh, as well as Brad Pitt. She is currently filming "America's Sweetheart," for director Joe Roth.
