JULIA ROBERTS (Catherine/Francesca) is making her third appearance in a Steven Soderbergh film. She received the Academy Award and a Golden Globe Award for her portrayal of "Erin Brockovich," directed by Soderbergh. In addition, she starred with George Clooney, Matt Damon, Andy Garcia and Brad Pitt in last year's ensemble crime caper, "Ocean's Eleven," also under his direction.

"Erin Brockovich" followed the success of two box-office smashes: "Notting Hill," directed by Roger Michell in which she co-starred with Hugh Grant and "Runaway Bride," with Richard Gere, her "Pretty Woman" co-star and their director, Garry Marshall.

More recently, Roberts starred in "The Mexican," with her "Ocean's Eleven" co-star Brad Pitt and James Gandolfini and "America's Sweethearts," in which she stars with Billy Crystal, Catherine Zeta-Jones, John Cusack and Hank Azaria.

Roberts has starred in many of Hollywood's most successful films and has earned two additional Academy Award nominations. She first came to the attention of audiences with her critically acclaimed role in "Mystic Pizza," then in "Steel Magnolias," which led to her first Academy Award nomination. 

Her next film, "Pretty Woman," was the top-grossing film of 1990 and brought Roberts her second Academy Award nomination. Her memorable performance in that film was followed by a series of successful films including "Flatliners," "Sleeping with the Enemy," "Dying Young," "The Pelican Brief" and "Something to Talk About." Roberts also starred with Liam Neeson in Neil Jordan's "Michael Collins," and in Woody Allen's romantic musical comedy, "Everybody Says I Love You."

In 1997, she starred in the box-office smash "My Best Friend's Wedding," directed by P. J. Hogan and the Richard Donner directed thriller, "Conspiracy Theory" co-starring Mel Gibson. The following year, she starred opposite Susan Sarandon and Ed Harris in the Chris Columbus film, "Stepmom." Collectively her films have grossed more than two billion dollars worldwide.

Roberts will next be seen in George Clooney's directorial debut "Confessions of a Dangerous Mind" and begins filming Revolution Studios' "Mona Lisa Smile in September.
