A smile to fall, a laugh that makes you want to love and talent actress who is more established, Julia Roberts celebrated his 50 years little, and we decided to revisit his romantic career through 10 films of love in which the beautiful played.
“Mystic Pizza” – 1988
In this movie, Julia Roberts plays one of her first roles, that of Daisy, a young woman who is bored in her small town of American campaign. Fortunately for her, she is well surrounded by his sister and their best friend. The film is a small friendly Chronicle that deserves to take the time to look.
Here’s the movie that burst Julia Roberts on the big day. A derisory budget for a box office success worldwide that has propelled the young actress on the front of the stage, while reinvigorating the romantic kind. According to legend, many well-known actresses have declined the role of Vivian, this prostitute who meets and falls in love with a rich man. Too bad for her, well done Julia.
It takes a few years to see Julia Roberts returned to the domain of the romantic comedy after the “Pretty Woman.” She does with this touching and funny film in which she plays a young woman whose best friend (whom she loves in secret) tells him that he is getting married. Twenty years after its release, “my best friend’s wedding” remains a great value of the kind.
When we thought she couldn’t become a still greater romantic movie star, Julia Roberts decided to play in “maid in Notting Hill,” one of the jewels of the English romantic comedy. In the role of Anna Scott, an American movie star, she seduces Hugh Grant and our little hearts. Instant classic.
Ten years after “Pretty Woman,” Hollywood thought it would be nice to meet Richard Gere and Julia Roberts for another romantic comedy unconnected with the original. Here, Julia embodies a young woman whose specialty is to flee her marriage ceremony, what plot a journalist come to do an article on it. I don’t really like this movie, a little too long.
With a strong cast (Billy Crystal, John Cusack, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Julia Roberts), this pretty cynical comedy about the world of Hollywood still reserves Julia a chance to shine to make vibrate our little romantic rope. Anecdotal but still satisfying.
Maybe the film less funky and the more cerebral of the list, “Closer” brings together a cast of exception around Julia Roberts with Jude Law, Natalie Portman and Clive Owens in a chasse-cruises of couples and feelings, suitable a piece of theatre.
After a little break and movies more serious, Julia Roberts returns the camera to Garry Marshall for a choral romantic comedy around Valentine. His segment and the small role that goes with it remains nice, and we’re glad to find her in a successful romantic comedy (if so, nah).
Starting at the end of the world to meet, this is the program of “eat, pray, love,” adapted from the book of the same name. Julia takes advantage of this trip to fire his guy and meet others while finding an inner fullness.
This is a couple that we still wonder how they could not play together in a romantic comedy in the 1990s. But wait also did them good as “it’s never too late” is a great comedy romantic, funny and endearing, who puts in a good mood
