Julia Roberts claimed she considers herself a homemaker in a recent interview, explaining why she hasn’t featured in a romantic comedy in 20 years.
The actor was astonished to learn that she hasn’t produced a romcom in a long time when speaking with The New York Times about her new series Gaslit.
The Notting Hill star said, “I consider myself a homemaker.” “It can’t be 20 years, can it?” says the narrator. Here’s the thing: I would have done something if I had believed it was good enough.”
“But I also had three kids in the last 18 years,” the 54-year-old mother of three added. This raises the bar even higher since it’s no longer just a question of ‘Is this stuff good?’ It’s also a math equation including my husband’s work schedule, the school schedules of my children, and summer vacation. It’s not as simple as saying, “Oh, I believe I want to do this.”
Roberts went on to say that she wasn’t avoiding romantic comedies on purpose, but that she couldn’t find anything nice that she was interested in performing.
In 2002, the actor married cinematographer Daniel Moder. Phinnaeus and Hazel, 17-year-old twins, and Henry, 14-year-old boy, are the couple’s three children.
