Julia’s legs… pre-50!

Julia Roberts turns 50 in October. And this has become one of Duana’s favourite things to do this year – put on her Oprah voice and shout out, “Julia at 50!”

Here’s Julia, pre-50, at a photo shoot in Malibu yesterday in just a blazer over stockinged legs. Those famous legs. Vivian’s legs.

“Did I mention that my leg is 44 inches from hip to toe, so basically we’re talking about 88 inches of therapy, wrapped around you for the bargain price of three thousand dollars.”

I know you know what that means. But just in case you needed a reminder:

Julia’s gearing up for a possibly big second half of the year. In addition to her milestone birthday, she has a new movie coming out called Wonder. Wonder was initially due for release in April which is why, presumably, she was named PEOPLE’s Most Beautiful Woman around that time. But after early screenings, Wonder became the most highest-testing film in Lionsgate history so the studio decided to push the film back to November and holiday season. Also awards season. Have you seen the trailer yet? It came out a couple of weeks ago. And while it’s not my jam, it’s perfect for that time of year, for families, for something to feel good about.

And it’s perfect for Julia Roberts. Who has said she needs it to be that special, the work, if she’s to leave her kids and go back to set. Who has not been a legitimate Oscar contender in a while. I mean she was nominated a few years ago for August: Osage County but that was Lupita’s Best Supporting Actress run, and as soon as Lupita stepped out at the Golden Globes in that caped red Ralph Lauren, it was over for anyone else.

If Wonder is one of those movies though, like The Blind Side, that brings in audiences and makes them cry, well, and just as Julia Roberts is riding that “I’m 50!” storyline, she could put in a run though. And look at that smile. After all this time, that smile is still pretty powerful.
