Julia Roberts is really annoyed with you right now.
“August: Osage County” star Julia Roberts covers the December 2013 issue of Marie Claire magazine photographed by Cedric Buchet and styled by Laura Ferrara.
Just bathe in her disapproving glare, darlings. Doesn’t it make you want to pick this up off the rack and put it on the conveyer belt next to your tampons and toilet cleaner?
On her career: “I think the reason I’ve been able to enjoy my career is that I always knew, for some reason – even when it was about getting a job to pay your bills and stuff – I always knew that it will surface, it will come. The things that are correct for me will come to me at the time that I am interested in them and have the capacity, the understanding, to do them.”
On social media: “It’s kind of like cotton candy: It looks so appealing and you just can’t resist getting in there, and then you just end up with sticky fingers and it lasted an instant.”
On her Oscar chances: “Listen, every actor wants to win an Oscar, full stop. It doesn’t mean you try to design things around how to accomplish that because that’s impossible. Now that I’m a grown-up person and have things of such greater value to pin my idea of joy and fullness on, if something like that were to happen again, my feeling of thrill would be defined in a completely different way.”
She always knew success and good things, correct things, were her destiny. Also, having to talk to the little people is gross and icky. And she’s a “grown-up person” now. Apparently she was some form of adult animal or insect prior to this.
Honestly, we’ll take a thousand relatively self-aware Gwyneths & Reeses over Julia, any day of the week. Gwyneth and Reese are hilarious in their judgmentalism and sorority girl bitchiness, and they both tend to own it on some level, but something about Julia just comes across … darker to us.
