Julia Roberts talks about not being starred in a rom-com in 20 years

According to The New York Times, as Julia Roberts is gearing up for the release of her upcoming romantic comedy film, Ticket To Paradise, she opened up about the fact that she hasn't been a part of any romcoms in the last 20 years of her career. While explaining the same, she stated, "People sometimes misconstrue the amount of time that’s gone by that I haven’t done a romantic comedy as my not wanting to do one. If I had read something that I thought was that Notting Hill level of writing or My Best Friend’s Wedding level of madcap fun, I would do it. They didn’t exist until this movie that I just did that Ol Parker wrote and directed.”

Furthermore, she even mentioned that apart from not finding any good rom-com scripts over the years, the bar was also raised because her three children were growing up. She then stated how she had a sense of great pride in being home with her family and considering herself a homemaker. "That raises the bar even more because then it’s not only ‘Is this material good?’ It’s also the math equation of my husband’s work schedule and the kids’ school schedule and summer vacation. It’s not just, ‘Oh, I think I want to do this.’ I have a sense of great pride in being home with my family and considering myself a homemaker," she added. 

Moreover, she even opened up on the rumour about her smile being insured and expressed her amazement at how one could do that. she even exclaimed that if that was true, there would be someone at her house on a nightly basis saying, ‘You need to floss longer.'”
