Julia Roberts: on Husband, Family and Twins Ready to Start School


As Julia Roberts enjoys the spotlight with the premiere of her latest film Eat Pray Love, she’s preparing herself for some big changes in her personal life.

Her two eldest children are starting school.

The 42-year-old actress, who is mom to 5-year-old twins, Hazel and Phinneaus and 3-year-old Henry with husband Daniel Moder, is getting ready to send her first-borns to school something which she admits to having “bittersweet” feelings about.

“Am I finding it hard? Yes and no,” Julia said. “I think it’s bittersweet, I’m sure, but I think for them, they don’t want to go and Henry does wanna go!”

“I’m in the middle,” she adds.

I can empathize with Julia as my eldest is starting Grade 1 which means he’ll be in school all day every day.

Gracing the cover of September’s Elle magazine, Julia opens up about her family with husband Danny Moder.  

“The children became the shooting stars of him, of that thing we have. How lucky we are that we love each other so much that we burst into three pieces.”

Julia and her husband Daniel, who recently celebrated their 8-year wedding anniversary, met on the set of The Mexican in 2000.
