“It’s unfortunate that we live in such a panicked, dysmorphic society where women don’t even give themselves a chance to see what they’ll look like as older persons. I want to have some idea of what I’ll look like before I start cleaning the slates. I want my kids to know when I’m pissed, when I’m happy, and when I’m confounded. Your face tells a story… and it shouldn’t be a story about your drive to the doctor’s office.”  – Julia Roberts

    She looks absolutely amazing, and I don't doubt her one bit – I stalked that movie screen for even an inkling of plastic surgery in Eat, Pray, Love, and I think she's resisted any temptation for it. She is aging very gracefully!

    i love that woman, so timelessly elegant and poised.
    she came into the sports store my boyfriend manages in LA and he said she was totally laid back and sweet. oh, and here are the answers to all the must know girly questions i grilled him with.
    1. she was wearing a "bohemian-looking dress" with tights
    2. she bought soccer cleats for her kids.
    3. her smile really is that big in real life.

    Well said, Julia (ironically, I'm reading this as I watch the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills… the antithesis of her quote).
