  1. Easily my wife's favorite actress....I drag her to Bruce Willis movies and she drags me to Julia Roberts movies. Sadly it seems like the peak of her career has come and gone but she had an excellent run. With the exception of Steel Magnolias I have seen all of these movies it least once and in many cases multiple times....although we only watched Bore, Boring, Boredom only once has that was one of the few Roberts movies did not only "not like" but strongly disliked.

  2. Thanks for commenting Abstractor. Like Bullock I've only seen a handful of Roberts films, I guess I'm more of an 'action woman' fan, Jolie, Jovovich, Beckinsale. :)
