It's no secret that Julia Roberts put acting on the back burner the minute she became a mom almost 19 years ago.
Of course, even Roberts' back burner was the stuff Hollywood dreams are made of. But there was no point following the birth of twins Hazel and Phinnaeus on Nov. 28, 2004, at which her children were not at the center of her universe. (And that really started ahead of their birth, a chance to play "pregnant Julia Roberts" having been written into 2004's Ocean's Twelve.)
"By the time we had kids, I had accomplished things and felt secure about that part of my life," the Oscar winner told the Wall Street Journal in 2014, the "we" being she and cinematographer husband Danny Moder. "I was so joyful moving into the family phase of my life in a sincere way."
In fact, "for a long time," she continued, the kids "weren't even aware that I had a job because I was home so much."
