Julia Roberts is arguably one of the best and most well-known actresses in the world. She has won three Golden Globe Awards, been nominated for four Academy Awards and won a Primetime Emmy Award. Her films have earned an incredible $2.8 BILLION. So, what does Julia Roberts House in Malibu look like, how did Julia Roberts become so famous, what is she up to now, where does Julia Roberts live and what is her family life like? Let’s find out allllll about the A-list actress.
Where does Julia Roberts live now?
Julia Roberts was born in Atlanta, Georgia but relocated to the smaller Georgia town of Smyrna when her parents divorced when Julia was just 4 years old. After moving to New York as a young 20-year-old, Roberts now resides with her family in Malibu, California.
After rising to an A-list star and having a whirlwind acting career, Julia Roberts is now taking a small step back from the Hollywood scene and focusing more on life with her little family. Not to say she won’t act again (she’s filming now) but her personal life is not as in the spotlight as it once was. She even opts for local, quieter Malibu cafes over popular West Hollywood hotspots.
Roberts is definitely a fan of purchasing real estate. She has two homes in the desirable and sought-after Point Dume area of Malibu, California. The second home is located about 20 minutes away from the other two and has three bedrooms and one bathroom and cost the star $3.9 million.
This is a few million dollars off compared to her other property in the area. We’re not sure what the interior looks like as there are no available photos or descriptions, but we know that the new home is described as ‘cute’ and ‘private’.
It’s believed this is an investment property.
Julia Roberts House in Malibu
Julia Roberts main house is over 6,000 square feet home with a stunning view of the ocean. It’s literally on a cliff next to the ocean. She bought it for $6.4 million in 2003.
From the street there is no view whatsoever – security is legit – but the gate alone is beautiful. The robust wooden gate is attached to stone walls that wrap around the property and bougainvillea vines drape the entrance.
The exterior of the home is very unique. Wooden beans line the roof giving the home a teak/beach/Asian vibe. It’s hard to explain.
What’s the one thing her house is missing? PHOTOS!!!! The interior is a mystery, but we’ll stay on it and update you when they surface!
She also owned another Malibu home across the street for a while. It was purchased for $6.84 million in 2015, then sold to her billionaire neighbor in March 2020 for $8 million. The 1950’s style ranch house is conveniently located just across the street from her first Malibu property. I mean, with a net worth of $140 million, what’s the big deal right?
The former home features a large circular driveway which allows the front of the property to be more hidden and private, as well as 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms – which is certainly a little different from her ocean view home which boasts 5 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms.
The ranch has wooden floors, exposed wooden beams, and beautiful wooden ceiling features. Outside includes a patio and BBQ perfect for a summer’s day, as well as fruit trees, lavender garden, and gorgeous gazebo. Sounds luxurious!
Roberts has also owned real estate in many other places, including a holiday home in Hawaii, a getaway in New Mexico, and a penthouse in New York.
Where did Julia Roberts go to college?
Julia Roberts attended college in her home state at Georgia State University. Sadly she didn’t actually finish her degree as she made the incredibly lucrative decision to ditch further education and move to New York with her brother and sister.
The move to NYC was primarily made based on her dream to pursue an acting career in the Big Apple. Dropping school and dreaming big certainly paid off for the star, look at her now!
How tall is Julia Roberts really?
Julia Roberts is a stunning beauty who stands at 5 foot 8 inches (1.73m). Model worthy material, am I right?! 5 foot 1 inch ME is over here a little jealous.
Is Julia Roberts married?
Yes! Although Roberts has previously been linked to Liam Neeson, Dylan McDermott, and Matthew Perry, she has now been married for 15 years.
Roberts is married to hubby Danny Moder, a passionate and respected cinematographer. The pair started dating back in 2001 and have worked together on three separate occasions including the flim The Mexican.
Must be a little bizarre working with your hubby, right? Roberts’ says, “There’s comfort there, but also terror, which is a good combination. Terror because the person I want to impress most is looking right at me.”
Roberts admitted that before meeting Danny, ‘I was my priority, a selfish little brat running around making films’. Speaking of their relationship now, she told The Mirror, ‘When I think about what makes my life, and makes sense and just shines inside of me, it’s him. Everything has come from that for me.’ #Aww
And the pair still look just as happy as ever and were recently spotted hand-in-hand out and about in California, and all smiles at a brunch held by the one and only Oprah Winfrey.
What color hair does Julia Roberts have?
Roberts has rocked many a hairstyle over the years, and yeah, she has looked great in every single one (sigh). But her gingery-red locks in the hit movie Pretty Woman are probably one of her most iconic looks.
And guess what, it looks like she may be going back to her character Viviane’s roots (quite literally)! We kid you not, Roberts was recently spotted rocking the new red hair whilst on the set of a new film in progress, Ben Is Back.
We are told that this is to make sure her character fits in with her on-screen son who is a natural red-head. Let’s just hope the red look sticks around outside of her role, we seriously love it!
Her natural color? A pretty dark brown.
How many children does Julia Roberts have?
Julia and Danny have three beautiful children together including 12-year-old twins Hazel and Phinnaeus, also known as Finn, and Henry who is 10 years old.
Although Roberts is still keen and excited to star in more movies if the right role comes along, she says you’ll more than likely find her ‘in the carpool lane ferrying my kids to school’ rather than on a Hollywood movie set.
What was the first movie Julia Roberts was in?
Julia’s very first movie role was in a film named Blood Red. Although this was her first movie role, it didn’t do a great deal for her career as a superstar actress.
Why? Her role in the film only allowed her to say two words. She also landed a small role in the TV drama Crime Story. Then in 1988, her talent started to slowly become recognized as she was cast as the main character in the movie Mystic Pizza.
Then in 1989, she starred in the incredible film Steel Magnolias where she was nominated for an Academy Award for her performance. Her career was beginning to fly. But the real turning point in her career? You guessed it, the now timeless 1990 classic, Pretty Woman!
How old was Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman?
Born on October 28, 1967, Julia was just 21 years old in the 1990 hit movie. And did you know, it is rumored that Sandra Bullock, Kristin David, and Sarah Jessica Parker are said to have been offered Roberts’ role of Viviane, but all three turned it down?
Interesting choice ladies! Pretty Woman grossed a staggering $464 million worldwide and truly set the precedent for the future of Robert’s superstar career. Roberts was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Actress for her role as Vivaine.
Another HUGE role for Roberts was the 2000 movie, Erin Brockovich. Roberts won several awards and received a $20 million salary for her part in the film. This made her the first woman actress to ever receive this amount of money for one role. Woah.
Where did Julia Roberts go in Eat, Pray, Love?
Eat Pray Love is a 2010 rom-com based on the best-selling book of the same name by Elizabeth Gilbert. Based on Gilbert’s personal memoir, Roberts’ character travels far and wide to discover the meaning of life and marriage after experiencing a devastating divorce. During her travels, she visits Italy, India, and Indonesia. The movie wracked in an amazing $205 million.
The actual filming locations? You’ll be happy to know they filmed on location in New York City, Rome and Naples, Italy, Delhi and Pataudi, India, Ubud and Padang-Padang Beach in Bali, Indonesia.
