There are so many Hollywood legends we love to obsess over (it’s true), but there’s no one we love more than Julia Roberts. And really, what’s not to love? She’s absolutely stunning, she seems to defy every single aging process thrown at her, she’s immensely talented, and she’s actually a really lovely person (which is not something we can say for other Hollywood legends).
Over the course of her career, Julia Roberts has starred in some of the biggest movies of all time – including Pretty Woman, Notting Hill, Mona Lisa Smile, Erin Brockovich, and Charlie Wilson’s War. We’ve spent countless hours fawning over her and her characters, because this Academy-Award winning queen has put in hundreds of hours of work into ensuring she’s one of the best in the business. So, we couldn’t even fathom the idea of Julia Roberts condensing her life’s work into one 10-minute segment. However, because she’s Julia Roberts and there’s apparently nothing she can’t do (not that we’re jealous or anything), she did just that.
Yep, with a little help from James Cordon, Julia Roberts recreated her entire career in 10 minutes. The star was visiting the Late Late Show to promote her new movie, Wonder, when the talk show host persuaded her to sack off the Carpool Karaoke, and bless the audience with this work of art.
I mean, this is just incredible, isn’t it? Over the course of 10 minutes, Roberts and Cordon reenacted some of her biggest hits – and some of them were pretty impressive, whereas others were just downright hilarious. With a green-screen behind them, a few cheap props and way too many outfit changes, these two have completely rejuvenated the world of Hollywood. Who needs million-dollar budgets and CGI when you have Julia Roberts riding a toy horse?
As if the whole recreation wasn’t awesome enough, the pair ended it in the best way possible – with a beautiful musical number from the epic My Best Friend’s Wedding.
We love it.
