Having turned 42 years old, the 'Eat, Pray, Love' actress feels far too mature to portray a lovelorn character as she says, 'I think I'm too old for those silly situations of unrequited love!'
thinks she's too old for romantic comedy movies. The "Pretty Woman" actress, who has five-year-old twins Hazel and Phinnaeus and three-year-old son Henry, with her cameraman husband Daniel Moder, admits she feels far too mature to portray a lovelorn character now she has turned 42.
"I think I'm too old for those silly situations of unrequited love! It becomes less plausible when you're in the 40s to be walking down in the hallways because a boy walks by! I've read a couple lately that are more original and more mature, but they just didn't seem to fit for me," she said. Julia has had a very extensive acting career, with movies including "Runaway Bride", "Notting Hill" and "The Mexican".
However, Julia doesn't mind taking work at a slower pace now she is a mother. She said, "I feel my reward for working 18 years before having kids is that I can take the time I need for my family between jobs. It's a great relief! You know, somebody asked me the other day and I said, 'God is great'. The world has been a gracious place for me as an actor and I can't explain any of it."
