Top 10: Julia Roberts

Julia Roberts has the type of smile us mere mortals could only ever dream of, and she lights up the entire room, building, universe whenever she laughs. To thank her for teaching countless people to love their curly locks and to celebrate yet another year we’ve all been blessed with her existence, we’ve put together our top 10 FAVE Julie Bobs films ever.
In no particular order…
Think Cinderella but with fewer mice and songs and more prostitutes and lies. Tbh, this film totally would’ve been improved by a few Disney songs though, so maybe they missed a trick with the whole talking mice thing…
“People put you down enough, you start to believe it.” (Kay, but how many asses do we need to kick for ya, girl?!)
This film starts the way every good romance does: by “accidentally” spilling something on the hot stranger you’ve been eyeing up for the past hour. If you haven’t done it before, you’re missing out. Grab a cup and get staring.
“And don’t forget… I’m also just a girl, standing in front of a boy, asking him to love her.”
My Best Friend’s Wedding
It’s all about how some dude is literally the luckiest person on the planet ‘cause Cameron Diaz and Julia Roberts both want a piece of him. But, consider this: who cares about him?! We want a remake where Julia and Cam-Cam tell the guy he ain’t shit and just marry each other.
“If you love someone you say it, you say it right then, out loud.”
It’s a moral tale about why you probably shouldn’t dump raw fish into your boyfriend’s car until you’ve met his sister. Unless he’s into that, we guess.
Also, did someone say pizza? Brb…
“You don’t monkey with tradition.”
Uh… so… love sucks and you either get hurt or die trying? Thanks. Also, pink wigs are always a good decision. ALWAYS.
P.S. Jude Law will never not be beautiful.
“I don’t love you anymore. Goodbye.” (… #Yikes.)
You’re about to learn how to look past the way someone looks and take them for who they are. You should’ve known that already, but we won’t judge.
This whole movie is full of quotes e’rrbady should print out and stick to their mirror… but…
“When given the choice between being right or being kind, choose kind.”
Or: “You can’t blend in when you were born to stand out.”
Or: “Auggie can’t change how he looks. Maybe we should change how we see.”
Or — IT’S REALLY HARD TO PICK, OKAY?!
Julia Roberts is too much for words – catch her with her lil wings and stuff as Tinkerbell. It’s weird if you’re not crying.
Side note: ROBIN WILLIAMS WILL STEAL YOUR HEART AND CLEAR YOUR SKIN AND FIX YOUR BROKEN FENCE AND STRAIGHTEN YOUR TEETH AND FLY RIGHT INTO YOUR SOUL.
“To live… to live would be an awfully big adventure.”
CUE TEARS *Justin Timberlake starts playing in the background*
Eat Pray Love
When a guy who looks a little like Yoda gives you a prophecy, YOU HAVE TO RESPOND. That’s the rule. We don’t make ‘em. Based on a true story, we’re getting some serious FOMO. (Why won’t Julia take us travelling with her?!)
“Listen… balance, my darling, is not letting anybody love you less than you love yourself.”
Julia ain’t here to play games. She’s here to crack the case wide open and save the entire world, pretty much. Wonder Woman who? We stan Erin Brockovich. Oh, and did we mention it’s ALSO based on a real story? Yeah. For real. We know.
“Ed, have a f*cking cup of coffee.”
(Those are some wise words if we’ve ever heard ‘em.)
Mona Lisa Smile
Everything is art. Can’t find art in something? Try tilting your head and squinting, it’s definitely in there somewhere. If you’re looking for a feel-good film to brighten up your life, this one has your name written all over it. It’s basically a self-help book, but a movie. And better.
“See past the paint. Let’s open our minds to a different idea.”
