Things You Must Know About Julia Roberts

Julia Roberts has been an A-list movie star for over 20 years since her iconic role in "Pretty Woman" back in 1989. Since then she has won an Oscar, started a family, and kept a movie career going in Hollywood that still makes her the highest paid actress in history.

Since Julia has been in the public eye for so long, you might think you know everything there is to know about her. but here are five fun little facts you might not already know about this actress.

Julia can play an instrumentJulia played the clarinet in her school's middle school and high school band. Bet you had Julia Roberts pegged as a cheerleader in those days, but nope…she was hanging with the band. wonder if she still plays. What if you were hanging out at a coffee shop and there was Julia Roberts playing a little jazz for nickels?

She's a record setting "Beautiful Person"She's been on People Magazine's "50 most beautiful People" list a record eight times. I wonder if that ever comes up in a conversation. Like, "yes she's very pretty, but I've been one of the most beautiful eight times…People Magazine says so."

Julia has an odd makeup ritual when on the set of a movieShe insists on having her makeup applied while laying down because she insists it gives her a more 'relaxed' look. well, obviously it works because she looks fantastic in every movie she's in, but when I read that, all I could imagine was it looking like a mortuary in the makeup truck.

She's left handed…Because Roberts is left handed, she had to learn how to use her right hand for her role in Erin Brockovich since, the real Erin Brockovich is right handed. now THAT'S dedication. sure I could see learning how to play an instrument or shacing your head for a role, but changing you dexterity? Talk about method acting…

Turned Down Surprising Film RolesJulia turned down roles in both Shakespeare in Love and Basic Instinct. Gwyneth Paltrow went on to win an Academy Award for her performance in Shakespeare in Love, and Basic Instinct made Sharon Stone an A-List Movie Star. I'm kind of glad she did turn down those roles, because..well..could we even imagine her in those roles?

So just because you've been a huge star for over two decades, doesn't mean there might be some fun things to still learn about you. did anything on this list surprise you? the Erin Brockovich thing was the most shocking to me.
