    Huffington Post ^ | 04/19/2017 | By Julia Brucculieri
    On Wednesday, People magazine announced its pick for “World’s Most Beautiful Woman” of 2017 and ― drumroll please ― it’s Julia Roberts, who’s now earned the title a record five times. That’s right, Roberts has been named “Most Beautiful” more times than anyone else, surpassing Jennifer Aniston and Michelle Pfeiffer. She first appeared on the issue in 1991 at the age of 23, fresh from her role in “Pretty Woman.” “I am very flattered,” the Oscar-winning actress said of the recent accolade, later adding, “I think I’m currently peaking.” Now, yes, Roberts is beautiful, but if we’re being honest, so...

    Jodie Foster's film — reuniting stars Julia Roberts and George Clooney — makes its world premiere Thursday at the Cannes Film Festival hours before it starts rolling out in the U.S.; 'Captain America: Civil War' crosses $200 million domestically for a global total of $737.8 million. Jodie Foster's financial thriller Money Monster is eyeing a bearish opening in the U.S., where it is looking at a debut in the low-teen millions, if tracking is correct. Sony/TriStar insiders are being even more conservative and suggesting their pic will open in the $10 million range, thanks to another kind of monster —...

    Jodie Foster is on point. Mere minutes into conversation and she’s talking politics, specifically as they pertain to “Money Monster,” a timely thriller she’s directed. It’s impossible to watch “Money Monster,” which stars George Clooney and Julia Roberts and opens May 13, and not be reminded of the indeterminate rage of the Trump phenomenon. She’s eager to talk about “Money Monster,” in which Clooney plays Lee Gates, the swaggering, superficial star of a cable financial show who’s taken hostage by a young man, played by Jack O’Connell, whose savings have been wiped out by one of Gates’s stock tips. Foster...

MCDONALD'S McDonald's unveiled their new mascot, an animated Happy Meal box with teeth.

    I saw Eat Pray Love over the weekend. I can’t remember the last film I walked out of but I certainly wanted to walk out of this one. I stayed because I want to know what is going in the world. I know now and it’s not good. The cinema was half full, almost all were women.

    Her parents were Baptist and Catholic and she was born in Georgia, part of the US Bible Belt. But Hollywood superstar Julia Roberts says she is now a practising Hindu.

In the movie, she plays a divorced woman who travels to Italy for food, India for spirituality...

    I trace the beginning of my evolution from pro-choice to pro-life to a comment I heard on the radio a decade or so ago. It might have been Rush Limbaugh who made the point that many of the people moved to tears at the thought of the killing of baby seals are the same ones who "celebrate" a woman's right to have an abortion.Something clicked. What kind of moral compass is that?I think back to that moment when I hear pro-choice advocates such as Julia Roberts express their tender concerns for various members of the animal kingdom. A good example...

    While listening to a Pre-Recorded tribute to 9/11 on WRKO 680 this afternoon there was a quote by some unnamed celeb: "Knocking down the twin towers is like knocking out Julia Robert's two front teeth". If Julia F***ing Roberts were in front of me right now and I could save all those lives. She would be on a mad rush to the dentist.

    I was totally enthralled with the performance of Barbra Streisand in the 1973 movie, "The Way We Were." Before that her '68 performance in "Funny Girl" was classic. But her performance lately on the political stage has not been one of her best roles. She's been a real disappointment. Julia Roberts was everybody's "sweetheart" in Steel Magnolias, and after that I didn't want to miss a single movie. But when she entered the political arena saying, "Bush is not my candidate . . . the word 'Republican' in the dictionary comes between 'reptile and repugnant,'" my respect for her acting...
