Riassunto: Julia Roberts represents a return to the glamour of the great Hollywood stars of another era. Fans flock to her movies, and she's a staple cover subject of People magazine and every entertainment show imaginable, but her real life has only been seen in tabloid glimpses until now. James Spada has gone back to Julia's beginnings in Athens, Georgia to unearth fascinating facts about her family and her early dating life. And he's followed her career from movie to movie-both on screen and behind the screen-to show fans what the private face of Julia really is.
As an artist, Julia has changed dramatically from the talented but sheltered girl who found fame first with a role in the independent movie "Mystic Pizza" and became the exuberant star whose "Pretty Woman" delighted audiences everywhere before becoming an Oscar-winning actress capable of taking on the toughest roles. As a person, she's grown from a skittish and gangly girl moving through relationships with co-stars to become an assured woman making her own bold decisions about how to live her life.
Julia will delight fans with its level of detail and fresh information, as well as its thoughtfulness about the life and career of a truly vibrant and complex star.
From the Inside Flap:
She is beloved worldwide for her effervescent smile and the way she lights up the screen in movies like "Erin Brokovich", "Mona Lisa's Smile" and, of course, "Pretty Woman." But Julia Roberts's real life has only been glimpsed in the tabloids until now. Acclaimed biographer James Spada has created a rich and exhaustively researched portrait of Julia as both an actress and as a woman. Spada went back to Julia's parents' beginnings in Georgia to unearth fascinating facts about her dysfunctional family background, her troubled childhood, and her early dating life. What he discovered may explain why Julia moved through her twenties and early thirties seemingly falling for a new co-star on every movie set. And Spada's interpretation of those romances-from the whirlwind last minute cancellation of her marriage to Kiefer Sutherland and the brooding intensity of her relationship with Jason Patric to to the sunnier and healthier long liaison with Benjamin Bratt-is juicy and fascinating reading.
Julia offers fresh details about all the star's famous movies to uncover an intensely dedicated but deeply insecure artist. After rising to superstardom at twenty-two Julia endured the onslaught of paparazzi along with her very public string of failed relationships, rumors of drug addiction, and clashes with big-name directors like Herbert Ross and Steven Spielberg. She fled Hollywood for two years, made her first "comeback" at the tender age of twenty-five, then took on a series of risky roles in movies that flopped. For the last six years, she has delighted audiences in a string of smash hits and topped the Hollywood heap as the highest paid actress in history.
Julia shows how the star has grown from a skittish girl moving through volatile relationships with charismatic co-stars to become an assured woman making her own bold-and often controversial-decisions about how to life her life.
Julia is as lively and vivacious as the star it explores. You will not be able to put it down.
