Julia Roberts avoids the internet because of hurtful criticism

Julia-Roberts
Julia Roberts has revealed she never searches for herself on the internet because she thinks the criticism would upset her.

 

The Oscar winner avoids typing her moniker into Google because she is too worried about reading hurtful criticism or negative opinions about her work and personal life.

 

Speaking about her aversion to looking up articles about herself online, she said: “I have too much potential for collapse. There’s an anonymity (online) that makes people feel safe to participate in hatefulness. I like a good old fashioned fist fight if people are p***ed off at each other. I just feel like if you’re really mad and want to have a fight, then put your dukes up.”

 

Rather than sit in front of a computer, Julia would rather devote her time to caring for her family – husband of 11 years, Danny Moder, and their children, eight-year-old twins Hazel and Finn, and Henry, six.

 

In an interview in the new US issue of Marie Claire magazine, she revealed: “It’s my privilege and honour to cook three meals a day for my family, and it’s a luxury on a level that I didn’t even realise, because it can be relentless for me on some days. You have pride in how you take care of your family.”

 

Although the 46-year-old actress has had a phenomenal career in Hollywood she still gets star-struck and admits it took her a little while to get used to working with Meryl Streep in ‘August: Osage County’.

 

She revealed: “I had many imaginary conversations with Meryl about working together. When a person goes from being on a pedestal in your mind, to even cooler, better and more fabulous up close, you get to understand them a little more intimately.”
