My kids don’t watch my films, says Julia Roberts
Washington: Julia Roberts has revealed that her children are not allowed to watch any of her movies.
The 44-year-old beauty’s three children, 7-year-old twins Hazel Patricia and Phinnaeus Walter and 4and a half-year-old Henry Daniel, will even have to wait to see her latest film, family flick ‘Mirror Mirror’, in which she plays Snow White’s evil Queen.
“I think they are [too young] considering the part that I play,” People magazine quoted her as saying.
“We have a pretty rigid viewing feeling in our house,” she said of her policy with her husband, director Danny Moder, about exposing their kids to their work.
“We’ll find our right time that will be happy and joyous for us to share that all together, but it probably isn’t in two weeks,” she said.
As of now, her three kids don’t watch many movies or TV shows at all.
“Those nice, cozy, very short hours before bed, we just really spend together as a family talking and sharing the day and reading books, and really, before you know it, it’s time for bed,” she said.
“Part of it is there’s just not time for that. We would prefer something different in that time.
“We’re more book people in our house,” she explained, adding that her family is interested in “stories and poetry and talking, sharing ideas.”
Which isn’t to say the actress is entirely opposed to her kids watching TV.
“They do get to watch some things,” she said.
“But for us, we just feel there’s a real time and a place for it,” she added.
