I am getting too old for comedy: Julia Roberts

London: Actress Julia Roberts, who has starred in a number of romantic comedy movies, feels she is now getting too old to take on any more roles in the genre.

The 42-year-old star, who has five-year-old twins Hazel and Phinnaeus and son Henry, three, with her cameraman husband Daniel Moder, admits she feels far too mature to portray a lovelorn character, Contactmusic reported.

"I think I`m too old for those silly situations of unrequited love! It becomes less plausible when you`re in the 40s to be walking down in the hallways because a boy walks by!

I`ve read a couple lately that are more original and more mature, but they just didn`t seem to fit for me," Roberts said.

In her long career the American beauty has acted in movies like the `Runaway Bride`, `Notting Hill` and `The Mexican`.

"I feel my reward for working 18 years before having kids is that I can take the time I need for my family between jobs. It`s a great relief! You know, somebody asked me the other day and I said, `God is great`. The world has been a gracious place for me as an actor and I can`t explain any of it," Roberts said.
