London: Hollywood actress Julia Roberts feels she is too old to take up romantic comedy movie roles.

"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," contactmusic.com quoted her as saying.

The 42-year-old star insists she doesn`t mind taking work at a slower pace now she is a mother to five-year-old twins Hazel and Phinnaeus and son Henry, three.

She said: "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."
