Here is what happened:
Julia Roberts has shared the fates of some of her most iconic romcom characters, including Vivian and Edward from Pretty Woman, Maggie and Ike from Runaway Bride, and Anna and William from Notting Hill. She revealed that Vivian runs Edward’s business following his passing, while Maggie and Ike stay together without any tragic deaths, and Anna is retired with six children and has maintained her waist size while William runs the bookshop and she oversees a little knitting annex. She also hopes that Daisy and Charles from Mystic Pizza have a future together and have many children, and believes that the end of The Pelican Brief sees Darby and Gray ending up together. She also mentions that her upcoming movie, “Leave the World Behind,” is both a disaster movie and a thriller, but also “a story about this family, this husband and wife, who are kind of opposites.”
Julia also discussed her least favorite romantic comedies she has been in. She cited her lack of chemistry with Nick Nolte in “I Love Trouble,” and the ridiculous wig she wore in “Mother’s Day.” She also mentioned the lack of depth and romance in “America’s Sweethearts,” and the failure of “Larry Crowne” to capture the audience’s interest. She pointed out that “The Mexican” didn’t click with the audience, and that her performance in “Valentine’s Day” wasn’t memorable.
Some movies, however, were successful in Julia’s career. “Notting Hill” was mentioned as a highlight, combining her charisma and charm with Hugh Grant’s allure in a timeless classic. “Runaway Bride,” in which Julia played alongside Richard Gere, was also a memorable experience, featuring an adorable small-town setting and fun weddings. Lastly, Julia mentioned that “Pretty Woman” was a success, earning her a Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Musical or Comedy after her star-making turn.
