Hollywood icon Julia Roberts, renowned for her roles in 'Erin Brockovich', 'Notting Hill', 'Ocean's Twelve', and more, typically keeps her twins, Hazel Patricia and Phinnaeus Walter, out of the public eye. However, she recently marked their 19th birthday, breaking her usual privacy protocol, as reported by 'People' magazine.
In an interview with Extra, Roberts, 56, expressed her decision, stating, “It is something to be celebrated, and I know Instagram is a place where people like to share happy things. I love them so much, and I really did just happen to come upon this cute picture. It allows me to share something as a proud parent of them without infringing on their privacy at all.”
On November 28, the Oscar-winning actress posted an adorable throwback picture of Hazel Patricia and Phinnaeus Walter as babies, nestled in her lap, captioning it with heartfelt words about the joys of life together.
Apart from her twins, Roberts also shares a son, Henry Daniel, 16, with her husband Danny Moder.
During the Extra interview, while discussing their upcoming Netflix film 'Leave the World Behind' with Mahershala Ali, Roberts revealed a different side. Despite the film's theme of a global technological breakdown amid a world-ending catastrophe, she confessed that the idea of being home “with kids and no devices” sounds appealing to her.
Roberts emphasized that her children aren’t reliant on technology, expressing nostalgia for a time when constant communication wasn't prevalent. She mentioned missing the days “when you couldn’t get ahold of people, or they couldn’t get ahold of you.”
'Leave the World Behind' is set to premiere on Netflix soon, promising an intriguing take on a world disrupted by technological failures amidst a looming disaster.
