Julia Roberts Looks Forward To Daughter Hazel Watching 'My Best Friend's Wedding'

Oscar-winning actress Julia Roberts has a long list of popular films like "Pretty Woman," "Notting Hill" and "Erin Brockovich." She's keen, however, on one movie she hopes her daughter Hazel will enjoy watching one day.

"My Best Friend's Wedding" ran in theaters in 1997. Hazel, at 12-years-old, has no interest in it just yet but Roberts looks forward to the day she'll be able to see it.

"That will be sweet," Roberts told Michael Strahan in her "Good Morning America" interview, Us Weekly reported. "I think [my kids] will be pleased with how I spent my 20s and 30s," she added.

Roberts starred with Dermot Mulroney and then newcomer Cameron Diaz in "My Best Friend's Wedding." She played a woman in love with her best friend who almost ruined his wedding, only to realize he really loves his bride. Vogue picked the movie as one of its 15 best classic romantic comedies of all time.

Hazel and his twin brother Phinnaeus, as well as younger brother Henry, 9, haven't done much movie marathons of their mother's films. "At the age they are now, it would be a short night," Roberts confessed. In their household, the kids have to be in bed at around 8:30 p.m.

Since having children, Roberts padded her filmography with family-oriented movies like "Smurfs: The Lost Village," "Mirror Mirror" and "Mother's Day." "There's nothing more thrilling than creating a piece of work and feeling like you have some triumph to bring home and lay at the feet of your family," she declared.

Despite her accomplishments in Hollywood, Roberts loves the role of being a mom in real life better than anything else. She calls motherhood a "great experience" and relishes in how much she's learning from her children. "Their point of view is so unique," she said.

Roberts married cameraman Danny Moder in 2002 after meeting him in 2000 on the set of "The Mexican." Hazel and Phinnaeus were born in 2004 and Henry came in 2007.
