Julia Roberts is Back

Woo Hoo. And I couldn’t be more excited!! It’s been a long time since we’ve seen Julia Roberts on the big screen.

In the last eight years, Julia Roberts has become a mother, dabbled on Broadway (in “Three Days of Rain”) and provided the voice for both a spider (in “Charlotte’s Web”) and an ant (in “The Ant Bully”).

Julia Roberts will make her “comeback” in the movie,“Duplicity” – set to be released on March 20th. The film is about a pair of corporate spies (Clive Owens and Julia Roberts) who share a steamy past hook up to pull off the ultimate con job on their respective bosses.
Also starring in the movie will be Billy Bob Thorton, Tom Wilkinson and Paul Giamatti. Julia’s last real leading role was in 2001 when she starred in “America’s Sweethearts” and “The Mexican.” Continue reading

Accompanied by Harvard men in drag, Renee Zellweger has been honored as the Hasty Pudding Theatricals woman of the year. Hasty Pudding is the nation’s oldest undergraduate drama troupe. By tradition, many of its male members wear women’s clothes for the parade.

The actress rode in the back of a silver convertible Bentley during a parade through Harvard Square on Thursday. She waved to spectators while capturing the event on her cell phone camera.

The Hasty Pudding Theatricals Man of the Year is James Franco. James is set to receive his award on February 13th.

The Man and Woman of the Year awards are presented annually to performers who have made a “lasting and impressive contribution to the world of entertainment.” The Woman of the Year award has been granted to many notable entertainers, including Meryl Streep, Katharine Hepburn, Julia Roberts, Jodie Foster, Elizabeth Taylor, and, most recently, Charlize Theron. The Man of the Year’s past recipients include Clint Eastwood, Tom Cruise, Robert De Niro, Steven Spielberg, Harrison Ford, Anthony Hopkins, Bruce Willis, and, last year, Christopher Walken.

Congratulations to Renee and James!!
