Julia Roberts: Aging is a cultural obsession

julia-roberts-premiere-of-august-osage-county_3996752 Pretty Woman Julia Roberts admires many of her fellow actresses for their beauty and believes that it is something that comes from the inside and has to do with a person’s self-assurance.

She said: ”I definitely think some of my older female peer group are deeply beautiful women. They have this thing that radiates from them. It’s coming from this deep place of understanding who they are and what their purpose is. It creates a light.”

Julia, who is thought to be one of the most beautiful actresses by many, was once asked by a director to have the facial marks ”taken off” because he thought they made her look ”dirty”.

”One director wanted me to have two freckles taken off because he said it made my face look dirty,” she revealed.

She explained: ”I don’t spend a lot of time in the mirror. I’m pretty efficient in terms of looking at myself and, to be honest, I don’t think what you’re talking about is a business demand – it’s a cultural obsession.”

    Julia Roberts is 100% right, it is a cultural obsession. Many people on earth are afraid to age and get older. They are afraid to look uglier and worse. Julia looks stunning at any age and it is easy for her to remain beautiful as she has that light that she was talking about radiating from within. The outer beauty fades away, while the inner one is always there… so, let us be beautiful inside and make our inner world even more beautiful on daily basis.
