Julia Roberts has the cover of the April 2012 issue of Vanity Fair, and in her accompanying interview, she spoke openly about the challenges today’s young Hollywood actors have that she didn’t face coming up in the industry.
“The business is so different; you can never be that new girl that has that moment of ‘Where’d she come from?’” she said. “There’s the express elevator and there’s rehab. It’s so awful; nobody gets a fair trial-and-error period that everybody deserves and everybody needs.”
Roberts said that in contrast, when she was first acting, there was “a time when I was encouraged — as all young actresses are — you know, ‘You’ve got to keep going; you’ve got to get out there.’” Check out another photo of Julia Roberts from the Vanity Fair editorial below.
