Julia Roberts wins an award for ‘courage’ and the truly courageous get schooled

Dontchaloveshowbiz? At the James Corden-hosted amfAR Gala in Los Angeles, Julia Robert won a gong for…courage. Roberts has done good works in the fight against HIV/AIDS.AmfAR is “dedicated to ending the global AIDS epidemic through innovative research”. All good. But “courage”?

Courage is defined as the “mental or moral strength to venture, persevere, and withstand danger, fear, or difficulty”.

Aside from the hyperbolic language, Vanity Fair tells us of the do: “While accepting her award on stage at the sprawling home of billionaire investor Ronald Burkle’s Green Acres Estate in Beverly Hills.”

Julia Roberts’ mother has died. Roberts is an actress. Her mother wasn’t. Her mother was not a public figure. This is a moment of private grief for a private person. So. How does the Daily Mail report it:


Julia Roberts mother


Lest you think the Mail has bought nine paparazzi photos  – a thing the paper vowed to stop doing after Princess Diana died – and was gawping at private grief, the ‘Daily Mail Reporter’ tells us its there to support the actress:

As news broke, the star’s friends rushed to the actress’ side as she began the difficult task of visiting her mother’s home in West Los Angeles, California. While many may struggle to enter their late loved ones home on the day they died, the 47-year-old appeared to be determined to get everything in order.

A difficult task made easier by the man with the camera recording your every move .

She’s an inspiration. But can Julia Roebrts be so great at the funeral? Let’s hope the Mail is there to show us…

Julia Roberts And Christy Turlington L’Oreal Ads Banned For Lying

THOSE images of Julia Roberts and Christy Turlington modelling stuff for L’Oreal have been banned. The Liberal Democrat MP Jo Swinson says the ads adverts were “not representative of the results the products could achieve”.

Emma Roberts Is Related To Co-Star Julia Roberts: It’s Talent Not Nepotism That Opens Doors In Hollywood

EMMA Roberts is an actress. Her aunt is Julia Roberts, also an actress. Another aunt is Lisa Roberts Gillan, Julia’s sister, and another actress. Her dad is Eric Roberts, Julia’s brother, and an actor.

Emma Roberts tells PopEater:

In the beginning did everyone accuse you of nepotism because of your dad and aunt?
A lot of people think that and they talk about nepotism which I think is so ridiculous considering it’s obviously not true, because I’ve auditioned for so many things and never gotten the part. Also it’s like, you know, maybe someone can get you one part but they can’t really get you ten parts.

Today, Star readers learn:


A year of chasing Alex Reid, a man who spends his working life in a cage suggests Jordan should either change her shoes, work out a better bust-to-muscle ratio that stops her taking one step forward, toppling over onto her front and bouncing three steps back, or use a phone.
