Julia Roberts Avoids A Home Intruder in Malibu!

The 86th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals B3

Everyone’s favorite Pretty Woman, narrowly avoided a crazed fan entering her property in Malibu back in January.  The intruder of Julia Robert’s home was promptly tossed head first into a cactus by her super awesome security team.  Radar Online reports that her ex-US military guards:

“One close neighbor, who saw the incident, explained to Radar: “It was about one in the afternoon when four sheriff cars came rushing down the road, they were white ones, which means it’s the chief in the area, they’re not messing around.  I thought someone had been murdered or there was a fire.”

“By the time I got there, the man was just crawling out of the cactus bush outside her property and the security guards were talking to the police.  One of them was boasting saying: ‘I’m an ex-Marine and I just picked him up and threw him head first into the cactus.’

Apparently, the creeper ran off and wasn’t caught by the police.  How scary!  For her but also because she has children.  I love that they threw him into the cacti.  That’s pretty amazing.

Ellen DeGeneres took an Oscars selfie we’ll be talking about for years

ellen oscars selfie

Ellen DeGeneres helmed the Oscars last night, and besides the award winners, there’s one thing everyone’s been talking about: her ultimate superstar selfie with some of the biggest names in the business. As you can see above, Ellen managed to get everyone together for a nice little picture. We’ve got our Jennifer Lawrence, our Bradley Cooper, a little bit of Julia Roberts, Brad Pitt and Kevin Spacey, a cut-off Jared Leto, a sneaky Lupita Nyong’o and her brother Peter and even some Angelina Jolie!

The picture popped up on Ellen’s Twitter page last night and actually crashed the site momentarily as everyone furiously reblogged. It’ll be hard to beat that selfie, that’s for sure! As Ellen herself posted, “If only Bradley’s arm was longer. Best photo ever.”

Julia Roberts Goes Blonde… Say it Ain’t So.

The 20th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards - Arrivals

America’s Pretty Woman has gone blonde just in time for this weekend’s Oscars.  You can see the picture here.  The August: Osage County star was spotted on Friday, walking around Los Angeles with her newly dyed locks.

This is Julia Roberts‘ first sighting since the news broke of her half-sister’s suicide earlier this month.  Nancy Motes left a long note blaming her famous sister and the tension between the two for her unhappiness. Roberts cancelled several appearances following the loss of her sister, though she is expected to attend the Academy Awards, where she is nominated for Best Supporting Actress.  (I think it’s going to Jennifer Lawrence for American Hustle…)

Julia Roberts is a stunner with whatever hair color she has.  That said- I truly hope she has a different stylist helping her dress for this weekend than she did for the SAG Awards.  This pink ensemble is a bit tragic.

Julia Roberts Is Having Some Family Issues

Julia Roberts: good sis, or bad?

The star is staying far away form her sister Nancy’s wedding, The Enquirer says (via Celebitchy), because she hates the groom and doesn’t want to to have to pay for the dang thing.  Seems reasonable, right? Kinda, though, remember when she was calling her sister out on being overweight/having a bad appearance? And then her sister took some photos of Julia’s newborn twins? Oy, this relationship sounds strained. The Enquirer reports….

Nancy Motes — the star’s younger half sister — asked her famous sibling to be a bridesmaid in her upcoming nuptuals to John Dilbeck. Julia not only said “no” — she’s even refusing to go as a guest, the source added.

“Julia doesn’t think much of Nancy’s husband-to-be,” revealed an insider. “She’s convinced he’s sponging off Nancy, who doesn’t have that much money in the first place. They moved out to L.A. from Georgia, and John was working at a panda Express restaurant. But he quit his job after Nancy landed a gig as a production assistant on “Glee.”

John recently made a splash by getting down on bended knee and proposing to Nancy in front of cast and crew members on the Hollywood set of the hit FOX show. Ironically, the source says it was Julia who got Nancy the job by pulling strings with show creator Ryan Murphy, who directed the 45-year-old actress in the film Eat Pray Love.

This is just the latest in a long list of battles between the sisters. In 2005, Julia exploded when she caught Nancy, 37, snapping pictures of her then-newborn twins, Phinnaeus and Hazel, at the actress’ home in Taos, N.M. And in 2011, the two got into a heated fight after Julia made disparaging remarks about Nancy’s weight.

“Now Julia won’t go to her wedding because she’s worried Nancy will try to tap her for more money,” said the insider. Apparently the sisters’ mom, Betty Motes, is trying to play peacemaker and patch up the feud before Nancy walks down the aisle later this year. But the insider said: “Julia told her not to hold her breath.”

Man,  sounds like it’s tough to be the mom of Julia Roberts and her fame-hungry half sister.  Who do YOU think is in the right and/or wrong?

Emma Watson lands the cover of GQ Magazine, copies Julia Roberts’ sexy ‘Pretty Woman’ dress.

Emma Watson is all grown up. The Harry Potter child actress has changed her image for her upcoming movie ‘The Bling Ring,’ and is loving her new transformation.

The 22-year-old actress is seen on this month’s cover of Britain’s GQ Magazine wearing a dress similar to Julia Roberts’ famous Pretty Woman cut-out dress.

On the cover, Emma is dressed as her character Nikki from the film. Here’s more from GQ:

Emma on playing an “amoral” character like Nikki:

“When I read the script and I realized that essentially it was a meditation on fame and what it’s become to our society, I had to do it. The character is everything that I felt strongly against — she’s superficial, materialistic, vain, amoral. She’s all of these things and I realized that I hated her. How do you play someone you hate? But I found it really interesting and it gave me a whole new insight into what my job or my role as an actress could be.”

Emma plays the leading role in the Sofia Coppola-directed movie about the real life Bling Ring or The Hollywood Hills Burglar Bunch as they were known, who were arrested in 2009 for a string of break-ins at the homes of stars including Lindsay Lohan and Paris Hilton.

She admits she’s taking a wide range of movie roles so she doesn’t get pigeonholed:

“I was open-minded about doing anything but the one thing I didn’t want to do was get myself into a corset because I was worried I would never get out again. This has been a really big departure for me. It’s a really big character. That’s so exciting for me because it meant I was really acting.”

Watch the trailer for ‘The Bling Ring’ below! I’m totally excited, I absolutely LOVE Sofia Coppola!
