Pretty Woman Julia Roberts seems thrilled with her latest gig as the global ambassador for cosmetics company Lancôme.
“It’s kind of like every girl’s dream, really,” she tells Women’s Wear Daily. “To be 42 and have three kids and be a working mom, it’s a great moment to be asked to do this and to be able to do it. I think it says a lot about Lancôme and what they stand for.”
The Oscar-winner, who admits her own beauty regime came “to a screeching halt” after the arrival of twins Hazel and Phinnaeus, 5, and son Henry, 2 1/2, says she is taking a hands-on approach to the job.
“I get all these things to play with and test and give my opinion about,” she reveals. “And it’s quite exciting without having to invest all of myself in how I look because they did come to me as me, which is a pretty casual mom. But you know, it’s nice to up your game a little bit.”
Beauty ambassador is of course not her only title. Julia is also still busy filming – upcoming movies include the star-studded Valentine’s Day and the adaptation of the best-selling book Eat, Pray, Love.
Of the latter project, which took her across the globe to Italy, India and Indonesia, Julia says, “It was quite a huge undertaking. It was a little bit daunting, dragging three little kids around the world, but well worth it.”
The film is due to hit theaters in August 2010.
