Julia Roberts plays a mother-of-two in the recently released film Fireflies In The Garden. The movie was actually shot way back in 2007, when the actress was pregnant with son Henry, now four, and she talks about how seeing the film brings back poignant memories of her pregnancy.
“When I see it now, he’s this big boy who can dress himself and do all these things. It really is touching to see that,” she said.
The family in Fireflies is a dysfunctional one, and Julia – who also has 7-year-old twins Hazel and Phinnaeus with husband Danny Moder – says it differs from her own family dynamic but highlights the difficulties that all parents face. “I think it’s challenging for everybody in different ways,” she says.
“My challenges as a wife and a mother are very different from the ones portrayed in the movie, but I think for everybody it’s a hard challenge.”
