Julia Roberts Confidential

Julia Roberts's career has been a rollercoaster ride: her early success with Steel Magnolias (1989), Pretty Woman (1990) and Flatliners (1990) and was derailed with the high-profile flop Hook (1991). 

It was several years before she re-established her credentials with hits including Notting Hill in 1999. She is now the highest-paid actress in Hollywood, and the winner of an Academy Award for Best Actress, for her role in Erin Brockovich (2000).

But behind the glittering star lies a personal life that has put her in the headlines more often than her movies. she dumped fiance Kiefer Sutherland just three days before their wedding and went on to marry country singer Lyle Lovett, who she had only known for a month; the marriage lasted less than two years. She attended the 2001 Academy Awards ceremony with her boyfriend Benjamin Bratt, but it emerged later that their relationship had been over for some time, a fact covered up to protect her chances of winning Best Actress.

In 2002, she unexpectedly married again, to cameraman Daniel Moder. The book is the first comprehensive biography of Julia Roberts. Captivating and page-turning, it has a wealth of information about the personal life and career of this major Hollywood star.

The critics speak:

"Fans will enjoy Donnelley's gossipy guide to the life of their heroine" Richard Williamson, Sunday Mercury

"Donnelley works through the highs and lows of her performances and private live with glee... Scurrilous but amusing" Mark Sanderson, The Sunday Telegraph
