Julia Roberts never considered that there might be another pretty woman of the same name walking down the street.
“I guess I am self-centered and it never occurred to me that anybody else would be named Julia Roberts,” she said during her Thursday night appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” to talk about her upcoming movie “Secret in Their Eyes.” “I didn’t think no one would be; I just never thought about it.”
Kimmel rounded up at least nine other women who shared Robert’s name for a live video conference, with ladies coming from all over the continent. They all kibitzed on the perks of sharing the name with the actress, some of which included upgraded hotel rooms and dinner reservations.
One Roberts disclosed that when she went on a trip to India, she was referred to as “Eat Pray Love,” a film in which the actor Roberts starred in 2010. Another Roberts revealed that she often must verify who she is when using her credit card after stating her name.
The A-list Roberts had a solution for her: “Say, ‘I’ll call Richard Gere and he will tell you.'”
