Julia Roberts on Her Good Figure: It is 97 percent genetics | julia roberts celebrity quotes

42 year-old actress Julia Roberts brings the quotes of the day:

On her constant slim figure:

“It is 97 percent genetics. Don’t let anybody tell you any crap about anything else, because that’s what it is – 97 percent genetics and three percent just get your ass moving. I should know because I’ve never met a cookie I didn’t like!”

On weight-obsessed Hollywood:

“I’m too old for that crap. It’s so silly, so pointless, and it’s motivated by a culture that for some reason finds it entertaining to perpetuate the glorification of our youth. It’s really sad and disinteresting. I mean, I know people really suffer and I just think, ‘How can they perpetuate that? It’s silly to consider it a personal triumph for myself that in almost 24 years in showbusiness – except for being pregnant – I’ve weighed within about a five to 10lb range. That seems unusual, but I’m lucky I haven’t suffered those things. I think it’s important for us to start perpetuating the healthy, happy way of looking at it as opposed to supporting the negative ideal of what a girl should ideally look like.”

… says Julia.
