As the phrase goes, you must remember this:
You could have knocked me over with the proverbial feather when I found out that the actual poster for this big hit film was seriously doctored: that’s Julia Roberts’ head, all right, but everything from here down belongs to actress Shelly Michelle. (Never you mind about Richard Gere’s hair.) I didn’t understand this: it seemed to me, based on the evidence of the actual film, that Roberts had some perfectly nice gams.
A quarter-century and more later, this flashed back to me, with Julia on the cover of the June InStyle, and in a relatively leggy pose at that. As a subscriber, though, I knew I could count on this portrait being ruined by an address label. (The version you see here comes from the British press, probably the Daily Mail.)
As counterpoint, two relatively recent red-carpet looks: the 2014 Emmy Awards, followed by the 2015 Screen Actors Guild Awards.
Still, my favorite picture of Julia might be this page from a late-1990s fashion spread, complete with inscrutable caption:
I wonder what situation she was trying to escape at the time.
