Roberts: I won't try Botox again

Julia Roberts has confessed she tried Botox, but she didn't feel comfortable not being able to express emotions to her children.

The 44-year-old actress - whose character the evil queen in new Snow White film Mirror Mirror is constantly in search of ways to look younger and more beautiful - told Access Hollywood she does not feel pressure in Hollywood to stay looking young, because she is a mother first.

Julia revealed: "I tried the Botox one time and was permanently surprised for a couple months and it was not a cute look for me.

"My feeling is, I have three children who should know what emotion I'm feeling at the exact moment I'm feeling it. Like, that is critical.

"As a mother it's whatever works for the person. I don't want to judge somebody who can't turn their head or move their lips. I don't know - if you want your chin on your forehead I'm not one to [judge]. If that's going to bring you joy, I'm all for it."

The Oscar-winning actress - who is married to photographer Danny Moder - also revealed her fame doesn't follow her to her children's school, where she is just known as "Mrs Moder".

Julia, who is mother to seven-year-old twins Hazel and Finn, and four-year-old Henry, laughed: "Or Finn and Hazel's mom. "'Hi, Finn and Hazel's mom!' Or, you know, 'Lady'."
