Why Julia Roberts Never Thought of Herself as ‘America’s Sweetheart’

While Julia Roberts has long been heralded as one of "America's sweethearts," both in reference to her starring role in the 2001 rom-com and her affable demeanor, the actress doesn't necessarily see herself the same way.

"I didn't feel like it was the beauty pageant sash, like 'America's sweethearts.' It was the name of the movie I was in so it just seemed an easy, 'Oh, okay, let's just stitch those two things together,'" she told Patricia Arquette during their Actors on Actors conversation.

"I'm very unemotional about stuff like that," she continued, noting that she knows Arquette reacts differently to public opinion. "I don't feel like I have to then live up to something or that it's some sort of pressure understanding of me. I feel like it sort of shows, in fact, a greater sense of protection between me as a person and me as an actor."

When asked whether she feels there's a disparity between her public persona and her personal understanding of who she is, she admitted that she does see a gap. "I think it used to be completely different and now I think it's just different," she said. "But also, I've never been a person that attracted the 'musician energy' where people see a musician in the grocery store and you'd be like, 'Oh my god.'"

Instead, Roberts reveals that people who stop her in public usually treat her like an old friend. "I get this kind of energy like, 'Oh, you cut your hair … it'll grow back.'"

She continued, "I think people see me more as like their neighbor or 'My daughter looks just like you.' Those are the kinds of things people come up and approach me with as opposed to an energy that's more than I can handle."
