Red hot at 55! Julia Roberts puts on a leggy display in jean shorts and bathing suit at the beach

The acclaimed actress Julia Roberts was recently spotted filming beach scenes for her new movie “Leave the World Behind” in Long Island, New York. Despite the chilly weather, the 55-year-old actress was photographed frolicking in the sand in a stylish red one-piece swimsuit that showcased her toned physique.

The movie "Leave the World Behind" is based on the bestselling novel of the same name by Rumaan Alam. Roberts stars as Amanda, who takes a vacation to a remote corner of Long Island with her husband Clay and their two teenage children. However, their rental home’s owners suddenly return, claiming there has been a mysterious disaster and they need shelter. The story follows the tense relations between the two families in a confined setting.

In photos from the set, Julia Roberts appeared relaxed and cheerful, laughing with crew members between takes. “She seemed in great spirits and was very friendly to everyone on set,” an insider source commented. At one point, Roberts was overhead joking with a producer about the freezing temperature, saying “If I have to get in that water one more time, I should get extra pay!” showing her quick wit and humor. 

Roberts has been acting since the late 1980s but remains one of the biggest stars in Hollywood. Some of her most popular films include "Pretty Woman," "Notting Hill,” and “Erin Brockovich," for which she won an Oscar for Best Actress in a Leading Role in 2000. Despite her extensive experience, Roberts admitted in a recent interview that she still finds filming beach scenes challenging.

“Doing scenes on the beach always sounds idyllic but the truth is the elements often make it quite difficult to get right,” she said. “You have to do so many takes under the hot sun or struggle against the wind blowing sand in your eyes and mouth! There are so many things that can go wrong.”

However, Roberts persevered and was praised by the crew for her professionalism. "She never complained and was focused on getting the perfect shot,” a crew member said. “Her performance and experience really shone through. She made the whole process effortless even though conditions were difficult.”

An onlooker said it was a magical moment and Roberts looked truly captivating. “When she walked out of the water with the sun behind her and ran her hands through her windswept hair, it was such an iconic 'movie star' moment,” they said. "She really personifies the word 'luminous' - there's something radiant about her on camera that draws you in."
