No diet dilemma for Julia Roberts

September 25th, 2010

Julia Roberts doesn't care about dieting "c**p".

The 'Eat Pray Love' actress - who has three children, five-year-old twins Hazel and Phinnaeus, and son Henry, three, with her husband Daniel Moder - has never been bothered about staying slim and believes it is "sad and disinteresting" that people pay so much attention to the weight of others.

She said: "I'm too old for that c**p. 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?' "

The 42-year-old screen beauty has always been slim, but she doesn't consider it a "personal triumph".

She explained: "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."

Instead of worrying about women's weight, Julia hopes the world will relax and lose interest in people's figures.

She explained: "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."
