Julia Roberts, the renowned Hollywood actress, prefers to keep her personal life, especially her three children, out of the public eye. She and her husband welcomed twins, Hazel and Phinnaeus, in 2004, followed by their son Henry three years later. Despite their preference for privacy, Julia and Daniel Moder occasionally offer fans brief glimpses into their family life. Recently, many fans couldn’t help but notice a specific detail about Hazel’s appearance.

Hazel made her red carpet debut at the Cannes Film Festival in 2021.

Julia Roberts’s 19-year-old daughter, Hazel, is stepping into the spotlight just like her mother. In 2021, she attended the premiere of Flag Day with her dad, Daniel Moder. This drama, directed by and starring Sean Penn, also features his daughter, Dylan Frances Penn, in a lead role. Daniel Moder worked as the film’s cinematographer, and Hazel decided to support him by joining him on the red carpet.

At the premiere, Hazel dazzled in a long yellow button-up dress complemented by black Mary-Jane shoes, while her dad looked dapper in a classic black suit.

Fans quickly picked up on the striking resemblance between Hazel and her mother, Julia Roberts. With her radiant smile and remarkable features, Hazel appears to be a spitting image of the renowned actress in her youth. Many remarked on the uncanny likeness, highlighting how Hazel unmistakably embodies her mother’s charm and grace.

Roberts is nurturing her children to be less dependent on technology.

Julia Roberts has consistently prioritized her children’s privacy, seldom sharing photos of them on social media. She emphasizes the importance of genuine connections within her family, advocating for time spent away from phones and technology. One of her household rules involves stowing phones away, particularly during meal times. “We just had sort of simple rules where we had a charging station where everyone’s phones go when you get home. There’s no phones at the table,” Julia revealed in 2023.

In the interview, she said that being at home “with kids and no devices” actually “sounds like a good time” to her. Julia explained that she raised her kids to not be overly dependent on technology, reminiscing about the days “when you couldn’t get ahold of people, or they couldn’t get ahold of you.”

“I think of a family coming together at the end of the day, and you actually have things to talk about at dinner because you haven’t been in contact all day long a hundred times or a busy signal,” she said.

The actress is a proud mom of college students.

Hazel and Phinnaeus are currently enrolled in college, a fact that fills Julia Roberts with immense pride. “It’s really thrilling, and I wasn’t lucky enough to have a college experience. So to see how it’s happening for them is really fascinating. And yeah, I’m just, I’m excited for them,” she shared openly.

During a December 2023 appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, Julia revealed that supporting her children’s colleges has become a significant aspect of her life. “You become immediately like, ’This is my entire life.’ I wear the colors, I do the whole thing.”

When Jimmy Fallon asked if her youngest son, Henry, was sad to be the only child left at home, Julia replied that while Henry missed his siblings, he also enjoyed being the sole kid at home, “I think it’s a good 50/50 split. He’s loving it. And I think he misses his people.”

Julia remains a hands-on mom even though her kids are older.

Julia Roberts remains deeply involved as a mother. During an appearance on the Today show, she expressed appreciation for the ongoing connection she shares with her children. “I parent them the same way out of the house that I parented them in the house,” the actress disclosed. “Which is ’Are you getting enough sleep? You sound like you’re sick, are you drinking enough tea? Text me when you get home. I can see that you’re home safe and sound,’” Julia explained.

She continued, “And I have an immense amount of appreciation for both of my older kids because they still allow me to be the same mom to them, and it’s not eye-rolling. There’s a huge amount of understanding.”

Despite her hectic schedule and the physical distance caused by college, Julia and her children stay connected through group calls.

She is grateful for finding work-life balance.

Julia has always cherished striking a balance between her career and family life, grateful for the opportunity to prioritize her children. Speaking with British Vogue in 2024, she reflected on how her early career success enabled her to focus on family when her kids were younger.

“I think that the luckiest aspect of my work life/family life is that the success of my work life came earlier. So by the time I had the success of my family life and had a husband and children who wanted to stay at home, I had been working for 18 years,” she shared.

Julia expressed profound gratitude for being able to pause her career to nurture her home life.

And shortly before that, Alyssa Milano sparked controversy by sharing a co-sleeping photo with her 9-year-old daughter. Some people claimed, “She’s too big” for such closeness.
