JULIA Roberts says her life got better as soon as she hit 30.
The actress, 46, insists he last 16 years have been the best of her life, as she doesn’t have the hang-ups she had in her 20s.
”On my 30th, every person I loved and adored in the world was with me. I was excited and could not understand the tone of doom about leaving my youth behind,” she said.
”Since then, my life has been bliss. If I knew that 30 was going to be so much fun I would have done it at 22!”
Julia isn’t worried about ageing and instead wants to focus on her career, taking on the best roles she can and being a fantastic mother to nine-year-old twins Hazel and Phinnaeus and six-year-old son Henry — her children with her husband Daniel Moder.
”Happiness takes on different forms as you get older, smarter, have more friends or get deeper into relationships in life,” she said.
”And the least of my worries is age. I work hard at my job and as a mum. I do not count the years. We all get old and that is OK.”
What fan favorite characters and scenes are teased in the new Game of Thrones trailer? Who was not impressed with Woody Allen‘s tribute at the Golden Globes? Why does Jemima Kirke think Jessa’s surprising storyline in Girls is “expected?”
Amy Poehler kissed Bono when she found out she won the Golden Globe for Best Actress In a Television Series (Musical or Comedy) last night. Her boyfriend, Nick Kroll, jokingly called Bono out on twitter by tweeting, “Hey Bono, watch your back.” [Eonline]
Game of Thrones won’t be back until April 6, but you can get your first good look at the new season. HBO released a full length trailer last night that gives fans sneak peak at Joffrey’s wedding, Dany’s rule in Meereen and the Red Viper. [Huffington Post]
Sure, Hollywood honored Woody Allen with the Cecil B. DeMille award at last night’s Golden Globes, but one famous person was not impressed. Allen’s son, Ronan Farrow, tweeted, “Missed the Woody Allen tribute — did they put the part where a woman publicly confirmed he molested her at age 7 before or after Annie Hall?” [US Magazine]
Girls came back to HBO last night and Jessa’s storyline took yet another surprising turn. Actress Jemima Kirke explains that it’s expected that Jessa is “going to do the unexpected.” [MTV News]
Their road to the red carpet hasn’t always been a smooth one, but Golden Globes hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler seem to have worked out all the kinks in time for Sunday night’s ceremony. Both actresses were perfectly on-point from the moment they hit the red carpet to the second they toasted the “beautiful mess” of a show with goblets of wine. And each were one-designer women — Fey stuck with Carolina Herrera while Poehler wore Stella McCartney all evening. Below, see their best looks. (And don’t forget to watch all our favorite Tina and Amy moments here!)
On the red carpet, Fey surprised us by choosing a bold custom fuchsia-and-black jacquard dress with an allover rose motif, which she accented with vintage-inspired earrings. Berry lips and a half-up do (courtesy of stylist Richard Marin) completed the look.
Poehler wore a custom black cady gown with an asymmetric bodice and black belt, plus some chic bangles and a loose hairstyle to echo the gown’s modern vibe.
Fey went for va-va-voom impact in a burgundy silk georgette V-neck gown with multi crystal beading. Marin upped the vibe with bombshell waves, though she kept her makeup look more natural.
Poehler chose a forest green cady gown by McCartney with encrusted lace panels down the side, to which she added matching chunky gold cuffs (including one by Karla Welch for Jacob & Co.) and curled her hair back out of her face. We loved this one because it showed off her serious guns.

Fey remained in her plunging gown while introducing her “illegitimate teenage son,” which may or may not have just been Poehler in a tux. But we couldn’t pass up an opportunity to revisit “Randy’s” Bieber-inspired do.

Finally, the actresses ended their evening giving us some serious Old Hollywood glamour. Fey channeled Marilyn Monroe’s “Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend” vibe in a bustled red gown, updo and Cartier jewels, while Poehler fittingly picked up her Best Actress trophy in an equally winning look: A black gown with white edging and gorgeous drop diamond chandeliers.
Which look was your favorite? How funny were they?
Tina Fey and Amy Poehler returned Sunday night to host the Golden Globes awards on NBC, and they stuck pretty much to last year’s routine. Their introductory remarks worked through the movie and television categories with funny, precise jokes that were sometimes lightly pointed commentary, sometimes just stupid fun.
Lightly pointed commentary: Saluting Matthew McConaughey for Dallas Buyers Club, Fey said, “He lost 45 pounds, or what actresses call being in a movie.”
Stupid fun: Saluting Kerry Washington, they simultaneously turned to a side camera and whispered: “Scandal!”
Later in the show, Poehler came out dressed as Mr. Golden Globe – Tina Fey’s grumpy teenage son, Randy. Randy should host the Oscars.
It would be nice even to have Fey and Poehler at the Pearly Gates, as adjuncts to St. Peter, so that whoever is turned away and hurled down into the fires of hell won’t feel so bad.
As for the three-hour broadcast, the show itself wasn’t much different from being on an airport walkway: Once you got on it, it moved along smoothly, effortlessly and for what seemed like a long time.
Some odds and ends:
• Jacqueline Bisset, whose table must have been in a separate wing of the Beverly Hilton Hotel, had an endless walk to the stage, then when she finally got there couldn’t seem to get her speech started (she had won supporting actress in a TV miniseries, Dancing on the Edge). Yet when she eventually did start sputtering a grab bag of comments, she nonetheless delivered it with a star’s bravura. Then she was played off.
• In fact, the orchestra seemed ready to play off just about everyone (“Can people at home hear this music,” Cate Blanchett asked at night’s end, winning for Blue Jasmine). But the winners quickly wised up to the fact that you should keep talking, anyway, and just imagine you were drowning out an annoying cellphone conversation that happened to be an orchestra.
• Aaron Paul, speaking on behalf of the Breaking Bad crew after it won for best TV drama series, was left to give a speech, which was: “Yeah, bitch! Thank you!” That, fans of the show know, is the closing line from the poem “Ozymandias.”
• After an unusually bad compendium of clips from the movies of Woody Allen, Oscar-winner Diane Keaton accepted a lifetime achievement award on his behalf. Discussing her long personal and professional relationship with Allen, she ended by singing the sweet little old song: “Make new friends, but keep the old. One is silver, and the other’s gold.” Jennifer Lawrence can live to 110, and she will never be able to do that. Maybe she shouldn’t, but still, she won’t be able to.
• Emma Thompson, handing out the award for best screenplay, arrived on stage in party mode, with a cocktail in one hand and her shoes in the other. She has the greatest midcareer hairstyle I have ever seen.
• Presenter Melissa McCarthy pretended to have been hit on the head with a sandbag and was under the impression she was Matt Damon. It made no sense, but who cares?
• In the television awards, the biggest surprises were FOX’s Brooklyn Nine-nine’s win as best TV comedy, and Andy Samberg’s as best actor, TV comedy, for that show. Both fully deserved – it’s a terrific sitcom – but still unexpected.
• Did Kerry Washington win best TV actress for the ABC drama Scandal, as I hoped? No. She never seems to win, as I hope. It was Robin Wright for her cool, hard and admittedly exemplary work in Netflix’s House of Cards.
• Leonardo DiCaprio, presenting the award for best actress in a movie drama, pronounced Philomena “Philomania.” Judi Dench probably would have turned that down.
