Julia Roberts Is A Snob?!

What a shocker, huh? Never would have guessed!

The Good Wife star Julianna Margulies regaled an interesting story during a recent interview. Seems almost 20 years ago, Julianna was a struggling actress with a job waitressing at a high-end restaurant in New York.

One fateful evening, who should come to dine at the joint but Julia Roberts herself. As Julianna recalls, she was rather rude to her. She left such a nasty impression on the actress that when the two finally met formally years later, Julianna called her out on it! Julianna explained

"She and I talked about it… I said, 'You know, I waited on you once.' And she said, 'Oh God, was I horrible?' I said, 'Yeah, kind of.' She said, 'I was young.' We were both 23, but she was a huge star at the time and there were 20 people around her. She admitted it, she was like, 'I'm so sorry.' Then she bought me dinner, and I adore her."

Well, at least she made it up to you! Imagine the zillions of other servers who weren't so lucky!

    Nice story. It makes you wonder, though: how does Margulies treat the minions who now serve her?

    She's already denounced Mel Gibson, and now called out the Pretty Woman. But what potential skeletons are in her closet?

    Just asking.



  2. 2

    That is a funny story.



  3. 3

    never EVER be rude to the people bringing your food and/or drinks. you will find yourself (rightly) consuming substances you did NOT order but which you deserve for being so rotten.
    people who are rude to waitstaff should go to a very special level of hell when they die; there's never a good excuse for it.



  4. 4

    I believe her…



  5. 5

    I love Julias old movies but the entire world knows she is an utter bitch. This again is old news Perez.



  6. 6

    she said that everyone kept moving and adding at her table and thats most of the reason



  7. 7

    So why is Julia still so rude at 42?



  8. 8

    And I would like to add that I was a waitress years ago…and if someone was rude to me I spit in their drinks and dropped their bread on the nasty kitchen floor…



  9. 9

    Kiss and make up already.

    Somehow I doubt Roberts would have been so "golly gee" if Julianna was still a waitress and was confronted with the fact 20 years later. We've seen her a couple of times in public and "polite" isnt a word Id use. Eric Roberts, on the other hand, is ultra friendly.

    Julianna Margulies is such a good actress.
    It's interesting to hear the other one knew she was a horrible bitch… just no excuse; I can't stand Julia Roberts. Bitch can't act her way out of a paper bag.



  12. 12

    Yeah, it was a different time. People were more snobby and were expected to be treated a certain way. Well at least she grew out of it.

    This is the dumbest post ever. Did anyone actually WATCH the show?

    She told David that Julia had 25 people with her and people were yelling across the table to talk to each other so Julia said "Lets all switch seats!" When they switched seats, they confused all of the waiters because the waiters were supposed to memorize orders according to where people are sitting. She said Julia didn't do it on purpose or maliciously, she didn't even know, but it made her night horrible. She told Julia later and she apologized and bought her dinner.

    It would help if people actually WATCHED THE SHOW. She clearly explains what happened, and Julia wasn't snobby or bitchy, she just gave the staff a headache because she kept suggesting the people in her party switch seats so people wouldn't have to yell across the table to talk to each other.

    I don't know who is running this lame ass site now, but it really is a FAIL.

    Ya Margulies she's sorry now. Now that you are traveling in her circles. But believe me….her age has nothing to do with it.
    Don't get the point of your story at all. I don't know who is more ignorant you or Julia.



  15. 15

    Re: GetItStraight – Oh….well that makes more sense. Not sure why Margulies feels the need to share this story. Does she think it makes her look good cuz she knows what its like to be the little guy?
    Kind of self serving if you ask me. Margulies thought she was too good for TV too didn't she?



  16. 16

    Birds of a feather flock together.



  17. 17

    Shocked that JR is a beotch? Did you catch her on that telethon? She looked like she was in pain talking to a "regular person". No surprise.



  18. 18

    I saw Letterman last night, apparently the person who wrote this post didn't.

    She didn't say she was a snob, she said her boss was demanding and Julia kept suggesting people switch seats cause people couldn't hear each other so the waiters were getting confused about whose food went to who. In my opinion, that isn't really anything to have to apologize for, though I guess it is common courtesy. She also said she got a massive tip.

    It must be a slow news day.



  19. 19

    I don't know anything about Marguiles but Julia Roberts is a completely fake bitch and she sucks as an actor.



  20. 20

    i cannot stand roberts, only liked her in stepmom. i want to see valentine's day, but i am disappointed that she and jessica alba are both in it. alba cannot act at all.



  21. 21

    Roberts is horrible to everyone who she feels is beneath her because that`s how most actors from nepotism act who never had to get a real job in their lives thanks to a famous relative.



  22. 22

    Re: tnieblas – u did that? really?



  23. 23

    I used to love Julia, but something about her now rubs me the wrong way.



  24. 24

    How true when you are young you do some pretty stupid things. I hope that she is a little more humble now.



  25. 25

    No surprise there - Julia has an enormous ego and sense of entitlement - Rupert Everett said of her in his bio - some women are so ambitious up close they smell like a man. Julianna is very forgiving - I wouldn't be. How many thousands of others did she shit on - what a bitch!



  26. 26

    to prove she has not changed - I still think it was excessively bitchy for her to keep saying she turned down the Blind Side on the red carpet at the golden globes - as if Sandra got her leftovers - she needs to lay off the booze too!



  27. 27

    Julia didn't cut her brother any slack. She is a homewrecker. She dumped keifer….she is the CEO of the corporation called Julia.



  28. 28

    I'm confused. So it's been confirmed that this isn't the whole story and Julia wasn't bitchy to Julianna, Julianna even said so and people are still bashing? Weird. I guess people will think whatever they want to regardless of the truth.

    She dumped Keifer because he cheated on her with a stripper, there were pictures.

    Her brother is a drug addict and alcoholic who has been in and out of rehab 100 times and a convicted wife beater

    Sorry, I like Sandra and Julia, but Sandra does get her leftovers. Julia turned down Speed, While You Were Sleeping, Demolition Man, Blind Side, and The Proposal all before they were offered to Sandra.

    It's a shame that most of the people on this board are women. Why isn't Russell Crowe ever called a homewrecker for sleeping with a very married Meg Ryan? Or Tom Hanks called a douche for cheating on his first wife with Rita Wilson?



  29. 29

    She's still a bitch. Ask anyone whos worked with her.



  30. 30

    buying her dinner is all it took to change her mind about her and start "adoring her"?!?



  31. 31

    I always knew she was a bitch and think she still is. Does anybody remember when she homewrecked Danny Moders (?) first marriage then wore a tshirt saying "Get Over It." or some shit. Ya, classy!



  32. 32

    Oh my bad it was "A Low Vera" directed at Danny's (now) ex-wife Vera.



  33. 33

    Re: tigrrrlilly – Amen, sister! I'll bet she only apologized because a FAMOUS person called her out, though. If she saw a random server in the grocery store, she'd call The Man! Since when is 23 considered young enough to still be an asshole? I thought the cut-off date was 18!



  34. 34

    I don't know if Julianna got and work done, but she looks amazing!



  35. 35

    And if it was just a particularly bad night and she has been nice to those zillion of other servers. You are a mess, Perez. What is going on with this stupidity. If you want to see nasty have a meal with Rod Stewart.



  36. 36

    I once gave a waitress the death glare for calling my boyfriend "Baby". I work in customer service and still can be a total bitch to those who give me bad service. Maybe she was a crappy waitress. And maybe Julia was having a bad day. It cant be that fun to be famous 24/7. No privacy.
