In her newest, Fireflies in the Garden, film A-lister, Julia Roberts plays a mommy.
Her child played by Ryan Reynolds as an adult — but when Julia's character is pregnant her son is played by her real-life son, Henry Daniel.
That's cause back in 2007 when Roberts made the movie she was knocked up. Now, seeing him as a baby bump on screen is an emotional experience for Julia.
“When I see it now, he’s this big boy who can dress himself and do all these things. It really is touching to see that,”
Jules said at the El Lay premiere of the movie.
Her character in Fireflies is not the best mother, but Julia can still relate with her struggle. She said of motherhood:
“I think it’s challenging for everybody in different ways. My challenges as a wife and a mother are very different from the ones portrayed in the movie, but I think for everybody it’s a hard challenge.”
Yes! Raising a person is quite the challenge.
Still, it's obvious that someone as maternal as Julia probably struggles a little less than the rest of us!
