There’s only one Julia Roberts in our hearts, but it turns out there’s at least NINE other women Julia Roberts in the world! Jimmy Kimmel brought the actress together with nine special ladies who share her name, and each of them are just as fabulous.
Julia Roberts, 48, is used to living the good life, and as it turns out, it has its perks for the non-famous Julia Roberts gals of the world. While visiting Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Julia got the surprise of a lifetime, meeting nine other ladies named Julia Roberts. They all lead different lives, but Jimmy Kimmel, 48, knew they’d have an instant connection. Click through to watch what happens!
“Have you ever met another Julia Roberts?” Jimmy asks his guest, who it turns out, has just one time. But Jimmy was about to change that, unfurling the “Wall of America,” a gigantic screen allowing them to video chat with nine different women from all over the United States — and one in Canada — all sharing her name. What a surreal experience!
The Julias comes from all different backgrounds and ages, and have had their shares of benefits and detriments from sharing a name with the famous actress. One Julia stayed in India, and was called “Eat Pray Love” the entire time. Okay, that’s really funny — and famous Julia thought so, too.
Another Julia made reservations at a hotel in Palm Springs, and when she showed up for her vacation the concierge was visibly upset — but she had the absolute nicest room in the place! Nice! Another Julia always gets reservations at restaurants, no matter where she’s going, and how happening the joint. Same experience, though; hosts and hostesses are always a little bummed when it’s not the actress. Oh well, that’s not her problem!
But one poor Julia runs into trouble because of her name. This Julia, a much older, woman of color, is always under suspicion when she uses her credit card. She has to pull out her drivers license to prove to clerks that she’s actually Julia Roberts, and hasn’t stolen a credit card from the actress! Famous Julia was frustrated that this wasn’t applied to the middle-aged guy who actually stole her credit card!
