Julia Roberts turned to Meryl Streep's daughter Grace Gummer for parenting advice in order to best prepare her own children for life as a celebrity offspring.

Movie icon and mum of three Roberts teamed up with the 25 year old to shoot romantic comedy Larry Crowne last year and she admits she picked up some good tips from Gummer on how to keep her kids grounded.

She tells Vanity Fair, "Grace comes up and goes, 'Gosh, it's so sweet seeing all your kids on the set. It reminds me of when I was little, and I would go see my mum at work.' I asked, 'Were you happy?' Suddenly, I thought, here is a source of information.

"I said, 'How old were you when you realised your mom was Meryl Streep?' She said, 'I think I was probably nine when I put that all together.' I said, 'Were you cool with it?' She said, 'Yeah, it was fine. There was no trauma.' So that was hopeful."
