Julia Roberts Is Top Hollywood Hottie

26 July 2000 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Pretty Woman (1990) star Julia Roberts is Hollywood's hottest celebrity, according to a veteran industry analyst. The beautiful actress is at the top of Kames Ulmer's Y2K roster of the 200 "hottest" actors and actresses in the business, due to be published this autumn. "James Ulmer's Hollywood Hot List: The Complete Guide to Star Power" places Meg Ryan eighth - the only other woman to be in the top 20. Between Roberts and Ryan, are Tom Hanks, Tom Cruise, Mel Gibson, Bruce Willis, John Travolta, and Brad Pitt, with Leonardo DiCaprio and Will Smith ranking ninth and tenth. The book's bottom 10 include, Helena Bonham-Carter, Halle Berry, Andy Garcia and Elisabeth Shue, with Steven Seagal placed last. Hollywood Hot List is a spin-off of the author's "The Hot List", an annual industry index that measures the commercial clout of nearly 2, 000 movie stars and directors - producers and other filmmakers are excluded from the new book - from around the globe. Using the Ulmer Scale, the guidebook rates stars based on factors such as bankability, professionalism, career management, willingness to travel and promote, acting talent, and acting range. »

Julia Roberts In Car Accident In Mexico

18 May 2000 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Julia Roberts had a dangerous brush with disaster when her a tire on her four-by-four sports car exploded on a Mexican road. The Pretty Woman (1990) star is currently living in the tiny village of Real de Catorce in Central Mexico, filming her new movie Mexican, The (2001) with Hollywood heart-throb Brad Pitt. But although the movie cast and crew are living a life of luxury far removed from the harsh reality of rural Mexico, it seems not even film stars are immune to the perilous road system. Local EDUARDO CASTANEDA says, "Julia was driving back from Matahuala up the cobbled street to Real de Catorce. The road is really rough and uneven, and half way back the car she was in blew a tire... It could have been serious but fortunately for Julia, the car just came to a stop and the driver got on the radio for another, which came and picked her up." »

18 April 2000 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Child movie star Haley Joel Osment was surprisingly stuck for words when stunning actress Julia Roberts chatted him up. The Sixth Sense, The (1999) star was shocked to silence when he ran into the Pretty Woman (1990) actress at a recent Hollywood event. An onlooker says, "Julia went straight up to Haley and told him how much she admired his work. He's only a little boy, and being approached by such a legend was too much for him to cope with... He simply stood and stared. He didn't know what to say, he was stunned. Julia added that she'd love to work with him in the future and left. I think Haley thought he'd died and gone to heaven." »

Elizabeth Taylor Begged To Return To Acting

17 April 2000 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Hollywood big shots are locked in a race to bring movie legend Elizabeth Taylor back to the big screen. The icon was honoured last night in Los Angeles with the VANGUARD AWARD at the GAY AND LESBIAN ALLIANCE AGAINST DEFAMATION AWARDS (GLAAD) - and a bunch of celebs used the occasion to beg Liz to come back to the limelight. Pretty Woman (1990) director Garry Marshall says it would be his dream to direct her comeback. He explains, "I hope she will do another picture and I really hope to be a part of it. We tried to convince her to do Runaway Bride (1999) but we never quite got that one off the ground... I'd like to see her do something like a regal role rather than a down-street girl or something. I think something with elegance, maybe there is a Queen picture that hasn't been done." Meanwhile pal and award presenter Carrie Fisher admitted the idea has also been dominating her professional agenda too. She adds, "I'm writing a variety of scripts and a novel and I've written something for her so we'll have to wait and see." »
