The Real Julia
Although Julia Roberts appeared on the cover of Redbook, she had not posed for the magazine. To create the image, Redbook combined an image of her head, from a paparazzi shot taken at the 2002 People’s Choice awards, with a shot of her body taken four years previously at the movie premiere of Notting Hill. Ironically, the headline on the magazine read “The Real Julia.” Julia Roberts complained, and Redbook apologized. Roberts’ publicist responded, “it’s a shame they didn’t use the body that went with the head, because it was a great Giorgio Armani pantsuit.”
