Following her appearance at the 2019 Golden Globe Awards, Julia Roberts hit the red carpet at the 2019 Critics’ Choice Awards held at Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, California.

She was nominated for Best Actress in a Drama Series for her portrayal of Heidi Bergman in Homecoming. However, Sandra Oh won for her performance as Eve Polastri in the British spy thriller television series Killing Eve.

According to Variety, Julia reportedly made $600,000 per episode of the psychological thriller television series that is based on the Gimlet Media podcast of the same name.

She left Homecoming after the first season as Sam Esmail felt that Heidi’s story was wrapped up completely at the end of the first season.

The 51-year-old Ben Is Back actress turned heads on the blue carpet in a custom embroidered tuxedo jacket with white pants from Louis Vuitton, black pumps from the same fashion house, and silver jewelry by Messika. Do you mind the messiness of the hair?

The sister of noted actor Eric Roberts and aunt of actress Emma Roberts, Julia is still one of the world’s highest-paid female performers.

While her salary for 1990’s Pretty Woman was “just” $300,000, she was paid an unprecedented $25 million for her role in the box office flop Mona Lisa Smile (2003).

Julia has been named the world’s most beautiful woman by People a record five times and was the highest-paid actress in the world throughout most of the 1990s and in the first half of the 2000s. She’s not surprisingly one of the richest actresses in Hollywood.

Four years earlier, Julia Roberts was also present at the premiere of “Secret in Their Eyes” held at the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles.

Giving her signature androgynous style a sexy twist, the then 48-year-old actress wore an embroidered white lace slip-style mini dress with a plunging neckline from Givenchy’s Spring/Summer 2016 collection.

She layered the look with a black tuxedo jacket, also by Givenchy, and highlighted her slim legs with a simple pair of Stuart Weitzman sandals.

Adding a hint of luxe and sparkle to the rather simple monochrome ensemble, she accessorized with diamond drop earrings and carried a black textured clutch with crystal embellishments.

Her best accessory, though, was her megawatt smile, which was accentuated with pink lipstick. To complete her effortlessly chic look, Julia wore her hair up into a messy updo.
