Aside from being one of the most famous actresses in the world, Julia Roberts has always been very private about her family.

Roberts revealed she believed in raising her children without spoiling them, which included keeping them in the dark about her celebrity status. As Julia told Express.co.uk in a 2014 interview:

They don’t know what I do for a living. That hasn’t really entered their life yet. They are just little kids and I’m just their mom, so there’s no coping with anything. They’ll find out one day, but by the time they’re teenagers they’ll have stuff in their lives that’s far more interesting than what their parents’ jobs are.
