LOS ANGELES, Dec. 12 (UPI) --
Julia Roberts isn't even sure when she made the move from playing ingenues to portraying grown women in Hollywood movies.
"I see the adult phase of my career having gone on for quite some time," the 36-year-old Roberts told reporters in Los Angeles recently.
"I probably wouldn't pinpoint a transition. I'd just say that I think it existed before being in a movie with a group of young girls, which seems to illustrate my age more clearly to everybody."
"Mona Lisa Smile," co-starring Roberts as a 1950s-era teacher and Julia Stiles and Kirsten Dunst as her students, opens next week.
