Roberts Snubbs Oscars For Family Time
Hollywood actress Julia Roberts turned down an invitation to the Oscars - so she could spend the night at home with her children.
The former Best Actress Academy Award winner was offered a place at the glitzy Los Angeles event on 22 February (09), but decided not to attend. Roberts admits she is no longer a fan of star-studded awards ceremonies, and is much happier spending a cosy evening in with her husband, Danny Moder, and their three kids: four year old twins Hazel and Phinnaeus, and Henry, 20 months.
She says, "My husband had been away and just returned home so I felt it best to stay home and be with my family. That was my priority so we watched the show on television. My life at home gives me absolute joy." (LR/WNTET/MT)
