In terms of movie pay, Julia Roberts has broken through a glass ceiling, which has contributed to the growth of her net worth. She catapulted to superstardom at the age of just 22 thanks to the success of Pretty Woman, and the source of both her paychecks and her legacy is down to one thing: her unending drive and determination.
Roberts has been honoured with a number of accolades throughout the course of her career, including three Golden Globe Awards, and she has been shortlisted for a total of four Academy Awards. As of now Julia Roberts has an estimated net worth of $250 Million.
Early Life of Julia Roberts

The King children attended an acting school that was run by Martin Luther King, Jr. and Coretta Scott King in Decatur, Georgia. Following the finalisation of her parents’ divorce in early 1972, Roberts relocated to Smyrna, Georgia, where she attended and graduated from Campbell High School.
After finishing high school, she enrolled in Georgia State University for a semester before relocating to New York City to pursue an acting career. Once she arrived in New York, she joined with Click Modeling Agency and began taking acting training.
Julia Roberts’s older brother Eric Roberts and niece Emma Roberts are also actors, despite the fact that Julia and Eric were estranged for a long time prior to 2004.

She won the Golden Globe in 1989 for her supporting performance in the film Steel Magnolias. The role of Pretty Woman was the catalyst for her meteoric rise to fame. Films like “Flatliners,” “Hook,” “Dying Young,” “The Player,” “I Love Trouble,” “Michael Collins,” and “Notting Hill” followed soon after in the ’90s.
Both “Valentine’s Day” and “Eat, Pray, Love” from 2010 starred her. She co-starred with Tom Hanks in the 1993 comedy flick Larry Tomatoes.

How Many Houses Does She Own?
Roberts has a global portfolio of real estate. She paid $6.4 million in 2003 for a Malibu beachfront lot, demolished the original 6,000-square-foot home, and constructed a new, solar-powered, environmentally friendly estate. She began renting out the home in 2018 for $10,000 a month after putting it on the market.
She has another $6.84 million Malibu mansion that she bought with her own money. She also has a $2.5 million ranch in Taos, New Mexico, where she and Daniel Moder got married. Her residence in Manhattan, New York, was purchased for $4 million in 2010.
A home in Kauai’s Hanalei Bay cost Julia $13.37 million in 2011. Back in April of 2015, she put the house on the market for little under $30 million. She made a $16.2 million profit off of the sale in November of 2016. Mike Fleiss, best known as the man behind “The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette,” made his fortune with the sale.
Who is She Romantically Linked With?
Jason Patric, Liam Neeson, Kiefer Sutherland, Dylan McDermott, and Matthew Perry are just a few of the famous actors with whom Roberts has been linked romantically.

On the shooting of her 2000 film “The Mexican,” she became friends with cameraman Daniel Moder. She was seeing actor Benjamin Bratt, when Moder was still wed to Vera Steimberg. A year and a half after finalising his divorce from Steimberg, on July 4, 2002, Moder and Roberts tied the knot in Taos, New Mexico.
On March 1, 2012, Roberts made headlines when she reportedly insured her smile for $30 million.
Her Extravagant Lifestyle
When actress Julia Roberts travels, she like to do so in a fashionable manner. It has been reported that Robert has been seen flying on a private jet on multiple occasions. Her favourite thing to do with her family is to take extravagant trips, which often come with a hefty price tag.
Roberts places a high priority on maintaining the finest possible physical condition and so invests a significant amount of money on hiring an experienced personal trainer. Her fitness is helped along by her trainer, Kathy Kaehler. Kaehler’s list of celebrity clients includes the likes of Kim Kardashian and Drew Berrymore, amongst a great many others.
