London, Dec 31 IANS | 11 months ago

Actress Julia Roberts, 46, says once a fussy director had asked her to remove her freckles for a movie role.


"One director wanted me to have two freckles taken off because he said it made my face look dirty," dailymail.co.uk quoted the "August: Osage County" star as saying.

However, the actress doesn't believe in fake beauty.

"I definitely think some of my older female peer group are deeply beautiful women. They have this thing that radiates from them. It's coming from this deep place of understanding who they are and what their purpose is. It creates a light," said Roberts, who has three children - Hazel and Phinnaeus, nine, and Henry, six, with husband Danny Moder.

The "Mirror, Mirror" star also said she looks at 'looking good' as an issue which is "a cultural obsession".

"I don't spend a lot of time in the mirror. I'm pretty efficient in terms of looking at myself and, to be honest, I don't think what you're talking about is a business demand - it's a cultural obsession," she added.
