Julia Roberts in Milan at Gucci reminds us that scandals are not needed to become immortal

Few certainties survive in Hollywood in these dark times in which the tug-of-war between the studios and the star system still seems to be at sea, and the smile of Julia Roberts it’s one of them. Regardless of the passing time, of the roles that are becoming increasingly rarer and of projects – let’s face it – not quite as good as Ticket to Paradise, Julia Roberts seems to be moving beyond all of this to enjoy her age and continue to be who she has always been: a girl from Cobb County who never made a fuss about appearing at all costs but who, at the same time, never denied a smile to anyone who asked her. Regardless of the rule that advises famous faces to maintain an expression as statuesque and immobile as possible so as not to encourage wrinkles, Julia plays her game without caring about conventions. At the front row of the fashion show Guccithe first under the artistic direction of Saturday De Sarno after the controversial farewell of Alessandro Michele, the actress showed up in a simple outfit – a clean and elegant mouse gray suit -, her hair soft and fluffy and, it goes without saying, the smile alwayscapable of making not only the photographers who came to take her photo capitulate but also the public who never considered her a diva who got too big in her head.
