Julia is on the cover of the new issue of Entertainment Weekly.

“Let’s call it a jubilee!” Julia Roberts quips when reminded that this year is the 30th anniversary of her big-screen debut in 1988’s Satisfaction. The film is mostly forgettable, save for the star’s first major role. But what followed was hit after hit: Pretty Woman. Sleeping With the Enemy. My Best Friend’s Wedding. Notting Hill. Erin Brockovich. Wonder. So a lavish anniversary gala isn’t that far out of left field. “I’ve been saying [I’ve been working] 30 years for 20 years,” jokes the 51-year-old actress in this week’s EW cover story (the photo shoot was so beautiful there are actually TWO different covers). “No, it feels like an accomplishment. If you made watches for 30 years, you would be proud of that.”

While she has yet to unveil a Julia Roberts line of timepieces, the Oscar winner does have two projects this fall that are already garnering acclaim and awards talk: The actress takes on her first major TV-series role as a caseworker on Amazon Prime Video’s paranoia thriller Homecoming, which begins streaming Nov. 2. Then she plays a mother struggling to keep her drug-addicted son clean and sober in Ben Is Back, out Dec. 7. Both roles are complicated women but hinge on Roberts’ innate likability. “Her baseline of charisma and talent is so high that her real skill is being able to not have anything diminish that,” says Homecoming costar and good friend Dermot Mulroney. Adds Back writer-director Peter Hedges, “She’s a movie star who happens to be a great actress, and that’s not always the case.”

Roberts filmed both projects within weeks of each other, and now they’re being released in similar proximity. “I feel like it would be nice if they came out a little further apart so I could rest on my laurels a bit,” she admits over a salmon wrap and sweet potato fries at a Malibu restaurant. “At press conferences, one person will ask you something about Homecoming and then you get super invested in that whole idea, and then someone else asks a question about Ben Is Back, and so it’s a little dizzying.” So you don’t experience similar whiplash, dear reader, we took the liberty of giving you two Julia stories for the price of one.

OMG! LOVE HER! “The proof is in the pudding.”

Wednesday night, Julia was all smiles as she premiered her first-ever TV series, “Homecoming.”

Roberts crashed “Extra’s” interview with her co-star and friend for over 20 years, Dermot Mulroney, surprising him and our correspondent Tanika Ray.

On Monday, InStyle honored Julia Roberts with the 2018 Style Icon Award. But the actor didn’t take all the credit when she went up on stage. Of course, she thanked her stylist, her makeup artist, and her team for putting together her unforgettable looks, but one person, in particular, got a sweet shoutout: Roberts thanked her 22-year-old self for having the guts to wear whatever she wanted.

Roberts gave the customary speech when she accepted, noting that she never ever goes shopping, but manages to look great at every event thanks to her team — including stylist Elizabeth Stewart, who was also being honored tonight.

It’s not every day one can say they once saved Julia Roberts’ life.

But her “Homecoming” costar Shea Whigham can.

“Did she tell you how I saved her life?” Whigham asked Variety Wednesday night at the Amazon series’ premiere in Los Angeles.

The two were shooting a scene together on the first day of production when Whigham saw a flag — a large piece of fabric in a metal frame used to block the sun during filming — above them come loose from its base.

“It started flying toward her head and I didn’t really know her at the time and I had to jump in and sort of envelop her, which was really kind of weird. She was like, ‘What the hell?’ and then she saw the flag on the ground.”

Roberts confirms the incident.

“He did save my life,” the Oscar winner told Variety. “I do say he saved my life but if someone put my feet to the fire and ask, ‘Did he save your life?,’ I’d say, ‘He at least saved me a trip to the hospital.’”

Showrunner and director Sam Esmail said he watched it all go down on a monitor. “At first I wanted to yell at Shea,” he said. “He kind of jumped on her, but then I saw the flag.”

In lighter news from the set, Esmail revealed that he and Roberts enjoyed playing board games together.

“She great at mahjong and Anomia,” he said. “She got me hooked on mahjong.”

“Homecoming” starts streaming on Amazon on Nov. 2.

    InStyle.com gives highlights Julia’s style after awarding her the Style Icon Award last night.

    Tonight, InStyle honored Julia Roberts with the 2018 Style Icon Award. But the actor didn’t take all the credit when she went up on stage. Of course, she thanked her stylist, her makeup artist, and her team for putting together her unforgettable looks, but one person, in particular, got a sweet shoutout: Roberts thanked her 22-year-old self for having the guts to wear whatever she wanted.

    Roberts gave the customary speech when she accepted, noting that she never ever goes shopping, but manages to look great at every event thanks to her team — including stylist Elizabeth Stewart, who was also being honored tonight.

    “When you’re popular and tall, you just have these incredibly smart people to your house with racks of stunning things. And so, this award is for being good at saying, ‘Oh, I think that, that one,'” Roberts explained. “I went from pointing at the right stuff. That’s honestly the whole thing. I never go shopping. I just said I wanted to wear these shoes and that makes me somehow great in a very pretend way. ”

    But Roberts didn’t stop at her team. She explained that when she had just started out in the industry, without the luxury of having a team, she was left her own devices. It was that freedom that grounded her, reminding her that the whole A-list experience of red carpets, movie premieres, and awards shows are anything but ordinary. It was because of that naivety that Roberts wore whatever she wanted, even if it didn’t make any sense.

    “The great thing about being a nearly 51-year-old person is that 30 years in this business means that I can have incredibly smart people like Richard Curtis talk on my behalf and make me feel good about myself. It truly is about saying thank you, not for me, but for all the people that make me feel like myself in these very bizarre public instances,” Roberts said. “If I were to take any credit, I would thank 22-year-old version of me, who wore, ad nauseam, a sort-of-like high-ranking naval jacket that I found at a vintage store with inexplicable black-and-white horizontal striped leggings and thought I was fantastic. For that girl, I thank you.”

    The speech had one more tidbit: Roberts is a Jeff Goldblum stan just like everyone else — she wished him a happy birthday from the podium. If that’s not enough to cement her position as America’s sweetheart forever, nothing else will do it.

    Last night Julia attended the InStyle Awards where she was honored with the Style Icon Award.

    She wore a matching Lilac suit by Givenchy with designer Elizabeth Stewart. “Elizabeth is one of my closest friends and for us, it was just fun. [We have] a good sense of humor about it.”
