The hottest gossip circulating the realm of Hollywood is regarding Julia Roberts‘ belly: pregnant or not pregnant. Yes, that is (currently) the question, although
not nearly as poetic as Shakespeare’s soliloquy, the entertainment industry is officially
on “womb watch.”
For the past few weeks, the 46-year-old mother of three, has been wearing loosely
fitted (read comfy) clothing. So, inevitably, rumors are birthed, that the actress must obviously be pregnant. I mean, how dare the Pretty Woman obscure her body? That’s just plain rude, Julia, and totally out of context for a mother and wife. After appearing at the 2013 BAFTA awards in a short, but baggy dress, the world assumes there’s a bun hiding in that oven. Am I the only person who is completely unaware of this secretly slutty closet Julia Roberts is known for wearing clothing from?
And I don’t know about you guys, but usually after Thanksgiving, amongst all the
holiday baking, wine drinking, and consuming of leftovers, I can’t wait to expose my body in a see through, form-fitted gown resembling a negligee. Besides, maybe those sweat pants are all that fit her right now. Ahh, how dare anyone suggest weight gain as a potential reason for a more relaxed style (side note: her body looks the same to me). Still, it’s a possibility typically rejected by the entertainment industry. Sorry, but apparently you can’t sit with Hollywood, Julia.
Suspicion has further erupted since sources claim that Roberts was “dressed down”
(translation: jeans, roomy shirt and fitted jacket) upon arriving at the home of her in-laws. She was caught wearing what? Everyday wear to visit her husband’s parents? How rogue and inappropriate! Typically, around family, I sport high heels and a spandex tube dress. I sigh with sarcasm because her most casual of outfits drastically triumphs my go to: yoga pants, a ponytail and my ex’s huge t-shirt.
For the record, if reps confirm the speculations that Julia Roberts is indeed expecting, I take it all back. (You’re welcome, future self.) Phew! I digress, but damage control, done.
