Julia Roberts' actress niece, Emma, has a good luck tradition every time one of her movies is released - she visits her local cinema, buys a ticket and then leaves.

The "It's Kind of a Funny Story" star admits she doesn't even have to show up at the ticket office in disguise - because she rarely gets recognized.

Roberts tells WENN, "I go to the movie theater and I buy a ticket for good luck, but I don't stay and watch (the film).

"I can just show up because I don't get recognized that much, because I'm much smaller in person than people assume.

Julia Roberts' Black Lace Dress - Hot Or Not?

September 19th, 2010 10:31pm EDT
Julia Roberts
We think Julia Roberts looked a bit matronly at the "Eat Pray Love" Rome premiere on Thursday. The long black lace dress really didn't do much for her figure. What do you think?

Catholic Church leaders gave Julia's new movie the thumbs down for ignoring the faith. Catholic News Service officials in Washington, D.C. suggested faithful film fans should give the adaptation of Elizabeth Gilbert's bestselling travel memoir a miss because Roberts, as Gilbert, fails to seek spiritual guidance in Rome, Italy, during the 'Eat' section of the movie.

Last Exorcism
James Cameron's re-release of sci-fi epic "Avatar" was a flop at the box office over the weekend, as "The Last Exorcism" held on to a thin lead over bank heist movie "Takers."

The horror film came out on top, debuting with $21.3 million in earnings, followed closely by "Takers" - the crime drama starring Chris Brown, Hayden Christensen and Matt Dillon opened with $21 million.

But the figures were so close, experts have warned the films could make a switch in the number one and two spots ahead of Monday's final weekend results.

Jennifer Aniston's new sperm donor comedy has flopped at the box office, despite the actress' massive publicity campaign and her spat with newsman Bill O' Reilly.

O'Reilly took issue with comments Aniston made about wannabe mums seeking out donors, making her movie "The Switch" a big talking point - but even that wasn't enough to lure in film fans.

The movie, which co-stars Jason Bateman, opened with a disappointing $8.1 million and didn't even make the top five. It landed in eighth spot behind the debuts of "Twilight" spoof "Vampires Suck," "Lottery Ticket" and "Piranha 3D."

The film’s director, Ryan Murphy, explained how he talked America’s Sweetheart into it.

“Well, I didn’t want to do it with fat pads because I thought that would be awful and Julia would never do that as a great actor,” Murphy said. “So I think the thing that I did do to protect that was to shoot the movie in chronological o...

This past weekend, “The Other Guys,” starring Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg, unseated “Inception” for the top spot at the box office. Notorious for mediocre movies, August is typically the worst month of the year for any moviegoer who craves an inspired experience at the theater.

This August, however, may be different as “The Other Guys” has already gotten solid reviews from critics and a $35 million opening weekend. The re-teaming of Ferrell and writer/director Adam McKay has already spiced up the box office for the early part of August and several other titles makes one wonder if the re...
