Julia Roberts and Gwyneth Paltrow: Hollywood moms
13:30 21 January 2005
Julia Roberts is set to star in a clutch of Hollywood movies - scrapping plans of maternity leave.
The actress, who vowed to devote the next five years to bringing up Phinnaeus and Hazel, who born two months ago, has agreed to provide the voice in forthcoming animation 'Charlotte's Web' and is in talks to star in the romantic comedy 'The Seven Year Switch'.
The screen beauty is also said to be planning to make a movie about pregnancy, after reportedly obtaining film rights to British novel 'The Family Way'.
Last August the 37-year-old revealed being a mum was her priority, saying: "I'm not planning anything. I just want to play as it comes."
Her trainer, Kathy Kaehler, added at the time: "Julia says she's taking at least five years off from movie-making to raise her twins.
"She's waited so long to be a mother, and fought so hard to be one, that she wants to devote all her time to her babies."
Meanwhile, fellow new mother Gwyneth Paltrow has also signed up for a new movie, 'Running With Scissors' - despite vowing to have a career break when daughter Apple was born last May.
