Julia Roberts finds life (and her roles) get better with age

By  | 

NEW YORK (AP) Julia Roberts says that she's finding more dynamic roles with age.

The 51-year-old actress stars in the upcoming indie drama "Ben Is Back" as the mother of a recovering addict home for the holidays.

She is also currently starring in the acclaimed Amazon series "Homecoming."

In an interview, Roberts says that "with age comes more complexity of possible parts."

Roberts also recently attended the Broadway musical adaptation of her 1990 breakthrough film, "Pretty Woman."

She said it was a slightly out-of-body experience watching lines she improvised on the spot now performed, almost three decades later, on stage.
