Julia Upset At Having To Work

JULIA ROBERTS was far from happy on the set of new movie MONA LISA SMILE - because she wanted to be at home with her husband DANNY MODER.

The actress started shooting the movie in the months after her 2002 wedding, and she made her feelings known that she didn't want to be acting.

In an interview carried out by showbusiness magazine ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY on the set, Roberts moaned, "I don't know what the f**k I'm doing here.

"I guess I'm preaching one thing and kind of doing the other, because I still have rice in my hair and I want to stay home and cook dinner.

"The movie's all about how it's OK for women to go off and have careers, but secretly I'm thinking, `What time do we get out of here?' "I'm 35-years-old and I'm able to see the ridiculousness in myself - I got to work, I get dressed up like a doll, a nice man puts lipstick on my mouth, and I say words. It's an elaborate dress-up."

In the interview, which appears in the new issue of Entertainment Weekly - to promote Mona Lisa Smile - Roberts, 35, admits she's also far from impressed with her young co-stars MAGGIE GYLLENHAAL, KIRSTEN DUNST and JULIA STILES.

She added, "They look like babies to me... I could hear my back creaking."
