Julia Roberts Brushes Off Woes

Julia Roberts gets over her problems quickly.

The 42-year-old actress - who has twins Hazel and Phinnaeus, five, and three-year-old Henry with second husband Danny Moder - admits she couldn't relate to author Elizabeth Gilbert's decision to take a year-long sabbatical to travel the world in order to find herself after her divorce.

Julia - who portrays the writer in new movie 'Eat, Pray, Love' - said: "I think we all go through phases of hardship. Hers is much bigger and broader - it's really more of a crisis in her life. We all go through some variation of that, whether we interpret it as a bad weekend or a bad moment in life.

"I come from the 'Pick yourself up, dust yourself off' attitude, but I had empathy for what she was going through and how she decided to go about solving it."

Despite raising three young children, the US actress insisted she didn't find it difficult moving her family around the world to be with her while she filmed scenes in Italy, India and Bali, admitting that the director had a harder job.

She added to Empire magazine: "I can organise three kids. The director Ryan Murphy and his team had to organise an entire production and a lot of gear and lights. It's a lot easier doing what I did."
