Julia Roberts loves sewing.

The 'Eat, Pray, Love' actress - who has five-year old twins Hazel and Phinneaus and three year-old Henry with husband Danny Moder - has created a craft room in her house where she retreats to when she needs quiet time away from her family.

She said: "There's one little room in my house which is filled with all my clutter and bits and pieces. My sewing machine is up there, and all my knitting stuff. It's a place where I can go to relax and unwind. I don't get to spend a lot of time up there, but at least I know it's there."

The 42-year-old star also admitted raising her family has left her little time to look after her appearance, but insists she no longer cares about luxury beauty treatments.

She added: "It's a terrific trade off. Maybe I don't have the time for pedicures anymore, but who cares if my feet look bad? I'm happy.

"When you're a mother, you don't have the luxury of sitting around anymore. I look back on the pre-children days and, quite honestly, I don't know what I did with all my spare time."
