VIDEO: Julia Roberts Reveals the One Way Her Daughter Is Just Like Her

The Eat Pray Love star dishes on the quality her little girl inherited -- and why she won't shoot a film without her kids


Sure, she's known as America's Sweetheart with the megawatt smile, but Julia Roberts insists that though her three kids -- twins Phinnaeus and Hazel, 5, and son Henry, 3 -- are "all so much my husband (Danny Moder)," there's one surprising quality her little girl inherited from her. "I guess when my daughter's me," she tells iVillage with a laugh.

Luckily, shooting the highly anticipated film, Eat Pray Love (in theaters Aug. 13) was a positive one for the 42-year-old actress, who spent months traveling around the world, touring exotic locations (from Bali to India) and indulging in pasta. But Roberts says she only agreed to the "extended vacation" on one condition: that her brood come along for the ride.

"It was the only way I could do it because I've never been away from my family," Roberts says. "I wouldn't have been able to be in a movie about emotions and feelings if I had left my heart in another country."

Watch our exclusive video interview to find out how Roberts juggles being a mom with her career and how she -- and her waistline! -- dealt with eating so much pasta.
