    Julia Roberts has been a Hollywood staple for so long at this point that her career could legally rent a car if it were a person.

    That era was the site of the first time Julia Roberts was recognized as a movie star by a stranger in public — she just happened to be....indisposed at the time.


    "I was in the bathroom, and a voice suddenly said 'Girl in stall number one, were you in Mystic Pizza?' and suddenly a pen and piece of paper went [under the stall]."


    "I said '...Uh-huh! My hands are...busy!'"


    You handled this well, Julia.
