Is Julia Roberts Still On The A-List?

You may have noticed that there hasn’t really been a “Julia Roberts Movie” out there for quite some time. Oh, sure, she got a little Oscar buzz for Charlie Wilson’s War, and she’s popped up in those Ocean’s movies, but those aren’t really the kinds of movies that made her the A-lister she is. Or should we say was?

The Hollywood Reporter is suggesting that this weekend’s box office performance of Duplicity, a sexy con-game flick she stars in with Clive Owen, will be the test of whether or not she still has that magical drawing power she had before she put Hollywood on the back burner in order to start her family back around 2001. Winning her Oscar for Erin Brockovich likely made her comfortable enough with her status to scale it back like that. A marriage and three kids later, including twins, she’s stepping up to the plate once again with this project from Michael Clayton director Tony Gilroy, and it’s either going to be called a “comeback” or a sign of career trouble.

Do you think she’s still got it, or has the world moved on from America’s Sweetheart?

Check out these clips of Julia and Clive from Duplicity.
