Julia has carved a hugely successful career over the years, having starred in the likes of My Best Friend's Wedding, Erin Brockovich and Ocean's Eleven, and was just 21 years of age when she first shot to fame.
She admitted: 'I was my priority, a selfish little brat running around making films.'
However, the beauty went on to admit she has completely changed, ever since she met her cinematographer love Danny, and welcoming their three children - twins Hazel and Finn, and son Henry.
She gushed of her partner: 'It was meeting Danny…finding my person. When I think about what makes my life my life, and makes sense and just shine inside of me, it's him. Everything has come from that for me.'
