Hollywood actors may seem out of touch with the real world, but believe it or not there are times they’re just like us.

Julia Roberts recently sat down with Vogue to talk about the beginning of her career and the one regret she’s carried with her all this time.

“I couldn’t. It wasn’t in my cards,” Roberts, 56, said when asked about going to college.

“My family didn’t have the money. And I had no scholarship potential. That kind of thing,” she added.

Since having children and watching them go through the college process she’s experienced a “longing for that academic space.”

“I want to learn about anthropology! Where’s that academic space for someone like me? It doesn’t really exist, but…”


Roberts’ eldest sons, twins Hazel and Phinnaeus, left for college in Fall 2022. At the time she told Extra that it was “really thrilling” to see them head off to school, something she never got to experience.

“I wasn’t lucky enough to have a college experience. And so to see how it’s happening for them is really fascinating,” she said. “I’m just, I’m excited for them.”
