Julia Roberts wasn't always the movie icon we know her as today. During a recent episode of The Hollywood Reporter's Awards Chatter podcast, Roberts recalled the first time she realized she was becoming a household name. Of all the places this moment could have occurred, it turns out the actress was first made aware of her fame in a bathroom stall.


Roberts told the story of visiting her hometown movie theater. The area was incredibly familiar to her—she even used to work in the ice cream stand across the street!

"I went home to Georgia to visit my mom and my younger sister and we went to the movies."

But while visiting the bathroom in the theater, something unusual happened:

"It was after the movie was over and I was in the bathroom and there was a woman in the bathroom who said, 'Hey, girl in stall number one, were you in Mystic Pizza?'"




A bit taken aback, Roberts answered in the affirmative, and the woman proceeded to push something under the stall door, asking:

"Will you sign this?"




Realizing she had crossed a line into the public zeitgeist, Roberts kindly turned her down:

"'Uh, not right now.' And I thought, wait, this is different."




Ever since then, fans have reacted similar to Roberts' presence—even famous ones! Aquaman star Jason Momoa geeked out over meeting Julia Roberts when they both appeared on The Late, Late Show with James Corden.

"It's a great night for me! But I am just going to be floating on that all night!"

One thing is certain: after all these years, fans still love Julia Roberts!

That being said, sometimes those cringe moments go far past cringe. Sometimes they get to the point of no return awfulness because that's where our human nature took us in this moment.

I don't miss high school or the people in it. People who seem to have peaked in high school also weird me out. How? Why? I can definitely tell you that life got much more interesting the older I got (my 20s were way more fun than any of my time in high school). If you were to ask me if I have any regrets, I suppose I would say that I wish I had been more assertive and stood up for myself more. Depression has a way of complicating goals like that, though. Let me tell you: It feels nice to be so much healthier than I was then.

Some people don't take breakups very well. And those that don't can sometimes engage in behavior that others might view as bothersome, unsettling, even toxic.
