Why Julia Roberts doesn’t like to go to the movies anymore
- by admin
The actress and writer Julia Roberts is reportedly unhappy with how Hollywood treats her on the red carpet.
She recently tweeted that “I have been doing the red carpets for more than 10 years now, I have NEVER been treated like this.
I know that I am one of the lucky ones, I am not alone.”
The actress was responding to a tweet by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) on Thursday in which Roberts said she was “shocked” that the Oscars had changed from a tradition of showcasing the best performances from the year before to an award show of “films, shows, and performances that are only the latest, most exciting product from the studios, that are so far removed from the lives of the people they serve.”
“I was shocked by the changes, I was outraged by the treatment,” Roberts told Variety at the Academy Awards.
“It’s a sad state of affairs.”
A spokesperson for the Academy responded on Friday that “the Academy is always on the lookout for new ways to make the world more inclusive.”
“We believe that the best way to bring people together is to bring their experiences to the table,” they said.
“We will continue to look for new opportunities to make this more inclusive and to make films that reflect our community’s aspirations for the future.”
“This is not an Oscar for everyone,” she added.
“But we can all celebrate that this year’s Academy Awards will include more diversity in the categories.”
The Oscars are held each year on February 26.
In her tweet, Roberts noted that she had not attended the ceremony since she was a child.
“What’s sad is that my parents didn’t go,” she wrote.
“I still have my mom’s photo in my house and my dad’s photo is in my office.
