American actor Julia Roberts, known as the queen of rom-coms, feels that she has had too much life experience to convincingly star in a rom-com now.
While promoting her upcoming drama thriller series ‘Homecoming,’ she said that unless she gets the role of a parent, there is no “rom-com-ing.”
The 50-year-old said, “There came a point in my career where people thought I had turned on romantic comedies, which I love them, I love to be in them, I love to watch them,” Roberts explained. “But sometimes, they just don’t work at a certain point of life experience,” a leading daily quoted her statement.
In her upcoming drama series, Roberts will play the role of Heidi — a former caseworker at a government facility that helped soldiers transition back into the world as a civilian, who has now left her life behind and is haunted by paranoia, conspiracies, and memories she didn’t know existed.
Roberts built her career starring in some of the most enduring romantic comedies of the modern film era like ‘Pretty Woman,’ ‘My Best Friend’s Wedding’ and ‘Notting Hill.
