JULIA ROBERTS FETES HER FAMILY

Surrounded by friends, Julia Roberts was seen leaving Gladstone’s restaurant in Malibu on Tuesday (October 5) after attending a family member’s birthday party.

The big screen beauty could be seen holding onto a baby bottle and small pink jacket as she attempted to make her way back to her car while being trailed by the paparazzi.

Meanwhile, Julia and fellow Oscar winner Meryl Streep are reportedly in talks to play mother and daughter in a big screen version of Tracy Letts‘ Pulitzer-winning play August: Osage County.

First premiering in 2007 in Chicago, the play captured a Pulitzer for drama and the Tony for best play, as well as one for best actress for Deanna Dunagan.

The play focuses on the buried pains and present conflicts of a family after its patriarch dies. Meryl would take the role of the drug-addicted matriarch and Julia that of the eldest daughter, whose estranged husband has had an affair with one of his students.

ER producer John Wells would direct the film from a screenplay written by Letts for the Weinstein Co.

The film would shoot next summer.
