Before her latest film August: Osage County hits theaters, ET flashes back on Julia Roberts' career over the decades.
Now considered one of the most iconic American actresses of the modern era, Roberts wasn't always the confident star that she is now, as she admits in ET's flashback with Roberts in 1999.
"To me, I was still really shy and insecure and thrust into this very odd working environment where one would imagine you have to be very confident and I wasn't," Roberts says of her early acting days in films like film Pretty Woman and Steel Magnolias.
Watch the video above for a look back on Julia Roberts through the years, and watch her on the big screen in August: Osage County, which opens December 27.
If Julia Roberts is nominated for an Oscar this year, that means she'll have an Oscar nomination in four consecutive decades (80's, 90's, 00's, 10's) - that's some longevity for your ass. WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE OLD-SCHOOL JULIA ROBERTS FILM?
