Julia Roberts says being a mother has helped her stop swearing.
The ‘Pretty Woman’ actress – who has three-year-old twins, Hazel Patricia and Phinnaeus Walter, and a six-month-old son, Henry Daniel, with husband Danny Moder – says being around her children has helped her kick her cursing habit.
She is quoted by Britain’s Daily Express newspaper as saying: “Being around children is good for me. Before, I was f***ing this and f***ing that. Now if there’s anyone under 3ft tall around, I don’t even think about cursing!”
Julia also said she has become more aware of environmental issues since having children.
She said: “I’m definitely more aware of the environment since becoming a mother – absolutely, one thousand per cent. My children are perfect, and you think, ‘How can I help sustain their state of bliss and progress?’ And really beating up the planet the way we have is not going to do that.
“I drive a biodiesel car. I try to set goals that are achievable and then once we get those down, find some more goals that are achievable and keep going a little bit, as opposed to saying, ‘I am going to be completely waste-free in my house’ and all this kind of stuff.
“It’s just a little bit at a time. And if we all did a little bit at a time, it would just be so impactful.”
