Julia Roberts: 5 of Her Movies to Stream Right Now
Worth an estimated $200 million, Julia Roberts is among the most bankable actresses in Hollywood. Throughout her iconic career, she’s starred in many movies. From bringing in big numbers at the box office to giving an Oscar-winning performance in Erin Brockovich (2000), her time in the entertainment industry has been filled with memorable roles. Find out how to watch seven movies starring Roberts ahead.
1. ‘Notting Hill’
Need a romantic comedy? Turn on Notting Hill. Set in the charming neighborhood of Notting Hill in London, England, bookstore owner William Thacker (Hugh Grant) accidentally spills orange juice all over Anna Scott (Roberts), an American movie star. After their awkward first encounter, a romance begins.
As Anna, Roberts uttered the cheesy but memorable line, “I’m also just a girl, standing in front of a boy, asking him to love her,” in Notting Hill.
Watch Notting Hill for free with a subscription to HBO Now or rent it for $3.99 on Amazon Prime Video. Unfortunately for Hulu and Netflix users, the rom-com isn’t on either streaming platforms.
2. ‘Ben Is Back’
Holly Burns (Roberts) is surprised to see her son, Ben Burns (Lucas Hedges), a teen with a drug addiction return home on Christmas Eve. The R-rated film spans 24 hours and tells the story of how the family reacts to Ben’s return.
Hulu subscribers can stream Ben Is Back for free. The film is also available to rent on Amazon Prime Video for $3.99.
3. ‘My Best Friend’s Wedding’
Two years before she starred Notting Hill, Roberts gave us another one of her most well-known performances. In 1997, she played Julianne Potter in My Best Friend’s Wedding, a woman who realized she loved her best friend, Michael O’Neal (Dermot Mulroney), after he told her he’d gotten engaged.
With only days before the wedding, Julianne makes it her mission to tell Michael how she feels and get him to end his engagement to Kimberly Wallace (Cameron Diaz).
My Best Friend’s Wedding is available to stream for free with a subscription to Hulu. Don’t have Hulu? Rent it for $3.99 on Amazon Prime Video.
4. ‘Valentine’s Day’
As the name suggests, Valentine’s Day (2010) is about Valentine’s Day and the expectations that come with it. The film follows couples at various points in their relationship as well as single people as they experience Valentine’s Day.
Roberts stars in the film alongside a huge ensemble cast made up of Jessica Alba, Kathy Bates, Jessica Biel, Bradley Cooper, Eric Dane, Patrick Dempsey, Hector Elizondo (Princess Diaries), Jamie Foxx, Jennifer Garner, Topher Grace, Anne Hathaway, Taylor Lautner, Ashton Kutcher, Queen Latifah, and more.

Adapted from the book of the same name by R. J. Palacio, 2017’s Wonder is about August “Auggie” Pullman (Jacob Tremblay), a boy with facial differences, as he goes to elementary school. Roberts plays his mom, Isabel, opposite Owen Wilson as Nate.
