Julia Roberts Reveals New Hobbies, Talks Larry Crowne

Michael Söze

Hollywood actress Julia Roberts, who stars along side Tom Hanks in the new film Larry Crowne, has taken up some hobbies so that her “brain doesn’t turn to mush” as she gracefully ages.

Roberts -- the "pretty woman" who is a mommy to three children with husband Daniel Moder -- has began sewing.

"I've started sewing classes recently. I made some big pillows for the kids and some really simple pants for Danny. I'm also taking piano lessons with my kids," the 43-year-old star told Contactmusic in a recent interview.

"In your 40s, you're supposed to learn new things so your brain doesn't turn to mush. So now I'm practicing piano scales," she added.

According to Roberts, at one time she did not “appreciate” the spare time her career provided her with, but now that she is a mother, she realizes the benefit and thus spends the majority of it with her family.

"I must have had bags of spare time before I had children but I don't know what I did with it and I didn't appreciate it. But it's such a terrific trade off."
