Julia Roberts is set to appear on the big screen later this year as the Evil Queen, in the Tarsem Singh directed Snow White movie, Mirror Mirror. Julia has admitted that she was not initially won over by the idea but then Tarsem managed to persuade her to take the role.
Roberts explained, "The one-sentence pitch on the phone, 'Hey, they're doing a Snow White adaptation,' didn't grab my attention. Then Tarsem lured me in his luring way, and, after looking at the script, I realized there was really something there."
Lily Collins then added, "It was an absolute honour for (Roberts) to even touch my hair. To be in scenes with somebody you grow up admiring was really something. Her character was being so mean, but all I wanted to do was smile and giggle, because I was so happy."
Before Julia concluded, "It was fun to play this villain, because there aren't real rules of syntax or reality that apply to her. I could do anything, and just go off the rails in any direction at any time, and it would make sense to me. Without naming names, I drew from a couple of people I know better than I wish I did, and found it very fun and helpful."
Mirror Mirror is set to be released on March 30 in the US and April 2 in the UK.
