Julia Roberts Has Turned Green

Juila Roberts has taken environmental issues to heart. From the Pirus to recycling grocery bags, Julia Roberts is up with environmentalism. Go Julia.

Julia Roberts has gone positively goofy over the environment. In the cover story of Vanity Fair’s new “Green Issue,” writer Evgenia Peretz delivers this sycophantic assessment of the star’s suddenly greener-than-thou ways: “An admitted latecomer to environmental concerns, Roberts is proof that it’s never too late to start caring for the earth and that it can all start at home. From the Prius she drives and the solar-powered house she’s building in California to the metal cup she uses to go out for coffee, the grocery bags she religiously returns to the store for a nickel … Roberts firmly believes that the little things make a difference …” Aside from wondering how many private planes Roberts has flown on and how much energy it takes to power her various abodes, we just can’t shake the image of the zillionaire actress “religiously” returning grocery bags to the store for pennies.
