Despite an Oscar® and the many characters she's played over the years, Julia says she has the best role right now as a mother. Hazel and Phinnaeus, her twins with husband Danny Moder, are almost two years old! "I just love them. They're fun and happy and honest and just fill me with so much joy," Julia says.
Motherhood has had some unexpected surprises for Julia, too. "I guess I didn't realize that you could really just like your children as much as your friends, you know? I just enjoy interacting with them," Julia says. "I'm interested in their point of view."
Since becoming a mother, Julia says she's changed. "I definitely feel that I've expanded as a human being," she says. "I have more empathy and more compassion, I think, because I feel so blessed on a level that I can't even wrap my mind around really."
