With three children and a loving husband at home, Julia says choosing her next movie has become more difficult. "I just made a decision to make a movie next year, and I found it was almost too big of a decision because I don't make it a lot," she says. "I'm out of the practice of making the decision."
When Oprah and Julia tried to slip away to have a drink at Julia's hotel, Oprah says Finn held onto his mom and said, "Mom, I don't want you to go. I don't want you to go."
"So I'm thinking, we're just going to go downstairs and have some bubbly water," Oprah says. "What happens when you want to go away to do a movie?"
Thankfully, Julia didn't have to go far to shoot some scenes in Charlie Wilson's War, but when she did have to travel, she says she consulted her family first.
"It's a real team effort in our house," she says. "Everything that goes on has to sort of pass everybody's approval. Danny and the kids, everybody has to want to go and be part of it or else it doesn't work. Moms know [what it's like] when you leave the house, and your kids are crying and saying, 'Don't go.' So I usually don't go."
