-In her new Marie Claire cover story, Julia Roberts talks about how Hollywood has changed during her lifetime: “When I started, there wasn’t any social networks, the internet barely existed, people couldn’t take photos with their mobile phones.

Building a career was a lot more methodical 30 years ago.”
