Did Julia Roberts get bolt-ons at some point or is she all-natural?

Here are some pics from yesterday’s TIFF photocall for August: Osage County, with Julia Roberts once again being the Julia Roberts-star in the Julia solar system in the Julia universe. All of those other bitches can just step off. It’s all about JULIA! Except that I’m guessing many of you are giving Ewan McGregor a good, long, HARD look. Unf. Sure. Just so. Once you get past the pure Scottish Thunder that is Ewan McGregor, throw your gaze over to Julia Roberts. Specifically, look at her chest. Um… are those new?!

I was looking though some older photos of her, and I can’t decide. I know that way back in 2009, when she was filming Eat Pray Love, her chest looked normal, which is to say it looked like it always did – like she was barely A/B-cup. And then in 2010-11, she looked particularly titsy, although she did gain some noticeable weight in 2010. And don’t start in with the “you would know this if you had kids, your boobs get bigger!” Your boobs get bigger when you’re pregnant and nursing, but do they get bigger three years after giving birth?

That being said, I do have my doubts. Usually, Hollywood boob jobs are pretty obvious, but Julia’s boobs don’t have any of the markers I normally associate with bolt-ons. Like, they’re not sitting absurdly high on her chest. They don’t look hard or plastic-y. They look appropriate on her body. Now, does this mean that they’re all natural? Eh. It’s possible that she got some new boobs in 2010 and they’ve just “settled” so they look more natural now. It’s also possible that when she gained weight circa 2010, her boobs got bigger and then never got smaller when she lost the weight. I don’t know. I’m just theorizing.

    pushup bra + multiple kids

    thought i’d bet she’s probably had them lifted (not enhanced). Her face has had some work down too (especially the nose).

  2. Zimmer says:

    She might just have a great bra. I found a great one that gives me quite a nice bust, working from a large A cup.

  3. YummyMummy says:

    After the kids she probably got a lift and small implant. She looks good.

  4. Leni says:

    Dermot M. And Juliette L. both look wonderful. What knobby knees Julie R. has and the other two look underdressed and overdressed in that order.

  5. Sallie says:

    I think its a pushup bra or just a good bra in general. Seriously bras make a difference.

  6. j.eyre says:

    It’s a good question. How about you put up a few more pictures of Ewan so I can make a more informed decision?

  7. GiGi says:

    She’s probably premenopausal (which can go on for 10 years – ugh) – I’m only 34 but have a family history of early menopause. And my breasts are enormous. Like I was always a 32 C and now I’m a 32 F. Those look like hormone boobs to me.

  8. gogoGorilla says:

    She’s gained a lot of weight. Look at her arms. Not body shaming – just saying, many women get really busty when they put on weight.

  9. lenje says:

    Tummy cupping — alleged preggo pose! :) ))

    I didn’t pay attention Julia’s chest, but now that I do, it does look like she’s gaining a little weight. Which is totally fine, she still looks great.

  10. DanaG says:

    Could be a bit of weight and a great bra. She looks great no matter what.

  11. Roxy says:

    Who cares?!!! Real or fake, they look good!! She’s definitely got more sex appeal now! ;)

  12. Lisa says:

    I think she has gained some weight plus a push up bra. I don’t even like her, but I think she looks great. Very age appropriate and pretty. Love the hair color, too.

  13. pao la says:

    I. Can’t. Stand. This. Woman.

  14. chloe says:

    God Ewan is gorgeous. I like the floral dress Julia is wearing, as for the boobs I’m in my 40′s and have gone up several sizes in the past couple of years (which my husband loves).

  15. Maureen says:

    I think she’s natural. I also think she still has some weight on her (and it looks great, very healthy) and probably wearing world-class brassieres. This is my guess. She looks way too natural to not be natural. Because if fake boobs can look THAT good then more celebs would have those instead of the bolt-ons and other horrible, obvious-looking things.

  16. lucy2 says:

    Her youngest was born in 2007, so I don’t think it’s child related so much as hormones/weight gain/push up bra.

  17. hadleyb says:

    She has gained a lot of weight, look at her arms, face and stomach area she was not like before ( even after her kids she was not this big).

    I think she might have gotten small implants to get perky but then gained weight as well. She is larger all over. She still looks good but it is weight gain for sure.

  18. NYC_girl says:

    I’m in my 40s and I think that, along with gaining weight has given me a larger chest. Plus a good bra makes a big difference.

    P.S. I love you Ewan.

  19. davidbowie says:

    Who can concentrate on bolt ons when Ewan McGregor is around.

    Ugh Abigail’s outfit is…ugh.

  20. Belle Epoch says:

    Does anyone else think her FACE looks different? I can’t put my finger on it but something has changed. Maybe it’s just the weight thing.

  21. Bored suburbanhousewife says:

    At first I thought it was an old pic of Julia and the young Kiefer Sutherland when they were engaged before I realized it was Ewan!

    Always had a soft spot for Dermot.

  22. smee says:

    Based on these pics, looks like a very subtle job – slight size increase and a lift…….and I’m jelly.


    • mayamae says:

      I was going to say natural, because the pics posted here show breasts that hang a little lower instead up under her chin.

      But on your link, I think she looks like implants on the bikini pic. I am a 34 D-DD, and mine do not look like hers – and I’m not really saggy.

      As much as I despise Julia, I’m not going to mock her for gaining weight. She’s very controlling of her weight (like Gwyneth), and I’m sure she’s obsessing over it. It could be a touch of Karma for fat shaming her sister.

  23. doofus says:

    though he looks like a trust-fund-baby visiting his parents at the country club, Ewan looks SCORCHING hot.

  24. Jayna says:

    She’s had three kids. She probably did, but she kept them tasteful and not so different from how she used to look, just a little fuller. I think she has a pushup bra on in the photo, also.

    I said she looked awful in that red dress I didn’t like yesterday and that her hair was awful, but I take it back. I saw live footage and what didn’t translate well in a still photo really came across well live on the red carpet, her hair and dress on her, everything. She actually was rocking it.

  25. UghInsomnia says:

    I lost a cup size after weaning each of my kids. Started out a full C, then was a B after kiddo #1, and now I’m an A after kiddo #2. Just thought I’d share that boobs don’t always get bigger after having kids.


  26. Cora says:

    Sorry, I can’t get past the Scottish Thunder. My eyes are in heaven!

  27. SpankFassDong says:

    I’m with gogoGorilla. The receptors guiding fat deposition are the same in the upper arms as well as the chest. JR has put on weight in her upper arms, and so the boobs might be real.

    Actually, this visual “test” is accurate about 85% of the time – think Pamela Anderson, with her big chest and skinny arms.

  28. Mitch Buchanan Rocks! says:

    She looks like she gained weight and it looks very good – Bethenney Frankel take note!

  29. HouseofBeatrix says:

    Let’s talk about Juliette Lewis! She looks hot, and that dress is beautiful.

  30. Mandy says:

    Eh, I think it’s just a push up bra and the style of the dress.

  31. Nibbi says:

    Yeah I think she did. They have a sort of amazingly firm sticky-outy thing going on which doesn’t gel with the whole “suddenness” of the boobage, nor her age, nor her skinny skinny legs ie please don’t tell me it’s weight gain.
    Plus, PLUS, I mean, WONK-EYE. Proof she’s not afraid of the plastic.

    Yeah, bitchy. But hey.

  32. Amanda says:

    I thought it was a fairly well-known fact that she got implants for Erin Brokovich? She used her role as a good excuse ;)

  33. Hmm says:

    Haha I envy Juliette Lewis’s double life. By day: classy, wealthy, A-/B List actress, by night: singer in grungy rock band.

  34. Ginger says:

    I noticed this yesterday and commented on it but now that I’m seeing more photos of her it appears that she’s gained some weight. That and a va voomy bra would make her look a lot bigger. But it’s always possible she got bolt ons especially after nursing 3 kids. They go South with most women after that.

  35. Nicolette says:

    Never underestimate the power of a good bra. And having kids changes them as well, they never seem to go back to pre-pregnancy size.

  36. Bananapants says:

    I am 40 & having hormonal changes, and y’all my boobs have gone up 2 cup sizes this summer. No other weight gain, just enormous hooters. My doctor told me this morning that it happens to a lot of premenopausal women. I’m not amused. This might be the case with Julia.

  37. Maggie says:

    I dont think she has implants. Her arms are thicker….she’s starting to go through menopause.

  38. Claudia says:

    Those boobs are real. It looks like a really good push-up bra. Trust me, I know my stuff because 1.) I love boobs! and 2.) I have a small chest; I know the power of amazing bras for whenever I want to fool myself (and others!) into thinking I am cups larger.

  39. LilyT says:

    She looks to have gained a few pounds (not a bad thing IMO). Add a good bra and possibly a lift.

    Back to Scottish Thunder… Mmmmmmm

  40. Apsutter says:

    I think they’re still real and that she either got a lift after her kids(which is totally understandable…if I was Julia Roberts that’s what I would have done) or is just wearing some excellent bras. Just imagine the amazing underthings and lingerie we could have if we all had her money! Sigh….too dream :)

  41. Nikita says:

    ah maybe its just the bra and a great dress, mine are not big but with the right bra and a great fitted dress, they look bigger :-D and then they have AAAALL the attetion they deserve haha ;-)

  42. jane16 says:

    I believe she got the bolt ons before she did Erin Brockovich. She likely has had some kind of surgery since then like had them removed, or replaced or a lift, etc.

  43. jane16 says:

    I don’t know if this link will work, but check out this pic from EB, and note the typical round ball shape and the big gap between the boobs. These do not look real:


    If the link doesn’t work just google Julia Roberts Erin Brockovich and look at the “images”.

  44. SleepyJane says:

    They could be the tear-drop-shaped implant (as opposed to the round ones).

  45. St says:

    Ewan McGregor and Jared Leto are vampires. Someone should seriously study them.

  46. serena says:

    Can also be a good push-up bra ;)
