Julia Roberts in Dior at NYC ‘Normal Heart’ premiere: lovely or unflattering?


Here are some photos from last night’s NYC premiere of the HBO movie The Normal Heart. Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt were in attendance, but they’ll get a separate post. This post is for everybody else! Believe it or not, Julia Roberts is wearing a straight-from-the-runway look from Dior. Seriously! I was annoyed because I thought she was just wearing some summer dress and had decided at the last minute to put a heavy blazer on top of the dress, but no. This is the original Dior look. While I think the blazer saves the look from being “too young,” I really hate that blazer. And I dislike Julia’s hair too – she’s too old to wear it half-covering her face.


Here’s Liv Tyler in Dolce & Gabbana. It’s cute, I don’t even hate the “coin” design. I would have taken the lace sleeves off though.


Wait, is Sarah Paulson dating Prince Oberyn (Pedro Pascal)?! Maybe? Sarah has said she’s bisexual. So… maybe? Damn, Paulson is a baller.


And here are some of the gentlemen from The Normal Heart: Matt Bomer, Mark Ruffalo, Jim Parsons (with his boyfriend/partner Todd Spiewak) and Taylor Kitsch.

    Matt Bomer – if Angelina Jolie was born a man.

    • Aurie says:

      Look at James Haven Voight….yikes! Honestly, Angelina has some very masculine features, like a strong jaw, chiseled cheekbones and box shaped nose, but it’s offset almost perfectly by her feminine features like huge lips, big eyes, and big forehead.

  2. Christin says:

    She is a complete fashion miss most of the time. As for the hair, the lighter color washes her out.

  3. AG-UK says:

    Julia looks good from the waist up not sure what is happening with the skirt/dress underneath. Matt Bomer is beautiful, love Mark Ruffulo…

  4. lizzy says:

    I think you’d go blind if you stared at Matt Bomer for too long. He is so beautiful.

    Is that hair really “too old” for Julia? How?

    • Shelby says:

      Yeah, I didn’t get the ‘too old’ comment regarding the hair either

    • KJP says:

      Me either! I didn’t find that her hair was too much in her face – and hair that gets in the way of your face is bad at any age, not just over 40. Anyway, I think she actually looks really good here.

  5. Kiddo says:

    The jacket is too big or improperly tailored and is snagging the ruffled skirt hemline. It looks a mess. I don’t even think those two pieces belong together.

    • kri says:

      This. Jacket. Sucks. But Mark Ruffalo is perfect. I lurrrrve him so much. The curls, the eyes, oh yeah. That soft voice. One of my faves. I admit (with no shame) that I will watch 13 Going On 30 for MR

  6. j.eyre says:

    I like Julia’s look but then, I never really got over the 80s in the first place. I would have accessory with something other than a smug expression, however.

    I love Matt Bomer’s ensemble – and not just because his aphasia-inducingly beautiful.

  7. Esti says:

    I like Julia’s coat but not with that dress. And I actually like her hair as well.

  8. shellybean says:

    I love Liv. She has the best Instagram ever.

    Julia looks fine. I don’t expect much from her in the style department, so whatever. I don’t think she’s “too old” for this hair, either. She may be 46, but she doesn’t look it.

  9. blue marie says:

    I don’t have a problem with what Julia is wearing, she looks fine.
    Liv is awesome, but I almost always prefer to see her hair down, she has such pretty hair.
    You go Sarah, he’s a hottie.
    As for the men, they all look handsome, love Ruffalo’s hair.

  10. MissBB says:

    Mark Ruffalo is hot. Jim Parsons and his partner are cute together.

  11. Greata says:

    LOVE….Sarah Paulson..!!!!!!!!!

  12. HappyMom says:

    Isn’t Sarah Paulson a lesbian? Pretty sure she’s not dating that guy, even if he is a prince.

    • EllaM says:

      She is, but nobody seems to know even though she’s open about it for years now.

      • Mayamae says:

        I think it’s pretty well know. The tabs claimed a couple of years ago that she was conducting an onset affair with Jessica Lange.

      • blue marie says:

        She is BI. From what I understand Cherry Jones was her first long term girlfriend. (I forget where I read that though)

  13. Lol says:

    you have to be a bold man to wear three different patterns, Matt Bomer (and a damn hot one to be able to pull it off)

  14. Stormsmama says:

    I love how happy Jim Parsons is 🙂

    Mark R. is so awesome.

    Julia looks like she rolled out of bed, threw on her daughters nightgown and then borrowed her drivers blazer when she spilled wine on her nightie in the limo. But I like her shoes.

  15. Kali says:

    I’m sorry, were there pictures of other people on this post besides Pedro Pascal? *fans self*

  16. harpreet says:

    Red Viper!!!!!!!!!!!

  17. Maggi says:

    I think Julia looks good, I like the blazer and I have no problem with her hair, it doesn’t read too young to me at all. It is actually drawn back quite neatly and looks chic. Many mature French women wear their hair like this and it looks elegant.

    I find the posters’ comments interesting, this whole ‘too young’ and she is ‘too old’ for thing is quite age-ist, not to mention inaccurate. Compare to Liv Tyler who looks like a tragic mess. Liv’s dress is busy and unflattering and her pulled back hair makes her look matronly and drawn.

    And I say all this as someone who finds Julia annoying and can’t bear to sit through any of her films.

  18. Abby_J says:

    I am just not getting Julia Roberts outfit at all.

    Matt Bomer and Mark Ruffalo, in the same picture? My day is made. I adore them both.

    I guess Kirk Cameron wasn’t available to join them at the premiere?

  19. Swordspoint says:

    I think Julia’s hair looks lovely, actually. “Too young”? It’s not pigtails or anything; I don’t get this comment.

    I hate the lower half of the blazer, though.

  20. Jayna says:

    Julia has really been looking pretty lately and kind of sexy again with her hair. I see a divorce on the horizon. She’s getting ready for single dating life.

    • Christin says:

      That’s an interesting theory. I saw some happy family photos of them in the last day or so. I’ve wondered if they would make it once the kids are older. Maybe they really are in it for the long haul, but I’ve also wondered if he was just a conquest and she wanted to prove people wrong after the messy way they got together. He always looks like a little boy to me.

  21. neha says:

    Not saying that Matt Bomer isn’t gorgeous, but Tim Riggins is where it’s at.

  23. Kosmos says:

    I never seem to like the way Julia looks, why? First, I DO like the way she has her hair!! It’s different from being down, and she can wear it, and no, it doesn’t look TOO young. BUT her outfit is ummm, not my first choice. The dress may be a bit too short for her, and part of the hem is yanked up under the jacket, not a good look for photography. I’d say the jacket is so very professional looking while the dress is more glam or dressy. I would also wear different shoes altogether.

  24. Deedee says:

    Oh, you say Julia’s in there in another mess of an outfit? I just keep scrolling through all the spiffed up male hotness in this post, over and over and over. . .
