Julia Roberts may be taking the Evil Queen act a bit too far.

The Mirror Mirror actress, 44, opened up on The Ellen DeGeneres Show Friday about how she entertains herself at home: by startling her kids with husband Daniel Moder, twins Hazel and Phinnaeus, 7, and Henry, 4.

"If I hear them coming, and they don't know where I am in the house, I crouch down in their private space. They come in [to the room] and I just jump out," Roberts explained.

The best part? "Little people can catch air...they just vault!" the Eat, Pray, Love star shared.

"Of course that's going to keep you doing it," host DeGeneres joked. "If you can see them fly in the air like that."

But as much fun as she has causing trouble on the homefront, Roberts admitted her activity of choice may have gotten a little out of hand lately. "I realized I was getting too much joy out of it, so I had to tone it down," the star told DeGeneres. "It's so wrong!"
