Lucky lady! Julia Roberts opened up to Allure in its October 2015 cover story about her husband, Danny Moder, and working with him on the set of her upcoming movie, Secret in Their Eyes.
The actress, 47, who plays an FBI investigator out for revenge, said she was lucky to have her cinematographer husband on set for the emotional scenes. "I don't know if I would have succeeded in some of the efforts that I made," Roberts recalled, "if he hadn't been in such close physical proximity to me."
Roberts went on to share a glimpse of rare affection for her husband of 13 years. "There's something about having the safest place in the world for you in the same room," she mused. (The two have recently faced rumors about possible marital issues.)
The couple, who wed in 2002, share young three kids, twins Finn and Hazel, 10, and Henry, 8. The beautiful family of five was snapped last month at a launch event for Kelly Slater's clothing line looking happier than ever.
In addition to her husband, Roberts also opened up to Allure about her famous A-list friends, including the mostly all-male cast of Ocean's Eleven and Twelve, which starred George Clooney, Brad Pitt, and Matt Damon.
"We were all pals," Roberts dished. "At George's house, I remember walking down this path pregnant with Finn and Hazel and turning the corner, and all the boys were sitting at the table having lunch. They were like, 'Oh, come sit down.' I wasn't allowed to walk the stairs. It was such a sweet shift in our relationships because originally, it was all pranks and teasing each other. And here I am pregnant, so it's like pulling out my chair and just making sure I have enough water and, 'Are you feeling okay? You look a little peaked.' 'I'm fine.'"
The actress, famous for her gleaming huge grin, said that smile reflects her everyday life. "I am a genuinely and deeply happy person, which, as life goes on, you realize what great fortune that is," she shared. "To feel like you just have the natural chemistry of joy."
The October 2015 issue of Allure hits newsstands on Sept. 29.
