Kudos to Marie Claire for putting Julia Roberts on the cover of their December issue and giving the airbrushing department the day off. The August: Osage County star still manages to look gorgeous, but doesn’t look unrecognizable in the Cedric Buchet-lensed shot. Inside, she talks to her buddy Ryan Murphy about the Oscar buzz surrounding her upcoming role in August. “Listen, every actor wants to win an Oscar, full stop,” she explains. “It doesn’t mean you try to design things around how to accomplish that because that’s impossible. Now that I’m a grown-up person and have things of such greater value to pin my idea of joy and fullness on, if something like that were to happen again, my feeling of thrill would be defined in a completely different way.” The new issue hits stands on November 19th.
