Julia Roberts has revealed that she is grateful to have shared screen time with the male actors she worked with, as they gave her an early insight into the male psyche.
Roberts, 41, has acted with actors Richard Gere, Mel Gibson, Denzel Washington and Dennis Quaid, and the friendship she formed with them let her have a peek at the world of men.
The actress, who is now married to cameraman Danny Moder, admits that developing a platonic bond with the leading men helped her gain confidence around the opposite sex.
“Early on, I worked with Richard Gere and Denzel (Washington) and Dennis Quaid and Mel Gibson, and all these profoundly smart, handsome guys,” the Daily Express quoted her as telling Allure magazine.
“I was lucky enough to be part of their lives and become friends with them, and it is interesting to understand a solid perspective of the male psyche as a person who’s non-threatening to that guy.
“Men are so revealing when they’re not trying to woo you, when you’re not intimidated or being flirty when, you’re just interested,” she added.
