So Julia Roberts is probably better than anyone to give close friend, ultra-celeb and soon-to-be father of twins George Clooney parenting tips.
While appearing on Ellen Friday, the 49-year-old darling explained parenting boils down to ‘trial and error and a whole lot of tears’ but that her Ocean’s Eleven costar and wife Amal ‘are a great couple and don’t need advice.’

Superlative starlet: The Runaway Bride beauty revealed her fifth time as People’s ‘Most Beautiful Woman’ is both a ‘sweet, but… also embarrassing’ honor
And after three children, the Georgia native still easily earned the title of People’s ‘Most Beautiful Woman’ this year, an honor which Ellen was sure to discuss with the starlet.
Showing off the sweetheart’s ‘Most Beautiful’ People Magazine cover, the hostess asked Julia how it feels to grace the cover for the fifth time.
‘It’s sweet, but it’s also embarrassing… and it’s flattering but we could poll people’s secret thoughts and there’d be a group of people who say “I don’t get it,”‘ the star explained, ‘But I have those days also.’
