Julia Roberts' children have only just realised she's famous.

The 'August: Osage County' actress has revealed her children, nine-year-old twins Hazel and Phinnaeus and six-year old Henry, are currently coming to terms with the fact their mother is part of the Hollywood A-list and have dozens of questions about her star status.

She said: “They're only just discovering it. My daughter, especially, asks a lot of questions that I find it hard to answer modestly! She asked, talking about one of my best friends, 'Does Bonnie know you're famous?'

“I said, 'I think she knows'. 'How did she find out, did you tell her?' She's trying to solve an enigma, so she wants to know how others figured it out.”

Julia - who is married to cameraman Daniel Moder - didn't feel the need to explain to her children she was famous or even show them her films until they started expressing a desire to understand her jet-setting lifestyle.

She told France's ELLE magazine: “They've just seen 'Hook', it was the first time they've seen me on screen. They're still young, they weren't curious until now. My husband and I believe children will tell you want they want to know when they want to know it, regardless of the subject. They're wise enough to take you where they need to go.” - BANG Showbiz
