November 6, 2007 (7:02 am) GMT
Julia Roberts graces the cover of Vanity Fair's December 2007 issue, sharing her thoughts on such matters, as being done having more children and the frenzy surrounding nowadays young celebrities.

Steps her feet back on the entertainment industry soon after giving birth to son Henry Daniel Moder back on June 18th and is having her upcoming big screen project, "," hits the theaters this Christmas, needless to say that does busy juggling her professional acting career with her personal life as wife and mother. She, indeed, willingly shares the intimate part of her life to Vanity Fair magazine for its December 2007 issue.

Like a fine wine, Roberts looks just getting better with age for the cover of the publication, taken exclusively by Michael Thompson. In a joint interview with Vanity Fair features editor Jane Sarkin and V.F. West Coast editor Krista Smith, the actress discusses such issues, from being done having more children to the frenzy surrounding nowadays young celebrities.

On the latest issue, the frenzy surrounding nowadays young celebrities, Roberts thinks "it's just grotesque. It's like a circus sideshow. I don't know why anybody would even want to go into show business these days, with all of the different magazines and shows. It just wouldn't be worth it. And it's too fast. Before, you could build a career over years and many movies. Now it's like you do one good movie and they throw a ton of money at you and a ton of attention at you. You're being constructed outside of yourself before you even know who you are, and what you are, and how you want to do it, and why you want to do it."

Relating that matter to paparazzi taking photos of celebrities' children, the movie beauty feels "it's so demeaning the way they behave, and I hate the fact that I even put any of my energy into thinking about it or being stressed about it. And really, more than anything, it just has to do with my kids. There's no reason to take pictures of celebrities' children other than for people to say, "Oh, they're cute." I think magazines shouldn't run pictures of people's kids. I have a problem with that. I also have a problem with the whole notion that, if I have Henry in a sling, I'm hiding him. He's a baby and I'm carrying him around, and so's the lady across the street. I get pissed off, because I think that it's inhuman to chase a woman with her children."

Having her own point of view towards celebrities, Roberts says "We're all the same. Why can't we get on board with this? That we're all the same. Some have cooler jobs, some have less cool jobs, some have longer legs, some are nicer people, but we're all the same. We're all orbiting the same sun."

In a more personal matter, Roberts reveals her willingness not to have more children, telling Vanity Fair, "At this point I'm having so much fun with them. You only have so much energy and you want to put so much energy into each child. I wouldn't know how to have five kids. And they're really a good trio, these three."

In addition to Henry, Roberts and her cinematographer husband Daniel Moder, also have twin daughters, they are Hazel Patricia and son Phinnaeus Walter.

The December issue of Vanity Fair hits newsstands in New York and Los Angeles on Wednesday November 7th and nationally on November 13th.
