Julia says she had no idea how much her life had changed since "Pretty Woman". "People say, 'Oh, when Pretty Woman came out it must have really changed your life,' and it's kind of become this joke, but the truth is I was out of town when Pretty Woman came out," she shares.

"I was in another movie in this tiny little town that was showing Star Wars in its first run," she continues, "I remember reading ...'Pretty Woman came out this weekend and made this much money' and I thought, 'Is that a lot of money? Is that good? Is that great?' I didn't really know."
