Diary of a Diva | Pretty Women is 25

I am an ardent fan of Julia Roberts though I had watched only four films [Notting Hill, Erin Brockovich, Pretty Women, and Eat Pray Love] of Julia Roberts. Pretty Women is definitely the least favorite among all those four movies. Yet, today April 9th 2015, when a picture of her appeared on the online daily newspaper of The Hindu, I couldn't resist reading it. So, I read it. It was usual blah blah blah stuffs of any movie that is celebrating 25 years. At the same time, I liked this particular line in that article - As chick-lit writer Marian Keyes, says, “Relationship gurus always said that an attraction based on friendship and mutual respect was far more likely to stay the course — and they were right.” That is actually nice and I can't agree more with that.
