* WhenSheSmiles: Her distinct smile is what she's known for. Critics joked that a Julia Roberts movie would do well depending on how often she smiled in it. Given that one of her most high profile flops ''Film/MaryReilly'' featured only two smiles - they may have been onto something. Likewise when a 9000 year old female skeleton was discovered in Bulgaria in 2004, the archaeologists named it 'Julia Roberts' because of the perfect teeth it had - and would therefore have the perfect smile, like the actress.

* AllGirlsLikePonies: She's a trained rider herself and did her own riding for scenes in ''Film/RunawayBride''.

* ContractualPurity: Despite her most famous role being [[Film/PrettyWoman a prostitute]], Julia Roberts had a very wholesome Ingenue image. Notably the character Rachel in ''{{Film/Flatliners}}'' was going to have blackmailed a college professor after having an affair with him - but this was changed so as not to ruin the wholesome image of the actress. But then again she's refused to do nudity, joking that she doesn't want "my algebra teacher to see what my ass looks like".

* FakeIrish: In two films in a row - ''Film/MaryReilly'' and ''Michael Collins''. Critics were not impressed.
* GodSaveUsFromTheQueen: Reportedly the attitude of most of the crew on her films. On ''Film/{{Hook}}'' her behavior was apparently so bad that they called her "Tinkerhell" behind her back. (She later owned up to her behavior on ''Hook,'' saying her breakup with Kiefer Sutherland left her in a bad place.)

* HollywoodHypeMachine: One of the examples that did hold up. After her StarMakingRole with ''Film/PrettyWoman'' she was hyped up considerably. Although she had a few flops in the early 90s, she became one of the highest paid actresses in Hollywood.
* IAmNotLeonardNimoy: When people see her in movies, they see Julia Roberts, as opposed to the characters she plays. She's seen as a wholesome good girl. The few times she's attempted to go against type - ''Film/MaryReilly'', ''Film/MirrorMirror'', ''Film/MichaelCollins'' - have not done well with critics.
* TheIngenue: Was typecast as a wholesome good girl - to the degree where a plot point in ''{{Film/Flatliners}}'' was rewritten[[note]]Rachel's sin was originally going to be that she once had an affair with her college professor; in the finished film it's that she witnessed her father's suicide when he came home from Vietnam[[/note]] so as not to ruin her good girl image.
