    Julia Roberts turned 46 on Monday, Oct. 28, but the Academy Award winner celebrated the occasion a day earlier with husband Danny Moder in New York City. The Normal Heart star was spotted in Manhattan's West Village neighborhood on Sunday after finishing brunch with friends at the Little Owl.

    Later that night, according to The New York Post's Page Six, the actress attended opening night of Broadway's Betrayal, starring real-life couple Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz and directed by Tony Award winner Mike Nichols.

    Roberts has a busy few months ahead her, as her twins Hazel and Finn turn 9 on Nov. 28, and her latest movie, August: Osage County, arrives in theaters Christmas Day. And though she's been in show business for more than half her life, Roberts has no intention of slowing down.

    "I love being an actor and I love being a homemaker, and that's good for me," she told E! News during the Toronto International Film Festival in September. "I'm like a closet home ec teacher, really. I can really cook anything."

    Unlike some of her peers, Roberts doesn't want to delve into the world of directing. "I think any housewife would tell you that you're directing pretty much 24/7, so I'll stick to the in-house directing," she said humbly. "It's too much for me."
