Surgery-free and proud: Julia Roberts proudly displays her wrinkles at Eat, Pray, Love premiere
By Simon Cable

Natural woman: Julia Roberts says 'The secret ingredient of beauty is being happy - and maybe a little eye cream'

While rival stars don't hesitate to put their features under the knife, Julia Roberts proudly remains a surgery free zone.

The 42-year-old actress, face of the cosmetic company Lancome, made no attempt to conceal her wrinkles at the premiere of her latest film.

Asked about her decision to embrace the ageing process, she said: 'The secret ingredient of beauty is being happy. And maybe a little eye cream.'

Miss Roberts, a mother of three, found fame 20 years ago with Richard Gere in Pretty Woman.

She railed against cosmetic surgery in a recent interview, saying: 'Your face tells a story and it shouldn't be a story about your drive to the doctor's office.'

Miss Roberts was visiting Tokyo where she was promoting her film Eat, Pray, Love, about a 40-something woman who travels to Italy, India and Bali after going through a divorce.

She has revealed that she is now a practising Hindu and goes to temple to 'chant and pray and celebrate'.

Born to Baptist and Catholic parents, she is thought to have made the religious conversion while shooting the movie.

She added that she hopes to be reincarnated as 'something quiet' after the stresses of celebrity.

After failing to set box offices alight in the Western world with her new film, Julia Roberts will be hoping for a better reception in the Far East.

So to possibly try to butter up her Japanese fan base, she took inspiration from the country's traditional dress.

The actress arrived in a kimono-style gold dress, which showed off her tall, willowy figure as she took to the stage at the Roppongi Hills Arena
Julia and husband Daniel Moder, 41, flew into Narita Airport on a private jet and they plan to spend a few days exploring the country.

Despite a film career that has spanned two decades, this is her first ever visit to Japan.

Yesterday she held a press conference and photo call in Tokyo hours after arriving.
But she avoided giving a proper answer when asked why it had taken her so long to visit the Land of the Rising Sun.

She said: It's just my good fortune to finally find myself here in Tokyo with all of you nice people.'
