Hollywood actress Julia Roberts feels she is too old to take up romantic comedy movie roles.

"I think I'm too old for those silly situations of unrequited love! It becomes less plausible when you're in the 40s to be walking down in the hallways because a boy walks by! I've read a couple lately that are more original and more mature, but they just didn't seem to fit for me," contactmusic.com quoted her as saying.

Julia RobertsThe 42-year-old star insists she doesn't mind taking work at a slower pace now she is a mother to five-year-old twins Hazel and Phinnaeus and son Henry, three.

She said: "I feel my reward for working 18 years before having kids is that I can take the time I need for my family between jobs.

"It's a great relief! You know, somebody asked me the other day and I said, 'God is great'. The world has been a gracious place for me as an actor and I can't explain any of it."
