Oscar-winning actress Julia Roberts aimed to be a vet before embarking upon a career in Hollywood.
The 42-year-old actress wanted to fulfill her dream by helping animals and becoming a vet, but was unable to make it as she belongs to a business class family, Contactmusic reported."I wanted to be a vet. I love animals, but then I discovered how hard science can be. My parents and siblings are all actors, so I grew up around it," Roberts said.
However the actress has no regrets that she could not fulfill her dreams.
“It’s a great way to observe human behaviour and how people react to things. It’s like grown-up pretend. My daughter does it all day, I just get paid for it,” she said.
Roberts is also involved with environmental issues, which are her greatest concern besides her kids.
“My husband and I spend most of the year away from Hollywood in California, where we support Heal The Bay, a non-profit organisation dedicated to keeping Southern California’s coastal waters clean,” said Roberts, who drives a biodiesel car and composts waste.
