Standards of beauty are different for everyone, and they also can be really hard to broach with kids in a healthy, body positive way. In an interview with People, Julia Roberts shared how she discusses beauty with her kids, Henry, Hazel, and Phinnaeus — and her perspective is AMAZING. And it couldn’t be simpler.
“It’s an interesting navigation because you don’t want to mess them up, you don’t want to make them aware of something that was better that they weren’t aware of,” Roberts tells Jess Cagle. “I think as long as everybody smells good and has a smile on their face, that’s a beauty regime!”
Those kids are lucky to have such a positive role model in their life, and from the way Roberts talks about them, it’s clear that the family are a great team.
“They all have a very keen sense of humor,” Roberts said. “They all have a sort of different style of humor, but I do think they are all pretty funny, and I really hope they get that from me because that’s what I tell everybody.”
