When we think about makeovers, Julia Roberts isn’t exactly the first name that comes to mind. The statuesque starlet has been capturing hearts for decades now and has been known as America’s Sweetheart since we were old enough to be in elementary school. While Julia has typically avoided social media in the past, she is now an active Instagram user.
For most of us, amassing a following on social media is something that takes time and effort. Not for Julia, of course. She’s already over 3 million, just by showing up! However, she recently discovered that her puny following was nothing compared to the number that Ellen DeGeneres has been able to draw. Can you believe that the beloved talk show host now has over 60 million followers on the popular photo-sharing platform?
Julia was a good sport about the whole thing. During a recent appearance on Ellen’s couch, she even made a joke about deserving 51 million followers. This nod to her age made the audience laugh but not nearly as much as what came after. Ellen had the perfect idea for boosting Julia’s following: she should follow in the Kardashians’ footsteps.
This famous family has mastered the medium and it seems like every single one of their posts goes viral. Ellen even dressed up Julia in a Kardashian-esque outfit and gave her some fake cleavage to go with it. Once Julia took a closer look at the results of this joke, she decided that new followers would not be worth this type of hassle.
Martha Stewart and Dermot Mulroney also came out to greet Julia. This is one woman who is always full of surprises. If you would like to find out more about this social media strategy meeting, be sure to check out this awesome clip. Now, if you don’t mind, we are going to sit here and cry ourselves to sleep. There is no way we will look this good at 51!
Julia is aging like the finest of wine and does not need any gimmicks to be popular. She is beloved for being herself and isn’t that what it is all about? If you love Julia as much as we do (and let’s be honest, who doesn’t?), we urge you to share this hilarious video with all of your fellow Julia fans as soon as humanly possible. Watching this moment unfold was a lot of fun!
