Julia Roberts: My famous hairy-armpit reveal was a mistake, not a feminist statement

Julia Roberts on the set of "Busy Tonight."

Leave it to Busy Philipps, an actress who came of age in the 1990s, to bring up a very ’90s-specific photo of Julia Roberts during the actress’ appearance on Philipps’ new E! Talk show “Busy Tonight.”.

Philipps asked Roberts about the famous photo taken of her at 1999’s “Notting Hill” premiere in which she famously flashed her armpit hair while waving to fans, wondering whether she was trying to make a statement with her visible body hair.

“Also just because of feminism, I’m always thinking about these things – you know, you rocked the hairy armpit at the “Notting Hill” premiere, and you never really said if that was like a statement,” Philipps said.

“The picture is vivid in my mind actually, from that, from that moment,” Roberts said. “I think I just hadn’t really calculated my, my sleeve length and the waving, and how those two things would go together and reveal personal things about me … So it wasn’t so much a statement as it’s just part of the statement I make as a human on the planet, for myself.”.

In short – no, that wasn’t a feminist statement from Roberts so much as much as it was a too-short sleeve.
