Julia Roberts expects arrival of twins by around Christmas

Julia Roberts, pregnant with twins, plans to take a break from movies. "I'm not planning anything," Roberts told Newsweek magazine. The Oscar-winning actor has two films set for release in December: Closer and Ocean's 12. Roberts, who won the best-actress Oscar in 2001 for Erin Brokovich, married cinematographer Daniel Moder in July 2002, writes The London Free Press.

Julia Roberts has two movies set for release in December, but it's the other winter release that she has most on her mind -- the birth of her twins.

With motherhood on the horizon, the 36 year old actress is planning a break from her busy Hollywood schedule to make room for diaper duty. The Oscar-winning actress has two movies coming in December, but after that she has no plans for a return anytime soon.

'I'm not planning anything,' Roberts said in a Newsweek magazine interview. 'I can't imagine how big I'm going to get in the next three months, but ... you just kind of play it as it comes. I'm allowed to do that, aren't I?'

The actress has not divulged the date the twins are expected. It has been reported to be somewhere around the Christmas season.

Her other Holiday releases will be -- 'Ocean's 12,' Steven Soderbergh's sequel to 2001's casino heist caper, starring George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Matt Damon and Catherine Zeta-Jones; and 'Closer,' an intense relationship drama directed by Mike Nichols and costarring Jude Law, Natalie Portman and Clive Owen, says Elites TV.

Movie beauty Julia Roberts has been informed by doctors her unborn twins are a boy and a girl.

The Erin Brockovich star - who will take a hiatus from her hectic Hollywood career to focus on raising her children with husband Danny Moder - requested to know the sex of the babies due in January.

Roberts has just wrapped filming sequel Ocean's Twelve in Europe and is determined to keep her schedule clear to allow her time to prepare for family life, told Clear Channel News.
